Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Geochemistry
  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt

His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Craton, Zircon, Petrology and Archean. His Geochemistry study deals with Granulite intersecting with Mafic and Massif. His Craton research includes elements of Khondalite, Metamorphism, Subduction and Basement.

His research in Zircon intersects with topics in Igneous rock, Provenance, Porphyritic, Pluton and Geochronology. His work carried out in the field of Petrology brings together such families of science as Volcanic rock, Isochron, Oceanic crust, Magma and Petrogenesis. His research integrates issues of Rift and Terrane in his study of Archean.

His most cited work include:

  • Late Archean to Paleoproterozoic evolution of the North China Craton: key issues revisited (1576 citations)
  • Archean blocks and their boundaries in the North China Craton: lithological, geochemical, structural and P–T path constraints and tectonic evolution (1308 citations)
  • Review of global 2.1-1.8 Ga orogens: implications for a pre-Rodinia supercontinent (1072 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Zircon, Craton, Petrology and Paleontology. His Geochemistry study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Subduction. His Subduction research integrates issues from Ophiolite and Earth science.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Terrane, Paleozoic, Geochronology, Gneiss and Petrogenesis in addition to Zircon. Min Sun interconnects Metamorphism, Metamorphic rock, Granulite and Archean in the investigation of issues within Craton. He combines subjects such as Massif, Igneous rock, Pluton and Volcanic rock with his study of Petrology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (72.02%)
  • Zircon (39.92%)
  • Craton (33.74%)

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

  • Geochemistry (72.02%)
  • Zircon (39.92%)
  • Subduction (15.84%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Zircon, Subduction, Paleozoic and Paleontology. His Zircon research incorporates elements of Tectonics, Craton, Crust, Permian and Devonian. His study on Craton is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Alkali feldspar.

His Subduction study incorporates themes from Petrology and Andesites. His research on Paleozoic also deals with topics like

  • Terrane which is related to area like Island arc,
  • Carboniferous together with Metamorphism and Suture,
  • Accretionary wedge that connect with fields like Accretion and Anatexis. His work on Orocline, Shear zone and Orogeny as part of general Paleontology research is frequently linked to Bending and Collision, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Late Paleozoic closure of the Ob-Zaisan Ocean along the Irtysh shear zone (NW China): Implications for arc amalgamation and oroclinal bending in the Central Asian orogenic belt (55 citations)
  • Whole-rock Nd-Hf isotopic study of I-type and peraluminous granitic rocks from the Chinese Altai: constraints on the nature of the lower crust and tectonic setting (35 citations)
  • Geochronology and geochemistry of the Yilan greenschists and amphibolites in the Heilongjiang complex, northeastern China and tectonic implications (34 citations)

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

  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt
  • Plate tectonics

Min Sun focuses on Geochemistry, Zircon, Subduction, Partial melting and Paleozoic. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Permian and Petrology. Min Sun usually deals with Petrology and limits it to topics linked to Pluton and Petrogenesis.

The various areas that Min Sun examines in his Zircon study include Crust, Ordovician, Supercontinent, Craton and Magmatism. His multidisciplinary approach integrates Craton and North china in his work. His studies in Paleozoic integrate themes in fields like Devonian and Terrane.
