Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Ecology
  • Sedimentary rock

David A. Fike spends much of his time researching Paleontology, Geochemistry, Meridiani Planum, Mineralogy and Aeolian processes. David A. Fike combines subjects such as Carbon cycle, Sea level and Doushantuo Formation with his study of Paleontology. His research brings together the fields of Facies and Geochemistry.

His work in Meridiani Planum addresses subjects such as Hematite, which are connected to disciplines such as Graded bedding and Impact crater. David A. Fike interconnects Sedimentary rock and Mars Exploration Program in the investigation of issues within Aeolian processes. He has researched Pyrite in several fields, including Seawater, Sulfur cycle and Environmental chemistry.

His most cited work include:

  • Oxidation of the Ediacaran Ocean (650 citations)
  • Fossil steroids record the appearance of Demospongiae during the Cryogenian period (459 citations)
  • Provenance and diagenesis of the evaporite-bearing Burns formation, Meridiani Planum, Mars (425 citations)

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

His main research concerns Paleontology, Geochemistry, Pyrite, Mineralogy and δ34S. He works mostly in the field of Paleontology, limiting it down to concerns involving Isotopes of carbon and, occasionally, Carbon cycle. His Geochemistry research incorporates themes from Sedimentary depositional environment and Meridiani Planum.

His research in Meridiani Planum intersects with topics in Impact crater and Hematite. His Pyrite research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Total organic carbon, Sulfur cycle, Isotope analysis, Evaporite and Seawater. His Mineralogy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Microbial mat and Hydrogen sulfide.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (31.95%)
  • Geochemistry (28.99%)
  • Pyrite (19.53%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (28.99%)
  • Pyrite (19.53%)
  • δ34S (15.98%)

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

David A. Fike mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Pyrite, δ34S, Sedimentary depositional environment and Environmental chemistry. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Geochemistry, focusing on Biogeochemical cycle and, on occasion, Carbon cycle, Hydrogen sulfide and Ocean current. His Pyrite study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Organic matter and Anoxic waters.

His study in Sedimentary depositional environment is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Abyssal zone, Carbonate rock and Biogeochemistry. His Geochronology study is concerned with the field of Paleontology as a whole. He integrates Paleontology and Extinction in his research.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Phototrophic extracellular electron uptake is linked to carbon dioxide fixation in the bacterium Rhodopseudomonas palustris. (36 citations)
  • Pyrite sulfur isotopes constrained by sedimentation rates: Evidence from sediments on the East China Sea inner shelf since the late Pleistocene (20 citations)
  • Records of carbon and sulfur cycling during the Silurian Ireviken Event in Gotland, Sweden (18 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Ecology
  • Sedimentary rock

David A. Fike focuses on Geochemistry, Pyrite, Diagenesis, Sedimentary depositional environment and Sedimentary rock. Geochemistry connects with themes related to Biogeochemical cycle in his study. The various areas that David A. Fike examines in his Pyrite study include Organic matter, Carbon cycle and Anoxic waters.

As part of the same scientific family, David A. Fike usually focuses on Diagenesis, concentrating on Facies and intersecting with Recrystallization, Trace element, Isotopes of carbon and Chemostratigraphy. His biological study deals with issues like Carbonate rock, which deal with fields such as Micrite, Dissolved organic carbon and Isotopic shift. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Seawater, Glauconite and Bioturbation.
