Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Plate tectonics
  • Paleontology

Brian K. Horton mainly investigates Paleontology, Foreland basin, Cenozoic, Provenance and Paleogene. His Foreland basin study is concerned with Geomorphology in general. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Cenozoic, Chronostratigraphy, Permian and Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere is strongly linked to Paleozoic.

His Provenance study incorporates themes from Craton and Zircon. His research integrates issues of Proterozoic, Petrology, Geochronology, Precambrian and Terrane in his study of Zircon. His work is dedicated to discovering how Paleogene, Magnetostratigraphy are connected with Facies and other disciplines.

His most cited work include:

  • Modern and ancient fluvial megafans in the foreland basin system of the central Andes, southern Bolivia: implications for drainage network evolution in fold- thrust belts (236 citations)
  • U-Pb zircon geochronology of late Neoproterozoic–Early Cambrian granitoids in Iran: Implications for paleogeography, magmatism, and exhumation history of Iranian basement (214 citations)
  • U-Pb zircon geochronology of late Neoproterozoic–Early Cambrian granitoids in Iran: Implications for paleogeography, magmatism, and exhumation history of Iranian basement (214 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Paleontology, Foreland basin, Provenance, Geomorphology and Geochemistry. His study in Cenozoic, Structural basin, Cretaceous, Paleogene and Tectonics is carried out as part of his studies in Paleontology. In his study, Seismology is inextricably linked to Fold, which falls within the broad field of Foreland basin.

His research in Provenance tackles topics such as Alluvial fan which are related to areas like Conglomerate. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Mountain formation and Thrust fault. His Zircon research incorporates elements of Gondwana, Paleozoic, Petrology and Geochronology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (71.94%)
  • Foreland basin (40.82%)
  • Provenance (33.67%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Paleontology (71.94%)
  • Foreland basin (40.82%)
  • Provenance (33.67%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Paleontology, Foreland basin, Provenance, Geochemistry and Cretaceous. His work on Paleontology deals in particular with Structural basin, Unconformity, Basement, Cenozoic and Orogeny. His Foreland basin research incorporates themes from Fluvial, Sedimentary rock, Deformation, Sedimentary depositional environment and Neogene.

Brian K. Horton combines subjects such as Alluvial fan, Diachronous and Back-arc basin with his study of Provenance. When carried out as part of a general Cretaceous research project, his work on Paleogene is frequently linked to work in Architecture, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His study in Zircon is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Permian and Fold.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Magnetic polarity stratigraphy, provenance, and paleoclimate analysis of Cenozoic strata in the Qaidam Basin, NE Tibetan Plateau (29 citations)
  • Mesozoic to Cenozoic retroarc basin evolution during changes in tectonic regime, southern Central Andes (31–33°S): Insights from zircon U-Pb geochronology (13 citations)
  • Chronology of deposition and unconformity development across the Cretaceous–Paleogene boundary, Magallanes-Austral Basin, Patagonian Andes (12 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Plate tectonics
  • Paleontology

Brian K. Horton spends much of his time researching Provenance, Paleontology, Foreland basin, Geochemistry and Cretaceous. His Paleontology study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Drainage basin. The concepts of his Foreland basin study are interwoven with issues in Sedimentary rock, Sedimentary depositional environment and Neogene.

His studies deal with areas such as Sediment and Quaternary as well as Geochemistry. His Paleogene research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Thermal subsidence, Permian, Inversion and Zircon. His Cenozoic study is related to the wider topic of Structural basin.
