Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Geochemistry
  • Basalt
  • Mineral

Geochemistry, Craton, Zircon, Petrology and Metamorphism are his primary areas of study. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Supercontinent, Granulite and Terrane. His work carried out in the field of Craton brings together such families of science as Subduction, Archean and Continental crust, Crust.

M. Santosh has included themes like Basalt, Partial melting, Gondwana and Geochronology in his Zircon study. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Petrology, Forearc is strongly linked to Ophiolite. His studies deal with areas such as Gneiss, Metamorphic facies, Continental collision and Charnockite as well as Metamorphism.

His most cited work include:

  • The early Precambrian odyssey of the North China Craton: A synoptic overview (1005 citations)
  • Configuration of Columbia, a Mesoproterozoic Supercontinent (943 citations)
  • Assembling North China Craton within the Columbia supercontinent: The role of double-sided subduction (616 citations)

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

M. Santosh mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Zircon, Craton, Petrology and Metamorphism. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Subduction and Granulite. His Zircon research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Felsic, Supercontinent, Magmatism and Terrane.

The concepts of his Craton study are interwoven with issues in Mantle, Continental crust, Crust, Precambrian and Archean. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Diorite, Basalt, Gabbro and Volcanic rock. His Metamorphism research incorporates elements of Metamorphic rock, Gneiss and Metamorphic facies.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (148.60%)
  • Zircon (80.92%)
  • Craton (56.76%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (148.60%)
  • Zircon (80.92%)
  • Craton (56.76%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Zircon, Craton, Subduction and Magmatism. His study in Geochronology, Archean, Metamorphism, Mafic and Felsic are all subfields of Geochemistry. His Metamorphism research also works with subjects such as

  • Granulite that connect with fields like Metamorphic rock,
  • Ophiolite which intersects with area such as Diorite and Continental arc.

He works mostly in the field of Zircon, limiting it down to topics relating to Pluton and, in certain cases, Petrogenesis. His Craton research incorporates elements of Precambrian, Gabbro and Island arc. The Subduction study combines topics in areas such as Mantle, Continental crust and Lithosphere.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A holistic model for the origin of orogenic gold deposits and its implications for exploration (56 citations)
  • A holistic model for the origin of orogenic gold deposits and its implications for exploration (56 citations)
  • A holistic model for the origin of orogenic gold deposits and its implications for exploration (56 citations)

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

  • Mineral
  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock

M. Santosh focuses on Geochemistry, Zircon, Craton, Subduction and Archean. Geochemistry is closely attributed to Lithosphere in his work. His Zircon research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ophiolite, Supercontinent, Pluton and Petrogenesis.

His Craton research includes themes of Continental margin and Pyrite. His Subduction research integrates issues from Mantle, Continental crust and Plate tectonics. His Archean study incorporates themes from Proterozoic and Dharwar Craton.
