July 2010


From the database of Essential Science IndicatorsSM from Thomson Reuters, this list of Fast Moving Fronts has been generated by a comparison of the data sets for the current period of January 2004-February 28, 2010, and the previous period of January 2004-December 31, 2009 (sliding 6-year period).

As part of this bimonthly processing, Special Topics identifies the Research Fronts that are growing most rapidly in each of the 22 major fields covered by Essential Science Indicators. Fast Moving Fronts are those having the largest percentage increase in number of core papers from one period to the next in their respective fields. Some fronts may have been mapped.

Cartoon showing the framework of melting and mantle flow beneath mid-ocean ridges, the regions of most voluminous volcanism on Earth. The figure shows the finding from the study of Nature 440[7084]: 659-62, 30 (March 2006) paper, which demonstrated that under the influence of trace carbon dioxide the onset of partial melting occurs as deep as 300 km, a depth far deeper than the major melting of silicate rocks at ~60-70 km.
