Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Plate tectonics
  • Seismology
  • Subduction

Hans Thybo mostly deals with Seismology, Mantle, Crust, Lithosphere and Rift. His research combines Paleontology and Seismology. He has researched Mantle in several fields, including Low-velocity zone, Tectonics, Petrology and Transition zone.

His Crust study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Magmatic underplating, Mohorovičić discontinuity, Oceanic crust and Paleozoic. Hans Thybo combines subjects such as Reflection, Subduction, Shear zone and Continental margin with his study of Lithosphere. His studies in Rift integrate themes in fields like Sedimentary basin and Rift valley.

His most cited work include:

  • Moho and magmatic underplating in continental lithosphere (191 citations)
  • The Seismic 8° Discontinuity and Partial Melting in Continental Mantle (186 citations)
  • Crustal velocity structure across the Main Ethiopian Rift: Results from two-dimensional wide-angle seismic modelling (148 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Seismology, Crust, Lithosphere, Mantle and Paleontology. His research related to Tectonics, Rift, Seismic refraction, Suture and Baltic Shield might be considered part of Seismology. His research in Rift intersects with topics in Sedimentary basin and Graben.

In general Crust, his work in Continental crust is often linked to Baltica linking many areas of study. His Lithosphere research includes elements of Subduction, Craton, Geophysics and Terrane. His studies in Mantle integrate themes in fields like Sedimentary rock, Petrology and Transition zone.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (44.53%)
  • Crust (33.08%)
  • Lithosphere (33.33%)

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

  • Lithosphere (33.33%)
  • Mantle (31.34%)
  • Craton (18.66%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Lithosphere, Mantle, Craton, Geochemistry and Petrology. The various areas that Hans Thybo examines in his Lithosphere study include Crust, Geophysics, Tectonophysics and Terrane. His work blends Crust and Structure studies together.

His research on Mantle often connects related topics like Seismic wave. The Petrology study combines topics in areas such as Transition zone, Discontinuity, Precambrian and Seismic anisotropy, Anisotropy. His research in Baltic Shield focuses on subjects like Broadband, which are connected to Seismology.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Isopycnicity of cratonic mantle restricted to kimberlite provinces (9 citations)
  • Isopycnicity of cratonic mantle restricted to kimberlite provinces (9 citations)
  • Mantle transition zone beneath central-eastern Greenland: Possible evidence for a deep tectosphere from receiver functions (8 citations)

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

  • Plate tectonics
  • Volcano
  • Subduction

Hans Thybo spends much of his time researching Mantle, Lithosphere, Transition zone, Petrology and Craton. His studies deal with areas such as Basalt, Discontinuity and Receiver function as well as Mantle. His work carried out in the field of Transition zone brings together such families of science as Seismometer, Paleontology, Rift, Baltic Shield and Hotspot.

He combines subjects such as Sedimentary rock, Continental shelf, Devonian and East European Craton with his study of Baltic Shield. His Petrology study combines topics in areas such as Tectonics, Crust, Precambrian and Seismic anisotropy, Anisotropy. His Craton research integrates issues from Geochemistry and Magmatism.
