Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock
  • Volcano

Andrew C. Kerr mainly investigates Geochemistry, Basalt, Oceanic plateau, Mantle plume and Flood basalt. Igneous rock, Mantle, Continental crust, Paleozoic and Precambrian are the core of his Geochemistry study. His Mantle research incorporates elements of Eclogite, Crust, Ocean island basalt, Iceland plume and Hotspot.

His Basalt research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Volcano, Volcanic rock and Ultramafic rock. His Volcanic rock research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Petrology, Mafic, Island arc, Volcanic arc and Petrogenesis. His work carried out in the field of Oceanic plateau brings together such families of science as Volcanic plateau and Plateau.

His most cited work include:

  • The Amount of Recycled Crust in Sources of Mantle-Derived Melts (858 citations)
  • Classification of Altered Volcanic Island Arc Rocks using Immobile Trace Elements: Development of the Th–Co Discrimination Diagram (472 citations)
  • Are we now living in the Anthropocene (453 citations)

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

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Basalt, Mantle, Oceanic plateau and Mantle plume. Geochemistry is closely attributed to Subduction in his work. His Basalt research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Lava, Ultramafic rock, Continental crust and Volcanic rock.

His research in Mantle intersects with topics in Picrite basalt, Lithosphere, Olivine and Hotspot. His Oceanic plateau research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Plateau, Island arc and Cretaceous. His Mantle plume research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Flood basalt, Magmatism, Large igneous province and Earth science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (69.36%)
  • Basalt (31.21%)
  • Mantle (27.75%)

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

  • Geochemistry (69.36%)
  • Mantle (27.75%)
  • Internal medicine (4.05%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Mantle, Internal medicine, Mafic and Cardiology. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Subduction under Geochemistry, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Lithosphere. His Mantle research includes themes of Mantle plume, Large igneous province, Oceanic plateau and Island arc.

Andrew C. Kerr combines subjects such as Fractional crystallization, Diorite and Igneous rock, Gabbro with his study of Mafic. His studies examine the connections between Igneous rock and genetics, as well as such issues in Phenocryst, with regards to Magma. His Basalt study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Picrite basalt, Trachybasalt and Ultramafic rock.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Accreted seamounts in North Tianshan, NW China: implications for the evolution of the Central Asian Orogenic Belt (19 citations)
  • Evidence for subaerial development of the Caribbean oceanic plateau in the Late Cretaceous and palaeo-environmental implications (16 citations)
  • Extensive crustal extraction in Earth’s early history inferred from molybdenum isotopes (13 citations)

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

  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock
  • Volcano

His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Mafic, Continental crust, Crust and Zircon. His Geochemistry study incorporates themes from Basement and Supercontinent. His Mafic study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Fractional crystallization, Igneous rock, Gabbro, Diorite and Petrogenesis.

The Continental crust study combines topics in areas such as Magmatism and Archean. Many of his studies on Mantle involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Basalt. His studies deal with areas such as Accretionary wedge, Oceanic crust, Seamount and Ultramafic rock as well as Basalt.
