Information Trends and Resources

  • Frederick W. Stoss


Bibliometric analysis has been used to track the growth of information on the topic of acidic deposition (Stoss, 1988; Lancaster and Lee, 1985). Such tracking can be useful in the identification of topics with scientific or policy significance. For environmental topics that are driven by strong policy developments (e.g. acid rain, global warming, hazardous waste disposal, ozone depletion), this tracking procedure can be useful for staying abreast of rapidly changing events and developments.
