Fellow of the Geological Society of America

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Probability distribution
  • Seismology

Eric L. Geist mainly investigates Seismology, Subduction, Tsunami earthquake, Landslide and Bathymetry. His work carried out in the field of Seismology brings together such families of science as Probabilistic logic and Geodesy. His work on Farallon Plate as part of general Subduction study is frequently linked to Trench and Schist, bridging the gap between disciplines.

The concepts of his Tsunami earthquake study are interwoven with issues in Seismic moment and Moment magnitude scale. His Landslide research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Continental shelf and Submarine pipeline. His work in Bathymetry addresses subjects such as Shore, which are connected to disciplines such as Rockfall and Debris.

His most cited work include:

  • Probabilistic analysis of tsunami hazards (224 citations)
  • The origin of summit basins of the Aleutian Ridge: Implications for block rotation of an arc massif (182 citations)
  • Probabilistic Tsunami Hazard Assessment at Seaside, Oregon, for Near- and Far-Field Seismic Sources (173 citations)

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

Eric L. Geist focuses on Seismology, Landslide, Subduction, Tsunami earthquake and Submarine landslide. His Seismology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Submarine pipeline and Bathymetry. He has researched Bathymetry in several fields, including Sedimentary rock, Debris and Shore.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Glacier, Continental shelf and Fault scarp. His study on Subduction is covered under Tectonics. His study looks at the intersection of Tsunami earthquake and topics like Tide gauge with Geodesy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (64.34%)
  • Landslide (18.18%)
  • Subduction (17.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Seismology (64.34%)
  • Landslide (18.18%)
  • Submarine landslide (12.59%)

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

Eric L. Geist mostly deals with Seismology, Landslide, Submarine landslide, Hazard and Oceanography. His work on Subduction, Tectonophysics and Tsunami earthquake as part of general Seismology research is frequently linked to Fault, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Subduction research incorporates elements of Probability distribution, Pareto distribution, Plate tectonics and Geodesy.

The Landslide study combines topics in areas such as Sedimentary basin, Moraine, Probabilistic method, Debris flow and Paleoseismology. His biological study deals with issues like Bathymetry, which deal with fields such as Cenozoic, Mass wasting, Escarpment and Geomorphology. His research in the fields of Fjord, Indian ocean and Submarine overlaps with other disciplines such as Mediterranean sea.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Probabilistic Tsunami Hazard Analysis: Multiple Sources and Global Applications (76 citations)
  • Source processes for the probabilistic assessment of tsunami hazards (48 citations)
  • Assessment of tsunami hazard to the U.S. Atlantic margin (47 citations)

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

  • Statistics
  • Probability distribution
  • Plate tectonics

Eric L. Geist mainly focuses on Seismology, Landslide, Probabilistic logic, Seafloor spreading and Tsunami earthquake. Seismology is closely attributed to Debris in his work. The Submarine landslide research Eric L. Geist does as part of his general Landslide study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Hazard, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

His work in Probabilistic logic tackles topics such as Tsunami hazard which are related to areas like Uncertainty analysis, Probabilistic method, Probabilistic framework and Tsunami wave. Structural basin, Submarine pipeline, Moment magnitude scale, Wave height and Geomorphology is closely connected to Current in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Tsunami earthquake. As a part of the same scientific study, Eric L. Geist usually deals with the Subduction, concentrating on Bathymetry and frequently concerns with Glacier.
