His primary areas of investigation include Mineralogy, Electron backscatter diffraction, Misorientation, Grain boundary and Microstructure. His Mineralogy study combines topics in areas such as Nucleation, Crystal twinning, Peléan eruption, Magma and Dense-rock equivalent. His research integrates issues of Deformation mechanism, Porphyroblast, Coalescence and Scanning electron microscope in his study of Electron backscatter diffraction.
His studies in Misorientation integrate themes in fields like Grain Boundary Sliding, Geometry, Recrystallization, Quartz and Dislocation creep. His work deals with themes such as Cathode ray and Diffraction, which intersect with Quartz. In Grain boundary, David J. Prior works on issues like Grain size, which are connected to Olivine, Spinel, Deep-focus earthquake and Lithosphere.
David J. Prior mainly investigates Electron backscatter diffraction, Mineralogy, Misorientation, Microstructure and Grain boundary. His Electron backscatter diffraction research includes elements of Scanning electron microscope, Grain size, Dislocation creep and Deformation. David J. Prior has researched Dislocation creep in several fields, including Geochemistry and Diffusion creep.
His Mineralogy course of study focuses on Mylonite and Fault. His Misorientation research focuses on subjects like Grain Boundary Sliding, which are linked to Subgrain rotation recrystallization. David J. Prior has included themes like Crystallite, Condensed matter physics, Grain growth and Recrystallization in his Grain boundary study.
David J. Prior mainly focuses on Electron backscatter diffraction, Seismology, Mineralogy, Anisotropy and Slip. His Electron backscatter diffraction research incorporates elements of Dislocation creep and Misorientation, Grain boundary. His Dislocation creep research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Deformation mechanism and Subgrain rotation recrystallization.
In the subject of general Seismology, his work in Normal fault and Rift is often linked to New guinea, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His work in the fields of Mineralogy, such as Minor element, overlaps with other areas such as Transmission. His Anisotropy research focuses on Deformation and how it connects with Magnitude, Strain, Strain rate and Diffraction.
