Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction
  • Sedimentary rock

His scientific interests lie mostly in Paleontology, Proterozoic, Geomorphology, Subduction and Orogeny. His studies in Proterozoic integrate themes in fields like Metamorphism and Craton. His Craton research includes elements of Gondwana, Geochemistry, Archean and Earth science.

His Geomorphology research incorporates elements of Suture and Tectonics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Plateau and Plate tectonics in addition to Subduction. His Orogeny study contributes to a more complete understanding of Seismology.

His most cited work include:

  • The 1800–1100 Ma tectonic evolution of Australia (231 citations)
  • Evolution of the Australian lithosphere (224 citations)
  • 1.8–1.5-Ga links between the North and South Australian Cratons and the Early–Middle Proterozoic configuration of Australia (161 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Paleontology, Geochemistry, Seismology, Orogeny and Terrane. His Paleontology study often links to related topics such as Geomorphology. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Basement, Tectonics and Craton.

His Seismology research incorporates themes from Trough and Petermann Orogeny. His Orogeny research incorporates elements of Outcrop, Fold, Overprinting, Shear zone and Inversion. The Terrane study combines topics in areas such as Suture and Accretion.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (35.86%)
  • Geochemistry (25.25%)
  • Seismology (23.74%)

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

  • Geochemistry (25.25%)
  • Paleontology (35.86%)
  • Tectonics (17.17%)

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

Peter G Betts mostly deals with Geochemistry, Paleontology, Tectonics, Craton and Orogeny. His studies in Geochemistry integrate themes in fields like Basement and Terrane. The Gondwana and Paleozoic research he does as part of his general Paleontology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Plot, Time space and Phanerozoic, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His study in Tectonics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Painting and Earth science. He has included themes like Greenstone belt, Anatexis and Geochronology in his Craton study. His Orogeny research integrates issues from Trough, Fold, Overprinting, Shear zone and Zircon.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Australo-Antarctic Columbia to Gondwana transition (71 citations)
  • Australia and Nuna (57 citations)
  • Laurentian crust in northeast Australia: Implications for the assembly of the supercontinent Nuna (35 citations)

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

  • Plate tectonics
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt

His scientific interests lie mostly in Paleontology, Geochemistry, Crust, Rift and Craton. His studies in Volcanic rock and Metamorphism are all subfields of Geochemistry research. His research in Crust intersects with topics in Supercontinent, Petrology and Analogue modelling.

His Rift research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Strain partitioning, Lithosphere and Geophysics. The concepts of his Craton study are interwoven with issues in Sinistral and dextral, Orogeny, Shear zone and Subduction. His Shear zone research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lineation, Transtension, Fold, Greenstone belt and Geomorphology.
