Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt
  • Geochemistry

Mingguo Zhai mainly investigates Geochemistry, Craton, Metamorphism, Granulite and Zircon. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Eclogite and Petrology. His Craton research includes themes of Precambrian, Rift and Archean.

Much of his study explores Metamorphism relationship to Continental crust. His Granulite research incorporates themes from Metamorphic facies, Continental collision and Terrane. His research in Zircon focuses on subjects like Geochronology, which are connected to Rodinia and Baddeleyite.

His most cited work include:

  • Accretion leading to collision and the Permian Solonker suture, Inner Mongolia, China: Termination of the central Asian orogenic belt (1271 citations)
  • The early Precambrian odyssey of the North China Craton: A synoptic overview (1005 citations)
  • The early Precambrian odyssey of the North China Craton: A synoptic overview (1005 citations)

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

Mingguo Zhai mostly deals with Geochemistry, Craton, Zircon, Metamorphism and Granulite. His studies link Petrology with Geochemistry. His study in the fields of Supercontinent under the domain of Craton overlaps with other disciplines such as North china.

His work carried out in the field of Zircon brings together such families of science as Felsic, Partial melting, Geochronology, Massif and Terrane. In his study, Greenschist is inextricably linked to Metamorphic facies, which falls within the broad field of Metamorphism. His studies examine the connections between Granulite and genetics, as well as such issues in Kyanite, with regards to Sillimanite.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (105.88%)
  • Craton (70.59%)
  • Zircon (53.68%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (105.88%)
  • Zircon (53.68%)
  • Craton (70.59%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Zircon, Craton, Metamorphism and Granulite. His Geochemistry research focuses on Archean, Metamorphic rock, Partial melting, Mafic and Protolith. His Zircon research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Orogeny, Felsic, Geochronology, Gneiss and Terrane.

His research in Craton intersects with topics in Massif, Eclogite, Proterozoic and Banded iron formation. His research investigates the connection between Metamorphism and topics such as Metamorphic facies that intersect with issues in Greenschist. The Granulite study combines topics in areas such as Kyanite and Basement.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The geology of North Korea: An overview (16 citations)
  • The geology of North Korea: An overview (16 citations)
  • Relics of a Paleoproterozoic orogen: New petrological, phase equilibria and geochronological studies on high-pressure pelitic granulites from the Pingdu-Laiyang areas, southwest of the Jiaobei terrane, North China Craton (13 citations)

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

  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt
  • Sedimentary rock

His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Zircon, Craton, Metamorphism and Granulite. Eclogite is closely connected to Metamorphic facies in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Geochemistry. As a part of the same scientific family, Mingguo Zhai mostly works in the field of Zircon, focusing on Crust and, on occasion, Subduction.

His Craton research includes elements of Felsic, Charnockite, Rift, Proterozoic and Massif. His studies deal with areas such as Metamorphic rock and Anatexis as well as Metamorphism. His work in Granulite tackles topics such as Orogeny which are related to areas like Precambrian.
