His primary areas of study are Mantle, Lithosphere, Seismology, Subduction and Slab. Eugene D. Humphreys has included themes like Seismic wave, Igneous rock, Hotspot and Asthenosphere in his Mantle study. His Hotspot research includes themes of Petrology, Transition zone, Mantle convection and Mantle wedge.
His work on Lithosphere is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Crust. His research integrates issues of Mediterranean climate and Upwelling in his study of Seismology. His Slab research incorporates elements of Magmatism and Slab window.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Seismology, Mantle, Lithosphere, Crust and Geophysics. When carried out as part of a general Seismology research project, his work on Tectonics is frequently linked to work in Transverse plane, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. Eugene D. Humphreys has researched Mantle in several fields, including Seismic wave, Geomorphology, Mantle plume, Hotspot and Anisotropy.
His Lithosphere research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Geochemistry, Subduction, Oceanic crust and Magmatism. His Subduction research incorporates themes from Basin and range topography and USArray. The various areas that Eugene D. Humphreys examines in his Geophysics study include Petrology, Mantle convection and Mantle wedge.
His main research concerns Lithosphere, Mantle, Subduction, Seismology and Geochemistry. The Lithosphere study combines topics in areas such as Continental margin, Oceanic crust and Crust. As a part of the same scientific family, Eugene D. Humphreys mostly works in the field of Mantle, focusing on Mantle plume and, on occasion, Flood basalt.
His Subduction study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Craton, Petrology and Geomorphology. His Seismology research integrates issues from Slab and Mediterranean climate. His research in Geophysics intersects with topics in Mantle convection and Anisotropy.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Subduction, Mantle, Lithosphere, Craton and Seismology. His Subduction research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Geophysics, Geomorphology and USArray. His work deals with themes such as Mantle plume and Hotspot, which intersect with Mantle.
His Lithosphere research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Geochemistry, Crust and Oceanic crust. His research investigates the connection between Craton and topics such as Oceanic plateau that intersect with problems in Paleomagnetism, South American Plate and Forearc. Eugene D. Humphreys works mostly in the field of Seismology, limiting it down to concerns involving Slab and, occasionally, Mediterranean climate.
