2011 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Crust, Lithosphere, Subduction and Mantle. His Seismology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Slab and Seismic tomography. Continental crust is the focus of his Crust research.
In Lithosphere, George Zandt works on issues like Partial melting, which are connected to Far East. George Zandt interconnects Magmatism, Basin and range topography and Plate tectonics in the investigation of issues within Subduction. George Zandt combines subjects such as Petrology and Mantle wedge with his study of Mantle.
Seismology, Crust, Lithosphere, Subduction and Mantle are his primary areas of study. He has included themes like Slab and Geophysics in his Seismology study. His research in Crust tackles topics such as Petrology which are related to areas like Eclogite.
The Lithosphere study combines topics in areas such as Shear, Plateau and Geomorphology. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Subduction, narrowing it down to issues related to the Seismic anisotropy, and often Shear wave splitting. His Mantle research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Downwelling, Volcanic arc, Mantle wedge and Mafic.
George Zandt mainly focuses on Subduction, Seismology, Lithosphere, Slab and Crust. Subduction is a subfield of Tectonics that George Zandt studies. His studies examine the connections between Seismology and genetics, as well as such issues in Geophysics, with regards to Mantle wedge.
His Lithosphere research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Geochemistry and Ultramafic rock. His Slab research includes themes of Tomography and Deformation. The concepts of his Crust study are interwoven with issues in Plateau, Mantle and Plate tectonics.
His main research concerns Subduction, Lithosphere, Geophysics, Slab and Seismology. His research links Rayleigh wave with Subduction. A component of his Lithosphere study involves Tectonics and Paleontology.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Geomorphology, Magnitude and Andean plateau. His research integrates issues of Induced seismicity, Flat slab subduction and Oceanic crust in his study of Geophysics. His Slab study incorporates themes from Plateau, Surface, Deformation and Crust.
