Roger E. Summons mainly focuses on Hopanoids, Paleontology, Geochemistry, Source rock and Proterozoic. Roger E. Summons has researched Hopanoids in several fields, including Methylococcus capsulatus, Isotopes of carbon, Cyanobacteria, Pristane and Archean. His work carried out in the field of Geochemistry brings together such families of science as Kerogen, Organic matter and Biomarker.
The various areas that he examines in his Proterozoic study include Paleoatmosphere, Precambrian and Paleozoic. Roger E. Summons combines subjects such as Algae, Ecology, Anoxic waters, Geologic record and Early Earth with his study of Precambrian. His Sedimentary rock research includes elements of Rocknest and Marine ecosystem.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Paleontology, Geochemistry, Environmental chemistry, Biochemistry and Hopanoids. As part of his studies on Paleontology, Roger E. Summons frequently links adjacent subjects like Carbonate. His Geochemistry research incorporates elements of Kerogen, Source rock and Proterozoic.
His studies deal with areas such as Organic matter, Archaea, Hydrocarbon and Methane as well as Environmental chemistry. His study in Organic matter is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Total organic carbon, Sample Analysis at Mars, Mineralogy and Isotopes of carbon. His study in Hopanoids focuses on Sterane in particular.
His primary areas of study are Geochemistry, Mars Exploration Program, Environmental chemistry, Astrobiology and Organic matter. He works on Geochemistry which deals in particular with Sedimentary rock. His work deals with themes such as Sedimentary depositional environment and Mass spectrometry, which intersect with Mars Exploration Program.
His research in Environmental chemistry intersects with topics in Phototroph, Sulfate and Diagenesis. His study on Organic matter also encompasses disciplines like
Geochemistry, Sedimentary depositional environment, Sterane, Mars Exploration Program and Isotopes of carbon are his primary areas of study. Roger E. Summons conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Geochemistry and Extinction event through his research. His Sedimentary depositional environment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Carbonate, Concretion, Mineralogy, Nodule and Gogo Formation.
Within the field of Source rock and Hopanoids Roger E. Summons studies Sterane. His Hopanoids research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Oceanography, Biogeochemistry and Oxygen minimum zone. His work in Sample Analysis at Mars tackles topics such as Organic matter which are related to areas like Environmental chemistry.
