1978 - Fellow of Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
Jason B. Saleeby mainly investigates Geochemistry, Mantle, Batholith, Crust and Xenolith. His research in Geochemistry intersects with topics in Volcanic arc and Granulite. Jason B. Saleeby interconnects Seismology, Shear zone, Petrology and Continental arc in the investigation of issues within Mantle.
His study ties his expertise on Igneous rock together with the subject of Batholith. His Crust study focuses on Continental crust in particular. Jason B. Saleeby has included themes like Basin and range topography and Volcanic rock in his Xenolith study.
His main research concerns Geochemistry, Paleontology, Batholith, Seismology and Geomorphology. His Geochemistry research includes themes of Ophiolite and Pluton. His Batholith research integrates issues from Crust, Shear zone, Petrology, Mafic and Silicic.
His study focuses on the intersection of Crust and fields such as Oceanic crust with connections in the field of Continental margin. His studies in Geomorphology integrate themes in fields like Thermochronology and Fault. In his work, Tectonic subsidence and Magmatism is strongly intertwined with Lithosphere, which is a subfield of Mantle.
Jason B. Saleeby spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Batholith, Geomorphology, Lithosphere and Paleontology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Earth science, Subduction and Mesozoic in addition to Geochemistry. Jason B. Saleeby combines subjects such as Ophiolite, Eclogite, Pluton and Terrane with his study of Batholith.
His study in Geomorphology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Kings River, Thermochronology, Plate tectonics and Crust. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Epeirogenic movement and Mantle. The concepts of his Cretaceous study are interwoven with issues in Basement and Cenozoic.
