Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction
  • Artificial intelligence

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Plate tectonics, Paleontology, Seismology, Subduction and Tectonics. His work focuses on many connections between Plate tectonics and other disciplines, such as Seafloor spreading, that overlap with his field of interest in Plateau. His research in Paleontology tackles topics such as Oceanography which are related to areas like Pacific Plate.

His Seismology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mid-ocean ridge and Magnetic anomaly. R. Dietmar Müller combines subjects such as Volcanism and Igneous rock with his study of Subduction. His Tectonics study deals with Structural basin intersecting with Seabed, Sediment and National Geophysical Data Center.

His most cited work include:

  • Age, spreading rates, and spreading asymmetry of the world's ocean crust (1241 citations)
  • Digital isochrons of the world's ocean floor (727 citations)
  • New global marine gravity model from CryoSat-2 and Jason-1 reveals buried tectonic structure (639 citations)

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

Paleontology, Plate tectonics, Subduction, Tectonics and Seafloor spreading are his primary areas of study. His Paleontology research focuses on Hotspot and how it connects with Mesoplates. His work in Plate tectonics tackles topics such as Geophysics which are related to areas like Mantle plume.

His Subduction study is concerned with Seismology in general. R. Dietmar Müller studies Seismology, namely Passive margin. His work in Seafloor spreading addresses subjects such as Magnetic anomaly, which are connected to disciplines such as Seabed.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (39.51%)
  • Plate tectonics (40.49%)
  • Subduction (33.66%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Plate tectonics (40.49%)
  • Paleontology (39.51%)
  • Subduction (33.66%)

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

R. Dietmar Müller spends much of his time researching Plate tectonics, Paleontology, Subduction, Tectonics and Oceanic crust. His Plate tectonics research incorporates themes from Supercontinent cycle, Seafloor spreading, Rift and Mantle. His Paleontology research focuses on Sea level and how it connects with Ocean surface topography.

His Subduction study incorporates themes from Cretaceous, Intraplate earthquake, Magmatism, Oceanic basin and Continental margin. His study in the fields of Lithosphere, Plate reconstruction and Lineament under the domain of Tectonics overlaps with other disciplines such as Edge detection. R. Dietmar Müller has researched Oceanic crust in several fields, including Crust, Seabed and Magnetic anomaly.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A Global Plate Model Including Lithospheric Deformation Along Major Rifts and Orogens Since the Triassic (68 citations)
  • Global kinematics of tectonic plates and subduction zones since the late Paleozoic Era (45 citations)
  • Rift and plate boundary evolution across two supercontinent cycles (24 citations)

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

  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction
  • Artificial intelligence

R. Dietmar Müller focuses on Plate tectonics, Tectonics, Rift, Oceanic crust and Paleontology. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Mantle and Plate tectonics. His Mantle research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Seismology and Continental margin.

His Lithosphere, Geodynamics and Lineament study in the realm of Tectonics connects with subjects such as Edge detection. His Lithosphere research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Seismic tomography, Geodesy, Hotspot and Plate reconstruction. R. Dietmar Müller combines subjects such as Submarine pipeline, Seafloor spreading, Geophysics, Magnetic anomaly and Stratigraphy with his study of Oceanic crust.
