Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt

His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Proterozoic, Geochronology, Zircon and Paleontology. As part of the same scientific family, Michael A. Hamilton usually focuses on Geochemistry, concentrating on Petrology and intersecting with Pluton. His Proterozoic research integrates issues from Orogeny, Sill, Igneous rock, Craton and Archean.

His research investigates the link between Archean and topics such as Terrane that cross with problems in Clastic rock and Continental margin. His Geochronology research incorporates elements of Baddeleyite and Dharwar Craton. His Zircon study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Basement and Gneiss.

His most cited work include:

  • Monazite geochronology of UHP and HP metamorphism, deformation, and exhumation, Nordøyane, Western Gneiss Region, Norway (174 citations)
  • U-Pb Geochronology and Isotope Geochemistry of the Archean and Proterozoic Rocks of North-Central Madagascar (174 citations)
  • Paleomagnetism and U-Pb geochronology of easterly trending dykes in the Dharwar craton, India: feldspar clouding, radiating dyke swarms and the position of India at 2.37 Ga (147 citations)

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

Geochemistry, Zircon, Geochronology, Paleontology and Craton are his primary areas of study. The concepts of his Geochemistry study are interwoven with issues in Proterozoic and Terrane. His research investigates the connection between Terrane and topics such as Volcanic rock that intersect with issues in Igneous rock.

His work carried out in the field of Zircon brings together such families of science as Felsic, Basement, Pluton, Precambrian and Gneiss. His Geochronology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Paleomagnetism and Dharwar Craton. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Magmatism, Large igneous province, Laurentia and Baddeleyite.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (70.37%)
  • Zircon (33.33%)
  • Geochronology (24.07%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (70.37%)
  • Craton (24.07%)
  • Mafic (18.52%)

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

Michael A. Hamilton mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Craton, Mafic, Paleontology and Large igneous province. The study incorporates disciplines such as Rift and Magmatism in addition to Geochemistry. His Craton study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Igneous rock, Laurentia, Baddeleyite, Geochronology and Archean.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Paleomagnetism and Terrane. His research in Geochronology intersects with topics in Dike and Riphean. His work on Precambrian, Glacial period, Rodinia and Permian as part of general Paleontology research is frequently linked to Swarm behaviour, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Long-lived connection between southern Siberia and northern Laurentia in the Proterozoic (128 citations)
  • Emplacement ages of Paleoproterozoic mafic dyke swarms in eastern Dharwar craton, India: Implications for paleoreconstructions and support for a ∼30° change in dyke trends from south to north (30 citations)
  • The 1501 Ma Kuonamka Large Igneous Province of northern Siberia: U-Pb geochronology, geochemistry, and links with coeval magmatism on other crustal blocks (26 citations)

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

  • Igneous rock
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt

Michael A. Hamilton focuses on Geochemistry, Craton, Laurentia, Geochronology and Mafic. His study in Baddeleyite, Igneous rock, Sill and Zircon is done as part of Geochemistry. In his study, Shield is strongly linked to Sedimentary depositional environment, which falls under the umbrella field of Zircon.

His research ties Archean and Craton together. The concepts of his Laurentia study are interwoven with issues in Paleomagnetism, Large igneous province and Terrane. The study incorporates disciplines such as Dike, Batholith, Riphean and Dharwar Craton in addition to Geochronology.
