Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock
  • Paleontology

Brian F. Windley mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Metamorphism, Paleontology, Terrane and Zircon. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Granulite and Petrology. His Metamorphism study incorporates themes from Metamorphic rock, Metamorphic facies and Suture.

His work on Craton, Subduction, Continental margin and Paleozoic as part of his general Paleontology study is frequently connected to Central asia, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His studies in Craton integrate themes in fields like Permian and Geomorphology. His Terrane research includes themes of Continental crust, Crust, Andesites, Island arc and Precambrian.

His most cited work include:

  • Recognition of ocean plate stratigraphy in accretionary orogens through Earth history: A record of 3.8billion years of sea floor spreading, subduction, and accretion (170 citations)
  • Mineral ages and P-T conditions of Late Paleozoic high-pressure eclogite and provenance of mélange sediments from Atbashi in the south Tianshan orogen of Kyrgyzstan (164 citations)
  • Ordovician 40Ar/39Ar phengite ages from the blueschist-facies Ondor Sum subduction-accretion complex (Inner Mongolia) and implications for the early Paleozoic history of continental blocks in China and adjacent areas (152 citations)

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

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Paleontology, Zircon, Tectonics and Metamorphism. His Geochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Subduction, Granulite and Petrology. Paleontology is closely attributed to Geomorphology in his work.

Brian F. Windley interconnects Clastic rock and Geochronology in the investigation of issues within Zircon. His Tectonics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as China and Crust. His Metamorphism study which covers Precambrian that intersects with Gondwana.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (61.69%)
  • Paleontology (31.19%)
  • Zircon (18.31%)

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

  • Geochemistry (61.69%)
  • Paleontology (31.19%)
  • Subduction (17.97%)

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

Brian F. Windley mainly investigates Geochemistry, Paleontology, Subduction, Tectonics and Zircon. His Geochemistry research incorporates elements of Craton and Forearc. His Craton study incorporates themes from Rift and Geomorphology.

His Subduction research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lithosphere and Carboniferous. Brian F. Windley has included themes like Metamorphic rock, Gneiss, Petrology, Volcanic rock and Clastic rock in his Zircon study. His study on Plate tectonics also encompasses disciplines like

  • Archean that connect with fields like Crust, Oceanic crust, Metamorphism and Dharwar Craton,
  • Orogeny that intertwine with fields like Hadean.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Insights into the tectonic evolution of the North China Craton through comparative tectonic analysis: A record of outward growth of Precambrian continents (144 citations)
  • Insights into the tectonic evolution of the North China Craton through comparative tectonic analysis: A record of outward growth of Precambrian continents (144 citations)
  • Late Paleozoic to early Triassic multiple roll-back and oroclinal bending of the Mongolia collage in Central Asia (143 citations)
