James W. C. White named Highly Cited Geoscientist by ISI Web of Knowledge

James W.C. White was named one of the most highly cited geoscientists by the ISI Web of Knowledge for the period 1981-1999. This select group comprised less than one-half of one percent of all publishing researchers and is an extraordinary accomplishment. The highly cited list at will grow to include the top 250 preeminent individual researchers in each of 21 subject categories (life sciences, medicine, physical sciences, engineering and social sciences) who have demonstrated great influence in their field as measured by citations to their work--the intellectual debt acknowledged by their colleagues. One of the goals of the list is to identify individuals, departments and laboratories that have made fundamental contributions to the advancement of science and technology in recent decades.
