John L. Smellie mostly deals with Paleontology, Volcanic rock, Geochemistry, Glacial period and Ice sheet. Many of his studies on Paleontology involve topics that are commonly interrelated, such as Shetland. His Volcanic rock research integrates issues from Lava and Back-arc basin.
He studied Geochemistry and Seismology that intersect with Geophysics and Explosive material. His Glacial period research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Nestedness, Continental shelf, Oceanography and Glaciology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Glacier, Astrobiology and Interglacial.
His primary areas of study are Paleontology, Oceanography, Volcano, Geochemistry and Ice sheet. Glacial period, Sedimentary rock, Volcanic rock, Lava and Late Miocene are the primary areas of interest in his Paleontology study. His study in Oceanography is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sediment core, Cape and Peninsula.
His research integrates issues of Volcanism and Earth science in his study of Volcano. Within one scientific family, John L. Smellie focuses on topics pertaining to Geomorphology under Geochemistry, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Subglacial eruption. The Ice sheet study combines topics in areas such as Cryosphere, Ice stream, Antarctic ice sheet, Antarctic sea ice and Interglacial.
His main research concerns Paleontology, Volcano, Ice sheet, Volcanology and Geochemistry. His Paleontology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ice core and Antarctic ice sheet. The concepts of his Volcano study are interwoven with issues in Volcanism, Subduction, Volcanic arc and Ridge.
His study in Ice sheet is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Glacial period, Cryosphere, Ice stream and Glacier, Physical geography. His study explores the link between Volcanology and topics such as Peninsula that cross with problems in Argo. While the research belongs to areas of Geochemistry, John L. Smellie spends his time largely on the problem of Interglacial, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Xenolith, Volcanic ash and Phreatomagmatic eruption.
His primary areas of investigation include Paleontology, Volcano, Volcanology, Ice sheet and Ice stream. His Paleontology research integrates issues from Ice core and Geomorphology. His studies deal with areas such as Volcanic arc and Seamount as well as Volcano.
Ice sheet is closely attributed to Glacier in his research. In his research, Antarctic ice sheet is intimately related to Antarctic sea ice, which falls under the overarching field of Ice stream. His work deals with themes such as Geochemistry, Neogene and Stratovolcano, which intersect with Volcanism.
