Fellow of the Geological Society of America

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Internal medicine
  • Igneous rock

His scientific interests lie mostly in Zircon, Geochemistry, Metamorphism, Geochronology and Mineralogy. The subject of his Zircon research is within the realm of Paleontology. As part of the same scientific family, Ian S. Williams usually focuses on Geochemistry, concentrating on Petrology and intersecting with Metamorphic facies.

His Metamorphism research integrates issues from Granulite and Terrane. His work is dedicated to discovering how Geochronology, Quartz are connected with Lile and Pluton and other disciplines. His Mineralogy study incorporates themes from Partial melting and Closure temperature.

His most cited work include:

  • U-Th-Pb Geochronology by Ion Microprobe (1859 citations)
  • U‐Pb geochronology of zircons from lunar breccia 73217 using a sensitive high mass‐resolution ion microprobe (1184 citations)
  • Improved 206Pb/238U microprobe geochronology by the monitoring of a trace-element-related matrix effect; SHRIMP, ID-TIMS, ELA-ICP-MS and oxygen isotope documentation for a series of zircon standards (1118 citations)

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

Ian S. Williams mostly deals with Geochemistry, Zircon, Metamorphism, Petrology and Geochronology. His study ties his expertise on Granulite together with the subject of Geochemistry. His research in Zircon intersects with topics in Precambrian, Gneiss and Proterozoic.

His research integrates issues of Eclogite, Arunta, Metamorphic facies, Monazite and Terrane in his study of Metamorphism. In his study, Shrimp is inextricably linked to Mineralogy, which falls within the broad field of Geochronology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Craton and Continental crust.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (64.15%)
  • Zircon (60.06%)
  • Metamorphism (21.07%)

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

  • Geochemistry (64.15%)
  • Zircon (60.06%)
  • Igneous rock (15.72%)

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

Ian S. Williams mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Zircon, Igneous rock, Isotopes of oxygen and δ18O. His Zircon research is mostly focused on the topic Protolith. His research on Igneous rock also deals with topics like

  • Pluton which connect with Porphyritic and Sensitive high-resolution ion microprobe,
  • Mantle wedge which is related to area like Dolomitization, Carbonatite and Petrology.

His Isotopes of oxygen research also works with subjects such as

  • Trace element which intersects with area such as Microprobe,
  • Enamel paint that connect with fields like Environmental chemistry, Zoology, Climate variation and Molar,
  • Shrimp which intersects with area such as Sediment diagenesis and Uranium. His study looks at the relationship between Sediment diagenesis and fields such as Geochronology, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. Ian S. Williams interconnects Granulite and Gondwana in the investigation of issues within Metamorphism.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Wintertime stress, nursing, and lead exposure in Neanderthal children (24 citations)
  • Pain in people living with HIV and its association with healthcare resource use, well being and functional status. (22 citations)
  • Dynamic interplay between climate and marine biodiversity upheavals during the early Triassic Smithian -Spathian biotic crisis (21 citations)

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

  • Acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
  • Internal medicine
  • Paleontology

Ian S. Williams focuses on Zircon, Geochemistry, Crust, Isotopes of oxygen and Igneous rock. The Zircon study combines topics in areas such as Prevailing winds, Provenance, Batholith, Liman and Metamorphism. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Loess and Source rock.

His study in Isotopes of oxygen is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Geochronology and Microprobe, Analytical chemistry. As a member of one scientific family, Ian S. Williams mostly works in the field of Microprobe, focusing on Trace element and, on occasion, Mineralogy. His work deals with themes such as Mantle wedge, Protolith, Fold, Mafic and Pluton, which intersect with Igneous rock.
