His primary areas of investigation include Geochemistry, Volcano, Basalt, Partial melting and Island arc. His work in the fields of Geochemistry, such as Olivine, Phenocryst, Mafic and Volcanic rock, intersects with other areas such as Liquidus. His Volcano research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Petrology, Volcanism, CYCLADES and Asthenosphere.
His Basalt study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Andesite, Mineralogy, Amphibole and Mantle. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Quartz and Andesites. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Partial melting, concentrating on Lithosphere and frequently concerns with Quaternary.
Ian A Nicholls mainly focuses on Geochemistry, Mantle, Mafic, Fold and Basalt. His Geochemistry study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Pluton. His Mantle study incorporates themes from Olivine and Oceanic crust.
His work in Mafic tackles topics such as Igneous rock which are related to areas like Protolith and Trace element. His research investigates the connection between Basalt and topics such as Continental crust that intersect with issues in Continental margin and Island arc. His studies in Partial melting integrate themes in fields like Lithosphere and Asthenosphere.
His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Volcanic rock, Volcano, Maar and Igneous differentiation. His study in Geochemistry focuses on Mantle in particular. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Mantle, Petrogenesis, Petrology, Protolith and Igneous rock is strongly linked to Crust.
His study looks at the intersection of Volcanic rock and topics like Basalt with Asthenosphere and Volcanism. Ian A Nicholls focuses mostly in the field of Maar, narrowing it down to matters related to Earth science and, in some cases, Lava, Cave, Xenolith, Scoria and Megacryst. In his research on the topic of Pluton, Zircon and Fold is strongly related with Quartz.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geochemistry, Mantle, Asthenosphere, Basalt and Volcanic rock. His study in Crust, Volcano, Primitive mantle and Igneous rock falls under the purview of Geochemistry. His Volcano research incorporates elements of Volcanism and Lithosphere.
His research on Primitive mantle frequently links to adjacent areas such as Mantle plume. The concepts of his Igneous rock study are interwoven with issues in Petrology, Mafic, Pluton and Protolith. His work in Asthenosphere is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Partial melting.
