Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Carbon dioxide

His primary scientific interests are in Proterozoic, Geochemistry, Paleontology, Anoxic waters and Precambrian. Timothy W. Lyons combines subjects such as Deep sea, Biosphere, Earth science and Ocean chemistry with his study of Proterozoic. He focuses mostly in the field of Geochemistry, narrowing it down to matters related to Mineralogy and, in some cases, Sulfide and Carbonate.

His studies deal with areas such as Total organic carbon and Water column as well as Anoxic waters. His Precambrian research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Paleoatmosphere, Sedimentary depositional environment, Great Oxygenation Event and Snowball Earth. His Pyrite research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Organic matter and Authigenic, Sediment.

His most cited work include:

  • Trace metals as paleoredox and paleoproductivity proxies: An update (1766 citations)
  • The rise of oxygen in Earth’s early ocean and atmosphere (1178 citations)
  • Tracing the stepwise oxygenation of the Proterozoic ocean (684 citations)

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

Timothy W. Lyons mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Paleontology, Anoxic waters, Environmental chemistry and Pyrite. His Geochemistry research includes elements of Carbonate, Mineralogy and Proterozoic. His Proterozoic study combines topics in areas such as Deep sea, Precambrian and Earth science.

Anoxic waters is a subfield of Oceanography that Timothy W. Lyons explores. In his research on the topic of Oceanography, Organic matter is strongly related with Sediment. As a part of the same scientific study, Timothy W. Lyons usually deals with the Pyrite, concentrating on Sulfate and frequently concerns with δ34S.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (31.05%)
  • Paleontology (23.16%)
  • Anoxic waters (23.68%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (31.05%)
  • Anoxic waters (23.68%)
  • Sedimentary rock (14.21%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Anoxic waters, Sedimentary rock, Earth science and Environmental chemistry. He interconnects Structural basin, Carbonate and Total organic carbon in the investigation of issues within Geochemistry. His study in Anoxic waters is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Seawater, Paleontology, Photic zone and Water column.

Timothy W. Lyons has included themes like Chemostratigraphy, Biogeochemical cycle and Pyrite in his Sedimentary rock study. His research integrates issues of Atmosphere, Biosphere, Proterozoic, Ecosystem and Precambrian in his study of Earth science. His Environmental chemistry study incorporates themes from Authigenic and Redox.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Evolution of the global phosphorus cycle (209 citations)
  • Iron formations: A global record of Neoarchaean to Palaeoproterozoic environmental history (122 citations)
  • Iron formations: A global record of Neoarchaean to Palaeoproterozoic environmental history (122 citations)

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

  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Carbon dioxide

His primary areas of investigation include Earth science, Proterozoic, Anoxic waters, Geochemistry and Sedimentary rock. The various areas that Timothy W. Lyons examines in his Earth science study include Biosphere, Earth, Surface oxygen, Ecosystem and Precambrian. The concepts of his Anoxic waters study are interwoven with issues in Bottom water and Structural basin, Paleontology, Mesozoic.

His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Deep sea and Carbonate. His Sedimentary rock study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Water column and Pyrite. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Environmental chemistry and Sulfur.
