2020 - Member of the National Academy of Sciences
2007 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
2007 - James B. Macelwane Medal, American Geophysical Union (AGU)
His main research concerns Geophysics, Astrobiology, Crust, Mantle and Mars Exploration Program. His Geophysics research incorporates themes from Thermal, Convection, Tidal heating, Enceladus and Lithosphere. His study in Convection is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Dynamo theory, Inner core and Heat flux.
His study in Solar System, Pluto and Chondrite is done as part of Astrobiology. His research in Crust intersects with topics in Porosity, Tectonics, Mantle convection and Basalt. His studies in Mantle integrate themes in fields like Meteorite, Primitive mantle, Silicate, Dynamo and Terrestrial planet.
Francis Nimmo focuses on Geophysics, Astrobiology, Pluto, Impact crater and Enceladus. His Geophysics study combines topics in areas such as Convection, Tidal heating and Heat flux. He has researched Astrobiology in several fields, including Planet, Jupiter and Shell.
His research integrates issues of Structural basin and Tectonics in his study of Impact crater. His Enceladus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Plume and Saturn. His research integrates issues of Martian, Mars Exploration Program and Petrology in his study of Crust.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Astrobiology, Geophysics, Jupiter, Planet and Mars Exploration Program. His research in Astrobiology is mostly concerned with Pluto. His Geophysics study incorporates themes from Present day, Impact crater, Enceladus and Habitability.
He works mostly in the field of Jupiter, limiting it down to topics relating to Tidal heating and, in certain cases, Fluid dynamics, Jovian, Petrology and Core. In Planet, he works on issues like Atmosphere, which are connected to Moment magnitude scale. In his work, Microseism is strongly intertwined with Seismometer, which is a subfield of Mars Exploration Program.
Francis Nimmo mostly deals with Mars Exploration Program, Seismometer, Seismology, Planet and Astrobiology. His Mars Exploration Program research integrates issues from Mechanics and Thermal. The concepts of his Seismology study are interwoven with issues in Attenuation, Broadband and Crust.
His studies deal with areas such as Seismic noise, Elysium, Receiver function, Mantle and Induced seismicity as well as Crust. His research in Planet intersects with topics in Intraplate earthquake, Atmosphere, Impact crater and Geophysics. His Astrobiology research includes elements of Stage, Compression, Gravitational energy, Terrestrial planet and Extensional tectonics.
