Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt
  • Mineral

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Zircon, Archean, Paleontology and Craton. Metamorphism, Basalt, Igneous rock, Breccia and Crust are the core of his Geochemistry study. His Breccia research incorporates themes from Impact crater, Incompatible element, Martian, Meteorite and Regolith.

Alexander A. Nemchin studies Zircon, namely Hadean. His Archean study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Precambrian, Provenance, Proterozoic and Protolith. His Craton research incorporates elements of Basement and Felsic.

His most cited work include:

  • Early Palaeozoic orogenesis along the Indian margin of Gondwana: Tectonic response to Gondwana assembly (293 citations)
  • Hadean crustal evolution revisited: New constraints from Pb-Hf isotope systematics of the Jack Hills zircons (286 citations)
  • Granitoid evolution in the Late Archean Wutai Complex, North China Craton (266 citations)

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

Geochemistry, Zircon, Breccia, Mineralogy and Archean are his primary areas of study. His research investigates the connection with Geochemistry and areas like Meteorite which intersect with concerns in Martian. His research integrates issues of Metamorphism, Petrology and Yilgarn Craton in his study of Zircon.

The Breccia study which covers Plagioclase that intersects with Pyroxene. Alexander A. Nemchin interconnects Secondary ion mass spectrometry and Electron backscatter diffraction in the investigation of issues within Mineralogy. The Archean study combines topics in areas such as Gneiss, Provenance, Detritus and Craton.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (103.61%)
  • Zircon (76.31%)
  • Breccia (45.78%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (103.61%)
  • Zircon (76.31%)
  • Breccia (45.78%)

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

His primary areas of study are Geochemistry, Zircon, Breccia, Meteorite and Mantle. His study on Geochemistry is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Martian. His Zircon research incorporates themes from Impact structure, Impact crater and Geochronology.

His work carried out in the field of Geochronology brings together such families of science as Archean and Source rock. The various areas that he examines in his Breccia study include Lunar meteorite, Felsite and Regolith. The study incorporates disciplines such as Isotopic composition and Isochron in addition to Mantle.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Evidence for extremely rapid magma ocean crystallization and crust formation on Mars (63 citations)
  • A new U-Pb age for shock-recrystallised zircon from the Lappajärvi impact crater, Finland, and implications for the accurate dating of impact events (27 citations)
  • A new U-Pb age for shock-recrystallised zircon from the Lappajärvi impact crater, Finland, and implications for the accurate dating of impact events (27 citations)

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

  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock
  • Mineral

Alexander A. Nemchin focuses on Geochemistry, Zircon, Breccia, Jack Hills and Hadean. His Geochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Regolith and Meteorite. His Zircon research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Impact structure, Impact crater, Igneous rock and Crust.

His work deals with themes such as Overprinting and Recrystallization, which intersect with Jack Hills. His studies in Radiogenic nuclide integrate themes in fields like Martian, Enstatite, Chondrite and Isochron. His work on KREEP and Lunar magma ocean as part of his general Basalt study is frequently connected to Sample collection, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.
