Today, the Reuters list of the world’s top climate scientists was released, featuring seven extraordinary University of Queensland climate researchers.

Reuters identified and ranked 1,000 climate academics according to how influential they are.

The rankings are based on how many research papers scientists have published on topics related to climate change; how often those papers are cited by other scientists in similar fields of study, such as biology, chemistry or physics; and how often those papers are referenced in the lay press, social media, policy papers and other outlets.

Below are UQ's winners and their ranks, with the full list published on The Reuters Hot List.
