Alain Vauchez mainly investigates Mantle, Geochemistry, Shear zone, Olivine and Lithosphere. His work on Peridotite as part of general Mantle research is frequently linked to Dislocation creep, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Peridotite research incorporates elements of Mineralogy, Petrology and Partial melting.
Alain Vauchez works in the field of Geochemistry, namely Zircon. Shear zone is a subfield of Seismology that he explores. His study in Lithosphere is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Indentation, São Francisco Craton, Craton and Deformation.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Petrology, Shear zone, Lithosphere and Geophysics. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lineation and Mylonite. His research integrates issues of Volcano, Crust, Quartz, Seismic anisotropy and Terrane in his study of Petrology.
His Shear zone study combines topics in areas such as Shear, Metamorphic rock, Orogeny and Deformation. His Lithosphere research integrates issues from Xenolith, Partial melting, Mantle and Craton. His biological study deals with issues like Olivine, which deal with fields such as Websterite.
Alain Vauchez mostly deals with Geochemistry, Petrology, Shear zone, Crust and Peridotite. His research in Geochemistry intersects with topics in Lineation, Mylonite and Rift. His work deals with themes such as Orogeny, Geophysics, Xenolith, Lithosphere and Terrane, which intersect with Petrology.
His Shear zone research includes themes of Rheology, Microstructure and Mineralogy. His Peridotite study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Massif and Metasomatism. His Metasomatism study incorporates themes from East African Rift and Olivine.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Peridotite, Lineation, Mylonite and Geophysics. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Foreland basin and Amphibole. His Peridotite research incorporates themes from Boudinage, Rift, Olivine and Massif.
