Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Paleontology
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Organic chemistry

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Paleontology, Cenozoic, Structural basin, Magnetostratigraphy and Geomorphology. His Paleontology study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Paleoclimatology. His Cenozoic study incorporates themes from Late Miocene and Tectonics.

His studies deal with areas such as Climatology, Physical geography and Aridification as well as Structural basin. His work deals with themes such as Neogene, Conglomerate and Fluvial, which intersect with Magnetostratigraphy. His work on Paleosol as part of general Geomorphology research is frequently linked to Clockwise, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His most cited work include:

  • Tibetan plateau aridification linked to global cooling at the Eocene–Oligocene transition (402 citations)
  • Tibetan plateau aridification linked to global cooling at the Eocene–Oligocene transition (402 citations)
  • Uplift of the Tibetan Plateau and environmental changes (343 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Paleontology, Structural basin, Cenozoic, Geomorphology and Geochemistry. His study in Paleontology focuses on Magnetostratigraphy, Sedimentary rock, Tectonics, Paleomagnetism and Tectonic uplift. He interconnects Aridification, Paleoclimatology and Physical geography in the investigation of issues within Structural basin.

His research in Cenozoic focuses on subjects like Late Miocene, which are connected to Period. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Geomorphology, concentrating on Quaternary and intersecting with Loess plateau. His research on Loess also deals with topics like

  • Monsoon which is related to area like Westerlies and Paleosol,
  • Climatology that connect with fields like Glacial period and Holocene.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (60.00%)
  • Structural basin (47.34%)
  • Cenozoic (33.16%)

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

  • Structural basin (47.34%)
  • Geochemistry (27.34%)
  • Paleontology (60.00%)

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

His primary areas of study are Structural basin, Geochemistry, Paleontology, Cenozoic and Aridification. His research integrates issues of Climate change, Chronology and Zircon in his study of Structural basin. His Geochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Arid, Aeolian processes, Quaternary and Paleoclimatology.

His works in Sedimentary rock, Magnetostratigraphy, Late Miocene, Tectonics and Paleomagnetism are all subjects of inquiry into Paleontology. His Cenozoic research incorporates elements of East Asian Monsoon, Asian Dust and Paleogene. His Aridification research includes elements of Neogene, Tectonic uplift and Physical geography.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Cenozoic magnetostratigraphy of the Xining Basin, NE Tibetan Plateau, and its constraints on paleontological, sedimentological and tectonomorphological evolution (40 citations)
  • Paleogene global cooling–induced temperature feedback on chemical weathering, as recorded in the northern Tibetan Plateau (20 citations)
  • Major advances in studies of the physical geography and living environment of China during the past 70 years and future prospects (18 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Organic chemistry

Xiaomin Fang mostly deals with Structural basin, Geochemistry, Paleontology, Aridification and Aeolian processes. The Structural basin study combines topics in areas such as Sedimentary rock, Period and Climate change. The concepts of his Geochemistry study are interwoven with issues in Global cooling and Quaternary.

He is studying Chronology, which is a component of Paleontology. In his work, Neogene, Steppe and Glacial period is strongly intertwined with Cenozoic, which is a subfield of Aridification. His studies in Aeolian processes integrate themes in fields like Arid and Loess.
