Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mineral
  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock

Axel Gerdes focuses on Geochemistry, Zircon, Metamorphism, Terrane and Gondwana. In his work, Anatexis is strongly intertwined with Petrology, which is a subfield of Geochemistry. His work carried out in the field of Zircon brings together such families of science as Provenance, Craton, Limpopo Belt, Granulite and Archean.

His research in Metamorphism intersects with topics in Massif, Eclogite and Metamorphic facies. His study explores the link between Terrane and topics such as Orogeny that cross with problems in Thermochronology, Late Devonian extinction, Devonian and Fission track dating. Axel Gerdes works mostly in the field of Gondwana, limiting it down to topics relating to Shear zone and, in certain cases, Geomorphology, as a part of the same area of interest.

His most cited work include:

  • Plesovice zircon : A new natural reference material for U-Pb and Hf isotopic microanalysis (2407 citations)
  • Combined U–Pb and Hf isotope LA-(MC-)ICP-MS analyses of detrital zircons: Comparison with SHRIMP and new constraints for the provenance and age of an Armorican metasediment in Central Germany (560 citations)
  • Zircon formation versus zircon alteration — New insights from combined U–Pb and Lu–Hf in-situ LA-ICP-MS analyses, and consequences for the interpretation of Archean zircon from the Central Zone of the Limpopo Belt (516 citations)

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

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Zircon, Paleontology, Terrane and Metamorphism. His work on Geochemistry is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Craton. In his research, Siliciclastic is intimately related to Provenance, which falls under the overarching field of Zircon.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Suture and Devonian in addition to Terrane. Axel Gerdes interconnects Granulite, Shear zone, Gneiss, Metamorphic facies and Monazite in the investigation of issues within Metamorphism. His Gondwana research integrates issues from Ordovician and Supercontinent.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (82.34%)
  • Zircon (54.65%)
  • Paleontology (20.63%)

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

  • Geochemistry (82.34%)
  • Zircon (54.65%)
  • Paleontology (20.63%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Zircon, Paleontology, Metamorphic rock and Mafic. His work on Craton expands to the thematically related Geochemistry. Axel Gerdes interconnects Igneous rock, Continental crust, Crust, Granulite and Basement in the investigation of issues within Zircon.

His Basement research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Clastic rock and Terrane. Axel Gerdes has included themes like Shear zone, Continental collision and Paleozoic in his Metamorphic rock study. His study in Metamorphism is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Schist and Monazite.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Testing the preservation potential of early diagenetic dolomites as geochemical archives (13 citations)
  • Hafnium Isotopic Composition of the Bushveld Complex Requires Mantle Melt–Upper Crust Mixing: New Evidence from Zirconology of Mafic, Felsic and Metasedimentary Rocks (12 citations)
  • High-Mg and Low-Mg Mantle Eclogites from Koidu (West African Craton) Linked by Neoproterozoic Ultramafic Melt Metasomatism of Subducted Archaean Plateau-like Oceanic Crust (11 citations)

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

  • Mineral
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology

His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Zircon, Mantle, Mafic and Metasomatism. Axel Gerdes has researched Geochemistry in several fields, including Craton and Dolomitization. His Zircon study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Orogeny, Crust, Granulite, Basement and Gondwana.

His research integrates issues of Devonian and Ophiolite in his study of Gondwana. The concepts of his Mantle study are interwoven with issues in Felsic and Lithosphere. As a member of one scientific family, Axel Gerdes mostly works in the field of Mafic, focusing on Partial melting and, on occasion, Mantle wedge and Amphibole.
