John P. Platt focuses on Lithosphere, Metamorphic rock, Seismology, Geophysics and Petrology. In his study, Crust, Horst and graben, Subsidence and Ridge is inextricably linked to Paleogene, which falls within the broad field of Lithosphere. The various areas that he examines in his Metamorphic rock study include Metamorphism, Granulite and Underplating.
His Metamorphism research is included under the broader classification of Geochemistry. His Seismology research incorporates themes from Neogene and Arc. His study focuses on the intersection of Petrology and fields such as Magmatism with connections in the field of Lithospheric mantle and Slab.
His primary areas of investigation include Seismology, Shear zone, Petrology, Subduction and Geochemistry. His work carried out in the field of Seismology brings together such families of science as Paleontology and Clockwise. His Shear zone research also works with subjects such as
He interconnects Lithosphere, Magmatism and Crust in the investigation of issues within Petrology. His study looks at the relationship between Lithosphere and topics such as Geophysics, which overlap with Delamination. John P. Platt combines subjects such as Fission track dating, Geomorphology and Underplating with his study of Metamorphic rock.
His primary scientific interests are in Shear zone, Petrology, Subduction, Seismology and Quartz. His work deals with themes such as Slip, Geotechnical engineering, Strain rate and Plate tectonics, which intersect with Shear zone. His research in Petrology intersects with topics in Mylonite and Tectonics.
His Subduction research integrates issues from Geochemistry, Pressure solution and Engineering management. His Seismology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Fold and Deformation. John P. Platt has researched Shear in several fields, including Lineation and Metamorphism.
John P. Platt spends much of his time researching Shear zone, Petrology, Shear, Subduction and Slip. His Shear zone research is within the category of Seismology. John P. Platt has included themes like Mylonite and Quartz in his Petrology study.
His research in Shear focuses on subjects like Lineation, which are connected to Geologic map, Lithosphere, Paleogene and Mediterranean climate. His study in Subduction is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Geochemistry and Pressure solution. His work in Geochemistry addresses issues such as Phengite, which are connected to fields such as Metamorphic rock.
