Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Astronomy
  • Optics
  • Sedimentary rock

His primary areas of study are Mars Exploration Program, Mineralogy, Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy, Rocknest and Martian. His Mars Exploration Program research is under the purview of Astrobiology. The concepts of his Mineralogy study are interwoven with issues in Atmosphere, Atmosphere of Mars, Bassanite and Trachyte.

Roger C. Wiens has researched Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy in several fields, including Elemental analysis, Partial least squares regression, Calibration curve and Atmospheric pressure. His Rocknest research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Bay, Earth science, Sample Analysis at Mars, Habitability and Bradbury Landing. His research integrates issues of Fluvial and Diagenesis in his study of Sedimentary rock.

His most cited work include:

  • A habitable fluvio-lacustrine environment at Yellowknife Bay, Gale crater, Mars. (499 citations)
  • Mars Science Laboratory Mission and Science Investigation (436 citations)
  • Deposition, exhumation, and paleoclimate of an ancient lake deposit, Gale crater, Mars. (313 citations)

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

Roger C. Wiens spends much of his time researching Mars Exploration Program, Astrobiology, Geochemistry, Gale crater and Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy. Roger C. Wiens combines subjects such as Sedimentary rock, Spectroscopy, Mineralogy and Remote sensing with his study of Mars Exploration Program. His work deals with themes such as Sedimentary depositional environment and Bedrock, which intersect with Sedimentary rock.

His Astrobiology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Planet and Solar wind. In general Solar wind study, his work on Coronal hole often relates to the realm of Fractionation, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Spectrometer, Spectral line, Emission spectrum and Partial least squares regression, Analytical chemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mars Exploration Program (56.32%)
  • Astrobiology (25.06%)
  • Geochemistry (23.06%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Mars Exploration Program (56.32%)
  • Geochemistry (23.06%)
  • Sedimentary rock (11.97%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Mars Exploration Program, Geochemistry, Sedimentary rock, Gale crater and Diagenesis. His research in Mars Exploration Program is mostly concerned with Martian. His Geochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Impact crater and Meteorite.

In his work, Mineral is strongly intertwined with Mineralogy, which is a subfield of Sedimentary rock. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Gale crater, focusing on Curiosity rover and, on occasion, Ridge. His Diagenesis research includes elements of Aeolian processes, Basalt, Hematite and Ridge.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • An interval of high salinity in ancient Gale crater lake on Mars (33 citations)
  • Mineral-Filled Fractures as Indicators of Multigenerational Fluid Flow in the Pahrump Hills Member of the Murray Formation, Gale Crater, Mars (26 citations)
  • Chemical alteration of fine-grained sedimentary rocks at Gale crater (24 citations)

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

  • Astronomy
  • Optics
  • Sedimentary rock

Roger C. Wiens focuses on Mars Exploration Program, Geochemistry, Sedimentary rock, Diagenesis and Bedrock. The Mars Exploration Program study combines topics in areas such as Spectroscopy, Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy, Laser and Mineralogy. Roger C. Wiens studied Geochemistry and Gale crater that intersect with Fluid dynamics, Lithification and Concretion.

His studies deal with areas such as Sedimentary depositional environment and Igneous rock as well as Sedimentary rock. Roger C. Wiens has included themes like Aeolian processes, Basalt, Ridge, Hematite and Sediment compaction in his Diagenesis study. As a part of the same scientific family, Roger C. Wiens mostly works in the field of Martian, focusing on Exploration of Mars and, on occasion, Atmosphere of Mars and Mars rover.
