Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock
  • Subduction

Yaoling Niu mainly investigates Geochemistry, Subduction, Mantle, Basalt and Oceanic crust. Crust, Continental crust, Volcanic rock, Igneous rock and Petrogenesis are subfields of Geochemistry in which his conducts study. Yaoling Niu has included themes like Seafloor spreading, Earth science and Plate tectonics in his Subduction study.

He has researched Plate tectonics in several fields, including Proterozoic and Lunar terrane. His Basalt study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Trace element, Seamount and Radiogenic nuclide. His research in Zircon tackles topics such as Silicic which are related to areas like Mafic.

His most cited work include:

  • Petrogenesis of Mesozoic granitoids and volcanic rocks in south China : a response to tectonic evolution. (956 citations)
  • The Lhasa Terrane: Record of a microcontinent and its histories of drift and growth (700 citations)
  • The Lhasa Terrane: Record of a microcontinent and its histories of drift and growth (700 citations)

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

Yaoling Niu focuses on Geochemistry, Mantle, Subduction, Basalt and Continental crust. His studies deal with areas such as Petrology, Continental collision and Oceanic crust as well as Geochemistry. His Mantle research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Mantle plume and Lithosphere.

The concepts of his Subduction study are interwoven with issues in Seafloor spreading, Magmatism, Plate tectonics and Crust. Yaoling Niu interconnects Fractional crystallization, Felsic, Earth science, Pluton and Geochronology in the investigation of issues within Continental crust. His research investigates the link between Zircon and topics such as Terrane that cross with problems in Gondwana.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (124.36%)
  • Mantle (60.00%)
  • Subduction (52.56%)

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

  • Geochemistry (124.36%)
  • Mantle (60.00%)
  • Zircon (43.08%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Mantle, Zircon, Basalt and Subduction. His Geochemistry study frequently links to other fields, such as Oceanic crust. His Mantle research integrates issues from Lithosphere, Mantle wedge, Asthenosphere, Isotope geochemistry and Petrology.

The various areas that Yaoling Niu examines in his Zircon study include Petrogenesis, Volcanic rock, Terrane and Geochronology. His Subduction study combines topics in areas such as Ophiolite, Magmatism, Igneous rock and Crust. His research integrates issues of Continental collision and Pluton in his study of Continental crust.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Neoproterozoic amalgamation between Yangtze and Cathaysia blocks: The magmatism in various tectonic settings and continent-arc-continent collision (73 citations)
  • Geochronology and geochemistry of the Early Jurassic Yeba Formation volcanic rocks in southern Tibet: Initiation of back-arc rifting and crustal accretion in the southern Lhasa Terrane (44 citations)
  • Geochronology and geochemistry of the Early Jurassic Yeba Formation volcanic rocks in southern Tibet: Initiation of back-arc rifting and crustal accretion in the southern Lhasa Terrane (44 citations)

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

  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock
  • Plate tectonics

Geochemistry, Subduction, Zircon, Basalt and Oceanic crust are his primary areas of study. His work carried out in the field of Geochemistry brings together such families of science as Batholith and Eclogite. His Subduction research incorporates themes from Ophiolite, Rift, Magmatism and Igneous rock.

His Zircon research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Peridotite, Volcanic rock and Partial melting, Crust. As part of one scientific family, Yaoling Niu deals mainly with the area of Partial melting, narrowing it down to issues related to the Mafic, and often Proterozoic and Continental crust. His work deals with themes such as Isotope geochemistry and Mantle, which intersect with Basalt.
