Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt

Mark D. Schmitz spends much of his time researching Paleontology, Geochemistry, Geochronology, Zircon and Crust. Paleontology connects with themes related to Extinction event in his study. His Geochronology study combines topics in areas such as Isotope dilution, Volcanic rock, Deglaciation, Mineralogy and Glacial deposit.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Magnetostratigraphy and Cenozoic. His Crust research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Craton, Mantle, Gneiss, Metavolcanic rock and Terrane. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Lithosphere, Proterozoic and Archean.

His most cited work include:

  • The Geologic Time Scale 2012 (1347 citations)
  • Calibrating the Cryogenian. (399 citations)
  • Reassessing the uranium decay constants for geochronology using ID-TIMS U–Pb data (331 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Paleontology, Geochemistry, Zircon, Geochronology and Permian. His Geochemistry research includes themes of Petrology, Craton and Terrane. His work investigates the relationship between Craton and topics such as Mantle that intersect with problems in Lithosphere.

The Zircon study which covers Shear zone that intersects with Titanite. His research in Geochronology intersects with topics in Mineralogy and Isotope, Radiogenic nuclide. Mark D. Schmitz combines subjects such as Foreland basin, Pennsylvanian and Paleozoic with his study of Carboniferous.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (41.15%)
  • Geochemistry (38.05%)
  • Zircon (34.51%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Paleontology (41.15%)
  • Geochemistry (38.05%)
  • Geochronology (24.78%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Paleontology, Geochemistry, Geochronology, Zircon and Rift. The various areas that Mark D. Schmitz examines in his Paleontology study include Canyon and Extinction event. Mark D. Schmitz focuses mostly in the field of Geochemistry, narrowing it down to topics relating to Aulacogen and, in certain cases, Magmatism.

The concepts of his Geochronology study are interwoven with issues in Secondary ion mass spectrometry and Biostratigraphy. He has researched Zircon in several fields, including Rhyolite, Inlet, Igneous rock, Forearc and Terrane. His Rift study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Volcanism and Marinoan glaciation.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Forearc ages reveal extensive short-lived and rapid seafloor spreading following subduction initiation (54 citations)
  • Interhemispheric Radio-Astrochronological Calibration of the Time Scales from the Andean and the Tethyan Areas in the Valanginian–Hauterivian (Early Cretaceous) (15 citations)
  • Exploring the law of detrital zircon: LA-ICP-MS and CA-TIMS geochronology of Jurassic forearc strata, Cook Inlet, Alaska, USA (14 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt

Mark D. Schmitz mainly focuses on Paleontology, Geochronology, Geochemistry, Zircon and Scale. His research integrates issues of Structural basin, Trace element, Igneous rock and Section in his study of Geochronology. His Structural basin research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Glacial period, Biostratigraphy and Paleozoic.

His research brings together the fields of Orosirian and Geochemistry. His Zircon study incorporates themes from Rhyolite, Carbonate, Inlet and Chemostratigraphy. His work carried out in the field of Scale brings together such families of science as Deep time, Canyon, Geomorphology and Group.
