Astrobiology, Mars Exploration Program, Geochemistry, Mineralogy and Sedimentary rock are her primary areas of study. Her Astrobiology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Planetary system and Exoplanet. Her work in the fields of Martian, Life on Mars and Exploration of Mars overlaps with other areas such as Environmental science.
Her Geochemistry research incorporates elements of Paleontology, Bacteria and Meteorite. Her Mineralogy research incorporates themes from Isotopes of carbon, Total organic carbon, Sample preparation and Biofilm. She combines subjects such as Oceanography, Earth science and Diagenesis with her study of Sedimentary rock.
Frances Westall focuses on Astrobiology, Mars Exploration Program, Geochemistry, Mineralogy and Martian. The various areas that Frances Westall examines in her Astrobiology study include Planet and Habitability. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Space exploration and Remote sensing.
Her Geochemistry study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Bacteria. Her research in Martian intersects with topics in Basalt and Meteorite. Her studies deal with areas such as Sedimentary rock and Microbial mat as well as Archean.
Frances Westall mostly deals with Astrobiology, Mars Exploration Program, Habitability, Extraterrestrial life and Planet. Frances Westall works mostly in the field of Astrobiology, limiting it down to topics relating to Low earth orbit and, in certain cases, Organic molecules, as a part of the same area of interest. Frances Westall does research in Mars Exploration Program, focusing on Martian specifically.
Her research investigates the connection between Martian and topics such as Meteorite that intersect with problems in BIOPAN. The study incorporates disciplines such as Natural, Impact crater and Planetary geology in addition to Habitability. Frances Westall has included themes like COSMIC cancer database, Orbit and Exoplanet in her Extraterrestrial life study.
Her primary areas of investigation include Astrobiology, Mars Exploration Program, Habitability, Sedimentary rock and Biosignature. Her Astrobiology study combines topics in areas such as International Space Station, Earth's orbit and Geocentric orbit. Her studies in Mars Exploration Program integrate themes in fields like Geologic record and Remote sensing.
Her Sedimentary rock study is concerned with the field of Geochemistry as a whole. Frances Westall focuses mostly in the field of Biosignature, narrowing it down to topics relating to Metallome and, in certain cases, Environmental chemistry. In her study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Abiogenesis, Anoxygenic photosynthesis is strongly linked to Early Earth.
