Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Mineral
  • Igneous rock

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Zircon, Craton, Paleontology and Metamorphic rock. Geochemistry is closely attributed to Mineralogy in his work. His Zircon research includes themes of Partial melting, Volcanic ash, Earth science and Proterozoic.

His Craton study combines topics in areas such as Laurentia, Basement, Rift and Terrane. Hartwig E. Frimmel has researched Laurentia in several fields, including Suture and Back-arc basin. The study incorporates disciplines such as Magmatism, Igneous rock and Thin section in addition to Metamorphic rock.

His most cited work include:

  • Trace element distribution in Neoproterozoic carbonates as palaeoenvironmental indicator (202 citations)
  • A connection between the Neoproterozoic Dom Feliciano (Brazil/Uruguay) and Gariep (Namibia/South Africa) orogenic belts - Evidence from a reconnaissance provenance study. (182 citations)
  • Neoproterozoic tectono-thermal evolution of the Gariep Belt and its basement, Namibia and South Africa (162 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Craton, Paleontology, Metamorphism and Zircon. His Geochemistry study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hydrothermal circulation and Terrane. His Craton study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Structural basin, Tonian, Provenance and Mafic.

His research integrates issues of Orogeny, Gneiss, Siliciclastic and Continental margin in his study of Metamorphism. The Zircon study which covers Crust that intersects with Continental arc. His Pyrite research focuses on Trace element and how it relates to Ultramafic rock.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (98.21%)
  • Craton (37.05%)
  • Paleontology (29.02%)

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

  • Geochemistry (98.21%)
  • Pyrite (25.45%)
  • Craton (37.05%)

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

Hartwig E. Frimmel mostly deals with Geochemistry, Pyrite, Craton, Archean and Metamorphism. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Hydrothermal circulation and Magmatism. He combines subjects such as Trace element and Quartz, Fluid inclusions with his study of Pyrite.

He is interested in Rodinia, which is a branch of Craton. The various areas that he examines in his Archean study include Sedimentary rock, Orosirian and Proterozoic. In his work, Mafic, Continental margin, Gneiss and Felsic is strongly intertwined with Tonian, which is a subfield of Metamorphism.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Where does a continent prefer to break up? Some lessons from the South Atlantic margins (39 citations)
  • Where does a continent prefer to break up? Some lessons from the South Atlantic margins (39 citations)
  • The Tectonic History of the Southern Adamastor Ocean Based on a Correlation of the Kaoko and Dom Feliciano Belts (37 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Mineral
  • Basalt

Hartwig E. Frimmel mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Craton, Zircon, Foreland basin and Gondwana. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Quartz and Terrane. He has included themes like Trace element and Fluid inclusions, Meteoric water, Magmatic water in his Craton study.

His work carried out in the field of Zircon brings together such families of science as Metamorphic rock, Granulite and Ore genesis. His studies examine the connections between Foreland basin and genetics, as well as such issues in Inversion, with regards to Bushveld Igneous Complex, Placer deposit, Passive margin and Siliciclastic. His Gondwana research is included under the broader classification of Paleontology.
