His scientific interests lie mostly in Geomorphology, Ice sheet, Meltwater, Ice stream and Deformation. His is doing research in Glacier and Sediment, both of which are found in Geomorphology. In his research on the topic of Ice sheet, Ice-sheet model is strongly related with Glacial period.
The study incorporates disciplines such as Groundwater flow and Outwash plain in addition to Meltwater. The Ice stream study combines topics in areas such as Ice shelf and Antarctic sea ice. His Deformation research focuses on Petrology and how it relates to Till plain.
His primary areas of study are Geomorphology, Ice sheet, Ice stream, Glacial period and Glacier. His work deals with themes such as Groundwater flow and Deformation, which intersect with Geomorphology. His studies in Ice sheet integrate themes in fields like Geologic record, Fast ice, Deglaciation and Physical geography.
His Ice stream research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Ice shelf, Antarctic sea ice and Petrology. His study in Glacial period is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sedimentary rock and Oceanography. His Glacier research focuses on subjects like Glacier morphology, which are linked to Surge.
Jan A. Piotrowski spends much of his time researching Drumlin, Ice sheet, Paleontology, Field and Ice stream. His Ice sheet research includes themes of Glacial period, Deglaciation, Glacier, Physical geography and Landform. His specific area of interest is Glacier, where Jan A. Piotrowski studies Meltwater.
His Field research incorporates Geomorphology and Kinematics. His Geomorphology study incorporates themes from Hydrology, Drainage system and Groundwater flow. The study incorporates disciplines such as Shear zone and Petrology in addition to Ice stream.
Jan A. Piotrowski mainly investigates Ice sheet, Glacial period, Glacier, Petrology and Shear zone. His Glacial period research includes elements of Drumlin, Physical geography, Flood myth and Landform. Many of his research projects under Glacier are closely connected to Kettle with Kettle, tying the diverse disciplines of science together.
His Petrology study combines topics in areas such as Basal sliding, Ice stream, Outwash plain, Weichselian glaciation and Detritus. His Shear zone study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Diachronous, Fast ice, Shearing and Simple shear.
