1986 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
1986 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
His main research concerns Geochemistry, Magma, Skaergaard intrusion, Mineralogy and Basalt. His work on Felsic as part of general Geochemistry study is frequently linked to Layering, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His work on Magma chamber as part of general Magma research is frequently linked to Fractionation, bridging the gap between disciplines.
His Skaergaard intrusion study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Chilled margin and Layered intrusion. His study brings together the fields of Thermal conductivity and Mineralogy. His work in Basalt covers topics such as Hotspot which are related to areas like Plate tectonics, Guyot, Seamount, Archipelago and Tectonics.
Alexander R. McBirney mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Magma, Basalt, Volcano and Skaergaard intrusion. Much of his study explores Geochemistry relationship to Plagioclase. His research integrates issues of Pyroxene, Mineralogy, Petrology and Igneous differentiation in his study of Magma.
His studies in Basalt integrate themes in fields like Archipelago, Olivine, Volcanic rock, Asthenosphere and Hotspot. His Volcano study also includes fields such as
Alexander R. McBirney mostly deals with Geochemistry, Mafic, Magma, Skaergaard intrusion and Igneous rock. His Geochemistry study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Volcanism. The various areas that he examines in his Mafic study include Metasomatism and Mineralogy.
His Magma study which covers Pyroxene that intersects with Ilmenite and Magnetite. His Igneous rock research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Regional science, Maturity and Mineral resource classification. His Basalt research incorporates themes from Trace element, Petrology and Cretaceous.
His primary areas of investigation include Mafic, Geochemistry, Pyroxene, Magma and Solubility. His work on Mantle and Basalt as part of general Geochemistry study is frequently connected to Mantle plume, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His Pyroxene research includes elements of Felsic, Metasomatism, Plagioclase, Gabbro and Ilmenite.
His Magma study focuses on Skaergaard intrusion in particular. His Solubility research incorporates elements of Aqueous solution, Analytical chemistry, Mineralogy, Melt inclusions and Aluminosilicate.
