Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Seismology
  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction

Douglas A. Wiens mainly investigates Seismology, Subduction, Lithosphere, Mantle and Geophysics. His Seismology research focuses on Fault, Intraplate earthquake, Seismic wave, Tectonics and Seismometer. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Aftershock, Induced seismicity and Depth of focus.

In general Subduction, his work in Mantle wedge is often linked to P wave linking many areas of study. The concepts of his Mantle study are interwoven with issues in Crust, Transition zone, Antarctic ice sheet and Geomorphology, Ice sheet. The Geophysics study combines topics in areas such as Rayleigh wave and Asthenosphere.

His most cited work include:

  • Age dependence of oceanic intraplate seismicity and implications for lithospheric evolution (294 citations)
  • Tomography of the source area of the 1995 Kobe earthquake: Evidence for fluids at the hypocenter? (279 citations)
  • Seismotectonics and relative plate motions in the Scotia Sea region (264 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Seismology, Subduction, Mantle, Geophysics and Lithosphere. Douglas A. Wiens has included themes like Slab and Crust in his Seismology study. His research in Subduction focuses on subjects like Aftershock, which are connected to Deep-focus earthquake.

His studies in Mantle integrate themes in fields like Mantle wedge, Transition zone, Lau Basin, Petrology and Low-velocity zone. His Geophysics research incorporates elements of Rayleigh wave and Surface wave. Douglas A. Wiens combines subjects such as Intraplate earthquake and Fault with his study of Induced seismicity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (64.10%)
  • Subduction (22.76%)
  • Mantle (21.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Seismology (64.10%)
  • Mantle (21.79%)
  • Geophysics (20.51%)

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

Douglas A. Wiens mostly deals with Seismology, Mantle, Geophysics, Rift and Lithosphere. His Seismology research focuses on Ice shelf and how it relates to Front. His studies deal with areas such as Low-velocity zone, Petrology, Mantle wedge and Crust as well as Mantle.

His Geophysics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Rayleigh wave, Surface wave and Thermal. His work in Lithosphere tackles topics such as Antarctic ice sheet which are related to areas like Post-glacial rebound. In his research on the topic of Subduction, Seismic zone is strongly related with Slab.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • S‐velocity model and inferred Moho topography beneath the Antarctic Plate from Rayleigh waves (92 citations)
  • The crustal thickness of West Antarctica (80 citations)
  • Observed rapid bedrock uplift in Amundsen Sea Embayment promotes ice-sheet stability (69 citations)

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

  • Seismology
  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Mantle, Geophysics, Lithosphere and Subduction. His research in Seismology intersects with topics in Bathymetry and Transition zone. His Mantle research integrates issues from Volcano, Crust, Rift, Surface wave and Antarctic ice sheet.

His research integrates issues of Induced seismicity, Polarization and Ice sheet in his study of Geophysics. The various areas that Douglas A. Wiens examines in his Lithosphere study include Craton and Continental crust. His Subduction research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Slab, Petrology and Upwelling.
