Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Subduction
  • Plate tectonics
  • Tectonics

His primary scientific interests are in Subduction, Seismology, Slab, Mantle and Mantle convection. His studies in Subduction integrate themes in fields like Lithosphere, Plate tectonics and Crust. His work in Seismology is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Paleontology.

His Slab study combines topics in areas such as Metamorphic rock, Geometry, Viscosity, Mechanics and North Anatolian Fault. His study in Mantle is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Denudation, Volcanism, Ocean surface topography and Mantle flow. His research integrates issues of Mediterranean climate, Mantle wedge and Transition zone in his study of Mantle convection.

His most cited work include:

  • Mediterranean extension and the Africa‐Eurasia collision (714 citations)
  • Lateral slab deformation and the origin of the western Mediterranean arcs (687 citations)
  • History of subduction and back‐arc extension in the Central Mediterranean (465 citations)

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

Claudio Faccenna mostly deals with Subduction, Seismology, Mantle, Slab and Tectonics. His Subduction research includes themes of Petrology, Lithosphere, Geophysics and Plate tectonics. His Neogene research extends to Seismology, which is thematically connected.

Claudio Faccenna interconnects Ocean surface topography, Mantle convection and Mantle flow in the investigation of issues within Mantle. His research in Slab intersects with topics in Seismic tomography, Eclogitization, Volcanism and Slab suction. In his study, Blueschist is inextricably linked to Metamorphic rock, which falls within the broad field of Tectonics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Subduction (43.91%)
  • Seismology (33.65%)
  • Mantle (26.73%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Subduction (43.91%)
  • Paleontology (23.39%)
  • Mantle (26.73%)

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

Claudio Faccenna focuses on Subduction, Paleontology, Mantle, Tectonics and Slab. His Subduction study is associated with Seismology. Claudio Faccenna combines subjects such as Drainage system and Atlas with his study of Paleontology.

The various areas that Claudio Faccenna examines in his Mantle study include Ocean surface topography, Lithosphere, Mantle convection and Plate tectonics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Granular material, Mediterranean climate and Mineralogy in addition to Tectonics. His Slab research incorporates elements of Volcanism, Mantle wedge and Transition zone.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Initiation of the Andean orogeny by lower mantle subduction (46 citations)
  • Mantle Flow and Deforming Continents: From India-Asia Convergence to Pacific Subduction. (34 citations)
  • Dynamics of the Ryukyu/Izu-Bonin-Marianas double subduction system (29 citations)

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

  • Subduction
  • Plate tectonics
  • Tectonics

Claudio Faccenna spends much of his time researching Paleontology, Mantle, Subduction, Tectonics and Lithosphere. Claudio Faccenna focuses mostly in the field of Paleontology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Atlas and, in certain cases, Strain partitioning and Transpression. The concepts of his Mantle study are interwoven with issues in Paleomagnetism, Mantle convection, Sedimentary rock, Paleogene and Neogene.

His Subduction study introduces a deeper knowledge of Seismology. Many of his research projects under Tectonics are closely connected to Outlier with Outlier, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His Lithosphere research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Petrology, Passive margin, Geophysics and Rift zone.
