Scientists at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies recently voted "Simultaneously mitigating near-term climate change and improving human health and food security" by Drew Shindell et al. as the top work among over 100 research publications by institute staff published in 2012. The paper was published in the journal Science in January.
Runners-up included "Perception of climate change" by James Hansen et al.; " Aerosol direct, indirect, semi-direct and surface albedo effects from sector contributions based on the IPCC AR5 emissions for pre-industrial and present day conditions" by Susanne Bauer and Surabi Menon; "The added value to global model projections of climate change by dynamical downscaling: A case study over the continental US using the GISS-ModelE2 and WRF models" by Pavan Racherla et al.; and "Adjustment to radiative forcing in a simple coupled ocean-atmosphere model" by Ron Miller.
