Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Volcano
  • Basalt
  • Sedimentary rock

Michael F. Sheridan mostly deals with Pyroclastic rock, Pyroclastic surge, Geochemistry, Pyroclastic fall and Seismology. Volcano covers Michael F. Sheridan research in Pyroclastic rock. His Pyroclastic surge research integrates issues from Line, Strombolian eruption, Flow and Surge.

His work deals with themes such as Volcanic cone and Igneous rock, which intersect with Pyroclastic fall. Michael F. Sheridan focuses mostly in the field of Seismology, narrowing it down to matters related to Debris and, in some cases, Mass flow, Glacier, Outwash plain and Compressibility. He interconnects Impact crater and Petrology in the investigation of issues within Magma.

His most cited work include:

  • Hydrovolcanism: Basic considerations and review (286 citations)
  • Hydrovolcanic explosions; II, Evolution of basaltic tuff rings and tuff cones (243 citations)
  • Parallel adaptive numerical simulation of dry avalanches over natural terrain (182 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Pyroclastic rock, Volcano, Geomorphology, Geochemistry and Volcanic hazards. His Pyroclastic rock study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mineralogy, Petrology and Volcanic rock. His study in Volcanic rock is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Volcanic ash and Magma.

His Volcano study contributes to a more complete understanding of Seismology. His Geomorphology study combines topics in areas such as Tephra, Flow and Pumice. His Pyroclastic fall research incorporates themes from Peléan eruption and Subaerial eruption.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Pyroclastic rock (33.04%)
  • Volcano (32.17%)
  • Geomorphology (28.70%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2006-2018)?

  • Geomorphology (28.70%)
  • Volcano (32.17%)
  • Lahar (12.17%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Michael F. Sheridan mainly investigates Geomorphology, Volcano, Lahar, Pyroclastic rock and Debris. The study incorporates disciplines such as Crater lake, Flow and Natural hazard in addition to Geomorphology. Volcano is a subfield of Seismology that Michael F. Sheridan tackles.

Specifically, his work in Pyroclastic rock is concerned with the study of Pyroclastic surge. His research integrates issues of Peléan eruption and Pyroclastic fall in his study of Pyroclastic surge. He has researched Debris in several fields, including Landslide and Angostura.

Between 2006 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • Comparative lahar hazard mapping at Volcan Citlaltépetl, Mexico using SRTM, ASTER and DTED-1 digital topographic data (70 citations)
  • Flow and deposition of pyroclastic granular flows: A type example from the 1975 Ngauruhoe eruption, New Zealand (67 citations)
  • Input uncertainty propagation methods and hazard mapping of geophysical mass flows (64 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Volcano
  • Basalt
  • Sedimentary rock

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Lahar, Volcano, Pyroclastic rock, Geomorphology and Seismology. His work is dedicated to discovering how Lahar, Hydrology are connected with Two-phase flow, Flow and Debris and other disciplines. Michael F. Sheridan combines subjects such as Shuttle Radar Topography Mission, Magnitude, Aster and Debris flow with his study of Volcano.

His Pyroclastic rock study often links to related topics such as Petrology. In general Geomorphology, his work in Erosion is often linked to Population linking many areas of study. His studies deal with areas such as Hydrogeology, Impact crater and Natural hazard as well as Seismology.
