Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) has announced that the SciFinder interface now includes a series of APIs that allows researchers and developers to integrate SciFinder functionality and the CAS database with third party research tools and workflows. SciFinder constitutes the world's largest chemistry database, and many scientist use the service to launch new research and as a reference check throughout the research process.
The API for the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology’s (IRIS) Seismographs in Schools Program returns XML. It retrieves stations, station information, events, event information, and networks affiliated with IRIS.
The HQCasanova Weekly CO2 API is incredibly simple. It's also a frighteningly clear measurement of how our planet is doing. It measures the level of CO2 in the air in parts per million (ppm), a major player in causing global climate disruption.
