Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Basalt
  • Astronomy
  • Optics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Mars Exploration Program, Mineralogy, Spectrometer, Rocknest and Martian. His research in Mars Exploration Program intersects with topics in Geochemistry, Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy and Remote sensing. His Mineralogy research incorporates elements of Thermal and Latitude.

The Spectrometer study combines topics in areas such as Thorium and Neutron. His research investigates the connection between Rocknest and topics such as Sample Analysis at Mars that intersect with issues in Total organic carbon, Aeolian processes, Exploration of Mars and Meridiani Planum. His work deals with themes such as Volcano and Sedimentary rock, which intersect with Martian.

His most cited work include:

  • Distribution of Hydrogen in the Near-Surface of Mars: Evidence for Subsurface Ice Deposits (751 citations)
  • Global distribution of neutrons from Mars: Results from Mars Odyssey (430 citations)
  • The ChemCam Instrument Suite on the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) Rover: Body Unit and Combined System Tests (296 citations)

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

Olivier Gasnault mostly deals with Mars Exploration Program, Astrobiology, Gale crater, Geochemistry and Mineralogy. Many of his research projects under Mars Exploration Program are closely connected to Hydrogen with Hydrogen, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His study in the field of Mars odyssey and Meteorite is also linked to topics like Curiosity.

He has researched Mineralogy in several fields, including Thorium and Neutron, Neutron temperature. His work in Remote sensing tackles topics such as Spectrometer which are related to areas like Astronomy, Detector, Astrophysics and Regolith. His Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Spectral line, Emission spectrum and Analytical chemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mars Exploration Program (53.15%)
  • Astrobiology (29.07%)
  • Gale crater (23.21%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Mars Exploration Program (53.15%)
  • Gale crater (23.21%)
  • Geochemistry (22.99%)

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

Olivier Gasnault focuses on Mars Exploration Program, Gale crater, Geochemistry, Sedimentary rock and Astrobiology. His work on Martian as part of general Mars Exploration Program research is frequently linked to Environmental science, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. Olivier Gasnault combines subjects such as Sedimentary structures, Curiosity rover and Chondrite, Meteorite with his study of Gale crater.

His Geochemistry research includes themes of Impact crater, Hematite and Fluvial. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sedimentary depositional environment and Weathering. His Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Characterization and Analytical chemistry.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Chemical alteration of fine-grained sedimentary rocks at Gale crater (24 citations)
  • Listening to laser sparks: a link between Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy, acoustic measurements and crater morphology (20 citations)
  • Martian Eolian Dust Probed by ChemCam (20 citations)

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

  • Astronomy
  • Optics
  • Basalt

Mars Exploration Program, Geochemistry, Sedimentary rock, Diagenesis and Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy are his primary areas of study. His study on Martian is often connected to Context as part of broader study in Mars Exploration Program. Olivier Gasnault interconnects Sedimentary depositional environment, Grain size and Exploration of Mars in the investigation of issues within Martian.

The concepts of his Geochemistry study are interwoven with issues in Gale crater and Impact crater. His Gale crater study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Chemical index and Clay minerals. His studies deal with areas such as Aeolian processes, Plateau, Basalt and Ridge as well as Diagenesis.
