Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Plate tectonics

His primary scientific interests are in Mineralogy, Paleontology, Clay minerals, Fault and Geochemistry. His work on Diagenesis as part of general Mineralogy study is frequently linked to Remanence, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Clay minerals study incorporates themes from Sedimentary rock, San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth, Silicate and Protolith.

His studies examine the connections between Fault and genetics, as well as such issues in Authigenic, with regards to Fault gouge, Illite and Geochronology. Ben A. van der Pluijm works mostly in the field of Geochemistry, limiting it down to topics relating to Recrystallization and, in certain cases, Radiometric dating, Compaction, Volcanic glass, Texture and Crust. His Tectonics study which covers Deformation that intersects with Seismology, Extensional tectonics, Thrust tectonics and Lineation.

His most cited work include:

  • Earth Structure: An Introduction to Structural Geology and Tectonics (249 citations)
  • Evolution of magnetic fabrics during incipient deformation of mudrocks (Pyrenees, northern Spain) (205 citations)
  • Mineralogical characterization of protolith and fault rocks from the SAFOD Main Hole (187 citations)

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

His main research concerns Paleontology, Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Paleomagnetism and Seismology. As a part of the same scientific study, Ben A. van der Pluijm usually deals with the Paleontology, concentrating on Geomorphology and frequently concerns with Craton. His work in the fields of Mineralogy, such as Clay minerals, intersects with other areas such as Bedding.

His Paleomagnetism course of study focuses on Fold and Foreland basin. The Illite study which covers Authigenic that intersects with Fault and Radiometric dating. Within one scientific family, Ben A. van der Pluijm focuses on topics pertaining to Shear zone under Metamorphic rock, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Crust.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (25.76%)
  • Mineralogy (25.33%)
  • Geochemistry (24.45%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2020)?

  • Geochemistry (24.45%)
  • Earth (4.80%)
  • Paleontology (25.76%)

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

Ben A. van der Pluijm mostly deals with Geochemistry, Earth, Paleontology, Illite and Fold. His Metamorphic rock and Clay minerals study, which is part of a larger body of work in Geochemistry, is frequently linked to Mineralization, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work on Geologic history, Continental margin, Unconformity and Tectonics as part of general Paleontology research is frequently linked to Eccentricity, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Illite is a subfield of Mineralogy that he investigates. His studies in Mineralogy integrate themes in fields like Powder diffraction, Provenance and Grain size. Ben A. van der Pluijm has included themes like Paleomagnetism, Foreland basin and Salient in his Fold study.

Between 2015 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Global quieting of high-frequency seismic noise due to COVID-19 pandemic lockdown measures. (53 citations)
  • Meteoric fluid infiltration in crustal-scale normal fault systems as indicated by δ18O and δ2H geochemistry and 40Ar/39Ar dating of neoformed clays in brittle fault rocks (16 citations)
  • XRD-based 40Ar/39Ar age correction for fine-grained illite, with application to folded carbonates in the Monterrey Salient (northern Mexico) (15 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Composite material

Geochemistry, Illite, Authigenic, Clay minerals and Metamorphic rock are his primary areas of study. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Infiltration, Paleontology and Fault gouge. His study looks at the relationship between Illite and topics such as Chlorite, which overlap with Schist and Protolith.

His Authigenic study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Mineralogy. His Mineralogy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Metamorphism, Grain size and Crystallite. His work carried out in the field of Clay minerals brings together such families of science as Glacial period, Aridification, Fold, Fold and thrust belt and Late Miocene.
