The Project for Intercomparison of Land-surface Parameterization Schemes (PILPS) scored the top citation mark in Linda Butler’s review: Monitoring Australia’s Scientific Research (Butler, 2001). This top-cited earth sciences paper scored the largest number of citations in 1997 (the last of the three years Butler reviewed) and was the first description of the ongoing intercomparison of land-surface parameterization schemes in which the participating schemes are compared internationally. This Australian-led paper represented a world first for land-surface modelling in which research organisations evaluated their models’ simulations against observational data. The top cited research (Chen et al., 1997), which involved participants from all around the world in 28 different research institutions, was led by Tian Chen, Ann Henderson-Sellers and Andrew Pitman, then, all at Macquarie University.
