His main research concerns Geochemistry, Craton, Magmatism, Metallogeny and Mantle plume. His study in Geochemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Tectonics, Terrane and Cretaceous. His Cretaceous research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Molybdenite and Pluton.
His Craton study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Subduction, Back-arc basin, Mesozoic and Paleozoic. In his research, Partial melting and Petrogenesis is intimately related to Lithosphere, which falls under the overarching field of Mantle. His studies in Igneous rock integrate themes in fields like Mafic and Volcanic rock.
Geochemistry, Craton, Mantle plume, Hydrothermal circulation and Magmatism are his primary areas of study. His Geochemistry study incorporates themes from Skarn and Mineralization. His Craton research incorporates elements of Subduction, Terrane and Archean.
His study looks at the intersection of Mantle plume and topics like Mantle with Diorite. His studies deal with areas such as Intraplate earthquake, Lithosphere, Geomorphology and Metallogeny as well as Magmatism. Franco Pirajno combines subjects such as Partial melting and Volcanic rock with his study of Igneous rock.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Zircon, Mineralization, Geochronology and Tectonics. His work carried out in the field of Geochemistry brings together such families of science as Mantle plume and Craton. His Craton study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Proterozoic and Volcanic belt.
He has included themes like Isochron, Partial melting and Oceanic crust in his Zircon study. His Mineralization research incorporates themes from Metasomatism and Breccia. His Tectonics research includes elements of Structural basin, Fault and Impact crater.
His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Craton, Mineralization, Zircon and Tectonics. Franco Pirajno works in the field of Geochemistry, focusing on Pyrite in particular. His Craton research integrates issues from Structural basin, Stockwork, Proterozoic and Volcanic belt.
Franco Pirajno focuses mostly in the field of Volcanic belt, narrowing it down to topics relating to Skarn and, in certain cases, Clastic rock. His research in Mineralization intersects with topics in Sedimentary rock, Carbonate rock, Dolomite, Metasomatism and Diorite. As part of the same scientific family, Franco Pirajno usually focuses on Magmatism, concentrating on Rift and intersecting with Continental crust and Terrigenous sediment.
