2017 - Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand
Nick Mortimer mainly investigates Geochemistry, Terrane, Paleontology, Batholith and Gondwana. His research integrates issues of Shear zone and Earth science in his study of Geochemistry. His Terrane study incorporates themes from Schist, Petrology, Carboniferous and Zircon.
His research in Oceanic crust and Subduction are components of Paleontology. His Gondwana study combines topics in areas such as Continental margin, Magmatism, Pluton and Cretaceous. Nick Mortimer has included themes like Volcanism and Felsic in his Cretaceous study.
His primary areas of investigation include Paleontology, Geochemistry, Terrane, Cretaceous and Subduction. His Gondwana, Tectonics, Rift, Oceanic crust and Magmatism study are his primary interests in Paleontology. His study in Gondwana is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Paleozoic, Permian, Trace element, Pluton and Accretionary wedge.
His Terrane study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Provenance, Petrology, Batholith, Basement and Zircon. His research in Cretaceous intersects with topics in Volcanism, Cenozoic, Taranaki Basin and Unconformity. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Seafloor spreading, Trough, Plate tectonics and Crust.
Nick Mortimer focuses on Paleontology, Terrane, Gondwana, Geochemistry and Subduction. His Terrane research integrates issues from Paleomagnetism, Permian and Basement. The study incorporates disciplines such as Rift and Accretionary wedge in addition to Gondwana.
His Accretionary wedge study deals with Metamorphism intersecting with Schist and Metamorphic rock. Nick Mortimer has included themes like Ophiolite, Mesozoic and Back-arc basin in his Geochemistry study. His work deals with themes such as Structural basin, Crust, Intraplate earthquake, Volcanism and Plate tectonics, which intersect with Subduction.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Paleontology, Tectonics, Cretaceous, Gondwana and Subduction. His works in Oceanic crust and Igneous rock are all subjects of inquiry into Paleontology. He has researched Cretaceous in several fields, including Volcano, Geologic record, Volcanism, Holocene and Fault.
In Gondwana, he works on issues like Paleozoic, which are connected to Submarine pipeline, Basement, Permian and Volcanic arc. In his research on the topic of Basement, Terrane is strongly related with Forearc. His Zircon study is focused on Geochemistry in general.
