Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Mars Exploration Program, Astrobiology, Martian, Diagenesis and Geochemistry. His research in Mars Exploration Program intersects with topics in Inorganic chemistry and Halite. Alberto G. Fairén has researched Astrobiology in several fields, including Hydrothermal circulation, Lead and Habitability.

The various areas that he examines in his Martian study include Atmosphere and Atmospheric sciences. Alberto G. Fairén has included themes like Impact crater and Meridiani Planum in his Geochemistry study. While the research belongs to areas of Impact crater, Alberto G. Fairén spends his time largely on the problem of Noachian, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Olympus Mons, Drainage basin, Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter and Paleontology.

His most cited work include:

  • Volatile and organic compositions of sedimentary rocks in Yellowknife Bay, Gale crater, Mars. (250 citations)
  • Organic molecules in the Sheepbed Mudstone, Gale Crater, Mars (238 citations)
  • Organic molecules in the Sheepbed Mudstone, Gale Crater, Mars (238 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Mars Exploration Program, Astrobiology, Martian, Geochemistry and Impact crater. His Mars Exploration Program study incorporates themes from Paleontology and Earth science. His Astrobiology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Planet and Habitability.

His work deals with themes such as Exploration of Mars, Geophysics, Crust and Regolith, which intersect with Martian. The study incorporates disciplines such as Structural basin, Noachian and Meridiani Planum in addition to Geochemistry. His research on Impact crater also deals with topics like

  • Tharsis, which have a strong connection to Elysium,
  • Fluvial which intersects with area such as Glacial period.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mars Exploration Program (85.57%)
  • Astrobiology (54.98%)
  • Martian (37.46%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Mars Exploration Program (85.57%)
  • Astrobiology (54.98%)
  • Gale crater (9.28%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Alberto G. Fairén mostly deals with Mars Exploration Program, Astrobiology, Gale crater, Geochemistry and Martian. His studies in Mars Exploration Program integrate themes in fields like Flood myth, Aeolian processes and Earth science. The concepts of his Astrobiology study are interwoven with issues in Terrestrial planet, Icy moon and Habitability.

His work carried out in the field of Gale crater brings together such families of science as Paleontology, Curiosity rover and Ridge. His Geochemistry study which covers Impact crater that intersects with Butte and Stratigraphic unit. His work in Martian is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Extraterrestrial Environment.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Surface clay formation during short-term warmer and wetter conditions on a largely cold ancient Mars (52 citations)
  • Surface clay formation during short-term warmer and wetter conditions on a largely cold ancient Mars (52 citations)
  • Unprecedented rains decimate surface microbial communities in the hyperarid core of the Atacama Desert. (28 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology

His primary scientific interests are in Mars Exploration Program, Astrobiology, Martian, Life on Mars and Ecology. His research in Mars Exploration Program intersects with topics in Geochemistry and Outcrop. Alberto G. Fairén usually deals with Astrobiology and limits it to topics linked to Habitat and Martian surface and Aeolian processes.

His Martian study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Geologic record, Clay minerals and Weathering. His Life on Mars research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Planetary protection, Exploration of Mars, Biosignature and Biosphere. His work on Desert climate and Microbial biodiversity as part of general Ecology research is frequently linked to Microbial mat and Liquid water, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.
