Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oxygen
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Astronomy

James F. Kasting spends much of his time researching Astrobiology, Astronomy, Atmosphere, Planet and Terrestrial planet. His studies deal with areas such as Greenhouse effect and Bioclimatology as well as Astrobiology. His study in Astronomy focuses on Circumstellar habitable zone and Planetary habitability.

His Atmosphere research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Climate model, Atmospheric sciences, Proterozoic, Greenhouse gas and Carbon dioxide. His research investigates the link between Planet and topics such as Stars that cross with problems in Cosmic ray. James F. Kasting interconnects Planetary mass and Exoplanet in the investigation of issues within Terrestrial planet.

His most cited work include:

  • Habitable zones around main sequence stars (1936 citations)
  • A negative feedback mechanism for the long‐term stabilization of Earth's surface temperature (1420 citations)
  • Habitable Zones Around Main-Sequence Stars: New Estimates (1137 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Astrobiology, Atmosphere, Planet, Exoplanet and Astronomy. He combines subjects such as Habitability, Habitability of orange dwarf systems and Planetary habitability with his study of Astrobiology. His work deals with themes such as Earth science, Atmospheric sciences, Early Earth, Methane and Carbon dioxide, which intersect with Atmosphere.

His Atmospheric sciences research integrates issues from Climate model, Atmosphere of Earth, Greenhouse effect, Water vapor and Greenhouse gas. His Planet research includes themes of Stars and Metallicity. His Exoplanet study often links to related topics such as Planetary system.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrobiology (52.87%)
  • Atmosphere (36.49%)
  • Planet (30.46%)

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

  • Astrobiology (52.87%)
  • Circumstellar habitable zone (19.54%)
  • Planet (30.46%)

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

Astrobiology, Circumstellar habitable zone, Planet, Atmosphere and Exoplanet are his primary areas of study. His Astrobiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Oxygen and Earth science. His Circumstellar habitable zone study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Edge and Main sequence.

His Planet research focuses on Stars and how it connects with Abiotic component, Primary and Photodissociation. James F. Kasting has researched Atmosphere in several fields, including Methane, Stratosphere, Early Earth and Archean. His biological study focuses on Planetary habitability.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Habitable Zones Around Main-Sequence Stars: New Estimates (1137 citations)
  • Habitable zones around main-sequence stars: Dependence on planetary mass (430 citations)
  • THE INNER EDGE OF THE HABITABLE ZONE FOR SYNCHRONOUSLY ROTATING PLANETS AROUND LOW-MASS STARS USING GENERAL CIRCULATION MODELS (192 citations)

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

  • Oxygen
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Astronomy

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Planet, Astrobiology, Circumstellar habitable zone, Atmosphere and Terrestrial planet. His work is dedicated to discovering how Planet, Stars are connected with Abiotic component and Photodissociation and other disciplines. His Astrobiology research focuses on Mars Exploration Program in particular.

His work carried out in the field of Mars Exploration Program brings together such families of science as Greenhouse effect and Crust. His research on Astronomy and Exoplanet is centered around Circumstellar habitable zone. His Atmosphere research incorporates elements of Mass-independent fractionation, Climate model, Early Earth and Anoxic waters.
