Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Ecology
  • Sedimentary rock

His primary scientific interests are in Mineralogy, Hot spring, Calcite, Geochemistry and Paleontology. Brian Jones combines subjects such as Geyserite, Cementation and Sedimentary rock with his study of Mineralogy. The various areas that he examines in his Hot spring study include Volcano, Ecology, Spring, Stromatolite and Subaerial.

His Calcite research includes elements of Crystal growth, Crystal, Cement and Holocene climatic optimum. His Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Tufa and Rift valley. His Paleontology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Reef, Fringing reef, Benthic zone and Sea level.

His most cited work include:

  • Geochemistry of brachiopods: Oxygen and carbon isotopic records of Paleozoic oceans☆ (289 citations)
  • Nutrient-Gradient Controls on Devonian Reefs: Insight from the Ramp-Situated Alexandra Reef System (Frasnian), Northwest Territories, Canada (183 citations)
  • Biogenicity of Silica Precipitation Around Geysers and Hot-Spring Vents, North Island, New Zealand (145 citations)

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

Brian Jones mainly focuses on Paleontology, Mineralogy, Calcite, Geochemistry and Diagenesis. His Paleontology research integrates issues from Reef, Oceanography, Sea level and Arctic. His research integrates issues of Geyserite, Hot spring, Crystal and Spring in his study of Mineralogy.

His biological study deals with issues like Cave, which deal with fields such as Karst. In his research, Facies is intimately related to Sedimentary depositional environment, which falls under the overarching field of Geochemistry. His Diagenesis study which covers Pleistocene that intersects with Quaternary.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (39.74%)
  • Mineralogy (32.91%)
  • Calcite (31.62%)

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

  • Geochemistry (30.77%)
  • Paleontology (39.74%)
  • Diagenesis (19.23%)

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

Brian Jones mainly investigates Geochemistry, Paleontology, Diagenesis, Calcite and Dolomitization. His work deals with themes such as Piedra, Spring and Facies, which intersect with Geochemistry. His Structural basin, Neogene and Tectonics study in the realm of Paleontology connects with subjects such as Cayman Islands.

The Diagenesis study combines topics in areas such as Quaternary and Meteoric water. Calcite is a subfield of Mineralogy that Brian Jones studies. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sea level, Dolostone and Dolomite in addition to Dolomitization.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Review of calcium carbonate polymorph precipitation in spring systems (45 citations)
  • Review of aragonite and calcite crystal morphogenesis in thermal spring systems (33 citations)
  • Diagenetic overprint on negative δ13C excursions across the Permian/Triassic boundary: A case study from Meishan section, China (20 citations)

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

  • Ecology
  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock

Brian Jones spends much of his time researching Calcite, Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Aragonite and Dolomitization. The study of Calcite is intertwined with the study of Sedimentary depositional environment in a number of ways. His research on Sedimentary depositional environment concerns the broader Paleontology.

Brian Jones undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Geochemistry and Microbial mat through his research. His Aragonite research includes themes of Nanocrystal, Crystal and Spring. His Dolomitization study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Dolomite, Diagenesis, Tectonic subsidence, Sea level and Neogene.
