Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oceanography
  • Ecology
  • Paleontology

Derek Vance spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Metamorphic rock, Metamorphism, Isotope analysis and Analytical chemistry. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Seawater and Geochemistry. He focuses mostly in the field of Seawater, narrowing it down to topics relating to Isotopes of copper and, in certain cases, Isotope geochemistry.

He combines subjects such as Sillimanite, Mineral resource classification and Tectonics with his study of Metamorphic rock. The various areas that Derek Vance examines in his Metamorphism study include Chronometry and Mineral. His Isotope analysis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Deep sea, Biogeochemical cycle, Isotopic signature and Anoxic waters.

His most cited work include:

  • The significance of monazite U–Th–Pb age data in metamorphic assemblages; a combined study of monazite and garnet chronometry (266 citations)
  • Erosion and Exhumation in the Himalaya from cosmogenic isotope inventories of river sediments (218 citations)
  • An assessment of mass discrimination in MC-ICPMS using Nd isotopes (217 citations)

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

Oceanography, Geochemistry, Seawater, Environmental chemistry and Mineralogy are his primary areas of study. While the research belongs to areas of Oceanography, Derek Vance spends his time largely on the problem of Glacial period, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Weathering and Holocene. In general Geochemistry study, his work on Metamorphic rock often relates to the realm of Anatexis, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

His work on Geotraces as part of general Seawater study is frequently linked to Scavenging, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work deals with themes such as Diatom, Zinc, Isotope fractionation and Trace metal, which intersect with Environmental chemistry. The study incorporates disciplines such as Trace element and Anoxic waters in addition to Water column.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Oceanography (33.82%)
  • Geochemistry (27.45%)
  • Seawater (24.02%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (27.45%)
  • Oceanography (33.82%)
  • Seawater (24.02%)

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

Derek Vance mainly investigates Geochemistry, Oceanography, Seawater, Environmental chemistry and Geotraces. Geochemistry is frequently linked to Earth materials in his study. His Oceanography study is mostly concerned with Biogeochemistry, Water column, Foraminifera, Sea surface temperature and Neogloboquadrina pachyderma.

His Seawater research incorporates elements of Isotopes of copper, Carbonate and Carbon cycle. His Geotraces research integrates issues from Water mass and Isotopes of zinc. The concepts of his Water mass study are interwoven with issues in Polar front and Biogeochemical cycle.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The GEOTRACES Intermediate Data Product 2017 (138 citations)
  • Coupled Mo-U abundances and isotopes in a small marine euxinic basin: Constraints on processes in euxinic basins (35 citations)
  • Physical and biogeochemical controls on the distribution of dissolved cadmium and its isotopes in the Southwest Pacific Ocean (24 citations)

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

  • Oceanography
  • Ecology
  • Paleontology

Derek Vance mostly deals with Geotraces, Oceanography, Environmental chemistry, Deep sea and Seawater. His Geotraces research focuses on subjects like Water mass, which are linked to Biogeochemical cycle, Biogeochemistry and Polar front. Derek Vance has researched Oceanography in several fields, including Mediterranean climate and Carbon dioxide.

His studies deal with areas such as Photic zone, Benthic zone and Isotopes of zinc as well as Environmental chemistry. In his research, Sedimentary rock, Sulfide, Paleontology, Geochemistry and Anoxic waters is intimately related to Isotope fractionation, which falls under the overarching field of Photic zone. His Water column research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Halocline, Authigenic and Glacial period, Ice age.
