Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Plate tectonics
  • Subduction
  • Statistics

Wim Spakman spends much of his time researching Subduction, Seismology, Lithosphere, Mantle and Slab. His work is dedicated to discovering how Subduction, Geodynamics are connected with Island arc and Obduction and other disciplines. While the research belongs to areas of Seismology, he spends his time largely on the problem of Clockwise, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Far East, Deformation, Intraplate earthquake, Megathrust earthquake and Syntaxis.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Seismic tomography and Epicenter in addition to Lithosphere. His study in Mantle is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Geodesy, Mantle wedge, Hotspot and Cretaceous. The Tectonics study combines topics in areas such as Neogene and Induced seismicity.

His most cited work include:

  • Subduction and Slab Detachment in the Mediterranean-Carpathian Region (1207 citations)
  • Closing the gap between regional and global travel time tomography (864 citations)
  • Zagros orogeny: a subduction-dominated process (517 citations)

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

Wim Spakman mainly investigates Subduction, Seismology, Paleontology, Slab and Mantle. His work deals with themes such as Seismic tomography, Lithosphere and Plate tectonics, which intersect with Subduction. His Lithosphere research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Geodynamics, Hypocenter, Ridge and Sea level.

His Seismology study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Transition zone. Wim Spakman combines subjects such as Mechanics, African Plate and Slab suction with his study of Slab. His Mantle study incorporates themes from Mantle wedge and Crust.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Subduction (78.71%)
  • Seismology (45.25%)
  • Paleontology (44.49%)

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

  • Subduction (78.71%)
  • Paleontology (44.49%)
  • Slab (46.01%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Subduction, Paleontology, Slab, Mantle and Tectonics. His Subduction research incorporates elements of Seismic tomography and Petrology. His study in the field of Paleomagnetism, Lithosphere, Geodynamics and Cretaceous also crosses realms of Plume.

His study on Slab also encompasses disciplines like

  • Plate tectonics that connect with fields like Clockwise,
  • Seismology which connect with Curvature. His studies in Mantle integrate themes in fields like Flat slab subduction and Crust. As a member of one scientific family, Wim Spakman mostly works in the field of Tectonics, focusing on Mediterranean climate and, on occasion, Deformation, Solid earth and Tectonophysics.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Orogenic architecture of the Mediterranean region and kinematic reconstruction of its tectonic evolution since the Triassic (77 citations)
  • Orogenic architecture of the Mediterranean region and kinematic reconstruction of its tectonic evolution since the Triassic (77 citations)
  • Reconstructing Greater India : Paleogeographic, kinematic, and geodynamic perspectives (51 citations)

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

  • Plate tectonics
  • Statistics
  • Subduction

His primary areas of study are Subduction, Slab, Paleontology, Mantle and Plate tectonics. His Subduction study frequently involves adjacent topics like Seismic tomography. Wim Spakman has researched Slab in several fields, including Mechanics, Newtonian fluid and Solver.

His research in Mantle intersects with topics in Orogeny, Flat slab subduction, Continental collision, Shear zone and African Plate. Plate tectonics is a subfield of Seismology that Wim Spakman studies. His Paleomagnetism research incorporates themes from Geodynamics and Lithosphere.
