Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt
  • Paleontology

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Zircon, Mineralogy, Geochronology and Paleontology. His studies in Geochemistry integrate themes in fields like Craton and Petrology. His Craton study incorporates themes from Foreland basin, Subduction, Eclogite and Continental crust.

His Zircon research includes elements of Proterozoic, Metamorphism, Provenance and Devonian. Trevor Ireland combines subjects such as Chondrite and Isotopes of oxygen with his study of Mineralogy. His Geochronology study combines topics in areas such as Uranium-thorium dating, Sensitive high-resolution ion microprobe, Hadean and Pluton.

His most cited work include:

  • U/Pb zircon ages constrain the architecture of the ultrahigh-pressure Qinling–Dabie Orogen, China (811 citations)
  • Tectonics of the Qinling (Central China): tectonostratigraphy, geochronology, and deformation history (638 citations)
  • Rare earth element chemistry of zircon and its use as a provenance indicator (589 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Zircon, Mineralogy, Chondrite and Meteorite. His Geochemistry and Geochronology, Metamorphism, Archean, Metamorphic rock and Trace element investigations all form part of his Geochemistry research activities. While the research belongs to areas of Zircon, Trevor Ireland spends his time largely on the problem of Paleozoic, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Devonian.

Much of his study explores Mineralogy relationship to Analytical chemistry. Chondrite is a primary field of his research addressed under Astrobiology. His work deals with themes such as Hibonite, Carbonaceous chondrite, Isotopes of magnesium, Nucleosynthesis and Asymptotic giant branch, which intersect with Murchison meteorite.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (55.09%)
  • Zircon (30.53%)
  • Mineralogy (19.65%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (55.09%)
  • Pyrite (5.96%)
  • δ34S (2.81%)

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

Trevor Ireland mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Pyrite, δ34S, Trace element and Zircon. Trevor Ireland has researched Geochemistry in several fields, including Skarn and Subduction. The δ34S study combines topics in areas such as Isotope fractionation, Diagenesis and Archean.

The various areas that he examines in his Trace element study include Structural basin, Isotope geochemistry and Mineralogy. His studies deal with areas such as Chondrule, Allende meteorite and Radiogenic nuclide as well as Mineralogy. His Zircon research incorporates themes from Greenstone belt, δ18O, Craton, Geochronology and Magma.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Elemental Abundances (with Uncertainties) of the Most Earth-like Planet (39 citations)
  • Globally asynchronous sulphur isotope signals require re-definition of the Great Oxidation Event (36 citations)
  • Reconnaissance Basement Geology and Tectonics of South Zealandia (23 citations)

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

  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock
  • Paleontology

His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Trace element, Solar System, Tectonics and Diagenesis. Geochemistry connects with themes related to Skarn in his study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Exoplanet, Planet and Terrestrial planet.

Within one scientific family, Trevor Ireland focuses on topics pertaining to Sedimentary rock under Diagenesis, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Atmospheric oxygen, Geochronology, Sulphur isotope and Weathering. He has included themes like Refractory, Chondrite and Analytical chemistry in his Mineralogy study. His Murchison meteorite study in the realm of Chondrite connects with subjects such as Refractory metals.
