Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock
  • Geochemistry

Hong-Fu Zhang mainly investigates Craton, Geochemistry, Mantle, Lithosphere and Basalt. The concepts of his Craton study are interwoven with issues in Olivine, Crust, Xenolith, Petrology and Archean. Hong-Fu Zhang works mostly in the field of Xenolith, limiting it down to concerns involving Peridotite and, occasionally, Transition zone, Matrix and Analytical chemistry.

As part of his studies on Geochemistry, Hong-Fu Zhang often connects relevant subjects like Proterozoic. His research investigates the link between Lithosphere and topics such as Subduction that cross with problems in Earth science. He interconnects Andesites and Asthenosphere in the investigation of issues within Basalt.

His most cited work include:

  • Mesozoic lithosphere destruction beneath the North China Craton: evidence from major-, trace-element and Sr–Nd–Pb isotope studies of Fangcheng basalts (471 citations)
  • Integration of geology, geophysics and geochemistry: A key to understanding the North China Craton (447 citations)
  • On and Off the North China Craton: Where is the Archaean Keel? (387 citations)

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

Hong-Fu Zhang spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Craton, Mantle, Xenolith and Peridotite. Geochemistry is closely attributed to Petrology in his study. Hong-Fu Zhang has included themes like Crust, Lithosphere, Asthenosphere, Mafic and Archean in his Craton study.

His Archean research integrates issues from Precambrian and Continental crust. His work in Mantle addresses subjects such as Subduction, which are connected to disciplines such as Earth science. His Xenolith study combines topics in areas such as Isotopes of oxygen, Radiogenic nuclide, Phlogopite and Underplating.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (136.32%)
  • Craton (89.62%)
  • Mantle (75.47%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (136.32%)
  • Olivine (47.17%)
  • Mantle (75.47%)

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

Hong-Fu Zhang mainly investigates Geochemistry, Olivine, Mantle, Metasomatism and Xenolith. Hong-Fu Zhang combines topics linked to Craton with his work on Geochemistry. His Craton study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Websterite, Phlogopite and Archean.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Trace element, Rift and Chromite. His work deals with themes such as Spinel, Isotope fractionation and Asthenosphere, which intersect with Metasomatism. His Basalt research incorporates themes from Subduction and Oceanic crust.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Craton destruction and related resources (58 citations)
  • Coupled extremely light Ca and Fe isotopes in peridotites (45 citations)
  • Coupled extremely light Ca and Fe isotopes in peridotites (45 citations)

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

  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt
  • Volcano

Hong-Fu Zhang mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Mantle, Olivine, Craton and Metasomatism. Zircon and Precambrian are the primary areas of interest in his Geochemistry study. Hong-Fu Zhang does research in Mantle, focusing on Xenolith specifically.

His Xenolith research incorporates elements of Isotope fractionation and Phlogopite. Hong-Fu Zhang has researched Olivine in several fields, including Metamorphism and Chromite. His research investigates the connection between Craton and topics such as Igneous rock that intersect with issues in Petrography and Analytical chemistry.
