The Granada Group: Antonio Sánchez-Navas

Antonio Sánchez-Navas has been doing research in the fields of crystallography, mineralogy and petrology. The publication list of mineralogy includes papers in American Mineralogist, European Journal of Mineralogy, Canadian Mineralogist y Clays and Clay minerals. His research activities focussed on the field of crystallography have been published in Crystal Growth and Design and Journal of Crystal Growth. Publications about geochemistry include papers in important international journals as Geochimica et Cosmochimica y Chemical Geology; about Geology, in journals as Geology, Journal of Geology, Journal of Metamorphic Geology and Terranova; about sedimentology in Sedimentology; about environmental sciences and cultural heritage in Journal of Geophysical Research, Atmospheric Environment, Geoderma, Archaeometry and Journal of Cultural Heritage. He has worked as scientific and technical advisor of the Scientific Instrumentation Center of the University of Granada (1989-present). Among the works carried out, it is worth mentioning the development of the backscattered electron diffraction (EBSD) for the textural analysis of geological materials in our laboratories.
