His primary scientific interests are in Paleontology, Ophiolite, Geochemistry, Massif and Gondwana. His studies deal with areas such as Nappe and Lithosphere as well as Ophiolite. Many of his studies on Geochemistry apply to Tectonics as well.
He regularly ties together related areas like Allochthon in his Massif studies. His Gondwana research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Terrane and Continental margin. The study incorporates disciplines such as Suture and Ordovician in addition to Terrane.
Ricardo Arenas focuses on Geochemistry, Massif, Paleontology, Terrane and Ophiolite. His Geochemistry research focuses on subjects like Granulite, which are linked to Gabbro. His research integrates issues of Tectonics, Shear zone, Continental crust, Structural geology and Geomorphology in his study of Massif.
His study in Gondwana, Subduction, Paleozoic, Devonian and Nappe falls under the purview of Paleontology. He has researched Terrane in several fields, including Suture and Late Devonian extinction, Carboniferous. His Ophiolite research integrates issues from Rodinia, Basalt and Protolith.
His main research concerns Geochemistry, Massif, Ophiolite, Gondwana and Paleontology. His Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Eclogite and Late Devonian extinction. Ricardo Arenas combines subjects such as Suture, Mafic, Devonian and Paleozoic with his study of Ophiolite.
Ricardo Arenas has included themes like Siliciclastic and Craton in his Gondwana study. His study in Paleontology concentrates on Terrane, Cadomian Orogeny and Continental crust. His Zircon research includes themes of Metamorphism and Provenance.
Gondwana, Paleontology, Craton, Siliciclastic and Tectonics are his primary areas of study. The Gondwana study combines topics in areas such as Ophiolite, Mafic and Ultramafic rock. His research in Volcanic arc, Back-arc basin and Sedimentary basin are components of Paleontology.
His research investigates the connection between Tectonics and topics such as Series that intersect with issues in Massif. His Massif study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gneiss, Provenance and Terrane. His work carried out in the field of Gneiss brings together such families of science as Metamorphism and Zircon.
