His primary scientific interests are in Geomorphology, Seismology, Continental margin, Sedimentary rock and Facies. His Geomorphology study frequently involves adjacent topics like Paleontology. The concepts of his Seismology study are interwoven with issues in Canyon, Submarine pipeline and Holocene.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Continental shelf and Quaternary in addition to Continental margin. His work carried out in the field of Sedimentary rock brings together such families of science as Sedimentary depositional environment and Sediment. His work deals with themes such as Sand dune stabilization, Bedform and Contourite, which intersect with Facies.
His primary scientific interests are in Geomorphology, Turbidite, Paleontology, Oceanography and Holocene. His Geomorphology study combines topics in areas such as Geochemistry and Quaternary. The Turbidite study combines topics in areas such as Canyon, Passive margin, Pleistocene and Turbidity current.
In his research, Late Miocene is intimately related to Sedimentary rock, which falls under the overarching field of Oceanography. His study in Holocene is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Glacial period, Interglacial, Subduction and Continental margin. C. Hans Nelson has included themes like Continental shelf and Sea level in his Continental margin study.
His main research concerns Paleontology, Turbidite, Holocene, Turbidity current and Continental shelf. In general Paleontology, his work in Interglacial, Glacial period, Pleistocene and Contourite is often linked to Margin linking many areas of study. His Turbidite research entails a greater understanding of Geomorphology.
C. Hans Nelson is involved in the study of Holocene that focuses on Paleoseismology in particular. His studies deal with areas such as Hemipelagic sediment, Tectonics, Continental margin and Facies as well as Turbidity current. His Continental shelf research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Glacier and Ice sheet.
C. Hans Nelson mostly deals with Holocene, Continental shelf, Paleontology, Turbidity current and Continental margin. His study on Holocene is covered under Oceanography. His Continental shelf research incorporates themes from Glacier, Bottom water, Interglacial and Ice sheet.
C. Hans Nelson does research in Paleontology, focusing on Glacial period specifically. His Turbidity current research incorporates elements of Seismology, Subduction and Turbidite, Hemipelagic sediment. C. Hans Nelson combines subjects such as Submarine pipeline, Physical geography, Earth system science and Natural hazard with his study of Paleoseismology.
