Congratulations to Dr Ana Gibbons, Dr Sabin Zahirovic, Dr Joanne Whittaker and Dr Yatheesh Vadakkeyakath, whose paper “A tectonic model reconciling evidence for the collisions between India, Eurasia and intra-oceanic arcs of the central-eastern Tethys” is now the third-most downloaded paper on Gondwana Research over the last 90 days!
The paper already has 3 citations (not bad for a paper that just came out this month).
Gibbons, A. D., Zahirovic, S., Müller, R. D., Whittaker, J. M., & Yatheesh, V. (2015). A tectonic model reconciling evidence for the collisions between India, Eurasia and intra-oceanic arcs of the central-eastern Tethys. Gondwana Research. doi: 10.1016/j.gr.2015.01.001.
In addition, a plate tectonic animation based on the paper has recently been added to NOAA’s Science on a Sphere database by Sabin. See previous news post:
The NOAA post and video clip have had nearly 95,000 views in a couple of days, and almost 3000 Facebook shares! This is by far the largest impact any of our research has had online on social media.
