Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Erosion

His scientific interests lie mostly in Paleontology, Provenance, Sedimentary rock, Foreland basin and Detritus. His Provenance study is focused on Geochemistry in general. His work investigates the relationship between Sedimentary rock and topics such as Facies that intersect with problems in Apparent polar wander.

His studies deal with areas such as Metamorphism, Main Central Thrust, Diachronous and Fission track dating as well as Foreland basin. His Detritus research incorporates themes from Biostratigraphy and Suture. His Sediment study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Silt, Erosion and Fluvial.

His most cited work include:

  • Timing of India‐Asia collision: Geological, biostratigraphic, and palaeomagnetic constraints (431 citations)
  • Multicyclic History of the Northern India Continental Margin (Northwestern Himalaya) (1) (292 citations)
  • Early Permian Pangea 'B' to Late Permian Pangea 'A" (290 citations)

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

Eduardo Garzanti mainly investigates Provenance, Paleontology, Geochemistry, Sedimentary rock and Detritus. His research integrates issues of Sediment, Geomorphology and Mineralogy, Petrography in his study of Provenance. His work on Paleontology deals in particular with Cretaceous, Permian, Passive margin, Foreland basin and Gondwana.

His work on Tectonics expands to the thematically related Geochemistry. His Sedimentary rock research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Structural basin, Siliciclastic, Diagenesis and Continental margin. Eduardo Garzanti has researched Detritus in several fields, including Basement and Volcanic rock.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Provenance (49.10%)
  • Paleontology (44.73%)
  • Geochemistry (39.59%)

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

  • Geochemistry (39.59%)
  • Provenance (49.10%)
  • Sedimentary rock (27.76%)

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

His main research concerns Geochemistry, Provenance, Sedimentary rock, Paleontology and Zircon. The Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Tectonics and Indus. He is interested in Detritus, which is a field of Provenance.

His Sedimentary rock research integrates issues from Sedimentary depositional environment, Siliciclastic, Source rock, Basement and Terrane. His Paleontology and Cretaceous, Structural basin, Foreland basin, Gondwana and Rift investigations all form part of his Paleontology research activities. His Zircon research includes themes of Paleozoic, Passive margin and Volcanic rock.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Petrographic classification of sand and sandstone (59 citations)
  • Heavy Minerals for Junior Woodchucks (32 citations)
  • Palaeodrainage evolution of the large rivers of East Asia, and Himalayan-Tibet tectonics (25 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Erosion

Eduardo Garzanti focuses on Provenance, Geochemistry, Sedimentary rock, Paleontology and Detritus. He has included themes like Metamorphic rock, Sediment, Zircon and Weathering in his Provenance study. His work on Heavy mineral, Diagenesis and Sedimentary petrology as part of general Geochemistry study is frequently connected to Collision, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His Sedimentary rock study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Siliciclastic and Petrography. The concepts of his Paleontology study are interwoven with issues in Drainage system and Ocean surface topography. Eduardo Garzanti focuses mostly in the field of Cretaceous, narrowing it down to matters related to Terrane and, in some cases, Foreland basin.
