Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Plate tectonics
  • Sedimentary rock

Jason R. Ali mostly deals with Paleontology, Permian, Large igneous province, Extinction event and Biogeography. Flood basalt, Cenozoic, Plate tectonics, Lithosphere and Stratotype are among the areas of Paleontology where Jason R. Ali concentrates his study. His Cenozoic research incorporates themes from Plateau and Paleogene.

The Plate tectonics study combines topics in areas such as Gondwana and Terrane. His Large igneous province research incorporates elements of Geochemistry, Basalt and Mantle plume. His work carried out in the field of Biogeography brings together such families of science as Biodiversity, Fauna and Endemism.

His most cited work include:

  • When and where did India and Asia collide (608 citations)
  • Gondwana to Asia: plate tectonics, paleogeography and the biological connectivity of the Indian sub-continent from the Middle Jurassic through latest Eocene (166-35 Ma) (366 citations)
  • Emeishan large igneous province, SW China (233 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Paleontology, Cretaceous, Paleomagnetism, Subduction and Ecology. His work on Paleontology deals in particular with Tectonics, Permian, Ophiolite, Terrane and Basalt. He has researched Tectonics in several fields, including Geomorphology and East Asia.

His Cretaceous research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cenozoic, Mesozoic, Dike, Plateau and Pillow lava. The study incorporates disciplines such as Biogeography and Paleogene in addition to Cenozoic. His work carried out in the field of Subduction brings together such families of science as Late Miocene and Lithosphere.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (63.43%)
  • Cretaceous (17.16%)
  • Paleomagnetism (17.16%)

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

  • Ecology (11.94%)
  • Paleontology (63.43%)
  • Insular biogeography (2.99%)

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

Jason R. Ali mainly investigates Ecology, Paleontology, Insular biogeography, Land bridge and Biogeography. His works in Outcrop, Plate tectonics, Basalt, Paleomagnetism and Terrane are all subjects of inquiry into Paleontology. The various areas that he examines in his Outcrop study include Tectonics, Stratigraphy, Gondwana, Permian and Mafic.

Within one scientific family, Jason R. Ali focuses on topics pertaining to Ridge under Plate tectonics, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Sedimentary rock. His Insular biogeography study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Taxonomy, Speciation and Introduced species. His Biogeography research incorporates themes from Paleogene and Ecosystem diversity.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Islands as biological substrates: classification of the biological assemblage components and the physical island types (25 citations)
  • Detrital chrome spinel evidence for a Neotethyan intra-oceanic island arc collision with India in the Paleocene (22 citations)
  • Philippine Sea Plate motion history: Eocene-Recent record from ODP Site 1201, central West Philippine Basin (16 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Plate tectonics
  • Sedimentary rock

His main research concerns Paleontology, Insular biogeography, Land bridge, Ecology and Plate tectonics. Sedimentary rock and Island arc are among the areas of Paleontology where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His Sedimentary rock research includes themes of Paleomagnetism, Provenance, Continental collision, Forearc and Ophiolite.

His studies deal with areas such as Geodynamics, Oceanography, Hotspot and Terrane as well as Insular biogeography. His Rhizoprionodon, Paleozoology, Galeocerdo and Sphyrna study in the realm of Ecology connects with subjects such as Otodus. His Plate tectonics research incorporates elements of Fault, Ridge, Basalt and Basement.
