Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Erosion

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Paleontology, Sedimentary depositional environment, Permian, Structural basin and Facies. His study in the field of Sequence stratigraphy and Stratigraphy also crosses realms of Natural remanent magnetization. His studies in Sedimentary depositional environment integrate themes in fields like Submarine pipeline, Sedimentary rock, Sedimentology, Isopach map and Petrology.

Stephen S. Flint interconnects Paleomagnetism, Absolute dating, Gondwana and Overbank in the investigation of issues within Permian. His work on Aggradation as part of general Structural basin research is frequently linked to Lobe, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. The concepts of his Facies study are interwoven with issues in Trace fossil and Turbidite.

His most cited work include:

  • Evolution, architecture and hierarchy of distributary deep-water deposits: a high-resolution outcrop investigation from the Permian Karoo Basin, South Africa (187 citations)
  • The sedimentary record of sea-level change (187 citations)
  • Anatomy, geometry and sequence stratigraphy of basin floor to slope turbidite systems, Tanqua Karoo, South Africa (155 citations)

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

Stephen S. Flint mainly focuses on Paleontology, Structural basin, Geomorphology, Sedimentary depositional environment and Facies. His work in Permian, Sequence stratigraphy, Sedimentary rock, Fluvial and Cretaceous is related to Paleontology. As part of one scientific family, Stephen S. Flint deals mainly with the area of Structural basin, narrowing it down to issues related to the Outcrop, and often Seabed.

In the field of Geomorphology, his study on Carboniferous and Incised valley overlaps with subjects such as Delta. The Sedimentary depositional environment study combines topics in areas such as Sedimentology, Foreland basin, Sediment transport and Sequence. His studies deal with areas such as Aggradation, Petrology and Turbidite as well as Facies.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (62.39%)
  • Structural basin (44.50%)
  • Geomorphology (32.11%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Structural basin (44.50%)
  • Paleontology (62.39%)
  • Facies (24.31%)

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

Stephen S. Flint mainly investigates Structural basin, Paleontology, Facies, Sedimentary depositional environment and Geomorphology. His Structural basin research integrates issues from Sedimentary rock, Geochemistry, Outcrop and Sediment. His work on Permian, Siltstone and Beaufort Group is typically connected to Mouth bar as part of general Paleontology study, connecting several disciplines of science.

His Facies research includes themes of Sedimentology, Aggradation, Fluvial and Stratigraphy. The study incorporates disciplines such as Channelized, Sediment transport, Bathymetry and Turbidite in addition to Sedimentary depositional environment. His work on Clastic rock as part of general Geomorphology research is often related to Bedding, thus linking different fields of science.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Upper Permian magnetic stratigraphy of the lower Beaufort Group, Karoo Basin (65 citations)
  • U-PB zircon tuff geochronology from the Karoo Basin, South Africa: Implications of zircon recycling on stratigraphic age controls (62 citations)
  • Time-Transgressive Confinement On the Slope and the Progradation of Basin-Floor Fans: Implications For the Sequence Stratigraphy of Deep-Water Deposits (51 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Erosion

His scientific interests lie mostly in Facies, Paleontology, Structural basin, Sedimentary depositional environment and Outcrop. His work deals with themes such as Sedimentology, Stratigraphy and Crevasse, which intersect with Facies. A large part of his Paleontology studies is devoted to Permian.

When carried out as part of a general Structural basin research project, his work on Siltstone is frequently linked to work in Lobe, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His study in Sedimentary depositional environment is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Geochemistry, Zircon, Bathymetry, Petrology and Volcanic arc. Outcrop is a subfield of Geomorphology that Stephen S. Flint tackles.
