Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Anisotropy
  • Ecology

Andrew T. Fisher focuses on Petrology, Oceanic crust, Hydrothermal circulation, Crust and Geophysics. His work deals with themes such as Drilling, Thrust fault, Seafloor spreading, Geomorphology and Fluid dynamics, which intersect with Petrology. As part of one scientific family, Andrew T. Fisher deals mainly with the area of Drilling, narrowing it down to issues related to the Borehole, and often Seawater.

His research integrates issues of Lithosphere and Mid-ocean ridge in his study of Oceanic crust. His Hydrothermal circulation study also includes

  • Convection which is related to area like Bathymetry,
  • Geothermal gradient that connect with fields like Rift. In his research, Biotope and Geologic Sediments is intimately related to Basalt, which falls under the overarching field of Crust.

His most cited work include:

  • Quantifying surface water–groundwater interactions using time series analysis of streambed thermal records: Method development (382 citations)
  • Permeability within basaltic oceanic crust (297 citations)
  • Hydrothermal recharge and discharge across 50 km guided by seamounts on a young ridge flank. (195 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Andrew T. Fisher mainly investigates Petrology, Oceanic crust, Hydrology, Hydrothermal circulation and Seafloor spreading. His study looks at the relationship between Petrology and topics such as Drilling, which overlap with Geomorphology and Seawater. His Oceanic crust study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Geophysics, Crust, Igneous rock and Basalt, Mid-ocean ridge.

His work carried out in the field of Crust brings together such families of science as Basement and Lithosphere. His Hydrothermal circulation research incorporates elements of Volcano, Geochemistry, Seamount and Convection. His Seafloor spreading research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Seismology, Outcrop and Heat flux.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Petrology (23.79%)
  • Oceanic crust (21.56%)
  • Hydrology (18.59%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Groundwater recharge (15.24%)
  • Hydrology (18.59%)
  • Hydrothermal circulation (17.84%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Groundwater recharge, Hydrology, Hydrothermal circulation, Hydrology and Geophysics. The various areas that Andrew T. Fisher examines in his Hydrothermal circulation study include Geochemistry, Outcrop, Crust, Seafloor spreading and Petrology. His Crust study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Fluid dynamics, Advection, Seamount and Oceanic crust.

His Seafloor spreading study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Basalt. His Petrology study incorporates themes from Hydrogeology, Effective porosity and Tectonophysics. His work deals with themes such as Subduction and Permeability, which intersect with Geophysics.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • High geothermal heat flux measured below the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. (88 citations)
  • WISSARD at Subglacial Lake Whillans, West Antarctica: scientific operations and initial observations (79 citations)
  • Nutrient Loading through Submarine Groundwater Discharge and Phytoplankton Growth in Monterey Bay, CA (44 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Thermodynamics
  • Groundwater

Hydrothermal circulation, Seafloor spreading, Oceanic crust, Crust and Geochemistry are his primary areas of study. His work investigates the relationship between Hydrothermal circulation and topics such as Outcrop that intersect with problems in Discharge and Volcano. As a part of the same scientific study, Andrew T. Fisher usually deals with the Seafloor spreading, concentrating on Basalt and frequently concerns with Submarine pipeline, Mining feasibility study and Lithosphere.

His research in Oceanic crust intersects with topics in Isotopes of carbon, Carbon cycle, Petrology, Advection and Aquifer. His Petrology research incorporates themes from Fluid dynamics, Hydrogeology, Geophysics and Seamount. He interconnects Deep sea, Sediment, Total organic carbon and Ridge in the investigation of issues within Geochemistry.
