Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock

Elton Luiz Dantas spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Craton, Archean, Zircon and Paleontology. His studies deal with areas such as Magmatism and Gondwana as well as Geochemistry. His work deals with themes such as Fold and Oceanic crust, which intersect with Craton.

His research in Archean intersects with topics in Massif and Petrology. His Zircon research includes elements of Felsic and Mantle. His work on Sedimentary rock, Rift, Siliciclastic and Glacial period as part of general Paleontology research is often related to Palynology, thus linking different fields of science.

His most cited work include:

  • High spatial resolution analysis of Pb and U isotopes for geochronology by laser ablation multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-MC-ICP-MS) (176 citations)
  • Shrimp U-Pb zircon dating and palynology of bentonitic layers from the Permian Irati Formation, Paraná Basin, Brazil (149 citations)
  • Late Neoproterozoic–Cambrian granitic magmatism in the Araçuaí orogen (Brazil), the Eastern Brazilian Pegmatite Province and related mineral resources (125 citations)

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

Elton Luiz Dantas mostly deals with Geochemistry, Zircon, Craton, Archean and Paleontology. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Gondwana and Petrology. His study looks at the intersection of Petrology and topics like Igneous rock with Mineral.

His Zircon research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Metamorphism, Basement, Magmatism, Geochronology and Gneiss. Elton Luiz Dantas interconnects Orogeny, Fold, Passive margin, Amazonian and Precambrian in the investigation of issues within Craton. His Archean research includes themes of Back-arc basin, Supercontinent, Proterozoic and Crust.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (65.89%)
  • Zircon (35.98%)
  • Craton (20.09%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (65.89%)
  • Zircon (35.98%)
  • Gondwana (14.49%)

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

Elton Luiz Dantas mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Zircon, Gondwana, Archean and Provenance. His Geochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Magmatism, Basement and Craton. His Zircon research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Nappe, Metamorphism, Rodinia and Back-arc basin.

The Gondwana study combines topics in areas such as Subduction, Supercontinent and Petrography. His Archean research incorporates themes from Sedimentary rock, Orosirian, Proterozoic and Protolith. His Provenance study combines topics in areas such as Sedimentary depositional environment, Neogene, Passive margin and Quaternary.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Arc accretion and crustal reworking from late Archean to Neoproterozoic in Northeast Brazil. (10 citations)
  • U-Pb and Lu-Hf isotope systematics on detrital zircon from the southern São Francisco Craton's Neoproterozoic passive margin: Tectonic implications (9 citations)
  • A magmatic barcode for the São Francisco Craton: Contextual in-situ SHRIMP U–Pb baddeleyite and zircon dating of the Lavras, Pará de Minas and Formiga dyke swarms and implications for Columbia and Rodinia reconstructions (8 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Zircon, Basement, Archean and Mafic. His study in Geochemistry focuses on Tonian in particular. He has included themes like Nappe, Provenance, Ultramafic rock, Metamorphism and Gondwana in his Zircon study.

His research integrates issues of Continental collision, Magmatism, Petrography, Pluton and Monazite in his study of Gondwana. His Basement study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Precambrian and Craton. His Archean research incorporates elements of Andesite, Sedimentary rock, Fold and Continental arc.
