2019 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
Fellow of the Geological Society of America
His scientific interests lie mostly in Zircon, Geochemistry, Thermochronology, Mineralogy and Paleontology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Provenance, Radiation damage, Geomorphology and Geochronology in addition to Zircon. The various areas that he examines in his Geomorphology study include Plateau, Tectonics, Fission track dating and Transect.
Geochemistry is closely attributed to Biotite in his work. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Metamorphic rock and Thermochronology. His studies in Mineralogy integrate themes in fields like Chronometry, Closure temperature and Analytical chemistry.
His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Paleontology, Thermochronology, Zircon and Geomorphology. His study in Geochemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Hematite and Erosion. His research ties Plateau and Paleontology together.
His work carried out in the field of Thermochronology brings together such families of science as Bedrock, Late Miocene, Subduction and Terrane. His research in Zircon intersects with topics in Metamorphic rock, Mineralogy, Provenance and Geochronology. He has included themes like Analytical chemistry and Radiogenic nuclide in his Mineralogy study.
His primary areas of study are Thermochronology, Geochemistry, Paleontology, Zircon and Hematite. His work deals with themes such as Foreland basin, Glacial period, Erosion and Pleistocene, which intersect with Thermochronology. His Erosion study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Geothermal gradient and Cenozoic.
His work on Apatite and Continental crust as part of his general Geochemistry study is frequently connected to Interpretation, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His study in the fields of Tectonics, Fission track dating and Late Miocene under the domain of Paleontology overlaps with other disciplines such as Geon. His Zircon research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Rodinia, Craton, Mineralogy, Geochronology and Radiation damage.
Peter W. Reiners mainly investigates Geochemistry, Thermochronology, Zircon, Paleontology and Fission track dating. His Geochronology study in the realm of Geochemistry interacts with subjects such as Interpretation. Peter W. Reiners has researched Thermochronology in several fields, including Foreland basin, Rodinia, Molecular physics and Radiation damage.
Peter W. Reiners interconnects Hematite and Plate tectonics in the investigation of issues within Zircon. His Paleontology study incorporates themes from Plateau and Archaeology. In Fission track dating, he works on issues like Cretaceous, which are connected to Tectonics, Cenozoic, Transect, Granitic rock and Sedimentary depositional environment.
