Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Sediment

Donald R. Lowe mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Archean, Greenstone belt, Paleontology and Sediment. His study in Geochemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sedimentary structures and Meteorite. His Archean study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Warrawoona Group.

His Greenstone belt research incorporates themes from Stratigraphy, Basalt, Mineralogy and Craton. The study incorporates disciplines such as Consolidation, Liquefaction and Petrology in addition to Sediment. His Petrology research includes elements of Geotechnical engineering, Sedimentation, Geomorphology, Turbidite and Turbidity current.

His most cited work include:

  • Sediment Gravity Flows: II Depositional Models with Special Reference to the Deposits of High-Density Turbidity Currents (1690 citations)
  • The influence of sediment recycling and basement composition on evolution of mudrock chemistry in the southwestern United States (754 citations)
  • Water escape structures in coarse-grained sediments (662 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Archean, Greenstone belt, Paleontology and Sedimentary rock. His Geochemistry research integrates issues from Sedimentary depositional environment and Mineralogy. His Archean study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Warrawoona Group, Earth science, Proterozoic, Silicate and Precambrian.

His Greenstone belt research focuses on subjects like Pyroclastic rock, which are linked to Clastic rock. Donald R. Lowe focuses mostly in the field of Sedimentary rock, narrowing it down to matters related to Weathering and, in some cases, Provenance. Donald R. Lowe has researched Turbidity current in several fields, including Traction, Debris, Suspended load and Submarine canyon.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (55.68%)
  • Archean (37.30%)
  • Greenstone belt (33.51%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (55.68%)
  • Greenstone belt (33.51%)
  • Archean (37.30%)

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

Donald R. Lowe mostly deals with Geochemistry, Greenstone belt, Archean, Sedimentary rock and Sedimentary depositional environment. Donald R. Lowe works mostly in the field of Geochemistry, limiting it down to concerns involving Paleoarchean and, occasionally, Syncline. His Greenstone belt research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pyroclastic rock, Felsic, Mafic, Geochronology and Zircon.

His work deals with themes such as Earth science, Solar System, Diagenesis, Seawater and Assemblage, which intersect with Archean. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Aeolian processes, Siliciclastic, Mars Exploration Program, Sedimentology and Metamorphism. His Sedimentary depositional environment study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Unconformity, Crevasse, Facies, Taranaki Basin and Subaerial.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Texture-specific Si isotope variations in Barberton Greenstone Belt cherts record low temperature fractionations in early Archean seawater (35 citations)
  • Detrital zircon geochronology of sandstones of the 3.6-3.2 Ga Barberton greenstone belt: No evidence for older continental crust (25 citations)
  • The terrestrial record of Late Heavy Bombardment (19 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Erosion

Donald R. Lowe spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Archean, Greenstone belt, Zircon and Continental crust. His studies in Geochemistry integrate themes in fields like Geomorphology, Diachronous and Silicate. Donald R. Lowe interconnects Felsic, Mafic, Volcanic rock, Ultramafic rock and Lithology in the investigation of issues within Diachronous.

His Archean study combines topics in areas such as Sedimentary rock, Paleothermometer, Diagenesis, Metamorphism and Weathering. His Sedimentary rock study is focused on Paleontology in general. His Continental crust research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Seawater and Paleoarchean.
