Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt
  • Volcano

Kenneth E. Herkenhoff mainly focuses on Mars Exploration Program, Impact crater, Meridiani Planum, Martian surface and Geochemistry. His Mars Exploration Program research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Aeolian processes and Regolith. His study in Impact crater is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Basalt, Geomorphology and Composition of Mars.

His work carried out in the field of Meridiani Planum brings together such families of science as Outcrop and Mineralogy. His study explores the link between Martian surface and topics such as Remote sensing that cross with problems in Pixel, Field of view, Exploration of Mars and Spectrometer. His study in the field of Sedimentary rock also crosses realms of Siliciclastic.

His most cited work include:

  • Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) (1011 citations)
  • The Opportunity Rover's Athena science investigation at Meridiani Planum, Mars. (440 citations)
  • Provenance and diagenesis of the evaporite-bearing Burns formation, Meridiani Planum, Mars (425 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Mars Exploration Program, Impact crater, Geochemistry, Mineralogy and Martian. His work deals with themes such as Aeolian processes and Geomorphology, which intersect with Mars Exploration Program. The study incorporates disciplines such as Paleontology, Basalt, Water on Mars and Regolith in addition to Impact crater.

In the subject of general Geochemistry, his work in Sedimentary rock and Breccia is often linked to Siliciclastic, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His work on Fracture and Olivine as part of general Mineralogy research is frequently linked to Materials science and Particle, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Kenneth E. Herkenhoff has included themes like Saltation and Remote sensing in his Martian study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mars Exploration Program (71.32%)
  • Impact crater (35.66%)
  • Geochemistry (22.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Mars Exploration Program (71.32%)
  • Impact crater (35.66%)
  • Geochemistry (22.48%)

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

Kenneth E. Herkenhoff mainly investigates Mars Exploration Program, Impact crater, Geochemistry, Stratigraphy and Orbiter. His Mars Exploration Program research includes themes of Outcrop, Mineralogy and Geophysics. His research in Geophysics intersects with topics in Martian and Bedform.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Basalt and Vein. While the research belongs to areas of Geochemistry, Kenneth E. Herkenhoff spends his time largely on the problem of Noachian, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Breccia and Earth science. His work in Clastic rock tackles topics such as Lithology which are related to areas like Meridiani Planum.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Large wind ripples on Mars: A record of atmospheric evolution (97 citations)
  • The Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) Mast cameras and Descent imager: Investigation and instrument descriptions. (67 citations)
  • The Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity rover Mastcam instruments: Preflight and in‐flight calibration, validation, and data archiving (67 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt
  • Volcano

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Mars Exploration Program, Geophysics, Orbiter, Earth science and Stratigraphy. As part of his studies on Mars Exploration Program, Kenneth E. Herkenhoff frequently links adjacent subjects like Geochemistry. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Impact crater, Mineralogy and Noachian.

His Noachian research incorporates themes from Fracture, Fracture zone and Sulfate minerals. His Geophysics research integrates issues from Wavelength and Bedform. He has researched Earth science in several fields, including Outcrop, Geologic map and Water on Mars.
