Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Tectonics
  • Plate tectonics

Hemin Koyi mainly investigates Petrology, Décollement, Seismology, Geomorphology and Diapir. His Décollement research also works with subjects such as

  • Wedge, which have a strong connection to Strain partitioning and Geotechnical engineering,
  • Thrust fault which connect with Zagros fold and thrust belt,
  • Fold and thrust belt together with Stratigraphy, Reflection and Analogue modelling. His Seismology research incorporates themes from Fold, Transition zone and Mantle.

He usually deals with Geomorphology and limits it to topics linked to Tectonics and Plateau. His Diapir research integrates issues from Syncline, Overburden, Anticline, Phanerozoic and Erosion. Hemin Koyi works mostly in the field of Basement, limiting it down to topics relating to Sedimentary rock and, in certain cases, Foreland basin, as a part of the same area of interest.

His most cited work include:

  • Progressive unconformities within an evolving foreland fold–thrust belt, Zagros Mountains (249 citations)
  • Modeling of thrust fronts above ductile and frictional detachments: Application to structures in the Salt Range and Potwar Plateau, Pakistan (220 citations)
  • Effect of spatial distribution of Hormuz salt on deformation style in the Zagros fold and thrust belt: an analogue modelling approach (191 citations)

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

His main research concerns Petrology, Seismology, Diapir, Geotechnical engineering and Geomorphology. The concepts of his Petrology study are interwoven with issues in Basement, Tectonics and Shear zone. His work on Strike-slip tectonics, Analogue modelling, Rift and Thrust fault as part of his general Seismology study is frequently connected to Oblique case, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His studies in Diapir integrate themes in fields like Overburden, Mineralogy and Geophysics. Hemin Koyi combines subjects such as Brittleness and Deformation with his study of Geotechnical engineering. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sedimentary rock, Décollement, Foreland basin and Anticline in addition to Fold.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Petrology (25.34%)
  • Seismology (22.17%)
  • Diapir (19.91%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Seismology (22.17%)
  • Structural basin (8.14%)
  • Tectonics (14.48%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Structural basin, Tectonics, Petrology and Paleontology. His Seismology study typically links adjacent topics like Fold. His Fold research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Anticline and Foreland basin.

Hemin Koyi interconnects Geologic map, Shield and Cenozoic in the investigation of issues within Tectonics. The Petrology study combines topics in areas such as Graben, Geomorphology and Décollement. His studies deal with areas such as Salt tectonics and Diapir as well as Rift.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Benchmarking analogue models of brittle thrust wedges (29 citations)
  • Hydrothermal dolomitization of the Bekhme formation (Upper Cretaceous), Zagros Basin, Kurdistan Region of Iraq: Record of oil migration and degradation (27 citations)
  • Cenozoic tectonic model of the Bohai Bay Basin in China (17 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Tectonics
  • Plate tectonics

Hemin Koyi mainly focuses on Seismology, Structural basin, Petrology, Fold and Tectonics. His research integrates issues of Scale and Earth science in his study of Structural basin. His Petrology research focuses on Geomorphology and how it relates to Décollement.

His study in Fold is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sedimentary depositional environment and Foreland basin. His Foreland basin research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Anticline and Syncline. His Tectonics research incorporates elements of Geophysics, Crust, Shield and Magma.
