Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Seismology
  • Subduction
  • Volcano

His primary areas of investigation include Seismology, Induced seismicity, Tectonics, Subduction and Crust. His research brings together the fields of Compression and Seismology. His work in Induced seismicity addresses subjects such as Volcano, which are connected to disciplines such as Mantle.

He combines topics linked to Submarine pipeline with his work on Tectonics. His Subduction study combines topics in areas such as Seismic tomography and Lithosphere. Alessandro Amato focuses mostly in the field of Seismotectonics, narrowing it down to matters related to Aftershock and, in some cases, Large earthquakes, L aquila and Seismic gap.

His most cited work include:

  • Carbon dioxide Earth degassing and seismogenesis in central and southern Italy (298 citations)
  • The 2009 L'Aquila (central Italy) MW6.3 earthquake: Main shock and aftershocks (274 citations)
  • The 1997 Umbria‐Marche, Italy, Earthquake Sequence: A first look at the main shocks and aftershocks (249 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Induced seismicity, Tectonics, Crust and Subduction. Phreatomagmatic eruption is closely connected to Seismic tomography in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Seismology. Alessandro Amato works mostly in the field of Induced seismicity, limiting it down to topics relating to Compression and, in certain cases, Front.

His research in the fields of Focal mechanism, Foreland basin, Thrust fault and Active fault overlaps with other disciplines such as Stress field. Alessandro Amato interconnects Fold and Mantle in the investigation of issues within Crust. He combines subjects such as Slab and Receiver function with his study of Subduction.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (77.36%)
  • Induced seismicity (26.42%)
  • Tectonics (25.47%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Seismology (77.36%)
  • Mediterranean sea (3.77%)
  • Risk perception (2.83%)

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

Alessandro Amato mainly investigates Seismology, Mediterranean sea, Risk perception, Crust and Tsunami warning system. His Global Positioning System research extends to the thematically linked field of Seismology. His studies deal with areas such as Foreland basin, Rift and Terrigenous sediment as well as Crust.

His Induced seismicity research incorporates themes from Seismic noise and Seismic wave. His study in the field of Subduction also crosses realms of Natural. His study in Subduction is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Volcano and Landslide.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Apulian crust: Top to bottom (20 citations)
  • The Italian National Seismic Network and the earthquake and tsunami monitoring and surveillance systems (17 citations)
  • The Alto Tiberina Near Fault Observatory (northern Apennines, Italy) (17 citations)

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

  • Seismology
  • Surgery
  • Subduction

His main research concerns Seismology, Data archive, Global Positioning System, L aquila and Criminal responsibility. His work in the fields of Seismology, such as Rift, overlaps with other areas such as Discontinuity. Alessandro Amato incorporates a variety of subjects into his writings, including Data archive, Seismic risk, Telecommunications, Earthquake catalog, Continuous data and Tsunami warning system.

The various areas that Alessandro Amato examines in his Global Positioning System study include Induced seismicity, Fault and Seismometer. You can notice a mix of various disciplines of study, such as Criminology and Risk communication, in his L aquila studies.
