A group from Stanford University recently created a World Ranking of Scientists—based on publications and citations. The list of the 160,000 scientists that make the 2% higher ranking includes three researchers from TUHH in the area of Civil Engineering (in this study it also includes Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering). From our institute, two researchers are included in the top 900 (international) and top 10 (national) of the total 42, 054 authors in this field: Prof. Wolfgang Fricke: international #194, in Germany #3 Prof. Sören Ehlers: international #528, in Germany #8
