The Springer journal Advances in Atmospheric Sciences (AAS) was recently named a Rising Star among geosciences journals by ScienceWatch.com. According to Essential Science Indicators SM from Thomson Reuters , the journal's current citation record includes 764 papers cited a total of 1,658 times between January 1, 1998, and February 29, 2008.
Advances in Atmospheric Sciences was launched in 1984 and offers rapid publication of original scientific papers on the dynamics, physics and chemistry of the atmosphere and oceans. The journal is sponsored by The Chinese Committee for the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS) and the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. It is co-published by Springer and Science Press.
Co-Chief Editors Guoxiong Wu, Huijun Wang and Da-Lin Zhang speculated on the reasons for the high citation rate. Wu said, "It may be attributed to the international orientation of the journal, including the close collaboration with Springer, the periodically recycled international editorial board, and the significant increase of international submissions." He added, "Moreover, with Springer's flexible distribution channels and marketing strategies, accessibility of AAS has also greatly improved since 2006, which is shown in AAS's subscription increase and downloading rates."
Essential Science Indicators SM from Thomson Reuters provides citation rankings of scientists, institutions, countries, and journals broken out by broad fields of science. A total of 10 years of Thomson Reuters citation data, plus a number of consecutive bimonthly periods during the current year, are used to determine the rankings. The entities that have achieved the highest percentage increase in total citations are singled out as Rising Stars in their respective fields.Advances in Atmospheric Sciences

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
