He develops laboratory, telescopic and spacecraft spectrometers and imaging spectrometers. He has published over 300 scientific papers, including papers on every planet in the Solar System. His research includes discoveries of the compositions of planetary and satellite surfaces and mapping the locations of minerals on the Earth and planets. In 2009 he discovered widespread water on the surface of the Moon. He also publishes on environmental issues on the Earth, such as ecosystems in Yellowstone, led the USGS environmental assessment of the World Trade Center Disaster and developed a new method for measuring the amount of oil on the ocean's surface and leading to the first quantitative assessment of the amount of oil on the ocean's surface in the 2010 Deepwater Horizon, Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
