Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Subduction
  • Plate tectonics
  • Paleontology

Kelin Wang mainly investigates Subduction, Seismology, Mantle, Forearc and Seafloor spreading. His research integrates issues of Continental shelf and Lithosphere in his study of Subduction. His Seismology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Slip, Geodetic datum and Transition zone.

He studied Mantle and Earthquake rupture that intersect with Fault friction. Kelin Wang has researched Forearc in several fields, including Structural basin, Block, Magnitude, Seismic hazard and Shear zone. His study focuses on the intersection of Mantle wedge and fields such as Slab with connections in the field of Petrology, Slab suction, Craton and Thermal.

His most cited work include:

  • A silent slip event on the deeper Cascadia subduction interface. (687 citations)
  • Seismic Consequences of Warm Versus Cool Subduction Metamorphism: Examples from Southwest and Northeast Japan (594 citations)
  • Thermal constraints on the zone of major thrust earthquake failure: The Cascadia Subduction Zone (441 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Seismology, Subduction, Slip, Mantle and Episodic tremor and slip. He interconnects Seafloor spreading, Viscoelasticity and Deformation in the investigation of issues within Seismology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Rheology and Petrology in addition to Subduction.

His Slip research includes elements of Submarine pipeline and Moment magnitude scale. In Mantle, Kelin Wang works on issues like Slab, which are connected to Slab suction. His work deals with themes such as Induced seismicity, Interplate earthquake and Borehole, which intersect with Episodic tremor and slip.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (94.67%)
  • Subduction (83.61%)
  • Slip (34.02%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Seismology (94.67%)
  • Subduction (83.61%)
  • Deformation (13.11%)

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

Kelin Wang focuses on Seismology, Subduction, Deformation, Viscoelasticity and Seafloor spreading. His Seismology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Slip and Stress. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Rheology, Mantle and Tectonophysics.

His biological study deals with issues like Petrology, which deal with fields such as Intermediate depth, Slab and Intraplate earthquake. Kelin Wang usually deals with Viscoelasticity and limits it to topics linked to Geophysics and Ground motion. Kelin Wang has included themes like Hydrogeology, Tsunami hazard, Juan de Fuca Plate and Natural hazard in his Seafloor spreading study.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mafic High‐Pressure Rocks Are Preferentially Exhumed From Warm Subduction Settings (30 citations)
  • Mafic High‐Pressure Rocks Are Preferentially Exhumed From Warm Subduction Settings (30 citations)
  • Learning from crustal deformation associated with the M9 2011 Tohoku-oki earthquake (28 citations)

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

  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction
  • Paleontology

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Subduction, Viscoelasticity, Seafloor spreading and Deformation. His work on Forearc as part of general Seismology research is frequently linked to Hazard analysis, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Subduction research incorporates elements of Shear heating, Geochemistry, Mafic, Metamorphic petrology and Geodynamics.

The concepts of his Viscoelasticity study are interwoven with issues in Rheology and Geophysics, Mantle. His research in Seafloor spreading intersects with topics in Fault slip, Tsunami hazard, Juan de Fuca Plate, Hydrogeology and Seismic tomography. His Deformation study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Motion.
