1933 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Plate tectonics
  • Tectonics
  • Sedimentary rock

His main research concerns Seismology, Tectonics, Paleontology, Fault and Plate tectonics. In general Seismology, his work in Subduction, Inversion and Strain partitioning is often linked to Caribbean region linking many areas of study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Structural basin and Oceanography.

His Paleontology study frequently involves adjacent topics like Geomorphology. His work investigates the relationship between Fault and topics such as Lineament that intersect with problems in Triple junction, Fault trace, Transpression and Fault scarp. The various areas that he examines in his Plate tectonics study include Induced seismicity, Submarine pipeline and Geodesy.

His most cited work include:

  • Development of Pull-Apart Basins (398 citations)
  • GPS geodetic constraints on Caribbean-North America plate motion (266 citations)
  • Tectonics of strike-slip restraining and releasing bends (234 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Paleontology, Seismology, Tectonics, Plate tectonics and Subduction. His Paleontology study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Geomorphology. His study in Fault, Strike-slip tectonics, Tectonophysics, Active fault and Island arc falls within the category of Seismology.

His research in Fault tackles topics such as Neogene which are related to areas like Inversion. His research integrates issues of Subsidence, Oceanography, Submarine pipeline and Crust in his study of Tectonics. His work on North American Plate as part of general Plate tectonics research is frequently linked to Caribbean region, bridging the gap between disciplines.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (48.31%)
  • Seismology (47.46%)
  • Tectonics (27.12%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Paleontology (48.31%)
  • Seismology (47.46%)
  • Tectonics (27.12%)

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

Paul Mann spends much of his time researching Paleontology, Seismology, Tectonics, Tectonophysics and Geomorphology. In the subject of general Seismology, his work in Subduction and Thrust fault is often linked to Clockwise, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His work is dedicated to discovering how Thrust fault, Induced seismicity are connected with Fault and other disciplines.

Paul Mann usually deals with Tectonics and limits it to topics linked to Subsidence and Terrane and Gravity modeling. His study in Structural basin is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sedimentary rock and Petroleum. His studies in Cretaceous integrate themes in fields like South American Plate, Plate tectonics and Cenozoic.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Chapter 14: Cenozoic Tectonostratigraphic Evolution of the Lower Magdalena Basin, Colombia: An Example of an Under- to Overfilled Forearc Basin (64 citations)
  • Gravity and magnetic constraints on the Jurassic opening of the oceanic Gulf of Mexico and the location and tectonic history of the Western Main transform fault along the eastern continental margin of Mexico (31 citations)
  • Chapter 10: Earthquake, Tomographic, Seismic Reflection, and Gravity Evidence for a Shallowly Dipping Subduction Zone beneath the Caribbean Margin of Northwestern Colombia (17 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Plate tectonics
  • Tectonics

Paul Mann mainly investigates Paleontology, Seismology, Tectonics, Cretaceous and Cenozoic. His Paleontology research includes themes of Gravity anomaly and Geomorphology. His work on Passive margin, Fault, Strike-slip tectonics and Thrust fault as part of his general Seismology study is frequently connected to Clockwise, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.

His Cretaceous research integrates issues from South American Plate and Plate tectonics. His work in Cenozoic addresses issues such as Late Miocene, which are connected to fields such as Subduction, Volcanic arc, Forearc, Accretion and Prism. His Transform fault research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Sedimentary rock and Structural basin.
