Michael M. Watkins focuses on Geodesy, Gravitational field, Remote sensing, DORIS and Geoid. His Geodesy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Moment of inertia and Spherical cap. His Gravitational field research incorporates themes from Love number, Outer core, Inner core, Tidal force and Radius.
His study in Remote sensing is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Satellite navigation, Global Positioning System and Real-time computing. His DORIS research includes elements of Geodetic datum, Geopotential, Orbit determination, Geopotential model and Altimeter. His Geoid study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Watershed, Surface water, Drainage basin, Gravimetry and Annual cycle.
Michael M. Watkins mainly investigates Geodesy, Gravitational field, Gravity, Geophysics and Remote sensing. His work deals with themes such as Global Positioning System and Satellite laser ranging, which intersect with Geodesy. The concepts of his Gravitational field study are interwoven with issues in Geopotential and Gravimetry.
The various areas that he examines in his Gravity study include Structural basin, Oceanography, Ocean bottom and Crust. His research in the fields of Gravitation of the Moon and Mantle overlaps with other disciplines such as Spherical harmonics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Spacecraft, Reference frame and DORIS in addition to Remote sensing.
Satellite gravimetry, Snow, Ice sheet, Climatology and Current are his primary areas of study. He combines subjects such as Water cycle, Ice melt, Glacier mass balance and Geodesy with his study of Satellite gravimetry. His Snow study incorporates themes from Future sea level, Ice shelf, Ice-sheet model, Continental shelf and Sea level.
Michael M. Watkins interconnects Sea level change, Climate change, Ocean bottom and Antarctic ice sheet in the investigation of issues within Ice sheet. His Climatology study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Earth system science. Current is closely attributed to Aeronautics in his study.
His main research concerns Satellite gravimetry, Mass transport, Geodesy, Ice melt and Snowmelt. His Satellite gravimetry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Climate change, Ocean bottom, Glacier mass balance and Water cycle. His studies in Snowmelt integrate themes in fields like Hydrology, Water resources and Groundwater.
His Water resources research includes themes of Tectonic uplift, Precipitation and Water content.
