The list recognizes research scientists and social scientists who have demonstrated exceptional influence – reflected through their publication of multiple papers frequently cited by their peers during the last decade.

This year’s list includes 6,938 individuals from around the world whose papers rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year in the Web of Science, a Nov. 15, 2022, press release from the University said.

Professor Jain studies the interaction between climate, biophysical processes and human activities such as deforestation and agriculture intensification.

His team developed a global model-data integration framework that makes use of satellite and ground-based observations to study how those interactions modify the net fluxes or ups and downs, of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, and surface fluxes of water and energy.

He is a contributor to major assessments of the IPCC, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Jain has won numerous awards and honors, including the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development Award and inclusion on the Reuters list of top climate scientists, the press release said.
