Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Igneous rock
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt

His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Zircon, Terrane, Petrology and Provenance. His work in Geochemistry is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Basement. Dirk Frei studied Zircon and Mineralogy that intersect with Analytical chemistry.

His Terrane research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Foreland basin, Nappe, Allochthon, Paleogene and Gondwana. His Gondwana research includes elements of Paleozoic, Proterozoic, Precambrian, Mantle plume and Kimberlite. He focuses mostly in the field of Metamorphism, narrowing it down to matters related to Greenstone belt and, in some cases, Metamorphic rock and Monazite.

His most cited work include:

  • Zircon M257 ‐ a Homogeneous Natural Reference Material for the Ion Microprobe U‐Pb Analysis of Zircon (472 citations)
  • Precise and accurate in situ U-Pb dating of zircon with high sample throughput by automated LA-SF-ICP-MS (327 citations)
  • Peneplain formation in southern Tibet predates the India-Asia collision and plateau uplift (116 citations)

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

Dirk Frei focuses on Geochemistry, Zircon, Geochronology, Provenance and Paleontology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Craton and Terrane. His Terrane research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gondwana, Continental crust and Paleozoic.

His Zircon research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Metamorphic rock, Gneiss, Petrology, Felsic and Proterozoic. His study looks at the intersection of Geochronology and topics like Orogeny with Igneous rock. His studies deal with areas such as Sedimentary rock, Structural basin, Basement and Sediment as well as Provenance.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (96.67%)
  • Zircon (62.67%)
  • Geochronology (32.00%)

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

  • Geochemistry (96.67%)
  • Zircon (62.67%)
  • Geochronology (32.00%)

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

Dirk Frei mostly deals with Geochemistry, Zircon, Geochronology, Gneiss and Metamorphism. His Geochemistry research incorporates themes from Stratigraphy and Craton. His study looks at the relationship between Craton and fields such as Archean, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His study deals with a combination of Zircon and Hedenbergite. Dirk Frei has included themes like Orogeny and Partial melting in his Gneiss study. His Metamorphism research incorporates elements of Charnockite, Crust, Orosirian, Magmatism and Diorite.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Implications of the distribution, age and origins of the granites of the Mesoproterozoic Spektakel Suite for the timing of the Namaqua Orogeny in the Bushmanland Subprovince of the Namaqua-Natal Metamorphic Province, South Africa (19 citations)
  • Implications of the distribution, age and origins of the granites of the Mesoproterozoic Spektakel Suite for the timing of the Namaqua Orogeny in the Bushmanland Subprovince of the Namaqua-Natal Metamorphic Province, South Africa (19 citations)
  • The age and country rock provenance of the Molopo Farms Complex: implications for Transvaal Supergroup correlation in southern Africa (12 citations)

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

  • Igneous rock
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt

His primary areas of study are Geochemistry, Gneiss, Geochronology, Metamorphism and Charnockite. His work deals with themes such as Geodynamics, Shear zone and Lithosphere, which intersect with Geochemistry. The Gneiss study combines topics in areas such as Orogeny, Mafic and Zircon.

His research integrates issues of Anatexis, Partial melting and Granulite in his study of Geochronology.
