2019 - Fellow of American Geophysical Union (AGU)
Michael J. Walter mainly investigates Mantle, Mineralogy, Oceanic crust, Geochemistry and Thermodynamics. His Mantle course of study focuses on Petrology and Peridotite. Michael J. Walter interconnects Internal pressure, Aluminium and Silicate in the investigation of issues within Mineralogy.
His Oceanic crust research includes themes of Mid-ocean ridge and Transition zone. His work on Crust as part of general Geochemistry study is frequently linked to Volcanic rock, bridging the gap between disciplines. He combines subjects such as Crystallography, Standard sample, Spinel and Solidus with his study of Thermodynamics.
His main research concerns Mantle, Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Silicate and Transition zone. He specializes in Mantle, namely Peridotite. The Mineralogy study combines topics in areas such as Solid solution, Analytical chemistry, Thermodynamics and Perovskite, Silicate perovskite.
His Geochemistry research focuses on Subduction and how it relates to Partial melting. His Silicate research includes elements of Planetesimal, Mineral redox buffer, Metal, Magnesium and Astrobiology. His Transition zone study incorporates themes from Planetary differentiation, Mantle convection, Ferropericlase and Oceanic crust.
His primary areas of investigation include Transition zone, Mantle, Geochemistry, Silicate and Astrobiology. His Transition zone research incorporates elements of Orthorhombic crystal system, Petrology, Oceanic crust, Titanium and Silicate perovskite. His studies deal with areas such as Analytical chemistry, Subduction and Crust as well as Mantle.
His Analytical chemistry research includes elements of Metasomatism, Spinel, Metal and Mineralogy. His Geochemistry study is mostly concerned with Peridotite and Majorite. Michael J. Walter combines subjects such as Planetesimal and Terrestrial planet with his study of Astrobiology.
Michael J. Walter spends much of his time researching Mantle, Astrobiology, Silicate, Chondrite and Planetesimal. His Mantle research includes themes of Oceanic crust, Lithosphere, Transition zone and Hotspot. His Transition zone research is under the purview of Geochemistry.
His studies in Astrobiology integrate themes in fields like Crust, Terrestrial planet, Magnesium and Incompatible element. His Silicate study incorporates themes from Formation and evolution of the Solar System and Isotopes of magnesium.
