Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Basalt
  • Mineral
  • Astronomy

His primary scientific interests are in Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Astrobiology, Meteorite and Basalt. Harry Y. McSween is interested in Olivine, which is a field of Mineralogy. His studies in Geochemistry integrate themes in fields like EETA 79001, Augite and Meridiani Planum.

Astrobiology is closely attributed to Mantle in his work. The concepts of his Meteorite study are interwoven with issues in Martian, Planetary science and Chemical composition. The various areas that he examines in his Basalt study include Impact crater, Mars Exploration Program, Crust, Volcanic rock and Martian surface.

His most cited work include:

  • In situ evidence for an ancient aqueous environment at Meridiani Planum, Mars. (717 citations)
  • The Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) for the Mars 2001 Odyssey mission (690 citations)
  • Overview of the Spirit Mars Exploration Rover Mission to Gusev Crater: Landing site to Backstay Rock in the Columbia Hills (568 citations)

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

Harry Y. McSween mainly focuses on Astrobiology, Geochemistry, Meteorite, Mineralogy and Mars Exploration Program. His study in Astronomy extends to Astrobiology with its themes. His study in Basalt, Olivine, Pyroxene, Igneous rock and Crust falls within the category of Geochemistry.

His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Martian and Meteorite. His work carried out in the field of Mineralogy brings together such families of science as Mineral, Plagioclase and Meridiani Planum. His Mars Exploration Program research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Impact crater and Earth science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrobiology (36.59%)
  • Geochemistry (33.39%)
  • Meteorite (30.02%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Astrobiology (36.59%)
  • Geochemistry (33.39%)
  • Meteorite (30.02%)

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

Harry Y. McSween mainly investigates Astrobiology, Geochemistry, Meteorite, Mars Exploration Program and Martian. In most of his Astrobiology studies, his work intersects topics such as Astronomy. Harry Y. McSween usually deals with Geochemistry and limits it to topics linked to Eucrite and Diogenite.

Harry Y. McSween has researched Meteorite in several fields, including Mineral and Igneous rock. His Mars Exploration Program research includes themes of Paleomagnetism and Planetary Evolution. His work on Martian surface as part of general Martian research is frequently linked to Sample quality, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Bright carbonate deposits as evidence of aqueous alteration on (1) Ceres (174 citations)
  • Dawn Arrives at Ceres: Exploration of a Small Volatile-Rich World (135 citations)
  • Distribution of phyllosilicates on the surface of Ceres. (122 citations)

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

  • Basalt
  • Astronomy
  • Mineral

Harry Y. McSween mostly deals with Geochemistry, Astrobiology, Mineralogy, Meteorite and Asteroid. His Geochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Howardite and Eucrite. His work on Regolith and Chondrite as part of his general Astrobiology study is frequently connected to Shell, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His Mineralogy study deals with Impact crater intersecting with Spectral slope, Dome and Lithosphere. His Meteorite research includes elements of Mineral and Igneous rock. His work deals with themes such as Surface, Spatial distribution, Carbonate and Relative species abundance, which intersect with Asteroid.
