Francis A. Macdonald mostly deals with Paleontology, Snowball Earth, Glacial period, Proterozoic and Sturtian glaciation. His work is connected to Geochronology, Ediacaran biota, Authigenic and Sedimentary depositional environment, as a part of Paleontology. His Snowball Earth research integrates issues from Supercontinent and Large igneous province.
The Glacial period study combines topics in areas such as Terrane and Diamictite. His study in Proterozoic is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sedimentary rock, Total organic carbon and Anoxic waters. His Sturtian glaciation research includes themes of Ecology, Test and Laurentia.
Francis A. Macdonald spends much of his time researching Paleontology, Geochemistry, Glacial period, Snowball Earth and Laurentia. His Geochronology, Diamictite, Terrane, Group and Paleozoic investigations are all subjects of Paleontology research. In his study, Archean is inextricably linked to Proterozoic, which falls within the broad field of Geochemistry.
His Glacial period research incorporates elements of Unconformity, Foraminifera, Facies, Ice sheet and Sedimentary depositional environment. His Snowball Earth study incorporates themes from Dolostone, Earth science and Marinoan glaciation. His work investigates the relationship between Laurentia and topics such as Rodinia that intersect with problems in Paleomagnetism.
Paleontology, Geochemistry, Rift, Laurentia and Snowball Earth are his primary areas of study. By researching both Paleontology and Breakup, Francis A. Macdonald produces research that crosses academic boundaries. His Diagenesis, Sedimentary rock, Volcano and Precambrian study in the realm of Geochemistry connects with subjects such as Isotopes of carbon.
His Precambrian research focuses on Diachronous and how it relates to Sturtian glaciation and Unconformity. He connects Snowball Earth with Condensation in his study. His Terrane course of study focuses on Craton and Basement.
His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Paleontology, Snowball Earth, Diagenesis and Precambrian. His Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Basement, Sturtian glaciation and Batholith. Francis A. Macdonald performs multidisciplinary study on Paleontology and Path in his works.
His research in Snowball Earth intersects with topics in Sedimentary rock, Unconformity, Diachronous and Geochronology. The various areas that Francis A. Macdonald examines in his Diagenesis study include Carbonate rock, Dolomite, Petrography and Dolomitization. His Precambrian research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Seawater, Stage, Isotopes of oxygen and Archean.
