Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Igneous rock
  • Mineral
  • Basalt

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Partial melting, Metamorphism, Crust and Pluton. His study in Geochemistry concentrates on Zircon, Magma, Mafic, Greenstone belt and Igneous rock. His Partial melting study deals with Biotite intersecting with Fractional crystallization, Stoichiometry and Residuum.

His studies deal with areas such as Geothermal gradient and Terrane as well as Metamorphism. As a part of the same scientific study, Gary Stevens usually deals with the Crust, concentrating on Craton and frequently concerns with Shear zone, Thrust fault and Magmatism. His research investigates the connection with Pluton and areas like Trace element which intersect with concerns in Monazite.

His most cited work include:

  • Melt production during granulite-facies anatexis: experimental data from “primitive” metasedimentary protoliths (295 citations)
  • What controls chemical variation in granitic magmas (254 citations)
  • Selective peritectic garnet entrainment as the origin of geochemical diversity in S-type granites (219 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Metamorphism, Partial melting, Greenstone belt and Magma. Gary Stevens frequently studies issues relating to Pluton and Geochemistry. His work focuses on many connections between Metamorphism and other disciplines, such as Terrane, that overlap with his field of interest in Shear zone.

His Partial melting research focuses on Biotite and how it relates to Muscovite. Gary Stevens works mostly in the field of Greenstone belt, limiting it down to topics relating to Geochronology and, in certain cases, Monazite, as a part of the same area of interest. His Magma research incorporates themes from Felsic, Igneous differentiation and Silicic.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (82.58%)
  • Metamorphism (24.24%)
  • Partial melting (21.21%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (82.58%)
  • Zircon (15.15%)
  • Craton (12.88%)

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

Geochemistry, Zircon, Craton, Magma and Terrane are his primary areas of study. His Geochemistry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cape, Suite and Pluton. His study in Zircon is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Metamorphism and Volcanic rock.

His Craton study incorporates themes from Mantle and Archean. As a member of one scientific family, Gary Stevens mostly works in the field of Magma, focusing on Batholith and, on occasion, Country rock, Isotope fractionation and Biotite. His work investigates the relationship between Terrane and topics such as Shear zone that intersect with problems in Continental crust, Lithosphere, Geodynamics and Metamorphic rock.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Conditions during the formation of granitic magmas by crustal melting - hot or cold; drenched, damp or dry? (17 citations)
  • A record of 0.5 Ga of evolution of the continental crust along the northern edge of the Kaapvaal Craton, South Africa: Consequences for the understanding of Archean geodynamic processes (12 citations)
  • Roots and nodules response differently to P starvation in the Mediterranean-type legume Virgilia divaricata (8 citations)

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

  • Mineral
  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt

His primary areas of study are Geochemistry, Phase equilibrium, Craton, Mantle and Composition. In general Geochemistry study, his work on Magma, Crust, Migmatite and Partial melting often relates to the realm of Solidus, thereby connecting several areas of interest. Among his Phase equilibrium studies, there is a synthesis of other scientific areas such as Mass transfer and Process oriented.

The various areas that Gary Stevens examines in his Craton study include Phlogopite, Incompatible element, Xenolith, Metasomatism and Kimberlite. He interconnects Eclogite, Terrane, Lithosphere, Geodynamics and Archean in the investigation of issues within Mantle.
