Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock

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.

His most cited work include:

  • Hydrothermal Processes and Mineral Systems (450 citations)
  • Major types and time–space distribution of Mesozoic ore deposits in South China and their geodynamic settings (407 citations)
  • Distinct mantle sources of low-Ti and high-Ti basalts from the western Emeishan large igneous province, SW China: implications for plume–lithosphere interaction (321 citations)

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

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.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (99.64%)
  • Craton (21.74%)
  • Mantle plume (19.57%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Geochemistry (99.64%)
  • Zircon (14.13%)
  • Mineralization (11.23%)

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

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.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Evidence for early life in Earth’s oldest hydrothermal vent precipitates (269 citations)
  • The Mo deposits of Northeast China: A powerful indicator of tectonic settings and associated evolutionary trends (106 citations)
  • Molybdenite Re/Os dating, zircon U–Pb age and geochemistry of granitoids in the Yangchuling porphyry W–Mo deposit (Jiangnan tungsten ore belt), China: implications for petrogenesis, mineralization and geodynamic setting (65 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt
  • Igneous rock

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.
