Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt
  • Paleontology

Richard E. Ernst mainly investigates Geochemistry, Mantle plume, Paleontology, Igneous rock and Mafic. He interconnects Magmatism, Large igneous province and Craton in the investigation of issues within Geochemistry. Richard E. Ernst focuses mostly in the field of Craton, narrowing it down to topics relating to Laurentia and, in certain cases, Precambrian and Proterozoic.

His Mantle plume research includes themes of Flood basalt, Geophysics, Magma chamber, Magma and Dike. His Igneous rock research incorporates elements of Phanerozoic and Mantle. His work deals with themes such as Rift and Archean, which intersect with Mafic.

His most cited work include:

  • Assembly, configuration, and break-up history of Rodinia: A synthesis (2034 citations)
  • Revised definition of Large Igneous Provinces (LIPs) (498 citations)
  • Large Igneous Provinces (384 citations)

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

Richard E. Ernst mostly deals with Geochemistry, Mafic, Craton, Igneous rock and Large igneous province. His studies deal with areas such as Flood basalt, Mantle plume and Magmatism as well as Geochemistry. His Mafic research includes elements of Zircon, Rift, Ultramafic rock and Geochronology.

His studies in Craton integrate themes in fields like Precambrian, Proterozoic and Archean. The Igneous rock study combines topics in areas such as Layered intrusion, Earth science and Silicic. His Large igneous province research also works with subjects such as

  • Laurentia that intertwine with fields like Baltica,
  • Sill which is related to area like Dike.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (84.60%)
  • Mafic (51.70%)
  • Craton (52.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (84.60%)
  • Mafic (51.70%)
  • Igneous rock (36.81%)

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

Richard E. Ernst spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Mafic, Igneous rock, Craton and Large igneous province. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mantle plume, Rift and Magmatism. In his study, Supergroup is inextricably linked to Baddeleyite, which falls within the broad field of Mafic.

His Igneous rock research is under the purview of Paleontology. The various areas that he examines in his Craton study include Ultramafic rock and Archean. His research in Large igneous province intersects with topics in Orogeny, Laurentia and Magma.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Age correlation of Large Igneous Provinces with Devonian biotic crises (17 citations)
  • Age correlation of Large Igneous Provinces with Devonian biotic crises (17 citations)
  • Coupled supercontinent–mantle plume events evidenced by oceanic plume record (13 citations)

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

  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt
  • Volcano

His scientific interests lie mostly in Large igneous province, Geochemistry, Paleontology, Craton and Igneous rock. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Geologic time scale, Laurentia and Earth science. Richard E. Ernst has researched Geochemistry in several fields, including Mercury and Permian.

His study in the fields of Baltica and Supercontinent under the domain of Paleontology overlaps with other disciplines such as Plume. The study incorporates disciplines such as Basalt and Petrogenesis in addition to Craton. His research in Igneous rock tackles topics such as Flood basalt which are related to areas like Baddeleyite, Ice age, Supergroup and Mantle plume.
