Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Basalt
  • Volcano
  • Igneous rock

James B. Gill mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Basalt, Island arc, Volcanic rock and Mantle. His Geochemistry research includes elements of Adakite and Oceanic crust. The concepts of his Adakite study are interwoven with issues in Basaltic andesite and Magma chamber, Magma.

The various areas that James B. Gill examines in his Island arc study include Lau Basin, Rift and Olivine. His Volcanic rock study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Subduction and Igneous rock. In his study, Ocean island basalt and Amphibole is inextricably linked to Trace element, which falls within the broad field of Mantle.

His most cited work include:

  • Orogenic Andesites and Plate Tectonics (2605 citations)
  • Rare earth elements and the island arc tholeiitic series (400 citations)
  • Isotopic and paleomagnetic constraints on the Mesozoic tectonic evolution of south China (379 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Geochemistry, Subduction, Basalt, Mantle and Volcanic rock. His Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Rift and Island arc. The study incorporates disciplines such as Slab and Petrology in addition to Subduction.

His Basalt research integrates issues from Lava, Magma and Crust. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Trace element and Tectonics. James B. Gill interconnects Lau Basin and Igneous rock in the investigation of issues within Volcanic rock.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (63.59%)
  • Subduction (30.98%)
  • Basalt (28.26%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (63.59%)
  • Subduction (30.98%)
  • Paleontology (9.78%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Subduction, Paleontology, Mantle and Basalt. His studies in Geochemistry integrate themes in fields like Structural basin, Submarine and Hotspot. His research integrates issues of Transition zone, Tectonophysics, Slab, Petrology and Seamount in his study of Subduction.

His study in Mantle is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Mantle convection and Mantle wedge. The study incorporates disciplines such as Lava and Crust in addition to Basalt. His Stage research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Andesite and Pacific Plate.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Origin of geochemical mantle components: Role of subduction filter (31 citations)
  • U-series and 40Ar/39Ar ages of Holocene volcanic rocks at Changbaishan volcano, China (22 citations)
  • The missing half of the subduction factory: shipboard results from the Izu rear arc, IODP Expedition 350 (17 citations)

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

  • Basalt
  • Volcano
  • Igneous rock

James B. Gill spends much of his time researching Subduction, Geochemistry, Mantle, Volcano and Paleontology. James B. Gill combines subjects such as Slab and Basalt with his study of Subduction. His work deals with themes such as Crust, Lava, Mafic, Oceanic crust and Volcanic arc, which intersect with Basalt.

His Volcano research includes elements of Earth science and Terrigenous sediment. His work is dedicated to discovering how Paleontology, Front are connected with Island arc and Geophysics and other disciplines. His Island arc research integrates issues from Pyroclastic rock, Igneous rock, Volcanism, Continental crust and Subaerial.
