Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Impact crater, Breccia, Mineralogy and Paleontology. Christian Koeberl has researched Geochemistry in several fields, including Petrology and Meteorite. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sedimentary rock, Metamorphic rock and Earth science in addition to Impact crater.

Christian Koeberl combines subjects such as Quartz and Impactite with his study of Breccia. His study in Mineralogy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Lechatelierite, Hydrothermal circulation, Infrared spectroscopy and Chemical composition. His work in the fields of Paleontology, such as Cretaceous and Stratigraphy, overlaps with other areas such as Extinction event and Extinction.

His most cited work include:

  • The Chicxulub Asteroid Impact and Mass Extinction at the Cretaceous-Paleogene Boundary (792 citations)
  • The convincing identification of terrestrial meteorite impact structures: What works, what doesn't, and why (326 citations)
  • Catastrophic events and mass extinctions : impacts and beyond (291 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Impact crater, Impact structure, Breccia and Meteorite. Geochemistry and Mineralogy are frequently intertwined in his study. The Mineralogy study combines topics in areas such as Tektite and Chemical composition.

His work carried out in the field of Impact crater brings together such families of science as Paleontology, Quartz, Earth science and Geomorphology. His work focuses on many connections between Impact structure and other disciplines, such as Petrology, that overlap with his field of interest in Core. His work investigates the relationship between Breccia and topics such as Volcanic rock that intersect with problems in Felsic.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (63.72%)
  • Impact crater (39.61%)
  • Impact structure (28.93%)

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

  • Geochemistry (63.72%)
  • Meteorite (21.93%)
  • Impact structure (28.93%)

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

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Meteorite, Impact structure, Astrobiology and Impact crater. Geochemistry is frequently linked to Chondrite in his study. Christian Koeberl interconnects Olivine and Crust in the investigation of issues within Chondrite.

He has included themes like Crystallization, Meteoroid, Earth and Analytical chemistry in his Meteorite study. His multidisciplinary approach integrates Impact structure and Shocked quartz in his work. His work deals with themes such as Transition layer and Humanities, which intersect with Petrography.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Dust of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko collected by Rosetta/MIDAS: classification and extension to the nanometre scale (23 citations)
  • Dust of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko collected by Rosetta/MIDAS: classification and extension to the nanometer scale (22 citations)
  • Overestimation of threat from 100 Mt-class airbursts? High-pressure evidence from zircon in Libyan Desert Glass (9 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Basalt

Christian Koeberl mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Impact crater, Meteorite, Zircon and Impact structure. His study in Libyan desert glass, Sedimentary rock, Petrography, Magma and Basaltic andesite is carried out as part of his Geochemistry studies. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Pilbara Craton, Botryoidal and Greenstone belt, Archean.

His Impact crater research includes themes of Art history, Meteor, Meteoroid, Bolide and Atmosphere. His Meteorite study incorporates themes from Analytical chemistry, Tin, Silicate, Earth and Isotope fractionation. His Impact structure research incorporates elements of Shock metamorphism, Horizon, Thermochronology, Strewn field and Fission track dating.
