Marcelo Assumpção mainly focuses on Seismology, Lithosphere, Crust, Craton and Intraplate earthquake. His Seismology study incorporates themes from Amplitude and Continental shelf. His Lithosphere research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Plume and Mineralogy.
In his research, Shear zone is intimately related to Group velocity, which falls under the overarching field of Craton. His Intraplate earthquake research includes themes of Induced seismicity and Plate tectonics. His work deals with themes such as Asthenosphere, South American Plate and Continental margin, which intersect with Induced seismicity.
His primary scientific interests are in Seismology, Induced seismicity, Structural basin, Intraplate earthquake and Lithosphere. Seismology is closely attributed to Crust in his research. In his work, Shear zone is strongly intertwined with Lineament, which is a subfield of Induced seismicity.
In his research on the topic of Structural basin, Aquifer is strongly related with Water well. Marcelo Assumpção combines subjects such as Rift, South American Plate, Compression and Continental margin with his study of Intraplate earthquake. The Lithosphere study combines topics in areas such as Seismic tomography, Fold and Plume.
His primary areas of investigation include Seismology, Induced seismicity, Seismic tomography, Geomorphology and Structural basin. His study connects Continental shelf and Seismology. His Seismic tomography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Subduction, Lithosphere and Crust.
His study looks at the relationship between Geomorphology and topics such as Receiver function, which overlap with Wetland, Inversion and Surface wave. He interconnects Geochemistry and Water well in the investigation of issues within Structural basin. Marcelo Assumpção has included themes like Attenuation, Intensity and Foreshock in his Intraplate earthquake study.
His primary areas of study are Seismology, Tomography, Seismic tomography, P wave and Induced seismicity. His work on Intraplate earthquake, Probabilistic seismic hazard analysis and Structural geology as part of general Seismology research is often related to Margin and Waveform inversion, thus linking different fields of science. Marcelo Assumpção has researched Tomography in several fields, including Block, Lithosphere, Mantle flow, Assemblage and Gondwana.
The subject of his Seismic tomography research is within the realm of Paleontology.
