HAS Regents Professor Hoshin Gupta and HAS Professor Xubin Zeng -- both College of Science Galileo Fellows -- were among the UA College of Science faculty members featured in the Arizona Daily Star Annual UA Science Magazine on Sunday, January 13.
Zeng was featured for his recent work in identifying the differences in snowpack changes and trends in the eastern and western U.S. Zeng's team compiled and analyzed 35 years' worth of data from citizen volunteers who measured snow depth at one specific point and from networks that measure both snow depth and snow mass operated by government agenci...

Congratulations to HAS Regents Professor Hoshin Gupta on his recent selection (again!) as a 2018 Highly Cited Researcher by Clarivate Analytics!
Hoshin was named in his field (ranked in environment/ecology) and more generally "across fields," a new distinction this year.
Those named to the Highly Cited list are among an elite group recognized for exceptional research demonstrated by production of multiple highly cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for field and year in Web of Science.
This distinction derives not from Clarivate Analytics but from Hoshin's peers who have, time and... Read More

A team of researchers led by UA HAS Professor Xubin Zeng has mapped exactly where in the Western U.S. snow mass has declined from 1982 to 2016. The team mapped the changes in snow mass onto a grid of squares 2.5-miles on a side over the entire contiguous U.S. "A person could practically find the trend for their neighborhood," said first author Zeng. "Grid size for previous studies was about 40 miles on a side. This is the first time anyone has assessed the trend at the 2.5-mile by 2.5-mile pixel level over the 35-year period (1982-2016)."
Researchers found that in some areas of the Western U.S... Read More
