Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Basalt
  • Subduction
  • Igneous rock

Wenjiao Xiao mainly investigates Geochemistry, Paleontology, Zircon, Paleozoic and Subduction. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Adakite and Petrology. Wenjiao Xiao interconnects Mantle wedge, Metamorphism, Geochronology, Precambrian and Gneiss in the investigation of issues within Zircon.

His Paleozoic study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Paleomagnetism, Ordovician, Mesozoic, Sedimentary depositional environment and Devonian. His Subduction research includes themes of Fold and Terrane. His Island arc research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ophiolite and Volcanic rock.

His most cited work include:

  • Tectonic models for accretion of the Central Asian Orogenic Belt (2014 citations)
  • Accretion leading to collision and the Permian Solonker suture, Inner Mongolia, China: Termination of the central Asian orogenic belt (1271 citations)
  • Middle Cambrian to Permian subduction-related accretionary orogenesis of Northern Xinjiang, NW China: Implications for the tectonic evolution of central Asia (661 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Zircon, Paleontology, Subduction and Paleozoic. He has researched Geochemistry in several fields, including Craton and Petrology. His work focuses on many connections between Craton and other disciplines, such as Continental margin, that overlap with his field of interest in Continental arc.

His study on Zircon also encompasses disciplines like

  • Partial melting that intertwine with fields like Adakite,
  • Volcanic rock, which have a strong connection to Basalt,
  • Precambrian, which have a strong connection to Basement. His study in Subduction is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ophiolite, Mantle and Crust. In his study, Sedimentary rock is inextricably linked to Provenance, which falls within the broad field of Paleozoic.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (76.23%)
  • Zircon (44.54%)
  • Paleontology (32.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (76.23%)
  • Paleontology (32.33%)
  • Subduction (27.19%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Paleontology, Subduction, Zircon and Paleozoic. His research on Geochemistry often connects related areas such as Craton. His work in Paleontology addresses subjects such as Arc, which are connected to disciplines such as Stage, Devonian and Permian.

His Subduction study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Basalt and Volcanic rock. His study on Zircon also encompasses disciplines like

  • Continental arc, which have a strong connection to Rodinia, Supercontinent and Continental margin,
  • Geochronology and related Ophiolite. Wenjiao Xiao combines subjects such as Accretionary complex, Back-arc basin and Accretion with his study of Paleozoic.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Accretionary processes and metallogenesis of the Central Asian Orogenic Belt: Advances and perspectives (13 citations)
  • Geochronology and geochemistry of Late Carboniferous dykes in the Aqishan–Yamansu belt, eastern Tianshan: Evidence for a post-collisional slab breakoff (13 citations)
  • Revision of the Chinese Altai‐East Junggar Terrane Accretion Model Based on Geophysical and Geological Constraints (8 citations)

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

  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock
  • Sedimentary rock

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Zircon, Subduction, Paleontology and Geochronology. His Geochemistry study frequently links to other fields, such as Craton. His Subduction research focuses on subjects like Basalt, which are linked to Structural geology, Schist, Ladinian, Asthenosphere and Oceanic crust.

His Tectonics, Stage and Terrane study in the realm of Paleontology connects with subjects such as Closure. In his research, Diachronous and Continental collision is intimately related to Paleozoic, which falls under the overarching field of Tectonics. As a member of one scientific family, Wenjiao Xiao mostly works in the field of Geochronology, focusing on Accretionary complex and, on occasion, Seamount.
