Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Paleontology, Subduction, Seismology, Continental crust and Craton. His study on Paleontology is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Geomorphology. His research investigates the connection with Subduction and areas like Structural basin which intersect with concerns in Magmatism.

The concepts of his Seismology study are interwoven with issues in Fold and Cenozoic. His studies in Craton integrate themes in fields like Geochemistry, Basalt, Ophiolite and Rift. In his work, Continental margin is strongly intertwined with Suture, which is a subfield of Paleozoic.

His most cited work include:

  • Photochemistry of the atmosphere of Titan: comparison between model and observations. (822 citations)
  • Paleozoic multiple accretionary and collisional tectonics of the Chinese Tianshan orogenic collage (610 citations)
  • Paleozoic accretion and Cenozoic redeformation of the Chinese Tien Shan Range, central Asia (590 citations)

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

Mark B. Allen mostly deals with Paleontology, Geochemistry, Tectonics, Seismology and Subduction. His Paleontology study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Geomorphology. His work deals with themes such as Craton and Magmatism, which intersect with Geochemistry.

His Tectonics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Induced seismicity and Plateau. His Seismology research integrates issues from Fold and Deformation. His studies deal with areas such as Slab and Mantle, Continental crust as well as Subduction.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (31.46%)
  • Geochemistry (22.07%)
  • Tectonics (17.37%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (22.07%)
  • Subduction (16.90%)
  • Seismology (16.90%)

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

Geochemistry, Subduction, Seismology, Tectonics and Paleontology are his primary areas of study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Eclogite and Craton. His research integrates issues of Slab, Ophiolite and Crust in his study of Subduction.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Magnitude and Arc in addition to Seismology. In Tectonics, Mark B. Allen works on issues like Plateau, which are connected to Geomorphology, Elevation and Induced seismicity. He studies Paleontology, namely Fluvial.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Partitioning of oblique convergence coupled to the fault locking behavior of fold‐and‐thrust belts: Evidence from the Qilian Shan, northeastern Tibetan Plateau (49 citations)
  • Basalts and picrites from a plume-type ophiolite in the South Qilian Accretionary Belt, Qilian Orogen : accretion of a Cambrian Oceanic Plateau? (38 citations)
  • HP-UHP metamorphic belt in the East Kunlun Orogen : final closure of the Proto-Tethys Ocean and formation of the Pan-North-China Continent. (33 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Subduction, Craton, Tectonics and Seismology. His Geochemistry study incorporates themes from Coesite, Eclogite, Island arc and Mantle plume. His Subduction research incorporates themes from Metamorphic rock, Ophiolite and Crust.

Tectonics is a primary field of his research addressed under Paleontology. The Seismology study combines topics in areas such as Magnitude and Fold. His Basalt research includes elements of Mantle convection, Mantle and Archean.
