Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Meteorite
  • Mineral
  • Chondrite

Chondrite, Meteorite, Mineralogy, Chondrule and Geochemistry are his primary areas of study. John T. Wasson interconnects Chemical composition, Formation and evolution of the Solar System, Lithophile and Analytical chemistry in the investigation of issues within Chondrite. The study incorporates disciplines such as Silicate and Nickel in addition to Meteorite.

His Mineralogy research incorporates elements of Fractional crystallization, Parent body, Troilite and Isotopes of oxygen. His Chondrule research includes themes of Carbonaceous chondrite, Magnetite, Volatiles, Enstatite and Ordinary chondrite. The various areas that John T. Wasson examines in his Geochemistry study include Carbonate, Allende meteorite and Meteoroid.

His most cited work include:

  • Geochim. cosmochim. acta: Rubin A.E. and Wasson J. T. (1987) Chondrules, matrix and coarsegrained chondrule rims in the Allende meteorite: Origin, interrelationships and possible precursor components 51, 1923–1937 (1338 citations)
  • Compositions of chondrites (808 citations)
  • Progressive aqueous alteration of CM carbonaceous chondrites (333 citations)

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

John T. Wasson mainly focuses on Meteorite, Chondrite, Mineralogy, Geochemistry and Chondrule. John T. Wasson has researched Meteorite in several fields, including Silicate and Chemical composition. His Chondrite study incorporates themes from Formation and evolution of the Solar System, Olivine and Analytical chemistry.

His Mineralogy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Fractional crystallization, Crystallization, Troilite and Kamacite. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Carbonaceous chondrite and Impact crater. His work deals with themes such as Phenocryst, Magnetite, Isotopes of oxygen and Lithophile, which intersect with Chondrule.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Meteorite (46.80%)
  • Chondrite (46.22%)
  • Mineralogy (35.47%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2002-2021)?

  • Chondrite (46.22%)
  • Chondrule (26.16%)
  • Mineralogy (35.47%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Chondrite, Chondrule, Mineralogy, Geochemistry and Meteorite. His Chondrite research integrates issues from Formation and evolution of the Solar System, Astrophysics and Analytical chemistry. John T. Wasson works mostly in the field of Chondrule, limiting it down to topics relating to Olivine and, in certain cases, Isotopes of oxygen and Magnetite, as a part of the same area of interest.

His Mineralogy study combines topics in areas such as Weathering, Carbonate, Igneous rock and Clastic rock. His research investigates the connection with Geochemistry and areas like Phenocryst which intersect with concerns in Mafic. John T. Wasson has included themes like Fractional crystallization and Asteroid in his Meteorite study.

Between 2002 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Progressive aqueous alteration of CM carbonaceous chondrites (333 citations)
  • Initial 26Al/27Al in carbonaceous-chondrite chondrules: too little 26Al to melt asteroids (100 citations)
  • Formation of metal and silicate globules in Gujba: a new Bencubbin-like meteorite fall (89 citations)

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

  • Mineral
  • Geochemistry
  • Meteorite

John T. Wasson mostly deals with Chondrite, Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Chondrule and Meteorite. He works in the field of Chondrite, namely Enstatite. The concepts of his Mineralogy study are interwoven with issues in Murchison meteorite, Carbonate, Aqueous solution and Analytical chemistry.

His Geochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Impact crater, Parent body and Phenocryst. His study in Chondrule is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Formation and evolution of the Solar System, Olivine, Carbonaceous chondrite, Astrophysics and Nebula. His work in Meteorite addresses subjects such as Fractional crystallization, which are connected to disciplines such as Liquidus, Schreibersite and Nonmetal.
