Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Zircon, Archean, Craton and Terrane. His studies deal with areas such as Orogeny, Petrology and Proterozoic as well as Geochemistry. His Proterozoic research incorporates elements of Rift and Crust.

His studies in Zircon integrate themes in fields like Trace element and Geochronology. His Archean research integrates issues from Continental crust, Mantle and Yilgarn Craton. He has included themes like Nappe, Dalradian, Basement and Baltica in his Terrane study.

His most cited work include:

  • Strategies towards statistically robust interpretations of in situ U–Pb zircon geochronology (193 citations)
  • Strategies towards statistically robust interpretations of in situ U–Pb zircon geochronology (193 citations)
  • Zircon Th/U ratios in magmatic environs (193 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Zircon, Archean, Paleontology and Geochronology. His Geochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Craton and Terrane. As a part of the same scientific study, Christopher L. Kirkland usually deals with the Craton, concentrating on Orogeny and frequently concerns with Nappe and Schist.

His Zircon research includes themes of Subduction, Metamorphic rock, Igneous rock, Provenance and Basement. His Archean research focuses on Yilgarn Craton and how it relates to Petrology. His Geochronology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Shear zone, Monazite and Titanite.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (91.03%)
  • Zircon (74.04%)
  • Archean (37.82%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (91.03%)
  • Zircon (74.04%)
  • Geochronology (24.36%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Zircon, Geochronology, Craton and Crust. His work on Geochemistry is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Terrane. He has researched Zircon in several fields, including Provenance, Detritus, Mantle, Continental crust and Metamorphism.

His Geochronology research includes elements of Orogeny, Quaternary and Monazite. Christopher L. Kirkland combines subjects such as Secondary ion mass spectrometry and Permian with his study of Craton. The study incorporates disciplines such as Tectonics and Lithosphere in addition to Crust.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Strategies towards robust interpretations of in situ zircon Lu–Hf isotope analyses (22 citations)
  • Mesoarchean partial melting of mafic crust and tonalite production during high-T–low-P stagnant tectonism, Akia Terrane, West Greenland (13 citations)
  • Precise radiometric age establishes Yarrabubba, Western Australia, as Earth’s oldest recognised meteorite impact structure (12 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock

Zircon, Geochemistry, Archean, Geochronology and Paleontology are his primary areas of study. His study in the fields of Titanite under the domain of Zircon overlaps with other disciplines such as Impact structure. His research investigates the connection between Geochemistry and topics such as Terrane that intersect with problems in Gneiss.

The concepts of his Geochronology study are interwoven with issues in Quaternary, Megacryst and Closure temperature. His Metamorphism course of study focuses on Mafic and Norite and Petrogenesis. His research in Rodinia intersects with topics in Foreland basin, Orogeny, Baltica, Passive margin and Supercontinent.
