His primary areas of investigation include Fault, Seismology, Volcano, Massif and Graben. His Fault research incorporates elements of Deformation, Subduction and Geophysics. His Seismology study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Dome.
His studies in Volcano integrate themes in fields like Petrology and Rift zone. His Massif research integrates issues from African Plate and Lithosphere. Olivier Merle combines subjects such as Foreland basin, Mantle and Crust with his study of Lithosphere.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Volcano, Caldera, Petrology and Paleontology. His work on Seismology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Crust. His study in the field of Magma also crosses realms of Collapse, Intrusion and Flank.
His study in Caldera is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Resurgent dome, Magma chamber, Basalt and Volcanic rock. Olivier Merle works mostly in the field of Paleontology, limiting it down to topics relating to Geomorphology and, in certain cases, Denudation, as a part of the same area of interest. Olivier Merle has researched Lithosphere in several fields, including Volcanism and Foreland basin.
His primary scientific interests are in Seismology, Volcano, Caldera, Lithosphere and Resurgent dome. His Volcano research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mechanics and Crust. As a member of one scientific family, Olivier Merle mostly works in the field of Caldera, focusing on Magma chamber and, on occasion, Fault scarp and Basalt.
His Lithosphere research includes elements of Rift and Oceanic crust. His research integrates issues of Dome and Graben in his study of Resurgent dome. His Magma research incorporates themes from Volcanism, Petrology and Volcanic rock.
Olivier Merle mainly focuses on Seismology, Lithosphere, Ridge, Divergent boundary and Plate tectonics. His work on Volcano and Magma as part of general Seismology study is frequently linked to Impact crater, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Magma study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Volcanism, Underplating, Petrology and Oceanic crust.
His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Crust and Petrology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Tectonics and Rift in addition to Ridge. Resurgent dome is closely attributed to Caldera in his study.
