Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Astronomy
  • Galaxy
  • Astrophysics

Timothy C. Beers focuses on Astrophysics, Astronomy, Stars, Galaxy and Metallicity. His Astrophysics research focuses on Milky Way, Galactic halo, Sky, Nucleosynthesis and Galaxy formation and evolution. As a part of the same scientific study, Timothy C. Beers usually deals with the Milky Way, concentrating on Thick disk and frequently concerns with Orbital eccentricity and Thin disk.

His Stars research includes elements of Spectral line and Halo. Timothy C. Beers interconnects Astronomical spectroscopy and Observatory in the investigation of issues within Galaxy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Effective temperature, Main sequence, Open cluster, Surface gravity and Stellar evolution in addition to Metallicity.

His most cited work include:

  • The Seventh Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (4732 citations)
  • The Eleventh and Twelfth Data Releases of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: Final Data from SDSS-III (1837 citations)
  • The eleventh and twelfth data releases of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: final data from SDSS-III (1815 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Astrophysics, Stars, Astronomy, Galaxy and Metallicity. His work in Astrophysics tackles topics such as Spectral line which are related to areas like Line. His Stars research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Metal and Sky.

His Galaxy study often links to related topics such as Photometry. His study in Metallicity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Effective temperature, Spectroscopy, Giant star, Open cluster and Star formation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Galactic Center, Thick disk, Dwarf galaxy, Bulge and Galactic plane.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (98.16%)
  • Stars (79.19%)
  • Astronomy (44.16%)

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

  • Astrophysics (98.16%)
  • Stars (79.19%)
  • Milky Way (34.50%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Astrophysics, Stars, Milky Way, Metallicity and Halo. His is doing research in Galaxy, Galactic halo, r-process, Globular cluster and Dwarf galaxy, both of which are found in Astrophysics. His Galaxy study is concerned with the field of Astronomy as a whole.

The Stars study combines topics in areas such as Spectral line, Galaxy formation and evolution and Sky. Timothy C. Beers has researched Milky Way in several fields, including Galactic Center, Horizontal branch, Star formation, Universe and Disc. His Metallicity research focuses on Thick disk and how it connects with Thin disk.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Fourteenth Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: First Spectroscopic Data from the extended Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey and from the second phase of the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (799 citations)
  • The Fourteenth Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: First Spectroscopic data from the extended Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey and from the second phase of the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (753 citations)
  • Sloan Digital Sky Survey IV: Mapping the Milky Way, Nearby Galaxies and the Distant Universe (728 citations)

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

  • Astronomy
  • Galaxy
  • Milky Way

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Astrophysics, Stars, Milky Way, Galaxy and Galactic halo. His Astronomy research extends to Astrophysics, which is thematically connected. His Stars research integrates issues from Galaxy formation and evolution and Universe.

His Galaxy research focuses on Observatory and how it relates to Sky, Quasar, Telescope and Nuclear astrophysics. His Galactic halo research includes themes of Spectral line and Spectroscopy. His Metallicity research incorporates elements of Star formation and Open cluster.
