Climate research is of high priority, and this is felt by GEUS’ professor in glaciology Jason E. Box, who has now entered the very top of researchers on the list ‘Highly Cited Researchers 2019’. The list is published by Web of Science Group and it identifies the latest decade of most influential researchers, who produced multiple highly cited scientific articles ranking in the top 1% by citations for their field and year of publication.
Recognition spurs on to do more
Jason E. Box has participated in more than 30 expeditions in Greenland to study climate changes and monitor the development of the ice, been co-author of a report from IPCC (Panel on Climate Change) and been a professor at several American universities. To be included in the ‘Highly Cited Researchers 2019’ list makes the professor proud.
“I’m very proud and humble that my research has been so highly cited by researchers all over the world. This means that my results contribute to support other colleagues’ research and path to understand the climate – and that is a great honour, if you ask me. Such a recognition only spurs me on to do even more for the future climate through my research,” says Jason E. Box and he continues:
“Knowledge about Greenland and the development of the ice is vital for us to find solutions for the climate changes we see today. This is only possible if the sum of our knowledge and research is widely broadcast to the scientific community, to politicians, decision makers and the public. And to be included on this list contributes to this.”
