Seismology, Rift, Tectonics, Paleontology and Slip are his primary areas of study. As part of his studies on Seismology, Zvi Garfunkel often connects relevant subjects like Period. His work deals with themes such as Seismic moment, Induced seismicity, Convergence zone and Latitude, which intersect with Rift.
His work on Thrust fault is typically connected to Clockwise and Reflection as part of general Tectonics study, connecting several disciplines of science. His work in the fields of Paleontology, such as Structural basin, Metamorphism and Seafloor spreading, overlaps with other areas such as Gravity anomaly. Zvi Garfunkel incorporates Slip and Dead sea in his research.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Seismology, Paleontology, Geochemistry, Tectonics and Dead sea. His work on Seismology deals in particular with Plate tectonics, Fault, Transform fault, Rift and Strike-slip tectonics. His Fault study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Submarine canyon and Continental margin.
Zvi Garfunkel has included themes like Neogene, Seafloor spreading, Trough and Graben in his Rift study. In most of his Paleontology studies, his work intersects topics such as Geomorphology. His work on Lithosphere as part of general Tectonics study is frequently linked to Clockwise, bridging the gap between disciplines.
Zvi Garfunkel mostly deals with Seismology, Dead sea, Paleontology, Tectonics and Lithosphere. His study in the fields of Structural basin, Rift, Lithospheric flexure and Foreland basin under the domain of Paleontology overlaps with other disciplines such as ANDROS. In Rift, he works on issues like Radiogenic nuclide, which are connected to Volcanism.
His study in Plate tectonics and Strike-slip tectonics are all subfields of Tectonics. His Plate tectonics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mantle and Continental margin. His study looks at the relationship between Lithosphere and topics such as Geophysics, which overlap with Trough.
Zvi Garfunkel focuses on Seismology, Paleontology, Continental margin, Fault and Plate tectonics. His research in the fields of Transform fault overlaps with other disciplines such as Dead sea. As part of his studies on Paleontology, Zvi Garfunkel often connects relevant areas like Submarine pipeline.
Zvi Garfunkel combines subjects such as Structural basin, Fault block, Transtension, Shearing and Transpression with his study of Continental margin. His study in Fault is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Tectonics, Lithosphere, Crust, Mesoscale meteorology and Lithology. His Plate tectonics study frequently links to other fields, such as Sinistral and dextral.
