Nathan T. Bridges spends much of his time researching Mars Exploration Program, Astrobiology, Impact crater, Rocknest and Mineralogy. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Geochemistry, Orbiter and Aeolian processes. His Impact crater research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ventifact, Noachian and Geomorphology.

Nathan T. Bridges has included themes like Telescope, Spectrometer, Sample Analysis at Mars, Optical fiber and Remote sensing in his Rocknest study. His Mineralogy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Atmosphere and Impactite, Clastic rock. His work carried out in the field of Water on Mars brings together such families of science as Earth science and Exploration of Mars.

His most cited work include:

  • Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) (1011 citations)
  • The ChemCam Instrument Suite on the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) Rover: Body Unit and Combined System Tests (296 citations)
  • The ChemCam Instrument Suite on the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) Rover: Science Objectives and Mast Unit Description (262 citations)

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

Nathan T. Bridges focuses on Mars Exploration Program, Aeolian processes, Astrobiology, Martian and Geomorphology. His studies examine the connections between Mars Exploration Program and genetics, as well as such issues in Orbiter, with regards to Water on Mars. His Aeolian processes research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Sedimentary rock, Wind tunnel and Bedform.

His research in the fields of Exploration of Mars overlaps with other disciplines such as Environmental science. His studies deal with areas such as Sediment transport, Mineralogy and Geophysics as well as Martian. His Ventifact research includes themes of Wind direction and Weathering.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mars Exploration Program (70.33%)
  • Aeolian processes (29.30%)
  • Astrobiology (23.81%)

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

  • Mars Exploration Program (70.33%)
  • Aeolian processes (29.30%)
  • Astrobiology (23.81%)

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

Nathan T. Bridges mainly focuses on Mars Exploration Program, Aeolian processes, Astrobiology, Martian and Gale crater. Nathan T. Bridges has researched Mars Exploration Program in several fields, including Earth science, Sedimentary rock, Mineralogy, Bedform and Geomorphology. His Aeolian processes research includes elements of Wind speed, Impact crater, Grain size and Olivine.

Nathan T. Bridges interconnects Orbiter and Planet in the investigation of issues within Astrobiology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Albedo, Texture, Sediment transport and Weathering in addition to Martian. The Gale crater study combines topics in areas such as Geochemistry, Remote sensing, Archaeology and Unconformity.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Volatile and organic compositions of sedimentary rocks in Yellowknife Bay, Gale crater, Mars. (250 citations)
  • Large wind ripples on Mars: A record of atmospheric evolution (97 citations)
  • ChemCam activities and discoveries during the nominal mission of the Mars Science Laboratory in Gale crater, Mars (87 citations)

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

  • Astronomy
  • Optics
  • Thermodynamics

Nathan T. Bridges mostly deals with Mars Exploration Program, Aeolian processes, Martian, Geomorphology and Mineralogy. Nathan T. Bridges studies Mars Exploration Program, focusing on Gale crater in particular. His work deals with themes such as Astrobiology, Impact crater, Olivine, High latitude and Grain size, which intersect with Aeolian processes.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Impact crater, Hesperian and Meteorite is strongly linked to Geochemistry. He combines subjects such as Sedimentary rock, Earth science and Bedform with his study of Martian. His Mineralogy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Planetary science, Rocknest, Manganese and Deposition.
