Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Hydrogen

Mars Exploration Program, Sample Analysis at Mars, Astrobiology, Martian and Rocknest are his primary areas of study. His Mars Exploration Program research includes elements of Soil water and Impact crater. His research integrates issues of Total organic carbon, Carbonate, Mineralogy, Diagenesis and Pyrolysis in his study of Sample Analysis at Mars.

His Astrobiology study combines topics in areas such as Carbon and Spectrometer. His work deals with themes such as Atmosphere, Aeolian processes, Life on Mars and Quadrupole mass analyzer, which intersect with Rocknest. In his work, Martian surface is strongly intertwined with Methane, which is a subfield of Interplanetary dust cloud.

His most cited work include:

  • Mars-like soils in the Atacama Desert, Chile, and the dry limit of microbial life (409 citations)
  • Volatile, Isotope, and Organic Analysis of Martian Fines with the Mars Curiosity Rover (293 citations)
  • The Sample Analysis at Mars Investigation and Instrument Suite (284 citations)

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

Rafael Navarro-González spends much of his time researching Astrobiology, Mars Exploration Program, Sample Analysis at Mars, Environmental chemistry and Titan. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Volcano and Atmosphere. His study in Mars Exploration Program is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Organic matter, Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry and Meteorite.

His research in Sample Analysis at Mars intersects with topics in Rocknest, Pyrolysis, Chlorobenzene and Mass spectrometry. Rafael Navarro-González combines subjects such as Perchlorate, Soil water and Carbon dioxide with his study of Environmental chemistry. While the research belongs to areas of Titan, he spends his time largely on the problem of Corona discharge, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Methane.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrobiology (37.14%)
  • Mars Exploration Program (33.88%)
  • Sample Analysis at Mars (22.04%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Mars Exploration Program (33.88%)
  • Sample Analysis at Mars (22.04%)
  • Astrobiology (37.14%)

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

His main research concerns Mars Exploration Program, Sample Analysis at Mars, Astrobiology, Organic matter and Gale crater. His studies in Mars Exploration Program integrate themes in fields like Chlorobenzene, Geochemistry, Chlorate, Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry and Pyrolysis. The study incorporates disciplines such as Tetramethylammonium hydroxide, Carbonate and Environmental chemistry, Total organic carbon in addition to Sample Analysis at Mars.

His work on Martian, Meteorite, Martian surface and Early Earth as part of general Astrobiology study is frequently connected to Curiosity, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His study looks at the relationship between Organic matter and topics such as Calcium perchlorate, which overlap with Regolith. The Gale crater study combines topics in areas such as Curiosity rover and Ridge.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Organic matter preserved in 3-billion-year-old mudstones at Gale crater, Mars. (152 citations)
  • Background levels of methane in Mars' atmosphere show strong seasonal variations (102 citations)
  • Evolved gas analyses of sedimentary rocks and eolian sediment in Gale Crater, Mars: Results of the Curiosity rover's sample analysis at Mars instrument from Yellowknife Bay to the Namib Dune (84 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen
  • Hydrogen

His primary areas of investigation include Mars Exploration Program, Sample Analysis at Mars, Astrobiology, Martian and Meteorite. His Mars Exploration Program study frequently involves adjacent topics like Diagenesis. His Sample Analysis at Mars research incorporates themes from Organic matter, Atmospheric composition, Total organic carbon, Carbonate and Chlorobenzene.

Rafael Navarro-González integrates Astrobiology with Evolved gas analysis in his research. Rafael Navarro-González interconnects Carbon, Pyrolysis and Volcanic Gases in the investigation of issues within Martian. He usually deals with Carbon and limits it to topics linked to Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry and Spectrometer.
