2010 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
Lithosphere, Geophysics, Mantle, Asthenosphere and Anisotropy are her primary areas of study. Her Lithosphere study combines topics in areas such as Discontinuity and Craton. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Seismology and Plate tectonics.
Her study focuses on the intersection of Seismology and fields such as Shear wave splitting with connections in the field of Subduction. Karen M. Fischer has researched Asthenosphere in several fields, including Shear waves and Crust. Her Anisotropy course of study focuses on Pacific Plate and Mantle flow, Lau Basin, Seabed and Oceanography.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Mantle, Lithosphere, Geophysics and Subduction. In general Seismology, her work in Plate tectonics, Terrane and Pacific Plate is often linked to Shear velocity linking many areas of study. Her Mantle research incorporates themes from Crust, Petrology, Transition zone and Anisotropy.
Karen M. Fischer focuses mostly in the field of Lithosphere, narrowing it down to matters related to Craton and, in some cases, Gondwana and Plume. In general Geophysics study, her work on Tectonophysics, Seismic wave and Seismic tomography often relates to the realm of Classification of discontinuities, thereby connecting several areas of interest. Her Subduction study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Slab, Induced seismicity and Shear wave splitting.
Her primary areas of study are Lithosphere, Geophysics, Tectonophysics, Seismology and Craton. Lithosphere is frequently linked to Mantle in her study. Her Mantle research incorporates elements of Petrology and Asthenosphere.
Her Geophysics research integrates issues from Rayleigh wave and Bayesian inversion. Her work on Plate tectonics, Subduction and Aftershock as part of general Seismology study is frequently linked to South carolina and Sequence, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her Craton research focuses on Gondwana and how it connects with Plume.
Karen M. Fischer focuses on Lithosphere, Geophysics, Mantle, Lithosphere-Asthenosphere boundary and Tectonics. Her work in Geophysics tackles topics such as Craton which are related to areas like Surface wave and Inverse theory. Her Mantle research includes elements of Petrology and Asthenosphere.
The Petrology study combines topics in areas such as Crust, Rift, Lithospheric flexure, Seismic anisotropy and Gondwana. Her Lithosphere-Asthenosphere boundary study improves the overall literature in Seismology. Her work on Paleozoic expands to the thematically related Seismology.
