Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Subduction
  • Seismology
  • Plate tectonics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Subduction, Mantle wedge, Mantle and Transition zone. The concepts of his Seismology study are interwoven with issues in Slab, Seismic tomography and Crust. His work on Pacific Plate, Volcanic arc and Forearc as part of general Subduction study is frequently linked to P wave, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His Mantle wedge research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Geophysics, Plate tectonics, Petrology, Underplating and Core–mantle boundary. His Mantle research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Volcanism, Plume and Oceanic crust. He works mostly in the field of Transition zone, limiting it down to concerns involving Hotspot and, occasionally, Geochemistry.

His most cited work include:

  • Tomographic imaging of P and S wave velocity structure beneath northeastern Japan (868 citations)
  • High-resolution mantle tomography of China and surrounding regions (725 citations)
  • Global tomographic images of mantle plumes and subducting slabs: insight into deep Earth dynamics (502 citations)

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

Dapeng Zhao mostly deals with Seismology, Subduction, Seismic tomography, Mantle and Crust. His Seismology research includes elements of Slab, Geophysics and Transition zone. His study in the field of Slab window, Forearc, Pacific Plate and Volcanic arc is also linked to topics like P wave.

His Seismic tomography research integrates issues from Seismic wave, Craton, Seismotectonics, Seismic anisotropy and Seismogram. His Mantle research focuses on subjects like Lithosphere, which are linked to Eurasian Plate. His research integrates issues of Fault, Tectonics, Active fault, Aftershock and Induced seismicity in his study of Crust.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (78.69%)
  • Subduction (38.50%)
  • Seismic tomography (35.84%)

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

  • Seismology (78.69%)
  • Seismic tomography (35.84%)
  • Subduction (38.50%)

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

Dapeng Zhao mostly deals with Seismology, Seismic tomography, Subduction, Mantle and Slab. Dapeng Zhao combines subjects such as Seismic anisotropy, Transition zone and Crust with his study of Seismology. His studies deal with areas such as Seismotectonics, Plateau and Geophysical imaging as well as Seismic tomography.

His Subduction study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as S-wave. His Mantle study also includes

  • Volcano together with Magmatism,
  • Intraplate earthquake together with Volcanism. His research combines Slab window and Slab.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Age of the subducting Pacific slab beneath East Asia and its geodynamic implications (115 citations)
  • Teleseismic P‐wave tomography and mantle dynamics beneath Eastern Tibet (73 citations)
  • Seismic anisotropy tomography: New insight into subduction dynamics (57 citations)

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

  • Seismology
  • Subduction
  • Plate tectonics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Subduction, Mantle, Slab and Transition zone. His work on Seismic tomography expands to the thematically related Seismology. His work carried out in the field of Subduction brings together such families of science as S-wave and Geophysics.

The various areas that he examines in his Mantle study include Volcano, Tectonics, Lithosphere and Latitude. His research in Slab intersects with topics in Hypocenter, Thermal variation and Slab window. His studies in Transition zone integrate themes in fields like Mantle convection, Intraplate earthquake, Volcanism, Petrology and Classification of discontinuities.
