Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Basalt
  • Tectonics

Michel Faure spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Paleontology, Paleozoic, Metamorphism and Seismology. Continental margin is closely connected to Subduction in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Geochemistry. His Paleozoic research incorporates themes from Metamorphic rock, Sedimentary rock, Ordovician, Late Devonian extinction and Devonian.

His research in Metamorphism intersects with topics in Orogeny, Eclogite and Continental collision. He interconnects Paleomagnetism, Shear zone and Carboniferous in the investigation of issues within Permian. His studies deal with areas such as Migmatite, Craton and Extensional tectonics as well as Massif.

His most cited work include:

  • Palaeozoic tectonic evolution of the Tianshan belt, NW China (313 citations)
  • The building of south China : Collision of Yangzi and cathaysia blocks, problems and tentative answers (305 citations)
  • The building of south China : Collision of Yangzi and cathaysia blocks, problems and tentative answers (305 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Massif, Paleontology, Seismology and Pluton. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Lineation and Shear zone. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Nappe, Migmatite, Carboniferous, Geomorphology and Extensional tectonics.

His Paleontology study is mostly concerned with Paleozoic, Permian, Subduction, Devonian and Cretaceous. Seismology is closely attributed to Mesozoic in his work. The Pluton study which covers Petrology that intersects with Crust and Continental crust.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geochemistry (56.57%)
  • Massif (46.80%)
  • Paleontology (44.11%)

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

  • Paleontology (44.11%)
  • Geochemistry (56.57%)
  • Massif (46.80%)

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

Michel Faure mainly investigates Paleontology, Geochemistry, Massif, Tectonics and Subduction. His study focuses on the intersection of Paleontology and fields such as Seismology with connections in the field of Shear. His Geochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Lineation and Pluton.

His Massif research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cretaceous, Migmatite, Sedimentary rock and Metamorphism, Petrology. His research integrates issues of Eclogite and Granulite in his study of Metamorphism. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Paleomagnetism under Tectonics, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Permian, Petrography, Amphibole and Sedimentary basin.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The South China block-Indochina collision: Where, when, and how? (170 citations)
  • Triassic tectonics of the southern margin of the South China Block (71 citations)
  • The Moldanubian Zone in the French Massif Central, Vosges/Schwarzwald and Bohemian Massif revisited: differences and similarities (53 citations)

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

  • Sedimentary rock
  • Tectonics
  • Basalt

His main research concerns Paleontology, Subduction, Geochemistry, Massif and Zircon. His Basement, Paleomagnetism, Craton and Orogeny study in the realm of Paleontology connects with subjects such as South china. Tectonics and Seismology are inextricably linked to his Subduction research.

His work focuses on many connections between Geochemistry and other disciplines, such as Pluton, that overlap with his field of interest in Lineation, Magmatism and Petrology. His Massif study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Metamorphic rock, Metamorphism and Cretaceous. The concepts of his Zircon study are interwoven with issues in Ophiolite, Mafic and Paleozoic.
