1985 - Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada
Lithosphere, Petrology, Subduction, Tectonics and Mantle are his primary areas of study. His research investigates the connection with Lithosphere and areas like Sedimentary basin which intersect with concerns in Volcanic passive margin. Christopher Beaumont has researched Petrology in several fields, including Crustal recycling, Continental crust, Denudation and Geomorphology.
His Subduction study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Nappe and Geophysics, Crust. His research on Tectonics concerns the broader Seismology. His research in Mantle intersects with topics in Shear zone and Open-channel flow.
His primary scientific interests are in Lithosphere, Petrology, Tectonics, Geophysics and Geomorphology. His research integrates issues of Subduction, Crust, Rift, Mantle and Continental margin in his study of Lithosphere. His Mantle research focuses on Shear zone and how it connects with Denudation, Main Central Thrust and Strain partitioning.
His studies in Petrology integrate themes in fields like Underplating, Craton, Continental crust and Terrane. His Tectonics research is classified as research in Seismology. He has included themes like Scale, Geometry, Plate tectonics, Oceanic crust and Geodynamics in his Geophysics study.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Petrology, Tectonics, Lithosphere, Geomorphology and Crust. His Petrology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Rift, Continental crust, Seafloor spreading, Continental margin and Terrane. His work deals with themes such as Fluid dynamics and Metamorphic rock, which intersect with Tectonics.
The concepts of his Lithosphere study are interwoven with issues in Craton, Breakup and Geophysics, Mantle. His research investigates the connection between Geomorphology and topics such as Paleontology that intersect with problems in Front. The Crust study combines topics in areas such as Subduction, Metamorphism, Shear zone, Geodynamics and Massif.
Tectonics, Petrology, Crust, Geomorphology and Geophysics are his primary areas of study. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Fault, Metamorphic rock and Mountain range. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Terrane under Metamorphic rock, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Open-channel flow, Foreland basin, Fold and Shear zone.
His work in Petrology tackles topics such as Continental crust which are related to areas like Underplating, Craton, Volcanic passive margin and Continental margin. His Crust research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Metamorphism and Subduction. Christopher Beaumont focuses mostly in the field of Orogeny, narrowing it down to topics relating to Earth science and, in certain cases, Paleontology.
