His primary areas of study are Subduction, Seismology, Holocene, Tectonic subsidence and Oceanography. His studies in Subduction integrate themes in fields like Natural, Indian ocean and Paleoseismology. Brian F. Atwater studied Holocene and Quaternary that intersect with Far East.
His Oceanography research includes elements of Glacial period and Archaeology. Brian F. Atwater usually deals with Tsunami earthquake and limits it to topics linked to Seismic moment and Shore. He has included themes like Intertidal zone, Sea level and Geomorphology in his Paleontology study.
His primary scientific interests are in Oceanography, Subduction, Seismology, Holocene and Paleontology. His work on Bay, Estuary and Shore as part of general Oceanography study is frequently linked to British Virgin Islands, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Shore research includes themes of Archaeology and Sea level.
His Subduction study incorporates themes from Sill and Plate tectonics. His Holocene research focuses on subjects like Quaternary, which are linked to Far East, Paleoclimatology and Glacial period. His work on Range, Clastic rock and Radiocarbon dating as part of general Paleontology research is frequently linked to Tectonic subsidence and Trench, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.
Brian F. Atwater mostly deals with Oceanography, Seismology, Subduction, Paleontology and Geomorphology. The Shore, Indian ocean and Acropora research Brian F. Atwater does as part of his general Oceanography study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Biogeosciences and British Virgin Islands, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His work carried out in the field of Seismology brings together such families of science as Turbidite, Tributary, Quaternary and Turbidity current.
His Subduction course of study focuses on Holocene and Flooding. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Reef and Brain coral. Many of his research projects under Geomorphology are closely connected to Numerical models with Numerical models, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.
Brian F. Atwater mainly focuses on Shore, Oceanography, Holocene, Paleontology and Risk assessment. In the field of Shore, his study on Overwash overlaps with subjects such as British Virgin Islands. His Oceanography study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Ridge.
The various areas that Brian F. Atwater examines in his Holocene study include Seismology, Turbidite, Turbidity current and Submarine canyon. His Paleontology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Fringing reef, Reef, Coral and Sea level. Brian F. Atwater integrates many fields, such as Risk assessment and engineering, in his works.
