Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Basalt
  • Paleontology
  • Igneous rock

His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Mantle, Continental crust, Subduction and Igneous rock. His research in Geochemistry intersects with topics in Chondrite and Meteorite. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Basalt, Lithosphere and Oceanic crust.

In his work, Geologic time scale is strongly intertwined with Proterozoic, which is a subfield of Continental crust. His Trace element research incorporates themes from Volcanic rock, Ocean island basalt, Transition zone, Isochron and Pelagic sediment. His Archean research integrates issues from Metamorphism and Petrology.

His most cited work include:

  • A new estimate for the composition of weathered young upper continental crust from alluvial sediments, Queensland, Australia (256 citations)
  • Rare earth element and yttrium variability in South East Queensland waterways (256 citations)
  • Geochemical Evolution within the Tonga–Kermadec–Lau Arc–Back-arc Systems: the Role of Varying Mantle Wedge Composition in Space and Time (213 citations)

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

Kenneth D. Collerson spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Mantle, Archean, Continental crust and Earth science. His studies in Geochemistry integrate themes in fields like Craton and Petrology. His Mantle study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Trace element, Basalt, Lithosphere and Oceanic crust.

He combines subjects such as Metamorphism, Felsic, Zircon and Ultramafic rock with his study of Archean. His Continental crust study frequently links to other fields, such as Igneous rock. While the research belongs to areas of Transition zone, Kenneth D. Collerson spends his time largely on the problem of Chondrite, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Mineralogy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (56.30%)
  • Mantle (18.52%)
  • Archean (17.04%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2006-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (56.30%)
  • Archean (17.04%)
  • Gneiss (9.63%)

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

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Archean, Gneiss, Mantle and Hadean. He frequently studies issues relating to Craton and Geochemistry. His Archean study deals with Earth science intersecting with Tectonics, Shield volcano, Vulcanian eruption and Phreatomagmatic eruption.

His work deals with themes such as Jack Hills and Early Earth, which intersect with Gneiss. His work carried out in the field of Mantle brings together such families of science as Mantle plume, Mantle wedge, Transition zone and Oceanic crust. His work in Transition zone addresses subjects such as Peridotite, which are connected to disciplines such as Silicate perovskite, Chondrite, Mineralogy and Meteorite.

Between 2006 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • U-series dating and geochemical tracing of late Quaternary travertine in co-seismic fissures (110 citations)
  • Stone adze compositions and the extent of ancient Polynesian voyaging and trade. (75 citations)
  • Origin of HIMU and EM-1 domains sampled by ocean island basalts, kimberlites and carbonatites: The role of CO2-fluxed lower mantle melting in thermochemical upwellings (69 citations)

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

  • Basalt
  • Paleontology
  • Volcano

Geochemistry, Mantle, Transition zone, Population and Oceanography are his primary areas of study. Kenneth D. Collerson integrates Geochemistry and 2008 California earthquake study in his studies. His studies deal with areas such as Mineralogy and Chondrite, Meteorite as well as Mantle.

His Transition zone research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mantle wedge, Partial melting, Mantle convection, Peridotite and Oceanic crust. Combining a variety of fields, including Population, Atoll, Prehistory, Basalt, Adze and Archipelago, are what the author presents in his essays.
