2012 - Geochemistry Fellow Honor, Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry
2010 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
Kevin D. McKeegan mainly investigates Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Meteorite, Isotopes of oxygen and Chondrite. His study in Mineralogy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Melilite, Precambrian and Sulfur. The Archean research he does as part of his general Geochemistry study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Akilia, Rhyolite and Lava, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.
His Meteorite research is classified as research in Astrobiology. Many of his research projects under Astrobiology are closely connected to Billion years with Billion years, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. Kevin D. McKeegan has included themes like Calcite, Annual cycle, Monsoon, Oceanography and Stalagmite in his Isotopes of oxygen study.
Kevin D. McKeegan spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Chondrite, Astrobiology, Mineralogy and Meteorite. In his research on the topic of Geochemistry, Sulfide is strongly related with Sulfur. His Chondrite study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Isotopes of oxygen and Analytical chemistry.
His Analytical chemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Melilite and Allende meteorite. A large part of his Mineralogy studies is devoted to Pyroxene. His studies examine the connections between Meteorite and genetics, as well as such issues in Martian, with regards to Crust.
His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Meteorite, Astrobiology, Zircon and Martian. In general Meteorite study, his work on Chondrite often relates to the realm of Bearing, thereby connecting several areas of interest. He interconnects Formation and evolution of the Solar System, Partial melting, Interplanetary dust cloud, Analytical chemistry and Asteroid in the investigation of issues within Chondrite.
His research integrates issues of Giant planet, Terrestrial planet and Isotopes of chlorine in his study of Astrobiology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Lunar magma ocean, Proxy and Geochronology. His Mineralogy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Trace element, Sulfate and Allende meteorite.
Kevin D. McKeegan mostly deals with Meteorite, Analytical chemistry, Geochemistry, Mineralogy and Martian. His Meteorite study is concerned with Astrobiology in general. In Astrobiology, Kevin D. McKeegan works on issues like Terrestrial planet, which are connected to Early Earth.
His work deals with themes such as Melilite, Ion implantation and Radiogenic nuclide, which intersect with Analytical chemistry. The various areas that Kevin D. McKeegan examines in his Mineralogy study include Sulfate and Sulfur. His Martian study incorporates themes from Isotopes of chlorine, Mantle and Crust.
