Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Oxygen
  • Hydrogen
  • Thermodynamics

His primary areas of study are Mineralogy, Mantle, Transition zone, Analytical chemistry and Thermodynamics. His Mineralogy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Oxygen and Silicate. His Mantle research integrates issues from Stishovite and Solidus.

Eiji Ohtani interconnects Petrology and Subduction, Mantle wedge in the investigation of issues within Transition zone. His Analytical chemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Crystallography, Post-perovskite, Synchrotron radiation, Phase boundary and Silicate perovskite. His Thermodynamics research integrates issues from Periclase, Albite, Powder diffraction and Aluminosilicate.

His most cited work include:

  • Water transport into the deep mantle and formation of a hydrous transition zone (274 citations)
  • Stagnant slab : A review (241 citations)
  • The Phase Boundary Between α- and β-Mg2SiO4 Determined by in Situ X-ray Observation (197 citations)

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

Eiji Ohtani focuses on Mineralogy, Analytical chemistry, Mantle, Geochemistry and Thermodynamics. Eiji Ohtani has researched Mineralogy in several fields, including Chondrite, Silicate and Stishovite. His work deals with themes such as Hydrogen, Crystallography, X-ray, Phase and Diamond anvil cell, which intersect with Analytical chemistry.

His Crystallography research incorporates elements of X-ray crystallography and Diffraction. His Mantle research includes themes of Subduction, Petrology and Transition zone. The concepts of his Transition zone study are interwoven with issues in Slab and Mantle wedge.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mineralogy (37.13%)
  • Analytical chemistry (27.60%)
  • Mantle (25.04%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Mineralogy (37.13%)
  • Geochemistry (20.63%)
  • Analytical chemistry (27.60%)

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

His main research concerns Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Analytical chemistry, Mantle and Meteorite. His study in Mineralogy focuses on Majorite in particular. His studies examine the connections between Geochemistry and genetics, as well as such issues in Chondrite, with regards to Sulfide.

His studies in Analytical chemistry integrate themes in fields like Diamond anvil cell, Hydrogen and Phase. His study explores the link between Mantle and topics such as Transition zone that cross with problems in Petrology. In his study, Thermodynamics is strongly linked to Liquidus, which falls under the umbrella field of Silicate.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Composition of primary kimberlite melt in a garnet lherzolite mantle source: constraints from melting phase relations in anhydrous Udachnaya-East kimberlite with variable CO 2 content at 6.5 GPa (28 citations)
  • Composition of primary kimberlite melt in a garnet lherzolite mantle source: constraints from melting phase relations in anhydrous Udachnaya-East kimberlite with variable CO 2 content at 6.5 GPa (28 citations)
  • Diamond formation in the deep lower mantle: a high-pressure reaction of MgCO 3 and SiO 2 (27 citations)
