Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Tectonics
  • Plate tectonics
  • Paleontology

His primary areas of investigation include Seismology, Tectonics, Fault, Quaternary and Rift zone. His Seismology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Metamorphism and Submarine pipeline. His work carried out in the field of Tectonics brings together such families of science as Escarpment and Geomorphology.

His studies link Pleistocene with Fault. His studies in Quaternary integrate themes in fields like Induced seismicity, Forearc, Extensional fault and Tectonophysics. His Rift zone study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Seismotectonics, Fault scarp and Extensional tectonics.

His most cited work include:

  • Markers of the last interglacial sea-level high stand along the coast of Italy: Tectonic implications (349 citations)
  • Active faulting in the Calabrian arc and eastern Sicily (267 citations)
  • Recent and active tectonics in the Calabrian arc (Southern Italy) (263 citations)

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

His main research concerns Seismology, Tectonics, Paleontology, Fault and Quaternary. The Seismology study combines topics in areas such as Geodetic datum and Submarine pipeline. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sea level, Fold, Pleistocene and Holocene in addition to Tectonics.

He has included themes like Sedimentary rock and Sinistral and dextral in his Pleistocene study. His Fault research includes elements of Shear zone and Rift zone. His Quaternary research incorporates themes from Sedimentary basin, Structural basin, Mesozoic, Thrust tectonics and Fault scarp.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (53.57%)
  • Tectonics (33.33%)
  • Paleontology (25.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Seismology (53.57%)
  • Tectonics (33.33%)
  • Paleontology (25.00%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Seismology, Tectonics, Paleontology, Fault and Submarine pipeline. He frequently studies issues relating to Geodetic datum and Seismology. The concepts of his Tectonics study are interwoven with issues in Pleistocene, Fold and Seafloor spreading, Geophysics.

In general Paleontology study, his work on Quaternary, Foreland basin, Volcanic rock and Holocene often relates to the realm of Sicilian, thereby connecting several areas of interest. He combines subjects such as Structural geology, Shear zone, Bathymetry and Lithosphere with his study of Fault. His Submarine pipeline research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Seismic survey and Deformation.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Boulder accumulations related to extreme wave events on the eastern coast of Malta (33 citations)
  • A comprehensive interpretative model of slow slip events on Mt. Etna's eastern flank (29 citations)
  • Geotechnical characterization of limestones employed for the reconstruction of a UNESCO world heritage Baroque monument in southeastern Sicily (Italy) (26 citations)

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

  • Plate tectonics
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Tectonics

Carmelo Monaco mainly investigates Seismology, Fault, Tectonics, Volcano and Geodetic datum. He performs integrative study on Seismology and Ambient noise level in his works. His Fault research includes themes of Aftershock, Shear zone and Lithosphere.

He mostly deals with Anticline in his studies of Tectonics. His Volcano study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Slab and Magmatism. His research in Geodetic datum intersects with topics in Seismic risk and Geophysics.
