If you can’t toot your own horn on New Years, when can you? As a citizen scientist the Tusk is darn proud — and thankful to the credentialed lead authors — to close 2020 with exactly 100 co-author citations. More interesting than my navel, perhaps, is the trend in citations concerning the Younger Dryas Impact Hypothesis in general since 2007. I probably represent a fair proxy for the popularity of the research and you can see my stats on Google Scholar here. If you slide the bar right to left you can see the history of the hypothesis in science publishing through the lens of my citations.
