From the database of
Science IndicatorsSM, this list of Fast Moving Fronts
has been generated by a comparison of the data sets for the current period
of July 2002-June 30, 2008, and the previous period of May 2002-April 30,
2008 (sliding 6-year period).
Two Research Fronts were selected for mapping from the list of Fast Moving
Fronts from this period. They are:
Important steps towards using ultracold Rydberg atoms in
quantum information processing.
GREAT LAKES COASTAL WETLANDS; DIATOM-BASED
WATER QUALITY MODEL; GREAT LAKES WETLAND INDICATORS;
NORTHERN GREAT LAKES MARSHES; US GREAT LAKES BASIN
Use of ecological indicators requires clearly stated
objectives: recognition of spatial and temporal scales,
assessment of statistical variability, precision, accuracy,
and coupling with economic and social indicators.
