Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Plate tectonics

His primary areas of investigation include Paleontology, Loess, Mineralogy, Paleosol and Quaternary. His research related to Cenozoic, Paleomagnetism, Magnetostratigraphy, Pleistocene and Neogene might be considered part of Paleontology. His Loess research includes themes of Sedimentary depositional environment, Magnetic susceptibility, Aeolian processes and Geochemistry.

His Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Subduction and Craton. His Mineralogy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Superparamagnetism, Magnetite and Remanence. Rixiang Zhu interconnects Glacial period and Paleoclimatology in the investigation of issues within Quaternary.

His most cited work include:

  • Onset of Asian desertification by 22 Myr ago inferred from loess deposits in China (1184 citations)
  • Late Mesozoic volcanism in the Great Xing'an Range (NE China): Timing and implications for the dynamic setting of NE Asia (377 citations)
  • Ice-Volume Forcing of East Asian Winter Monsoon Variations in the Past 800,000 Years (350 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Paleontology, Paleomagnetism, Geochemistry, Mineralogy and Remanence. His Cretaceous, Structural basin, Magnetostratigraphy, Sedimentary rock and Cenozoic investigations are all subjects of Paleontology research. Rixiang Zhu focuses mostly in the field of Paleomagnetism, narrowing it down to topics relating to Seismology and, in certain cases, Crust.

His studies examine the connections between Geochemistry and genetics, as well as such issues in Craton, with regards to Mantle wedge. His work carried out in the field of Mineralogy brings together such families of science as Magnetite, Paleosol, Loess, Rock magnetism and Superparamagnetism. The various areas that Rixiang Zhu examines in his Loess study include Maghemite, Magnetic susceptibility, Aeolian processes and Quaternary.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (44.09%)
  • Paleomagnetism (22.04%)
  • Geochemistry (17.89%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Paleontology (44.09%)
  • Structural basin (12.14%)
  • Tectonics (7.67%)

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

Rixiang Zhu mainly investigates Paleontology, Structural basin, Tectonics, Cretaceous and Subduction. His study in Sedimentary rock, Orogeny, Magnetostratigraphy, Craton and Terrane is carried out as part of his studies in Paleontology. Rixiang Zhu has researched Structural basin in several fields, including China, East Asia and Earth science.

His work deals with themes such as Plateau, Aeolian processes and Anisotropy, which intersect with Tectonics. Rixiang Zhu has included themes like Paleomagnetism, Marine transgression, Lithostratigraphy, Chronology and Zircon in his Cretaceous study. His Subduction research includes elements of Rift, Continental drift, Lithosphere and Plate tectonics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The subduction of the west Pacific plate and the destruction of the North China Craton (53 citations)
  • Quaternary integrative stratigraphy and timescale of China (35 citations)
  • Mantle wedge exhumation beneath the Dora-Maira (U)HP dome unravelled by local earthquake tomography (Western Alps) (23 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Plate tectonics

Paleontology, Sedimentary rock, Subduction, Geochemistry and Structural basin are his primary areas of study. His study in Craton, Paleomagnetism, Cretaceous, Terrane and Orogeny is carried out as part of his Paleontology studies. His Sedimentary rock research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Plateau and Monsoon.

His Subduction study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phanerozoic, Lithosphere, Gondwana and Plate tectonics. His Basalt study in the realm of Geochemistry interacts with subjects such as Ultra-high-pressure metamorphism, Extinction event and Phase. His research investigates the connection between Structural basin and topics such as Tectonics that intersect with problems in Earth's magnetic field, Acceleration and Magnetostratigraphy.
