2014 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
Michael O. Garcia mainly investigates Geochemistry, Basalt, Volcano, Mantle and Incompatible element. Geochemistry is closely attributed to Mantle wedge in his research. His study in Basalt is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Volcanic rock, Magma chamber, Olivine and Radiogenic nuclide.
His Volcano research incorporates elements of Earth science, Seamount and Rift zone. The Mantle study combines topics in areas such as Ocean island basalt, Oceanic crust and Mantle plume. His Incompatible element study incorporates themes from Trace element and Subaerial.
Geochemistry, Volcano, Basalt, Mantle and Lava are his primary areas of study. His biological study deals with issues like Mantle plume, which deal with fields such as Hotspot. In his study, Seismology is inextricably linked to Rift zone, which falls within the broad field of Volcano.
Michael O. Garcia has researched Basalt in several fields, including Mineralogy, Igneous rock and Seamount. His Mantle research incorporates themes from Trace element, Isotopes of oxygen, Crust and Oceanic crust. His Lava research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Subaerial, Magma chamber and Igneous differentiation.
Michael O. Garcia mainly focuses on Volcano, Geochemistry, Mantle, Basalt and Olivine. Michael O. Garcia usually deals with Volcano and limits it to topics linked to Petrology and Magma. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Mantle plume and Rift zone.
His studies in Mantle integrate themes in fields like Oceanic crust and Crust. His Basalt research includes themes of Magma chamber and Phenocryst. His research in Olivine intersects with topics in Zircon, Igneous differentiation and Forsterite.
His primary scientific interests are in Volcano, Basalt, Mantle, Olivine and Paleontology. His Mantle research is within the category of Geochemistry. His study explores the link between Geochemistry and topics such as Mantle plume that cross with problems in Earth science.
His Olivine research integrates issues from Phenocryst, Petrology, Igneous differentiation and Forsterite. His research integrates issues of Lava, Mineralogy, Magma and Fractional crystallization in his study of Igneous differentiation. His work in the fields of Paleontology, such as Rift zone, intersects with other areas such as Perspective.
