His main research concerns Paleontology, Paleozoic, Ophiolite, Terrane and Gondwana. José R. Martínez Catalán works in the field of Paleontology, namely Subduction. José R. Martínez Catalán focuses mostly in the field of Paleozoic, narrowing it down to topics relating to Ordovician and, in certain cases, Provenance.
He has included themes like Geochemistry, Devonian, Massif, Zircon and Lithosphere in his Ophiolite study. His studies link Suture with Terrane. His work in Gondwana addresses subjects such as Continental margin, which are connected to disciplines such as Accretionary complex.
His primary areas of study are Massif, Geochemistry, Paleontology, Terrane and Petrology. His work deals with themes such as Crenulation, Ophiolite, Structural geology and Thrust fault, which intersect with Massif. All of his Paleontology and Gondwana, Subduction, Suture, Paleozoic and Devonian investigations are sub-components of the entire Paleontology study.
As a member of one scientific family, José R. Martínez Catalán mostly works in the field of Gondwana, focusing on Continental margin and, on occasion, Laurentia and Accretionary complex. While the research belongs to areas of Suture, he spends his time largely on the problem of Orocline, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Strike-slip tectonics. His studies deal with areas such as Nappe, Shear zone and Crust as well as Petrology.
José R. Martínez Catalán focuses on Geochemistry, Zircon, Magnetic anomaly, Allochthon and Massif. His Geochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Nappe and Terrane. His Terrane study combines topics in areas such as Assemblage, Devonian, Ophiolite and Protolith.
His Zircon study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Provenance and Geochronology. His Allochthon research focuses on Petrology and how it connects with Shear zone and Sedimentary rock. His Massif research incorporates themes from Gondwana and Crust.
His primary scientific interests are in Seismology, Geochemistry, Extensional definition, Terrane and Allochthon. In his work, Evaporite and Sedimentary rock is strongly intertwined with Fold, which is a subfield of Seismology. Geochemistry is closely attributed to Nappe in his study.
The various areas that José R. Martínez Catalán examines in his Nappe study include Andalusite, Metamorphic rock, Orocline, Syncline and Paleozoic. His work is dedicated to discovering how Terrane, Passive margin are connected with Petrology and other disciplines. His Allochthon research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Metamorphism, Protolith, Massif, Devonian and Gondwana.
