Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt
  • Ecology

His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Archean, Trace element, Mineralogy and Continental crust. His research in Isua Greenstone Belt, Gneiss, Mantle, Igneous rock and Zircon are components of Geochemistry. His research in Zircon intersects with topics in Batholith, Mafic and Geochronology.

His study in Archean is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sedimentary rock, Pilbara Craton and Stromatolite. His Trace element research incorporates elements of Diagenesis, Basalt and Coral, Porites. His Mineralogy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Precambrian, Metamictization and Isochron.

His most cited work include:

  • Stromatolite reef from the Early Archaean era of Australia (577 citations)
  • Age significance of U-Th-Pb zircon data from early Archaean rocks of west Greenland - a reassessment based on combined ion-microprobe and imaging studies - reply (497 citations)
  • Rare earth elements in Holocene reefal microbialites: a new shallow seawater proxy (439 citations)

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

Balz S. Kamber focuses on Geochemistry, Archean, Trace element, Mantle and Mineralogy. His research investigates the connection between Geochemistry and topics such as Metallogeny that intersect with problems in Mineral. His Archean research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Earth science, Precambrian and Craton.

His study looks at the relationship between Trace element and fields such as Environmental chemistry, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. The study incorporates disciplines such as Subduction, Oceanic crust, Crust, Lithosphere and Petrology in addition to Mantle. His work on Pyrite as part of general Mineralogy research is frequently linked to Rare-earth element, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (63.49%)
  • Archean (20.00%)
  • Trace element (20.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (63.49%)
  • Trace element (20.00%)
  • Weathering (4.13%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Trace element, Weathering, Mineralogy and Impact crater. His study in Mantle, Zircon, Olivine, Crust and Hadean is carried out as part of his studies in Geochemistry. While the research belongs to areas of Mantle, he spends his time largely on the problem of Craton, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Lithosphere, Archean, Petrography and Enstatite.

His studies in Trace element integrate themes in fields like Peat, Pollution, Magma and Continental crust. His Continental crust study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Carbonate, Hydrothermal circulation and Limpopo Belt. The various areas that Balz S. Kamber examines in his Weathering study include Earth science, Laterite and Diagenesis.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Volcanic crystals as time capsules of eruption history. (52 citations)
  • A new approach to laser-ablation inductively-coupled-plasma mass-spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) using the flexible map interrogation tool ‘Monocle’ (37 citations)
  • Palaeo-dust records: A window to understanding past environments (30 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Ecology
  • Basalt

Balz S. Kamber mainly investigates Geochemistry, Trace element, Crust, Weathering and Basalt. His Geochemistry research incorporates themes from Impact structure and Impact crater. In Trace element, Balz S. Kamber works on issues like Mineralogy, which are connected to Alluvium, Clastic rock and Huronian glaciation.

His Weathering study combines topics in areas such as Secular equilibrium, Outcrop, Laterite and Silicate. He has researched Mantle in several fields, including Craton and Olivine. His Craton research incorporates themes from Continental crust, Ultramafic rock, Lithosphere, Kimberlite and Archean.
