Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Basalt
  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Archean, Subduction, Oceanic crust and Basalt. His Geochemistry research focuses on Ophiolite and how it relates to Forearc. He interconnects Mantle wedge, Craton, Metamorphism, Metasomatism and Pillow lava in the investigation of issues within Archean.

In his work, Paleoarchean is strongly intertwined with Ultramafic rock, which is a subfield of Pillow lava. His Subduction research integrates issues from Mantle plume and Plate tectonics. His Oceanic crust research incorporates elements of Seafloor spreading and Volcanic arc.

His most cited work include:

  • Boninite-like volcanic rocks in the 3.7–3.8 Ga Isua greenstone belt, West Greenland: geochemical evidence for intra-oceanic subduction zone processes in the early Earth (526 citations)
  • Alteration and geochemical patterns in the 3.7–3.8 Ga Isua greenstone belt, West Greenland (449 citations)
  • Geochemistry of Neoarchean (ca. 2.55–2.50 Ga) volcanic and ophiolitic rocks in the Wutaishan greenstone belt, central orogenic belt, North China craton: Implications for geodynamic setting and continental growth (230 citations)

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

Ali Polat mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Craton, Archean, Subduction and Petrology. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Ophiolite and Geochemistry. His Craton research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Massif, Suture, Gneiss and Terrane.

Ali Polat studied Archean and Mélange that intersect with Collision zone. His work investigates the relationship between Subduction and topics such as Continental crust that intersect with problems in Earth science. His Petrology study also includes

  • Ultramafic rock which is related to area like Granulite,
  • Pillow lava together with Isua Greenstone Belt.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (111.16%)
  • Craton (60.71%)
  • Archean (50.89%)

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

  • Geochemistry (111.16%)
  • Craton (60.71%)
  • Archean (50.89%)

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

Ali Polat spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Craton, Archean, Zircon and Metamorphism. His study in Geochemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Subduction, Suture and Terrane. His Subduction research includes themes of Petrology and Continental crust.

His Craton study incorporates themes from Geochronology and Forearc. His Archean research incorporates themes from Ophiolite, Tectonics, Plate tectonics, Partial melting and Trace element. His work deals with themes such as Ultramafic rock and Petrogenesis, which intersect with Metamorphism.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Geology of a Neoarchean suture: Evidence from the Zunhua ophiolitic mélange of the Eastern Hebei Province, North China Craton (41 citations)
  • Geology of a Neoarchean suture: Evidence from the Zunhua ophiolitic mélange of the Eastern Hebei Province, North China Craton (41 citations)
  • Petrogenesis and geochronology of Paleoproterozoic magmatic rocks in the Kongling complex: Evidence for a collisional orogenic event in the Yangtze craton (14 citations)

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

  • Basalt
  • Plate tectonics
  • Igneous rock

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Craton, Archean, Metamorphism and North china. His research on Geochemistry frequently links to adjacent areas such as Anorthosite. His Craton research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Suture and Forearc.

His Archean study combines topics in areas such as Tectonics and Terrane. His Terrane study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Anatexis and Ultramafic rock. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Batholith, Gneiss, Igneous rock and Petrogenesis.
