Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Paleontology
  • Plate tectonics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Paleontology, Structural basin, Tectonics, Seismology and Rift. His research on Paleontology often connects related topics like Tension. Giovanni Bertotti combines subjects such as Fault and Crust with his study of Structural basin.

His work deals with themes such as Continental margin and Cretaceous, which intersect with Rift. His Geomorphology research focuses on Quaternary and how it relates to Extensional tectonics. His Lithosphere study combines topics in areas such as Orogeny, Permian, Graben, Carboniferous and Oceanic crust.

His most cited work include:

  • From rifting to drifting: tectonic evolution of the South-Alpine upper crust from the Triassic to the Early Cretaceous (265 citations)
  • Large-scale deformation in a locked collisional boundary : interplay between subsidence and uplift, intraplate stress, and inherited lithospheric structure in the late stage of the SE Carpathians evolution (140 citations)
  • Thermo-mechanical controls on the mode of continental collision in the SE Carpathians (Romania) (137 citations)

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

Giovanni Bertotti mostly deals with Paleontology, Petrology, Tectonics, Geomorphology and Structural basin. His Paleontology research focuses on Rift, Cretaceous, Subsidence, Passive margin and Continental margin. He works mostly in the field of Rift, limiting it down to concerns involving Lithosphere and, occasionally, Crust and Mantle.

Giovanni Bertotti interconnects Permeability, Outcrop, Fracture, Gemology and Environmental geology in the investigation of issues within Petrology. His research in Tectonics is mostly concerned with Sedimentary basin. Giovanni Bertotti has included themes like Sedimentary rock, Fault and Quaternary in his Structural basin study.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Paleontology (34.29%)
  • Petrology (28.57%)
  • Tectonics (26.12%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Fracture (15.92%)
  • Petrology (28.57%)
  • Paleontology (34.29%)

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

His primary areas of study are Fracture, Petrology, Paleontology, Geochemistry and Structural basin. His Fracture research also works with subjects such as

  • Hydrogeology that connect with fields like Igneous petrology and Petrography,
  • Overprinting, Traverse and Seismology most often made with reference to Orientation. His work in Cretaceous, Quaternary, Subduction, Fold and Rift are all subfields of Paleontology research.

His studies in Geochemistry integrate themes in fields like Sedimentary depositional environment and Fault. His Structural basin research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Mining engineering and Geothermal exploration. Subsidence is closely connected to Sedimentation in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Crust.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Analysing the limitations of the dual-porosity response during well tests in naturally fractured reservoirs (17 citations)
  • Are stylolites fluid-flow efficient features? (14 citations)
  • Testing the preservation potential of early diagenetic dolomites as geochemical archives (13 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Plate tectonics
  • Paleontology

Giovanni Bertotti mostly deals with Paleontology, Fracture, Petrology, Geochemistry and Cretaceous. His study in Paleontology focuses on Structural basin, Forearc and Subduction. His Structural basin research includes elements of Quaternary and Transect.

His Petrology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Fluid dynamics, Geothermal gradient, Stylolite and Permeability. The concepts of his Cretaceous study are interwoven with issues in Thermochronology, Permian, Stress field and Continental margin. His Continental margin study is concerned with Tectonics in general.
