James A. Van Orman mainly focuses on Mineralogy, Lunar magma ocean, Geochemistry, Melt inclusions and Astrobiology. His Mineralogy research incorporates elements of Analytical chemistry, Mineral redox buffer, Arrhenius equation and Thermodynamics. In his study, Diopside and Solidus is strongly linked to Crystallization, which falls under the umbrella field of Arrhenius equation.
In general Geochemistry, his work in Radiogenic nuclide, Pyroxene and Mantle is often linked to Numerical modeling linking many areas of study. His study in Melt inclusions is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Carbonaceous chondrite and Solar System. His studies deal with areas such as Volcanic glass and Volatiles as well as Astrobiology.
His primary scientific interests are in Mineralogy, Thermodynamics, Mantle, Geochemistry and Analytical chemistry. His Mineralogy research focuses on Pyroxene in particular. James A. Van Orman has included themes like Periclase and Grain boundary in his Thermodynamics study.
His Mantle research incorporates themes from Grain size, Basalt, Petrology and Crystallization. His work in the fields of Basalt, such as Mid-ocean ridge, intersects with other areas such as Lunar magma ocean. His research integrates issues of Crystallography, Solidus and Diffusion in his study of Analytical chemistry.
James A. Van Orman focuses on Thermodynamics, Mantle, Silicate perovskite, Viscosity and Petrology. His Thermodynamics research integrates issues from Periclase and Grain growth. The various areas that James A. Van Orman examines in his Mantle study include Thermal diffusivity and Microstructure.
James A. Van Orman works mostly in the field of Thermal diffusivity, limiting it down to concerns involving Supercooling and, occasionally, Crystallization and Inner core. His research in Crystallization intersects with topics in Parent body and Closure temperature. His Helium research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Length scale and Analytical chemistry.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Phase, Thermodynamics, Deformation, Inner core and Bulk modulus. Phase is connected with Silicate perovskite, Creep, Viscosity, Climb and Rheology in his study. The concepts of his Deformation study are interwoven with issues in Alloy, Shear strength and Nickel.
His work deals with themes such as Chemical physics, Crystallization, Thermal and Dislocation creep, which intersect with Inner core. His Bulk modulus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Volume, Zirconium, Cubic crystal system, Equation of state and Grain growth.
