Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Plate tectonics
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Subduction

Eli A. Silver mainly investigates Seismology, Tectonics, Oceanic crust, Subduction and Petrology. Many of her studies on Seismology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Bathymetry. The concepts of her Tectonics study are interwoven with issues in Structural basin, Geologic record and Crust.

Her Crust research focuses on subjects like Seamount, which are linked to Basement. Her work is dedicated to discovering how Oceanic crust, Lithosphere are connected with Hydrothermal circulation and Triple junction and other disciplines. Her Subduction research focuses on Submarine pipeline and how it connects with Sedimentary rock, Sediment and Geomorphology.

Her most cited work include:

  • The slump origin of the 1998 Papua New Guinea Tsunami (254 citations)
  • Hawaiian-Emperor Chain and Its Relation to Cenozoic Circumpacific Tectonics (253 citations)
  • Back arc thrusting in the Eastern Sunda Arc, Indonesia: A consequence of arc‐continent collision (157 citations)

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

Eli A. Silver focuses on Seismology, Paleontology, Subduction, Tectonics and Accretionary wedge. Much of her study explores Seismology relationship to Submarine pipeline. In Subduction, Eli A. Silver works on issues like Petrology, which are connected to Hydrothermal circulation.

Eli A. Silver interconnects Structural basin, Geomorphology and Ridge in the investigation of issues within Tectonics. Her Accretionary wedge research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Collision zone, Wedge and Mud volcano. Her Oceanic crust study incorporates themes from Seafloor spreading and Crust.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (40.53%)
  • Paleontology (22.11%)
  • Subduction (21.58%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2009-2021)?

  • Seismology (40.53%)
  • Subduction (21.58%)
  • Paleontology (22.11%)

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

Eli A. Silver mostly deals with Seismology, Subduction, Paleontology, Submarine pipeline and Geomorphology. Her Seismology study which covers Fluid migration that intersects with Scale. Her Subduction research incorporates themes from Hydrogeology, Petrology and Plate tectonics.

The Paleontology study combines topics in areas such as Triple junction and Edge. Her Submarine pipeline study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Backscatter, Erosion and Peninsula. Her Facies study in the realm of Geomorphology connects with subjects such as New guinea.

Between 2009 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • A shallow subsurface controlled release facility in Bozeman, Montana, USA, for testing near surface CO2 detection techniques and transport models (147 citations)
  • Crustal Structure of the Molucca Sea Collision Zone, Indonesia (70 citations)
  • Collision processes in the northern Molucca Sea (69 citations)

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

  • Plate tectonics
  • Sedimentary rock
  • Subduction

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Subduction, Paleontology, Oceanography and Petrology. Her Seismology research includes themes of Triple junction and Geophysics. Eli A. Silver works mostly in the field of Subduction, limiting it down to topics relating to Plate tectonics and, in certain cases, Submarine pipeline and Thrust fault, as a part of the same area of interest.

Her work on Neogene, Crust and Clastic rock as part of general Paleontology study is frequently connected to Closure and Context, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. Her Oceanography research incorporates elements of Ophiolite, Continental margin, Oceanic basin and Oceanic crust. Her work deals with themes such as Fault, Fault trace, Pockmark and Forearc, which intersect with Petrology.
