Eric Saltzman featured in piece on the effect of the government shutdown on research

Atmospheric researcher Eric Saltzman lucked out. He secured his latest National Science Foundation grant just before the agency went dark.

Still, the University of California, Irvine, professor of earth system science sees cloudy skies ahead for government-funded science amid a partial government shutdown. No new grants are being offered, meetings are being canceled, and financial burdens are being shifted.

ESS faculty listed as some of the most highly-cited researchers of 2018

Professors Steven Allison, Michael Goulden, Jim Randerson, Eric Rignot, Isabella Velicogna, and Jasper Vrugt have been named to the 2018 list of the world’s most impactful researchers, based on the number of times their published studies have been cited by other researchers over the past decade. Researchers on the list are in the top 1 percent of all scholars whose work has been cited by others.
