His main research concerns Paleontology, Craton, Geochemistry, Gondwana and Proterozoic. His Craton research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Massif, Precambrian and Geochronology. His studies deal with areas such as Amphibole, Back-arc basin and Cretaceous as well as Geochemistry.
His Gondwana research incorporates elements of Subduction, Suture, Rodinia, Laurentia and Supercontinent. His Supercontinent study combines topics in areas such as Orogeny and Petrology. Umberto G. Cordani combines subjects such as Basement and Archean with his study of Proterozoic.
His primary areas of study are Geochemistry, Paleontology, Craton, Zircon and Geochronology. Geochemistry is closely attributed to Basement in his work. The Craton study combines topics in areas such as Laurentia, Gondwana and Proterozoic.
His studies in Gondwana integrate themes in fields like Subduction, Continental collision, Suture, Supercontinent and Petrology. His Zircon study incorporates themes from Provenance, Metamorphic facies, Pluton and Terrane. In his work, Metamorphic rock is strongly intertwined with Orogeny, which is a subfield of Precambrian.
Umberto G. Cordani mostly deals with Geochemistry, Craton, Zircon, Paleontology and Gondwana. His work in the fields of Geochemistry, such as Greenschist and Sedimentary basin, overlaps with other areas such as Amazonian. His Craton research includes elements of Metamorphism and Petrology.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Passive margin, Provenance, Pluton, Geochronology and Metamorphic facies in addition to Zircon. His Geochronology research includes themes of Radiochemistry, La icp ms, Proterozoic and Mc icp ms. His study involves Plate tectonics, Paleozoic and Laurentia, a branch of Paleontology.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Craton, Paleontology, Gondwana, Basement and Metamorphism. His Craton research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Geochemistry and Zircon. His Gondwana study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Crust, Paleozoic, Plate tectonics, Basalt and Magmatism.
His Plate tectonics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Rodinia and Supercontinent. Umberto G. Cordani has researched Basement in several fields, including Intraplate earthquake, Structural geology, Historical geology and Economic geology. His Metamorphism research incorporates themes from Gneiss and Granulite.
