Mark R. Handy mainly investigates Continental crust, Crust, Shear zone, Mineralogy and Lithosphere. His Continental crust study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Mylonite. His Mylonite research includes themes of Shear, Petrology and Induced seismicity.
His Crust research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Seismology and Ivrea zone. His research integrates issues of Rheology, Drop, Grain boundary, Strain rate and Creep in his study of Mineralogy. Mark R. Handy combines subjects such as Subduction, Eclogitization, Oceanic crust, Cohesion and Fault with his study of Lithosphere.
His primary areas of study are Seismology, Petrology, Lithosphere, Shear zone and Subduction. His Petrology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Denudation and Window. His Lithosphere study incorporates themes from Plate tectonics and Geophysics, Mantle, Crust.
His studies deal with areas such as Geomorphology, Geochemistry, Shearing and Continental crust as well as Shear zone. His Continental crust research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ivrea zone and Underplating. His work deals with themes such as Shear, Strain rate, Mineralogy and Brittleness, which intersect with Mylonite.
Seismology, Petrology, Window, Subduction and Paleontology are his primary areas of study. Seismology is represented through his Lithosphere, Nappe, Fault, Plate tectonics and Seismic array research. His Lithosphere study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Discontinuity, Mantle and Geophysical imaging.
He works mostly in the field of Mantle, limiting it down to topics relating to Tectonics and, in certain cases, Crust and Seismic noise. The concepts of his Petrology study are interwoven with issues in Denudation and Penninic. His work on Neogene as part of general Paleontology research is often related to Kinematics, thus linking different fields of science.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Seismology, Mantle, Crust, Lithosphere and Window. In general Seismology, his work in Ophiolite is often linked to Relation linking many areas of study. His research in Mantle intersects with topics in Sedimentary basin and Tectonics.
Mark R. Handy studies Asthenosphere, a branch of Lithosphere. He combines subjects such as Penninic, Subduction and Petrology with his study of Window. His Petrology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Denudation, Doming and Erosion, Geomorphology.
