Kaj Hoernle mainly investigates Geochemistry, Volcanic rock, Mantle, Basalt and Subduction. His Geochemistry research incorporates elements of Adakite and Oceanic crust. His study in Volcanic rock is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Isochron, Plate tectonics, Igneous rock and Seamount.
The concepts of his Mantle study are interwoven with issues in Volcanic arc and Mantle wedge. His work deals with themes such as Earth science, Radiogenic nuclide, Alkali basalt, Ocean island basalt and Asthenosphere, which intersect with Basalt. His work carried out in the field of Subduction brings together such families of science as Basement, Magmatism, Large igneous province and Continental margin.
His primary scientific interests are in Geochemistry, Mantle, Subduction, Basalt and Paleontology. His work in Geochemistry addresses subjects such as Oceanic crust, which are connected to disciplines such as Mid-ocean ridge. His work carried out in the field of Mantle brings together such families of science as Mantle plume, Lithosphere, Mantle wedge, Crust and Hotspot.
Kaj Hoernle works mostly in the field of Hotspot, limiting it down to topics relating to Seamount and, in certain cases, Plate tectonics, as a part of the same area of interest. His Subduction research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Petrology and Earth science. His research investigates the connection between Basalt and topics such as Olivine that intersect with issues in Phenocryst.
Geochemistry, Paleontology, Mantle, Mantle plume and Basalt are his primary areas of study. His Volcanic rock, Volcano, Crust and Igneous rock study, which is part of a larger body of work in Geochemistry, is frequently linked to Arc, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Volcanic rock study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Archean, Radiogenic nuclide, Large igneous province and Incompatible element.
His work deals with themes such as Lithosphere, Mantle wedge, Seamount, Oceanic crust and Hotspot, which intersect with Mantle. His Mantle plume research incorporates themes from Flood basalt and Magmatism. His Basalt study which covers Olivine that intersects with Fractional crystallization.
His main research concerns Mantle, Paleontology, Geochemistry, Mantle plume and Basalt. His Mantle research integrates issues from Lithosphere and Hotspot. His study in Hotspot is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Volcanism and Seamount.
His Geochemistry research includes themes of Ophiolite and Large igneous province. His Volcanic rock research extends to the thematically linked field of Basalt. His studies deal with areas such as Seafloor spreading and Continental margin as well as Subduction.
