Frank McDermott focuses on Stalagmite, Calcite, Geochemistry, Trace element and Cave. The Stalagmite study combines topics in areas such as Speleothem, Radiocarbon dating, Proxy and Interglacial. His work in Speleothem covers topics such as Paleontology which are related to areas like Archaeology and Neanderthal.
His Geochemistry research includes themes of Adakite and Mantle wedge. His Adakite research focuses on subjects like Crust, which are linked to Volcanic rock. His research integrates issues of Physical geography and Precipitation in his study of Cave.
His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Speleothem, Climatology, Stalagmite and Holocene. His Geochemistry research incorporates elements of Subduction, Mantle wedge and Island arc. His research in Speleothem intersects with topics in Younger Dryas, Oceanography, Ice core and Quaternary.
His Climatology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both δ18O and Teleconnection, Precipitation. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Stalagmite, Trace element and Atmospheric sciences is strongly linked to Calcite. His study explores the link between Holocene and topics such as Physical geography that cross with problems in Climate change.
Frank McDermott spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Climatology, Water quality, Aquifer and Renewable energy. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Speleothem, Mediterranean climate, Batholith and Isotopes of carbon. His Climatology research focuses on Teleconnection and how it connects with Solar energy.
His Aquifer research focuses on Bedrock and how it relates to Paleozoic, Arsenic contamination of groundwater and Hydrology. His Groundwater study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Basalt, Igneous rock and Terrane. His study in the field of Weather Research and Forecasting Model and Wind speed is also linked to topics like Always true, Photovoltaic power generation and Variable.
His primary areas of study are Environmental chemistry, Soil water, Water quality, Cave and Archaeology. Frank McDermott has included themes like Skull, Pleistocene, Taxon, Homo heidelbergensis and Homo floresiensis in his Cave study. His work on Human evolution and Homo rhodesiensis is typically connected to Limiting and DNA as part of general Archaeology study, connecting several disciplines of science.
Frank McDermott conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Limiting and Stalagmite through his works. His Stalagmite course of study focuses on Seasonality and Holocene. His studies in Holocene integrate themes in fields like Glacial period and Paleoclimatology.
