Henry Elderfield focuses on Seawater, Oceanography, Mineralogy, Geochemistry and Hydrothermal circulation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Sediment, Carbonate and Environmental chemistry. His research brings together the fields of Glacial period and Oceanography.
His research investigates the connection between Mineralogy and topics such as Analytical chemistry that intersect with problems in Calcite and Magnesium. His Geochemistry study combines topics in areas such as Recrystallization, Oceanic crust and Geochemical cycle. His Hydrothermal circulation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Basalt, Mid-ocean ridge and Ridge.
His primary areas of study are Oceanography, Mineralogy, Seawater, Geochemistry and Foraminifera. In his research, Holocene is intimately related to Glacial period, which falls under the overarching field of Oceanography. His Mineralogy research incorporates elements of Sediment, Table and Analytical chemistry.
His Seawater research includes themes of Carbonate, Hydrothermal circulation, Environmental chemistry and Salinity. The various areas that Henry Elderfield examines in his Hydrothermal circulation study include Plume, Ridge and Basalt. Henry Elderfield specializes in Geochemistry, namely Diagenesis.
Henry Elderfield mostly deals with Oceanography, Sediment core, Foraminifera, Geochemistry and Mineralogy. His Oceanography study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Glacial period, Interglacial and Isotopes of oxygen. His work carried out in the field of Foraminifera brings together such families of science as Authigenic, Sediment, δ18O and Paleoclimatology.
His Geochemistry study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Seafloor spreading and Carbon cycle. The study incorporates disciplines such as Trace element and Analytical chemistry in addition to Mineralogy. His studies in Calcite integrate themes in fields like Seawater and Isotope fractionation.
His main research concerns Oceanography, Foraminifera, Seawater, Climatology and Sediment. He combines subjects such as Glacial period and Interglacial with his study of Oceanography. His studies deal with areas such as δ18O, Paleoclimatology, Ocean acidification and Calcite as well as Foraminifera.
His Calcite study is within the categories of Mineralogy and Geochemistry. His Seawater research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Environmental chemistry, Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, Carbon cycle and Amphistegina. Henry Elderfield has included themes like Deglaciation, Carbonate and Benthic zone in his Deep sea study.
