His primary areas of investigation include Subduction, Petrology, Geochemistry, Eclogitization and Ophiolite. His Subduction study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Lithosphere and Geomorphology. His work on Metamorphic rock as part of general Petrology study is frequently linked to High pressure, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
His Oceanic crust research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Detachment fault, Mantle wedge and Continental crust. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Suture and Obduction. His Obduction research integrates issues from Geophysics and Cretaceous.
His main research concerns Subduction, Geochemistry, Petrology, Ophiolite and Metamorphic rock. His research investigates the link between Subduction and topics such as Lithosphere that cross with problems in Plate tectonics and Crust. His Geochemistry research includes themes of Blueschist, Eclogite and Underplating.
His Petrology research includes elements of Nappe, Slab, Geophysics, Shear zone and Accretionary wedge. His Ophiolite study combines topics in areas such as Semail Ophiolite, Cretaceous and Continental margin. His studies deal with areas such as Chlorite, Tectonics, Continental collision and Zircon as well as Metamorphic rock.
Philippe Agard focuses on Subduction, Geochemistry, Petrology, Metamorphic rock and Ophiolite. His Subduction study is concerned with Paleontology in general. His Geochemistry study which covers Metamorphic facies that intersects with Oceanic crust.
The concepts of his Petrology study are interwoven with issues in Slab and Mantle wedge. The Metamorphic rock study combines topics in areas such as Blueschist, Metamorphism and Chlorite. Philippe Agard focuses mostly in the field of Ophiolite, narrowing it down to topics relating to Semail Ophiolite and, in certain cases, Orogeny, Peridotite, Submarine pipeline and Obduction.
His primary scientific interests are in Subduction, Metamorphic rock, Geochemistry, Seamount and Metamorphic facies. His work carried out in the field of Subduction brings together such families of science as Metamorphism, Petrology and Ophiolite. The study incorporates disciplines such as Slab and Eclogite in addition to Petrology.
As part of his studies on Metamorphic rock, Philippe Agard often connects relevant subjects like Blueschist. His research investigates the connection between Geochemistry and topics such as Shear zone that intersect with issues in Lithosphere, Nappe, Shear and Coesite. His Seamount research incorporates elements of Seismology, Large earthquakes and Massif.
