Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mineral
  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock

Andrew G. Tomkins mainly investigates Geochemistry, Arsenopyrite, Partial melting, Pyrite and Greenschist. His work in the fields of Geochemistry, such as Metamorphism and Metamorphic rock, overlaps with other areas such as Granulite and Metamorphic facies. His Metamorphism study which covers Pyrrhotite that intersects with Continental crust, Chlorite and Orpiment.

His Metamorphic rock research incorporates elements of Electron microprobe, Hydrothermal circulation, Mineral redox buffer, Silicate and Archean. As a part of the same scientific family, Andrew G. Tomkins mostly works in the field of Partial melting, focusing on Sulfide minerals and, on occasion, Galena. The study incorporates disciplines such as Ankerite, Quartz, Trace element and Mafic in addition to Pyrite.

His most cited work include:

  • Windows of metamorphic sulfur liberation in the crust: Implications for gold deposit genesis (189 citations)
  • PARTIAL MELTING OF SULFIDE ORE DEPOSITS DURING MEDIUM- AND HIGH-GRADE METAMORPHISM (130 citations)
  • Mobilization of Gold as a Polymetallic Melt during Pelite Anatexis at the Challenger Deposit, South Australia: A Metamorphosed Archean Gold Deposit (112 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Geochemistry, Metamorphic rock, Pyrite, Metamorphism and Meteorite. His work on Partial melting as part of general Geochemistry research is frequently linked to Metamorphic facies, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. The various areas that Andrew G. Tomkins examines in his Metamorphic rock study include Continental crust, Scapolite, Biotite and Electron microprobe.

His Pyrite research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Sedimentary rock, Sulfide, Sulfur and Archean. His study in the field of Greenschist and Protolith also crosses realms of Granulite and Shear zone. When carried out as part of a general Meteorite research project, his work on Chondrite is frequently linked to work in Population, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (79.46%)
  • Metamorphic rock (23.21%)
  • Pyrite (23.21%)

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

  • Geochemistry (79.46%)
  • Meteorite (17.86%)
  • Astrobiology (9.82%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Meteorite, Astrobiology, Metamorphic rock and Crust. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Quartz, Bearing and Arsenic. His work on Chondrite as part of his general Meteorite study is frequently connected to Micrometer scale, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His work carried out in the field of Metamorphic rock brings together such families of science as Metamorphism and Scapolite. Specifically, his work in Metamorphism is concerned with the study of Greenschist. His study explores the link between Martian and topics such as Regolith that cross with problems in Pyrite.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Arsenic evolution as a tool for understanding formation of pyritic gold ores (24 citations)
  • Aseismic Refinement of Orogenic Gold Systems (10 citations)
  • A Global Fireball Observatory (8 citations)

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

  • Mineral
  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock

Geochemistry, Astrobiology, Mars Exploration Program, Environmental science and Quartz are his primary areas of study. In his research, Andrew G. Tomkins performs multidisciplinary study on Geochemistry and Fractionation. In general Astrobiology, his work in Solar System is often linked to Computer science and Population linking many areas of study.

His Solar System research incorporates elements of Planetary science, Meteoroid, Meteorite and Asteroid. He has included themes like Sedimentary rock and Atmospheric chemistry in his Mars Exploration Program study. The concepts of his Quartz study are interwoven with issues in Mineral alteration, Hydrothermal circulation and Gangue.
