Ganapathy Shanmugam spends much of his time researching Sedimentary depositional environment, Turbidite, Turbidity current, Geomorphology and Paleontology. His research investigates the link between Turbidite and topics such as Flysch that cross with problems in Deep sea, Silt, Pleistocene, Ordovician and Sedimentary structures. The various areas that he examines in his Turbidity current study include Traction, Outcrop and Debris.
His study looks at the relationship between Geomorphology and fields such as Subaerial, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. The concepts of his Paleontology study are interwoven with issues in Submarine and Sea level. His studies in Facies integrate themes in fields like Sedimentary rock and Petroleum reservoir.
His primary areas of study are Paleontology, Sedimentary depositional environment, Geomorphology, Facies and Turbidite. He studies Sedimentary depositional environment, focusing on Sedimentary structures in particular. As a member of one scientific family, Ganapathy Shanmugam mostly works in the field of Geomorphology, focusing on Geochemistry and, on occasion, Source rock and Hydrology.
The Facies study combines topics in areas such as Petroleum reservoir, Contourite, Petrology, Subaerial and Submarine. Ganapathy Shanmugam combines subjects such as Outcrop, Sea level, Turbidity current and Flysch with his study of Turbidite. His biological study deals with issues like Submarine canyon, which deal with fields such as Siliciclastic.
Ganapathy Shanmugam mainly focuses on Turbidity current, Paleontology, Oceanography, Contourite and Sedimentology. His Turbidity current research is within the category of Sedimentary depositional environment. His Sedimentary depositional environment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Seismite and Turbidite.
His study in Paleontology concentrates on Facies and Structural basin. His Contourite research includes themes of Internal wave, Seismic wave, Geophysics and Thermohaline circulation. His Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Sedimentary structures, Siliciclastic and Geomorphology.
Ganapathy Shanmugam focuses on Sedimentary depositional environment, Paleontology, Turbidity current, Seismite and Sedimentology. His Sedimentary depositional environment research incorporates elements of Facies, Continental margin, Turbidite and Submarine canyon. His Facies research incorporates themes from Tectonics and Soft-sediment deformation structures.
His Continental margin study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Sedimentary rock, Structural basin, Clastic rock and Period. The various areas that Ganapathy Shanmugam examines in his Turbidite study include Canyon, Oceanography, Submarine and Bouma sequence. As part of his studies on Geomorphology, he often connects relevant subjects like Geochemistry.
