  • The Sloan Digital Sky Survey: Technical Summary (8256 citations)
  • The Seventh Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (4732 citations)

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

Donald G. York mainly investigates Astrophysics, Astronomy, Galaxy, Quasar and Redshift. His Astrophysics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Spectral line and Emission spectrum. Galaxy is often connected to Supernova in his work.

His studies deal with areas such as Lens, Equivalent width, Active galactic nucleus and Gravitational lens as well as Quasar. His studies in Redshift integrate themes in fields like Cosmology, Extinction and Baryon. Donald G. York combines subjects such as Magnitude, Stellar classification and Photometry with his study of Sky.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (91.21%)
  • Astronomy (50.50%)
  • Galaxy (42.71%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (91.21%)
  • Quasar (41.83%)
  • Galaxy (42.71%)

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

Donald G. York focuses on Astrophysics, Quasar, Galaxy, Astronomy and Redshift. His study in Astrophysics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Spectral line and Absorption. His Spectral line study incorporates themes from Wavelength, Line, Radius, Extinction and Absorption spectroscopy.

The Quasar study combines topics in areas such as Sky, Milky Way, Silicate, Baryon acoustic oscillations and Line-of-sight. Donald G. York interconnects Supernova and Emission spectrum in the investigation of issues within Galaxy. His Redshift research incorporates themes from Ionization and Blazar.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The eleventh and twelfth data releases of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: final data from SDSS-III (1815 citations)
  • The Tenth Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: First Spectroscopic Data from the SDSS-III Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (1021 citations)
  • The tenth data release of the Sloan digital sky survey: First spectroscopic data from the SDSS-iii apache point observatory galactic evolution experiment (990 citations)

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

  • Astronomy
  • Galaxy
  • Milky Way

Donald G. York spends much of his time researching Astrophysics, Quasar, Galaxy, Redshift and Astronomy. The various areas that Donald G. York examines in his Astrophysics study include Spectral line, Ionization and Cosmic microwave background. His Quasar research integrates issues from Intergalactic travel, Line-of-sight, Sky and Baryon acoustic oscillations.

His study in the field of Galaxy formation and evolution is also linked to topics like Absorption. While the research belongs to areas of Redshift, he spends his time largely on the problem of Emission spectrum, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Cosmic Origins Spectrograph and Spectral resolution. He has included themes like Connection and Inflow in his Astronomy study.
