Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction
  • Sedimentary rock

Timothy M. Kusky spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Craton, Archean, Petrology and Terrane. His research in Geochemistry intersects with topics in Subduction and Suture. His work deals with themes such as Foreland basin, Ophiolite, Rift and Continental collision, which intersect with Craton.

His Archean study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Felsic, Oceanic plateau, Oceanic crust and Earth science. His work in Petrology addresses issues such as Island arc, which are connected to fields such as Accretion, Basement, Lunar terrane, Molasse and Fold and thrust belt. His studies in Terrane integrate themes in fields like Late Devonian extinction, Back-arc basin and Paleozoic.

His most cited work include:

  • Paleoproterozoic tectonic evolution of the North China Craton (651 citations)
  • Accretionary orogens through Earth history (591 citations)
  • Late Cryogenian-Ediacaran history of the Arabian-Nubian Shield: A review of depositional, plutonic, structural, and tectonic events in the closing stages of the northern East African Orogen (378 citations)

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

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Craton, Archean, Subduction and Paleontology. His Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Ophiolite, Petrology and Terrane. Timothy M. Kusky interconnects Suture, Lithosphere, Mafic and Ultramafic rock in the investigation of issues within Craton.

His Greenstone belt study, which is part of a larger body of work in Archean, is frequently linked to North china, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Subduction study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Geophysics, Magmatism and Continental crust. His work carried out in the field of Metamorphism brings together such families of science as Extensional tectonics and Continental collision.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (60.81%)
  • Craton (45.61%)
  • Archean (24.32%)

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

  • Geochemistry (60.81%)
  • Craton (45.61%)
  • Archean (24.32%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Craton, Archean, Metamorphism and Subduction. His Geochemistry research includes elements of Magmatism and Terrane. The study incorporates disciplines such as Suture, Forearc, Gneiss and Zircon in addition to Craton.

In his work, Volcano and Earthquake swarm is strongly intertwined with Plate tectonics, which is a subfield of Archean. His Metamorphism study deals with Tectonics intersecting with Metallogeny. His Subduction research incorporates elements of Ophiolite, Arc and Partial melting.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Geology of a Neoarchean suture: Evidence from the Zunhua ophiolitic mélange of the Eastern Hebei Province, North China Craton (41 citations)
  • Geology of a Neoarchean suture: Evidence from the Zunhua ophiolitic mélange of the Eastern Hebei Province, North China Craton (41 citations)
  • Petrogenesis and geochronology of Paleoproterozoic magmatic rocks in the Kongling complex: Evidence for a collisional orogenic event in the Yangtze craton (14 citations)

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

  • Plate tectonics
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Subduction

Timothy M. Kusky focuses on Craton, Geochemistry, Forearc, Archean and North china. The various areas that Timothy M. Kusky examines in his Craton study include Precambrian and Lithosphere. His research on Geochemistry frequently links to adjacent areas such as Suture.

His Suture research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Primitive mantle, Ultramafic rock and Terrane. Quartz monzonite, Geochronology, Gneiss, Felsic and Petrogenesis is closely connected to Metamorphism in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Archean. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Zircon, Oceanic crust and Subduction is strongly linked to Basement.
