Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt
  • Sedimentary rock

Antonio García-Casco mainly investigates Geochemistry, Subduction, Metamorphic rock, Paleontology and Petrology. His Geochemistry study incorporates themes from Accretion and Volcanic arc. His work on Oceanic crust, Adakite and Mantle wedge as part of general Subduction study is frequently linked to Clockwise, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His Metamorphic rock research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Eclogite and Amphibole. He is involved in the study of Petrology that focuses on Metamorphism in particular. He has included themes like Magmatism, Tectonics, Gondwana and Supercontinent in his Zircon study.

His most cited work include:

  • Cooling and exhumation of the Western Betic Cordilleras, 40Ar/39Ar thermochronological constraints on a collapsed terrane (143 citations)
  • Melting Relations of MORB–Sediment Mélanges in Underplated Mantle Wedge Plumes; Implications for the Origin of Cordilleran-type Batholiths (127 citations)
  • Latest Cretaceous Collision/Accretion between the Caribbean Plate and Caribeana: Origin of Metamorphic Terranes in the Greater Antilles (104 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Subduction, Metamorphism, Ophiolite and Zircon. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Mantle wedge, Terrane and Oceanic crust. His Subduction research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Petrology and Crust.

In his study, Massif is strongly linked to Eclogite, which falls under the umbrella field of Metamorphism. His research in Zircon tackles topics such as Phengite which are related to areas like Titanite, Archaeology and Lawsonite. His work on Schist as part of general Metamorphic rock research is often related to Metamorphic facies, thus linking different fields of science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (104.65%)
  • Subduction (47.67%)
  • Metamorphism (40.12%)

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

  • Geochemistry (104.65%)
  • Ophiolite (28.49%)
  • Chromite (12.21%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Ophiolite, Chromite, Metamorphism and Chromitite. His research brings together the fields of Eclogite and Geochemistry. His work carried out in the field of Ophiolite brings together such families of science as Orthopyroxenite and Devonian.

His Chromite research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Pyrrhotite, Pentlandite, Cubanite, Sperrylite and Valleriite. The Greenschist research Antonio García-Casco does as part of his general Metamorphism study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Caribbean region, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. As a part of the same scientific family, Antonio García-Casco mostly works in the field of Chromitite, focusing on Peridotite and, on occasion, Igneous rock, Laurite, Mantle plume and Large igneous province.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A shallow origin for diamonds in ophiolitic chromitites (19 citations)
  • Tectono‐Metamorphic Evolution of the Central Ribeira Belt, Brazil: A Case of Late Neoproterozoic Intracontinental Orogeny and Flow of Partially Molten Deep Crust During the Assembly of West Gondwana (11 citations)
  • Rehydration of eclogites and garnet-replacement processes during exhumation in the amphibolite facies (8 citations)

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

  • Igneous rock
  • Basalt
  • Paleontology

Geochemistry, Gondwana, Petrology, Orogeny and Metamorphic rock are his primary areas of study. His Geochemistry research includes elements of Winnowing, Sediment and Eclogite. The Gondwana study combines topics in areas such as Metamorphism, Diachronous and Lithosphere.

His studies in Petrology integrate themes in fields like Subduction and Series. His research integrates issues of Crust, Magmatism, Mafic, Tonian and Terrane in his study of Orogeny. His Metamorphic rock study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Accretionary wedge.
