Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Volcano
  • Plate tectonics
  • Basalt

Rift, Seismology, Magma, Plate tectonics and Crust are his primary areas of study. His study in Rift is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Dike, Seafloor spreading, Lithosphere, Magmatism and Induced seismicity. His work in Magmatism addresses subjects such as Petrology, which are connected to disciplines such as Mantle, Rift zone and Geophysics.

Seismology is often connected to Paleontology in his work. His research integrates issues of Volcano and Mid-ocean ridge in his study of Plate tectonics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Rift valley and Volcanism in addition to Crust.

His most cited work include:

  • Magma-maintained rift segmentation at continental rupture in the 2005 Afar dyking episode (424 citations)
  • Magma-assisted rifting in Ethiopia (262 citations)
  • Geophysical constraints on the dynamics of spreading centres from rifting episodes on land (172 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Rift, Seismology, Induced seismicity, Paleontology and Volcano. Derek Keir combines subjects such as Petrology, Magma and Crust with his study of Rift. His Crust research incorporates elements of Geomorphology, Receiver function and Mantle.

Derek Keir interconnects Dike and Seafloor spreading in the investigation of issues within Seismology. His study in Seafloor spreading is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Volcanic cone, Mid-ocean ridge and Oceanic basin. When carried out as part of a general Paleontology research project, his work on Lithosphere, Continental margin and Rift zone is frequently linked to work in Margin and Plateau, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Rift (90.98%)
  • Seismology (68.03%)
  • Induced seismicity (38.93%)

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

  • Rift (90.98%)
  • Tectonics (32.79%)
  • Seismology (68.03%)

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

His main research concerns Rift, Tectonics, Seismology, Induced seismicity and Paleontology. His Rift research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Volcano, Geochemistry and Lithosphere. His Lithosphere research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Detachment fault and Mantle.

Derek Keir has researched Tectonics in several fields, including Brittleness and Crust. His work in the fields of East African Rift and Fault slip overlaps with other areas such as Numerical modeling and Mechanism. His studies in Induced seismicity integrate themes in fields like Plate tectonics and Geodesy.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A review of tectonic models for the rifted margin of Afar: Implications for continental break-up and passive margin formation (7 citations)
  • A review of tectonic models for the rifted margin of Afar: Implications for continental break-up and passive margin formation (7 citations)
  • Mechanism for Deep Crustal Seismicity: Insight From Modeling of Deformation Processes at the Main Ethiopian Rift (5 citations)

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

  • Volcano
  • Plate tectonics
  • Basalt

Derek Keir focuses on Rift, Seismology, Induced seismicity, Tectonics and Margin. His Seismology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Strain rate and Deformation. His Induced seismicity research includes themes of Crust and Geodesy.

His Graben and Passive margin investigations are all subjects of Tectonics research. His Graben research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Slip, Fault and East African Rift. His study on Detachment fault and Lithosphere is often connected to East africa and Plateau as part of broader study in Paleontology.
