Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Solar System
  • Geochemistry
  • Astronomy

His main research concerns Meteorite, Chondrite, Astrobiology, Mantle and Geochemistry. As part of the same scientific family, Thorsten Kleine usually focuses on Chondrite, concentrating on Radiogenic nuclide and intersecting with Planetesimal. His study in Astrobiology focuses on Formation and evolution of the Solar System and Solar System.

His studies in Formation and evolution of the Solar System integrate themes in fields like Martian and Nucleosynthesis. His Mantle research includes themes of Mineralogy and Silicate. Thorsten Kleine combines subjects such as Allende meteorite, Parent body and Isotope with his study of Geochemistry.

His most cited work include:

  • Rapid accretion and early core formation on asteroids and the terrestrial planets from Hf-W chronometry. (582 citations)
  • Hf-W chronology of the accretion and early evolution of asteroids and terrestrial planets (434 citations)
  • Late formation and prolonged differentiation of the Moon inferred from W isotopes in lunar metals. (358 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Meteorite, Astrobiology, Chondrite, Isotope and Geochemistry. His Meteorite research focuses on Analytical chemistry and how it relates to Isotope fractionation. Thorsten Kleine interconnects Terrestrial planet, Planet and Earth in the investigation of issues within Astrobiology.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Silicate and Asteroid. His Geochemistry study typically links adjacent topics like Eucrite. The concepts of his Mantle study are interwoven with issues in Martian, Mars Exploration Program, Mantle convection and Crust.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Meteorite (46.31%)
  • Astrobiology (45.81%)
  • Chondrite (36.95%)

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

  • Isotope (25.62%)
  • Meteorite (46.31%)
  • Chondrite (36.95%)

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

His main research concerns Isotope, Meteorite, Chondrite, Astrobiology and Geochemistry. His work deals with themes such as Enstatite, Planetesimal, Silicate and Iron meteorite, which intersect with Isotope. His Meteorite study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Solar System.

Thorsten Kleine usually deals with Chondrite and limits it to topics linked to Astrophysics and Chronometry. Thorsten Kleine has included themes like Terrestrial planet, Planet and Earth in his Astrobiology study. His Geochemistry study is mostly concerned with Basalt and Mantle.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Origin of the non-carbonaceous-carbonaceous meteorite dichotomy (58 citations)
  • Molybdenum isotopic evidence for the late accretion of outer Solar System material to Earth (48 citations)
  • Elemental and isotopic variability in solar system materials by mixing and processing of primordial disk reservoirs (35 citations)

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

  • Solar System
  • Basalt
  • Isotope

Thorsten Kleine focuses on Meteorite, Isotope, Astrobiology, Solar System and Earth. His work in Meteorite addresses issues such as Molybdenum, which are connected to fields such as Tungsten, Iron meteorite, Analytical chemistry and Redox. His Isotope study combines topics in areas such as Enstatite and Astrophysics.

In most of his Astrobiology studies, his work intersects topics such as Terrestrial planet. In his study, Nuclide and Isotopic composition is strongly linked to Protoplanetary disk, which falls under the umbrella field of Solar System. The study incorporates disciplines such as Silicate minerals and Parent body in addition to Geochemistry.
