1998 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
His primary areas of study are Mantle, Geophysics, Mantle convection, Seismic tomography and Geoid. He has included themes like Geodynamics and Hotspot in his Mantle study. Mark A. Richards combines subjects such as Archipelago, Volcanic rock, Paleontology, Seamount and Mantle plume with his study of Hotspot.
His Geophysics study combines topics in areas such as Lithosphere, Thermal subsidence and Plate tectonics. His Mantle convection research incorporates elements of Convection, Transition zone and Boundary layer. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Volcanism, focusing on Basalt and, on occasion, Plume.
Geophysics, Mantle, Mantle convection, Lithosphere and Subduction are his primary areas of study. His research in Geophysics intersects with topics in Boundary layer, Plate tectonics and Slab window. His work deals with themes such as Mantle plume, Plume, Convection and Hotspot, which intersect with Mantle.
The various areas that Mark A. Richards examines in his Mantle plume study include Volcano, Volcanism, Basalt and Petrology. Mark A. Richards works mostly in the field of Mantle convection, limiting it down to concerns involving Asthenosphere and, occasionally, Low-velocity zone. Mark A. Richards works mostly in the field of Lithosphere, limiting it down to topics relating to True polar wander and, in certain cases, Polar wander, as a part of the same area of interest.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Petrology, Volcano, Plume, Mantle plume and Seismology. His Petrology research integrates issues from Basaltic lava, Thermal, Magma chamber and Submarine pipeline. His study in Plume is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Geomorphology and Hotspot.
His Mantle plume research incorporates themes from Mantle and Asthenosphere. His research on Mantle concerns the broader Geophysics. His work on Geophysical imaging, Lava, Seiche and Seismic wave as part of general Seismology research is often related to Event, thus linking different fields of science.
Mark A. Richards mainly focuses on Underrepresented Minority, Training, Plume, Channelized and Geomorphology. His work in Underrepresented Minority is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Alliance. Among his Training studies, there is a synthesis of other scientific areas such as Research management, Applied psychology and Ambiguity.
His Plume study frequently links to other fields, such as Hotspot.
