2013 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Paleontology, Seismology, Tectonics, Geomorphology and Subduction. His Paleontology research focuses on Plateau and how it relates to Structural geology. His Seismology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gneiss and Far East.
His Tectonics research incorporates elements of Shear and Mantle. The concepts of his Geomorphology study are interwoven with issues in Metamorphic rock, Crust, Plate tectonics, Shear zone and Lithosphere. His work on Blueschist as part of general Subduction study is frequently connected to Metamorphic core complex and Detachment fault, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.
His primary areas of investigation include Paleontology, Seismology, Tectonics, Fault and Geomorphology. In his research, Structural geology and Proterozoic is intimately related to Plateau, which falls under the overarching field of Paleontology. In his work, Plate tectonics and Mantle is strongly intertwined with Crust, which is a subfield of Seismology.
His research on Suture also deals with topics like
Paleontology, Cenozoic, Tectonics, Geophysics and Plateau are his primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Permian, Geochemistry, Thermochronology and Mesozoic in addition to Cenozoic. His research investigates the connection with Mesozoic and areas like Foreland basin which intersect with concerns in Shear zone and Geologic map.
His Tectonics research integrates issues from Albedo and Geodesy. His Structural basin study which covers Zircon that intersects with Geochronology. His research in Lithosphere focuses on subjects like Terrane, which are connected to Fault.
An Yin mainly focuses on Paleontology, Cenozoic, Structural basin, Geochemistry and Tectonics. His study on Paleontology is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Plateau. His study in Cenozoic is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Earth science and China.
His study in the field of Mesozoic and Neogene also crosses realms of Collision. Geochemistry connects with themes related to Paleogene in his study. His Tectonics study incorporates themes from Fault and Compression.
