Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Astronomy
  • Solar System
  • Jupiter

His main research concerns Astrobiology, Titan, Planet, Astronomy and Astrophysics. His Astrobiology study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Dissipation. His Titan study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Atmospheric sciences, Orbiter, Radar observations, Radar imaging and Methane.

His Atmospheric sciences research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Crust, Atmospheric methane, Latitude and Water cycle. His study in the fields of Life on Titan under the domain of Methane overlaps with other disciplines such as Fluvial. His research investigates the connection between Planet and topics such as Stellar classification that intersect with issues in Infrared telescope and Luminosity.

His most cited work include:

  • A Nongray Theory of Extrasolar Giant Planets and Brown Dwarfs (1216 citations)
  • The James Webb Space Telescope (892 citations)
  • The abundances of constituents of Titan's atmosphere from the GCMS instrument on the Huygens probe (746 citations)

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

Jonathan I. Lunine focuses on Astrobiology, Titan, Astronomy, Planet and Astrophysics. His work on Solar System, Formation and evolution of the Solar System and Enceladus as part of general Astrobiology study is frequently linked to Environmental science, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His studies examine the connections between Solar System and genetics, as well as such issues in Uranus, with regards to Neptune.

His Titan study combines topics in areas such as Radar, Atmospheric sciences, Remote sensing and Methane. His research in Atmospheric sciences intersects with topics in Atmosphere and Convection. Planet is a component of his Exoplanet, Terrestrial planet, Jupiter, Planetary mass and Planetary migration studies.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrobiology (53.19%)
  • Titan (42.10%)
  • Astronomy (24.16%)

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

  • Astrobiology (53.19%)
  • Titan (42.10%)
  • Planet (24.32%)

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

Astrobiology, Titan, Planet, Astronomy and Jupiter are his primary areas of study. He performs integrative study on Astrobiology and Environmental science. His Titan research also works with subjects such as

  • Methane that intertwine with fields like Nitrogen,
  • Radar which connect with Altimeter.

In most of his Planet studies, his work intersects topics such as James Webb Space Telescope. His work on Gas giant and Stars as part of his general Astronomy study is frequently connected to Eccentricity, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His work focuses on many connections between Jupiter and other disciplines, such as Atmosphere, that overlap with his field of interest in Jovian, Atmosphere of Jupiter and Atmospheric sciences.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Cassini finds molecular hydrogen in the Enceladus plume: Evidence for hydrothermal processes. (188 citations)
  • The Juno Mission (100 citations)
  • JIRAM, the Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (65 citations)

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

  • Astronomy
  • Solar System
  • Jupiter

Jonathan I. Lunine spends much of his time researching Astrobiology, Titan, Planet, Solar System and Nebula. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ice giant and Saturn. His Titan study incorporates themes from Seafloor spreading, Bathymetry, Methane, Radar and Polar.

Many of his research projects under Methane are closely connected to Environmental science with Environmental science, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His Planet study is concerned with Astrophysics in general. His study in Solar System is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Earth science, Exoplanet and Planetary body.
