Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Seismology
  • Tectonics
  • Fault

His primary areas of investigation include Seismology, Seismic hazard, Tectonics, Active fault and Fault. His research in the fields of Induced seismicity overlaps with other disciplines such as Deformation. Seismic hazard is closely attributed to Seismic risk in his research.

Gianluca Valensise works mostly in the field of Tectonics, limiting it down to topics relating to Pleistocene and, in certain cases, Geomorphology and Shore. He has included themes like Seismotectonics, Section and Focal mechanism in his Active fault study. His Fault research includes themes of Orientation, Rectangle, Projection and Peninsula.

His most cited work include:

  • Catalogo dei forti terremoti in Italia dal 461 a.C. (391 citations)
  • The Database of Individual Seismogenic Sources (DISS), version 3: Summarizing 20 years of research on Italy's earthquake geology (303 citations)
  • Defining seismogenic sources from historical earthquake felt reports (237 citations)

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

Seismology, Tectonics, Seismic hazard, Fault and Active fault are his primary areas of study. His Seismology research incorporates themes from Geodetic datum and Geophysics. His Tectonics study incorporates themes from Crust, Quaternary, Section and Geodesy.

His work in the fields of Seismic hazard, such as Earthquake scenario, intersects with other areas such as Northern italy. His research integrates issues of Orientation, Structural basin and Peninsula in his study of Fault. His Active fault study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Structural geology and Focal mechanism.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (66.24%)
  • Tectonics (24.20%)
  • Seismic hazard (21.02%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Seismology (66.24%)
  • Seismic hazard (21.02%)
  • Tectonics (24.20%)

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

Gianluca Valensise mainly focuses on Seismology, Seismic hazard, Tectonics, Classification of discontinuities and Induced seismicity. His research in Seismology focuses on subjects like Arc, which are connected to Submarine pipeline. His Seismic hazard research includes elements of Fault, L aquila and 2008 California earthquake study.

As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Induced seismicity, narrowing it down to issues related to the Crust, and often Earth science and Mud volcano. In his study, Geodetic datum is inextricably linked to Inversion, which falls within the broad field of Lithosphere. In general Earthquake scenario study, his work on Environmental Seismic Intensity scale often relates to the realm of Coupling, Expert elicitation and Risk analysis, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The 2013 European Seismic Hazard Model: key components and results (215 citations)
  • The seismotectonics of the Po Plain (northern Italy): tectonic diversity in a blind faulting domain (53 citations)
  • CFTI5Med, Catalogo dei Forti Terremoti in Italia (461 a.C.-1997) e nell'area Mediterranea (760 a.C.-1500) (39 citations)

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

  • Seismology
  • Fault
  • Tectonics

Gianluca Valensise mainly investigates Seismology, Tectonics, Seismic hazard, Fault and Classification of discontinuities. His work often combines Seismology and Homogeneous studies. His Geodetic inversion, Normal fault, Negative inversion, Nappe and Thrust tectonics investigations are all subjects of Tectonics research.

His work carried out in the field of Seismic hazard brings together such families of science as Regional science and Large earthquakes. His study in Fault is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Foreland basin, Geodetic datum, Geological evidence and L aquila. He integrates many fields in his works, including Classification of discontinuities, Isotropy, Chart, Replicate, Discontinuity and Observable.
