Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Organic chemistry

Baruch Spiro mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Isotopes of oxygen, Calcite and Sedimentary rock. Specifically, his work in Geochemistry is concerned with the study of Dolomite. He has included themes like Cretaceous, Sterane, Clastic rock, Carbonate and Kerogen in his Mineralogy study.

The concepts of his Isotopes of oxygen study are interwoven with issues in Range, Gongrosira, Ecology and Algae. He works mostly in the field of Calcite, limiting it down to topics relating to Proterozoic and, in certain cases, Precambrian, Micrite and Sedimentary depositional environment, as a part of the same area of interest. His Sedimentary rock research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Igneous rock and Diagenesis.

His most cited work include:

  • Controls on trace element Sr-Mg compositions of carbonate cave waters: implications for speleothem climatic records (391 citations)
  • Holocene climate variability in Europe: Evidence from δ18O, textural and extension-rate variations in three speleothems (186 citations)
  • Fluid and geochemical transport through oceanic crust: a transect across the eastern flank of the Juan de Fuca Ridge (182 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Paleontology, Carbonate and Environmental chemistry. His research ties Coal and Geochemistry together. The Mineralogy study combines topics in areas such as Mineral, Gypsum, Pyrolysis, Petrophysics and Quartz.

His research investigates the connection with Environmental chemistry and areas like Particulates which intersect with concerns in Smelting and Air pollution. He works mostly in the field of Isotopes of oxygen, limiting it down to concerns involving δ18O and, occasionally, Oceanography and Sediment. Baruch Spiro has researched Dolomite in several fields, including Authigenic and Trace element.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (48.65%)
  • Mineralogy (29.05%)
  • Paleontology (21.62%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (48.65%)
  • Coal (15.54%)
  • Mineralogy (29.05%)

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

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Coal, Mineralogy, Petrophysics and Paleontology. His δ18O research extends to Geochemistry, which is thematically connected. His Coal research integrates issues from Peat and Volcanic ash.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Mineral and Isotopes of oxygen in addition to Mineralogy. In the field of Paleontology, his study on Structural basin, Cenozoic and Devonian overlaps with subjects such as Tethys Ocean. His Dolomite research incorporates elements of Kutnohorite, Carbonate, Aragonite, Calcite and δ13C.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Modes of occurrence and origin of mineral matter in the Palaeogene coal (No. 19-2) from the Hunchun Coalfield, Jilin Province, China (34 citations)
  • Marine derived 87Sr/86Sr in coal, a new key to geochronology and palaeoenvironment: Elucidation of the India-Eurasia and China-Indochina collisions in Yunnan, China (28 citations)
  • Marine derived 87Sr/86Sr in coal, a new key to geochronology and palaeoenvironment: Elucidation of the India-Eurasia and China-Indochina collisions in Yunnan, China (28 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Organic chemistry

Baruch Spiro mainly investigates Coal, Geochemistry, Coal mining, Volcanic ash and Structural basin. His Isotopes of oxygen, Strontianite and Baryte study, which is part of a larger body of work in Geochemistry, is frequently linked to Rare-earth element and Carbonatite, bridging the gap between disciplines. Baruch Spiro combines subjects such as Volcano, Permian, Period and Zircon with his study of Coal mining.

The various areas that Baruch Spiro examines in his Volcanic ash study include Sedimentary rock, Illite and Volcanic rock. His Structural basin study improves the overall literature in Paleontology. His Foraminifera research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Deposition and Graben.
