Fellow of the Geological Society of America
Mihai N. Ducea mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Crust, Subduction, Batholith and Zircon. His Geochemistry research includes elements of Granulite and Metamorphic facies. His studies in Crust integrate themes in fields like Mantle and Continental arc.
His study looks at the intersection of Mantle and topics like Lithosphere with Continental crust. His Subduction research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Petrology and Earth science. His studies deal with areas such as Geochronology, Ordovician, Pluton and Terrane as well as Zircon.
His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Subduction, Paleontology, Zircon and Crust. The Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Batholith and Magmatism. His Subduction study combines topics in areas such as Metamorphism, Lithosphere and Earth science.
His work on Cretaceous, Cenozoic, Provenance and Thermochronology as part of general Paleontology study is frequently linked to Arc, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Zircon course of study focuses on Terrane and Gondwana. His Crust study which covers Petrology that intersects with Partial melting.
Geochemistry, Subduction, Mantle, Paleontology and Crust are his primary areas of study. Zircon, Geochronology, Igneous rock, Mafic and Continental crust are subfields of Geochemistry in which his conducts study. His work carried out in the field of Subduction brings together such families of science as Petrology, Lithosphere, Magmatism and Transition zone.
Mihai N. Ducea studied Mantle and Batholith that intersect with Flat slab subduction, Eclogite and Farallon Plate. His Paleontology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Elevation and Plateau. His Crust research includes themes of Passive margin, Continental collision, Back-arc basin and Ultramafic rock.
His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Subduction, Arc, Paleontology and Permian. In his research, he undertakes multidisciplinary study on Geochemistry and Rollback. His Subduction research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lithosphere, Igneous rock and Continental crust.
His Lithosphere research incorporates themes from Petrology and Magmatism. When carried out as part of a general Paleontology research project, his work on Pluton is frequently linked to work in Desert, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. He has researched Mafic in several fields, including Ophiolite, Diorite, Mantle and Crust.
