Top 100 collaborations in Earth & Environmental Sciences

The table shows the top collaborating partners ranked by their bilateral collaboration score (CS) in Earth and environmental sciences for the three-year period from 2015 to 2017. The CS sums the fractional count of collaborative papers from the two partnering institutions. Also shown is the article count (AC) of collaborative articles from the two partnering institutions over the same period.
