Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Astronomy
  • Meteorology
  • Atmosphere

His primary areas of study are Mars Exploration Program, Atmospheric sciences, Environmental science, Martian and Atmosphere of Mars. His Mars Exploration Program study is concerned with the field of Astrobiology as a whole. His Astrobiology study incorporates themes from Exoplanet, Planet and Habitability.

His studies in Atmospheric sciences integrate themes in fields like Atmosphere, Water vapor and Radiative transfer. His Martian research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Climatology, Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, Climate model and Ice cloud. His research on Atmosphere of Mars also deals with topics like

  • Atmospheric chemistry which is related to area like Middle latitudes,
  • Vortex which connect with Dust storm and Convection.

His most cited work include:

  • Global Mineralogical and Aqueous Mars History Derived from OMEGA/Mars Express Data (1081 citations)
  • Improved general circulation models of the Martian atmosphere from the surface to above 80 km (814 citations)
  • Warming Early Mars with Carbon Dioxide Clouds That Scatter Infrared Radiation (402 citations)

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

François Forget mostly deals with Mars Exploration Program, Atmospheric sciences, Environmental science, Martian and Atmosphere of Mars. His Mars Exploration Program research is within the category of Astrobiology. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Astrobiology, concentrating on Planet and frequently concerns with Solar System.

His study in the field of Atmospheric circulation is also linked to topics like Water cycle. His work on Martian surface as part of his general Martian study is frequently connected to Solar wind, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Occultation, Mesoscale meteorology, Mesosphere, Longitude and Remote sensing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mars Exploration Program (67.89%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (45.00%)
  • Environmental science (41.05%)

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

  • Mars Exploration Program (67.89%)
  • Environmental science (41.05%)
  • Atmospheric sciences (45.00%)

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

Mars Exploration Program, Environmental science, Atmospheric sciences, Martian and Atmosphere are his primary areas of study. François Forget works on Mars Exploration Program which deals in particular with Atmosphere of Mars. The study incorporates disciplines such as Atmospheric circulation, Remote sensing, Ice cloud and Mesosphere in addition to Atmosphere of Mars.

His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Impact crater, GCM transcription factors, Atmospheric radiative transfer codes, Water vapor and Thermal Emission Spectrometer. When carried out as part of a general Martian research project, his work on Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter is frequently linked to work in Water cycle, Field and Magnetization, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Atmosphere study combines topics in areas such as Pluto, Radiative transfer, Optical depth and Surface pressure.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The atmosphere of Mars as observed by InSight (57 citations)
  • Martian dust storm impact on atmospheric H2O and D/H observed by ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter. (52 citations)
  • No detection of methane on Mars from early ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter observations. (41 citations)

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

  • Astronomy
  • Meteorology
  • Atmosphere

His scientific interests lie mostly in Mars Exploration Program, Atmospheric sciences, Atmosphere, Environmental science and Martian. His work carried out in the field of Mars Exploration Program brings together such families of science as Aeolian processes, Impact crater, Orbiter, Path length and Far infrared. His studies deal with areas such as Radiative transfer and CRISM as well as Atmospheric sciences.

His research in Atmosphere intersects with topics in Pluto, Thermal Emission Spectrometer, Optical depth and Geophysics. His Martian study is related to the wider topic of Astrobiology. His Atmosphere of Mars research includes themes of Meridional flow and Mesosphere.
