2022 - Research.com Earth Science in South Africa Leader Award
GSA Honorary Fellow Award, The Geological Society of America
Geochemistry, Archean, Paleontology, Greenstone belt and Gondwana are his primary areas of study. His studies in Geochemistry integrate themes in fields like Ophiolite and Waves and shallow water. He interconnects Craton, Plate tectonics, Bacteria, Basalt and Pillow lava in the investigation of issues within Archean.
His Craton research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Transtension, Subduction, Earth science and Terrane. His Greenstone belt research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Isotopes of oxygen, Hydrothermal circulation, Mafic and Volcanic rock. His Gondwana research incorporates elements of Shear zone and Mineralogy.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Paleontology, Archean, Craton and Greenstone belt. His study looks at the intersection of Geochemistry and topics like Subduction with Seafloor spreading. Maarten J. de Wit has researched Archean in several fields, including Earth science, Plate tectonics, Basalt, Petrology and Precambrian.
In his study, Terrane, Continental margin and Back-arc basin is strongly linked to Continental crust, which falls under the umbrella field of Earth science. His work in Craton covers topics such as Lithosphere which are related to areas like Obduction. The study incorporates disciplines such as Volcanic rock, Lava, Ultramafic rock, Mafic and Pilbara Craton in addition to Greenstone belt.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Paleontology, Geochemistry, Structural basin, Gondwana and Archean. Maarten J. de Wit is interested in Pillow lava, which is a branch of Geochemistry. His Structural basin research includes elements of Cape, Fold and Resource.
His research integrates issues of Epeirogenic movement, Cretaceous, Total organic carbon, Chronostratigraphy and Supercontinent in his study of Gondwana. Greenstone belt is the focus of his Archean research. He combines subjects such as Crust and Paleoarchean with his study of Greenstone belt.
Maarten J. de Wit mostly deals with Paleontology, Gondwana, Geochemistry, Precambrian and Structural basin. Many of his research projects under Paleontology are closely connected to Line with Line, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His Gondwana study also includes
He has included themes like Geodynamics, Plate tectonics and Paleoarchean in his Geochemistry study. Many of his studies on Precambrian apply to Archean as well. Maarten J. de Wit studies Archean, namely Greenstone belt.
