Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Seismology
  • Plate tectonics

Emile A. Okal mainly investigates Seismology, Tsunami earthquake, Seismic moment, Subduction and Lithosphere. His studies link Rayleigh wave with Seismology. Emile A. Okal has included themes like Submarine landslide, Magnitude and Bathymetry in his Tsunami earthquake study.

His research in Seismic moment focuses on subjects like Aftershock, which are connected to Seismic gap and Geodesy. His study on Interplate earthquake is often connected to Port as part of broader study in Subduction. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Pacific Plate, Mantle and Hotspot.

His most cited work include:

  • Metastable mantle phase transformations and deep earthquakes in subducting oceanic lithosphere (420 citations)
  • Seismology: speed and size of the Sumatra earthquake. (409 citations)
  • The slump origin of the 1998 Papua New Guinea Tsunami (254 citations)

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

His main research concerns Seismology, Seismic moment, Mantle, Oceanography and Subduction. His Seismology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Amplitude and Rayleigh wave. In his study, Epicenter is strongly linked to Focal mechanism, which falls under the umbrella field of Seismic moment.

His work carried out in the field of Mantle brings together such families of science as Seismogram and Geodesy. His study in Subduction is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Slab and Transition zone. His Induced seismicity study incorporates themes from Intraplate earthquake, Tectonics, Lithosphere and Plate tectonics.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (71.12%)
  • Seismic moment (13.68%)
  • Mantle (11.25%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Seismology (71.12%)
  • Tsunami earthquake (10.03%)
  • Landslide (8.21%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Seismology, Tsunami earthquake, Landslide, Oceanography and Moment. The study incorporates disciplines such as Amplitude and Magnitude in addition to Seismology. The concepts of his Amplitude study are interwoven with issues in Seismometer and Seismogram.

His research investigates the connection between Tsunami earthquake and topics such as Indian ocean that intersect with problems in Subduction. His study in the field of Pacific ocean also crosses realms of Eastern mediterranean. His study looks at the relationship between Moment and fields such as Energy, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Source parameter inversion for recent great earthquakes from a decade-long observation of global gravity fields (70 citations)
  • Hotspots: The First 25 Years (35 citations)
  • The January 26, 2001 Bhuj Earthquake and the Diffuse Western Boundary of the Indian Plate (30 citations)

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

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Seismology
  • Oceanography

Emile A. Okal focuses on Seismology, Seismogram, Geophysics, Tsunami wave and Moment. His Seismology study frequently involves adjacent topics like Amplitude. His Seismogram study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hellenic arc, Duration and Large earthquakes.

His Geophysics research includes themes of Earth's internal heat budget, Petrology and Plate tectonics. His studies deal with areas such as Tsunami hazard and Oceanography, Shore as well as Tsunami wave. His Moment research incorporates themes from Mode, Excited state, Component, Series and Event.
