2019 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)

Fellow of the Geological Society of America

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Basalt

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 most cited work include:

  • USING THERMOCHRONOLOGY TO UNDERSTAND OROGENIC EROSION (584 citations)
  • The pMELTS: A revision of MELTS for improved calculation of phase relations and major element partitioning related to partial melting of the mantle to 3 GPa (579 citations)
  • Zircon M257 ‐ a Homogeneous Natural Reference Material for the Ion Microprobe U‐Pb Analysis of Zircon (472 citations)

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

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.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (41.91%)
  • Paleontology (34.85%)
  • Thermochronology (34.02%)

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

  • Thermochronology (34.02%)
  • Geochemistry (41.91%)
  • Paleontology (34.85%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of 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.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Pulsed exhumation of interior eastern Tibet: Implications for relief generation mechanisms and the origin of high-elevation planation surfaces (45 citations)
  • Multiple episodes of fast exhumation since Cretaceous in southeast Tibet, revealed by low-temperature thermochronology (42 citations)
  • Long-term tectonothermal history of Laramide basement from zircon–He age-eU correlations (39 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Plate tectonics

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.
