Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Zircon, Archean, Gneiss and Metamorphism. The study incorporates disciplines such as Metamorphic facies and Petrology in addition to Geochemistry. His study in Zircon is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Felsic, Mafic, Proterozoic and Igneous rock.

His Archean study frequently links to other fields, such as Crust. His work deals with themes such as Protolith, Earth science, Terrane and Geochronology, which intersect with Gneiss. Allen P. Nutman has researched Metamorphism in several fields, including Metamorphic rock and Precambrian.

His most cited work include:

  • Remnants of ≥3800 Ma crust in the Chinese part of the Sino-Korean craton (1033 citations)
  • Evidence for life on Earth before 3,800 million years ago. (944 citations)
  • 3800 to 2500 Ma crustal evolution in the Anshan area of Liaoning Province, northeastern China (488 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Zircon, Archean, Gneiss and Metamorphism. His studies in Geochemistry integrate themes in fields like Metamorphic facies, Petrology and Terrane. His Zircon research includes elements of Mafic, Craton, Igneous rock and Geochronology.

His Archean research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Precambrian, Earth science, Continental crust and Ultramafic rock. His Gneiss research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Anatexis, Partial melting and Isochron. His Metamorphism study incorporates themes from Eclogite, Granulite and Proterozoic.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (89.45%)
  • Zircon (60.36%)
  • Archean (42.91%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (89.45%)
  • Zircon (60.36%)
  • Archean (42.91%)

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

Allen P. Nutman focuses on Geochemistry, Zircon, Archean, Metamorphism and Terrane. His Geochemistry research incorporates themes from Craton and Petrology. His Zircon study combines topics in areas such as Gondwana, Gneiss, Metamorphic facies and Mafic.

His research in Gneiss intersects with topics in Partial melting and Continental crust. The Archean study combines topics in areas such as Precambrian and Early Earth. His Metamorphism study incorporates themes from Metamorphic rock and Fold.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Rapid emergence of life shown by discovery of 3,700-million-year-old microbial structures (266 citations)
  • Rapid emergence of life shown by discovery of 3,700-million-year-old microbial structures (266 citations)
  • Episodic Paleoproterozoic (~2.45, ~1.95 and ~1.85 Ga) mafic magmatism and associated high temperature metamorphism in the Daqingshan area, North China Craton: SHRIMP zircon U-Pb dating and whole-rock geochemistry (98 citations)
