Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt
  • Sedimentary rock

Roberto F. Weinberg focuses on Geochemistry, Seismology, Petrology, Tectonics and Geomorphology. Geochemistry and Subduction are frequently intertwined in his study. His research in Petrology intersects with topics in Magma and Pluton.

Roberto F. Weinberg combines subjects such as Dike and Diapir with his study of Pluton. His Tectonics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Extrusion and Crust. The concepts of his Geomorphology study are interwoven with issues in Slip, Shear zone and Terrane.

His most cited work include:

  • Water-fluxed melting of the continental crust: A review (217 citations)
  • Diapiric ascent of magmas through power law crust and mantle (172 citations)
  • Transpressional tectonics along the Karakoram fault zone, northern Ladakh: constraints on Tibetan extrusion (151 citations)

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

Roberto F. Weinberg mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Petrology, Shear zone, Crust and Lithosphere. His research on Geochemistry often connects related areas such as Yilgarn Craton. His research integrates issues of Mylonite, Continental crust, Pluton, Diapir and Magma in his study of Petrology.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Mineralogy and Igneous rock. Roberto F. Weinberg has included themes like Orogeny, Geomorphology and Terrane in his Shear zone study. His Lithosphere research incorporates elements of Craton, Rift and Geophysics, Mantle.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (47.37%)
  • Petrology (27.53%)
  • Shear zone (25.10%)

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

  • Geochemistry (47.37%)
  • Crust (14.17%)
  • Petrology (27.53%)

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

Roberto F. Weinberg spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Crust, Petrology, Anatexis and Zircon. His Geochemistry research includes themes of Magmatism and Terrane. Roberto F. Weinberg focuses mostly in the field of Crust, narrowing it down to matters related to Igneous differentiation and, in some cases, Rhyolite, Fractional crystallization and Hornblende.

His Petrology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Deformation mechanism, Mylonite, Horizontal and vertical and Pluton. His research in Anatexis intersects with topics in Migmatite, Metamorphic rock and Gneiss. His Zircon study combines topics in areas such as Breccia, Batholith, Mafic and Amphibole.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Structural and Geochronological Constraints on Devonian Suprasubduction Tectonic Switching and Permian Collisional Dynamics in the Chinese Altai, Central Asia (27 citations)
  • A 60-Myr record of continental back-arc differentiation through cyclic melting (22 citations)
  • Constructing the Early Mesozoic Gangdese Crust in Southern Tibet by Hornblende-dominated Magmatic Differentiation (21 citations)

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

  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt
  • Brittleness

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Crust, Paleontology, Tectonics and Petrology. Geochemistry is often connected to Gondwana in his work. His study looks at the relationship between Crust and fields such as Magmatism, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

His work focuses on many connections between Tectonics and other disciplines, such as Early Earth, that overlap with his field of interest in Earth science, Mantle convection, Craton, Plate tectonics and Lithosphere. The concepts of his Petrology study are interwoven with issues in Mylonite, Two-phase flow, Dynamics, Deformation mechanism and Diapir. His Anatexis study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Xenolith and Magma.
