Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock
  • Volcano

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Basalt, Ophiolite, Oceanic crust and Pillow lava. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Oceanography and Pleistocene. His Basalt research integrates issues from Volcano, Rhyolite, Basaltic andesite, Microorganism and Mineralogy.

His research in Ophiolite intersects with topics in Obduction, Archean, Seafloor spreading, Continental margin and Zircon. Harald Furnes has included themes like Rift, Earth science and Island arc in his Oceanic crust study. The concepts of his Pillow lava study are interwoven with issues in Metamorphism, Volcanic glass and Igneous rock.

His most cited work include:

  • Ophiolite genesis and global tectonics: Geochemical and tectonic fingerprinting of ancient oceanic lithosphere (644 citations)
  • Ophiolites and Their Origins (328 citations)
  • A Younger Dryas Ash Bed in western Norway, and its possible correlations with tephra in cores from the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic (308 citations)

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

Harald Furnes spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Ophiolite, Pillow lava, Basalt and Oceanic crust. His Geochemistry study frequently links to related topics such as Petrology. The Ophiolite study combines topics in areas such as Seafloor spreading and Subduction, Island arc, Forearc.

Harald Furnes combines subjects such as Pyroclastic rock, Volcanic glass, Igneous rock and Titanite with his study of Pillow lava. His Basalt research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Basement, Basaltic andesite and Mineralogy. The various areas that Harald Furnes examines in his Oceanic crust study include Earth science, Crust, Rift, Mid-ocean ridge and Metamorphism.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (70.79%)
  • Ophiolite (39.89%)
  • Pillow lava (33.71%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (70.79%)
  • Ophiolite (39.89%)
  • Pillow lava (33.71%)

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

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Ophiolite, Pillow lava, Basalt and Greenstone belt. His Geochemistry research includes themes of Subduction, Oceanic crust and Earth science. His Ophiolite research incorporates themes from Plate tectonics, Forearc, Seafloor spreading, Petrology and Precambrian.

His Pillow lava research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Sedimentary rock, Mineralogy and Volcanic glass. He usually deals with Basalt and limits it to topics linked to Flow banding and Pyroxene. His Greenstone belt research incorporates elements of Lava and Paleoarchean.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Ophiolite genesis and global tectonics: Geochemical and tectonic fingerprinting of ancient oceanic lithosphere (644 citations)
  • Ophiolites and Their Origins (328 citations)
  • Precambrian greenstone sequences represent different ophiolite types (109 citations)

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

  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock
  • Volcano

Geochemistry, Ophiolite, Oceanic crust, Basalt and Seafloor spreading are his primary areas of study. His Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Subduction and Paleoarchean. His Ophiolite study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Forearc, Sill, Obduction and Archean.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Lithosphere and Magmatism. The Lithosphere study which covers Earth science that intersects with Tectonics, Rift and Oceanic plateau. He has researched Pillow lava in several fields, including Sedimentary rock, Pyroclastic rock and Stratigraphy.
