Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Astronomy
  • Volcano
  • Infrared

Rosaly M. C. Lopes spends much of his time researching Titan, Astrobiology, Radar imaging, Remote sensing and Impact crater. His Titan study combines topics in areas such as Latitude, Fluvial, Atmospheric sciences, Synthetic aperture radar and Geomorphology. His Astrobiology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Volcano, Plume and Icy moon.

His Volcano research incorporates themes from Galilean moons, Geophysics and Igneous rock. His research investigates the connection between Radar imaging and topics such as Brightness that intersect with issues in Atmosphere and Polar. The concepts of his Remote sensing study are interwoven with issues in Emissivity and Brightness temperature.

His most cited work include:

  • The lakes of Titan (442 citations)
  • Cassini Encounters Enceladus: Background and the Discovery of a South Polar Hot Spot (416 citations)
  • The sand seas of Titan: Cassini RADAR observations of longitudinal dunes. (292 citations)

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

Rosaly M. C. Lopes focuses on Titan, Astrobiology, Volcano, Remote sensing and Impact crater. His study looks at the intersection of Titan and topics like Fluvial with Aeolian processes. His work on Solar System, Enceladus and Planetary science as part of general Astrobiology research is often related to Environmental science, thus linking different fields of science.

His Volcano research focuses on subjects like Volcanism, which are linked to Earth science. His Radar imaging research extends to Remote sensing, which is thematically connected. The various areas that Rosaly M. C. Lopes examines in his Lava study include Petrology, Basalt, Caldera and Magma.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Titan (63.02%)
  • Astrobiology (42.45%)
  • Volcano (19.27%)

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

  • Titan (63.02%)
  • Astrobiology (42.45%)
  • Impact crater (13.80%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Titan, Astrobiology, Impact crater, Solar System and Latitude. His Titan study also includes fields such as

  • Radiative transfer together with Haze,
  • Atmospheric sciences together with Synthetic aperture radar. He combines subjects such as Atmosphere and Orbiter with his study of Astrobiology.

As a part of the same scientific study, Rosaly M. C. Lopes usually deals with the Impact crater, concentrating on Alluvial fan and frequently concerns with Chemical composition. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Equator, Geophysics and Spitzer Space Telescope. His research in Longitude tackles topics such as Tidal heating which are related to areas like Galilean moons and Volcano.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Geomorphologic mapping of titan's polar terrains: Constraining surface processes and landscape evolution (36 citations)
  • The Spectral Nature of Titan's Major Geomorphological Units: Constraints on Surface Composition (20 citations)
  • Morphological evidence that Titan’s southern hemisphere basins are paleoseas (16 citations)

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

  • Astronomy
  • Volcano
  • Solar System

His main research concerns Titan, Astrobiology, Latitude, Impact crater and Polar. His research in Titan intersects with topics in Fluvial, Orbiter, Geomorphology, Sedimentary depositional environment and Radiative transfer. The study incorporates disciplines such as Northern Hemisphere, Atmospheric sciences, Synthetic aperture radar, Remote sensing and Haze in addition to Radiative transfer.

In the subject of general Astrobiology, his work in Geology of Pluto, Earth, Enceladus and Exploration of Saturn is often linked to Environmental science, thereby combining diverse domains of study. He has included themes like Bedrock, Feature, Structural basin and Erosion in his Impact crater study. His work deals with themes such as Southern Hemisphere, Paleontology, Sequence stratigraphy and Evaporite, which intersect with Polar.
