2023 - Research.com Earth Science in United States Leader Award
2004 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
Philip R. Christensen mainly focuses on Mars Exploration Program, Thermal Emission Spectrometer, Mineralogy, Thermal Emission Imaging System and Geochemistry. His study in Mars Exploration Program is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Impact crater, Atmospheric sciences and Remote sensing. His Thermal Emission Spectrometer research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Atmosphere, Basalt, Dust storm and Northern Hemisphere.
His studies deal with areas such as Meridiani Planum, Emissivity, Plagioclase, Weathering and Composition of Mars as well as Mineralogy. Philip R. Christensen has researched Thermal Emission Imaging System in several fields, including Bedrock, Thermal, Silicate and Albedo. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Geomorphology and Hesperian.
His primary scientific interests are in Mars Exploration Program, Thermal Emission Spectrometer, Mineralogy, Astrobiology and Impact crater. His Mars Exploration Program research includes elements of Geochemistry, Basalt and Atmospheric sciences. His research on Thermal Emission Spectrometer also deals with topics like
As a member of one scientific family, Philip R. Christensen mostly works in the field of Mineralogy, focusing on Plagioclase and, on occasion, Feldspar. His Impact crater research incorporates elements of Volcano, Orbiter and Aeolian processes, Geomorphology. The Thermal Emission Imaging System study combines topics in areas such as Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter and Infrared.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Mars Exploration Program, Astrobiology, Asteroid, Osiris and Earth science. The concepts of his Mars Exploration Program study are interwoven with issues in Glacial period, Geomorphology, Basalt and Mineralogy. His research integrates issues of Volcano, Paleontology and Impact crater in his study of Geomorphology.
Philip R. Christensen has included themes like Thermal conductivity, Emissivity, Martian surface and Lag deposit in his Mineralogy study. His study on Regolith is often connected to Clipper as part of broader study in Astrobiology. His studies deal with areas such as Thermal Emission Spectrometer and Thermal Emission Imaging System as well as Thermal infrared.
Philip R. Christensen mostly deals with Astrobiology, Mars Exploration Program, Asteroid, Basalt and Earth science. Philip R. Christensen has researched Astrobiology in several fields, including Exoplanet, Planet and Habitability. His Mars Exploration Program research incorporates themes from Geochemistry, Impact crater and Mineralogy.
His studies in Geochemistry integrate themes in fields like Daytime, Aeolian processes, Thermal Emission Imaging System and Facies. His research in Mineralogy intersects with topics in Lag, Brine and Lag deposit. His Basalt research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mars odyssey and Weathering.
