His main research concerns Geochemistry, Ophiolite, Basalt, Subduction and Island arc. The study incorporates disciplines such as Petrology, Coast Range Ophiolite and Oceanic crust in addition to Geochemistry. His Coast Range Ophiolite research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Diachronous, Diorite, Obduction and Asthenosphere.
His Basalt study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Volcano, Caldera, Crust, Rift and Augite. Within one scientific family, John W. Shervais focuses on topics pertaining to Mantle under Subduction, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Continental margin, Dike and Forearc. John W. Shervais combines subjects such as Ocean island basalt, Xenolith, Andesites, Pillow lava and Petrogenesis with his study of Ultramafic rock.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Geochemistry, Basalt, Petrology, Subduction and Hotspot. John W. Shervais interconnects Ophiolite and Coast Range Ophiolite in the investigation of issues within Geochemistry. His Ophiolite research incorporates elements of Island arc and Oceanic crust.
His Basalt study combines topics in areas such as Volcano, Mafic and Olivine. He studied Petrology and Geothermal gradient that intersect with Borehole and Geomorphology. His work on Forearc as part of general Subduction study is frequently connected to Arc, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.
John W. Shervais spends much of his time researching Geochemistry, Subduction, Basalt, Forearc and Petrology. His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Volcanism and Hotspot. His Subduction research integrates issues from Ophiolite, Magmatism and Mantle.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Geologic record, Mineralization, Volcanic glass, Trace fossil and Seafloor spreading. His work focuses on many connections between Forearc and other disciplines, such as Volcanology, that overlap with his field of interest in Tectonophysics, Trace element and Phenocryst. His study in Petrology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Geothermal gradient, Cruise and Geochronology.
His primary areas of investigation include Basalt, Subduction, Geochemistry, Mantle and Petrology. His Basalt study frequently links to related topics such as Ophiolite. His Ophiolite study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Incompatible element, Crust, Island arc and Volcanic rock.
In the field of Subduction, his study on Forearc and Oceanic crust overlaps with subjects such as Mariana Trench. His research in Geochemistry is mostly focused on Seamount. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Mantle, concentrating on Mantle wedge and frequently concerns with Coast Range Ophiolite, Asthenosphere and Peridotite.
