Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Igneous rock
  • Sedimentary rock

His main research concerns Zircon, Paleontology, Geochemistry, Gondwana and Geochronology. His studies deal with areas such as Volcano, Range, Period, Eifelian and Precambrian as well as Zircon. In the field of Paleontology, his study on Devonian, Glacial period, Sturtian glaciation and Diamictite overlaps with subjects such as Cap carbonate.

His research combines Petrology and Geochemistry. His Geochronology research incorporates themes from Gneiss and Proterozoic. His research in Gneiss intersects with topics in Felsic, Eclogite and Protolith.

His most cited work include:

  • Ages of ultrahigh pressure metamorphism and protolith orthogneisses from the eastern Dabie Shan: U/Pb zircon geochronology (366 citations)
  • The Saghand Region, Central Iran: U-Pb geochronology, petrogenesis and implications for Gondwana Tectonics (297 citations)
  • New constraints on the ages of Neoproterozoic glaciations in south China (290 citations)

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

Robert D. Tucker mostly deals with Geochemistry, Zircon, Paleontology, Metamorphism and Petrology. His Geochemistry research incorporates elements of Plutonism, Proterozoic and Terrane. His studies in Zircon integrate themes in fields like Metamorphic rock, Felsic, Mafic, Pluton and Geochronology.

His Paleontology course of study focuses on Geomorphology and Nappe, Crust and Back-arc basin. His Metamorphism study combines topics in areas such as Orogeny and Hornblende. His Petrology study which covers Gondwana that intersects with Period.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (51.67%)
  • Zircon (46.67%)
  • Paleontology (36.67%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2020)?

  • Geochemistry (51.67%)
  • Geologic map (6.67%)
  • Cartography (5.00%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Geologic map, Cartography, Rare-earth element and Carbonatite. His primary area of study in Geochemistry is in the field of Zircon. Geologic map connects with themes related to Structural basin in his study.

There are a combination of areas like Central asia, Earth science and Resource assessment integrated together with his Rare-earth element study.

Between 2009 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • New evidence for a continental rift tectonic setting of the Neoproterozoic Imorona-Itsindro Suite (central Madagascar) (12 citations)
  • Rare Earth Element Mineralogy, Geochemistry, and Preliminary Resource Assessment of the Khanneshin Carbonatite Complex, Helmand Province, Afghanistan: (6 citations)
  • New insights into the genesis of Neoproterozoic low-δ18O granitoids in the Seychelles: crustal cannibalization within an intra-plate extensional setting (1 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Igneous rock
  • Sedimentary rock

Robert D. Tucker mainly investigates Paleontology, Cannibalization, Extensional definition, Rare-earth element and Carbonatite. His study in Rodinia, Rift, Supercontinent, Continental arc and Mafic are all subfields of Paleontology. In his papers, Robert D. Tucker integrates diverse fields, such as Rare-earth element, Geochemistry and Resource assessment.
