His primary areas of investigation include Paleontology, Rift, Structural basin, Mesozoic and Extinction event. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Paleoclimatology and Paleontology. His research integrates issues of Dike, Diachronous, Sill and Continental crust in his study of Rift.
His research in Structural basin tackles topics such as Sedimentary rock which are related to areas like Sedimentary depositional environment, Sequence stratigraphy and Fluvial. As part of the same scientific family, Paul E. Olsen usually focuses on Mesozoic, concentrating on Lithostratigraphy and intersecting with Palynology, Chronostratigraphy and Cretaceous. His work in Magnetostratigraphy addresses subjects such as Stratigraphic section, which are connected to disciplines such as Paleomagnetism and Biostratigraphy.
His primary areas of study are Paleontology, Structural basin, Rift, Mesozoic and Geochemistry. Paul E. Olsen merges many fields, such as Paleontology and Extinction event, in his writings. Paul E. Olsen has included themes like Outcrop, Oceanography and Archaeology in his Structural basin study.
His work deals with themes such as Inversion, Petrology and Facies, which intersect with Rift. A large part of his Geochemistry studies is devoted to Zircon. His work is dedicated to discovering how Magnetostratigraphy, Geochronology are connected with Colorado plateau and other disciplines.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Paleontology, Geochemistry, Geochronology, Paleoceanography and Zircon. The Structural basin and Paleomagnetism research Paul E. Olsen does as part of his general Paleontology study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Coring, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. The various areas that Paul E. Olsen examines in his Structural basin study include Mineralogy and Mars Exploration Program.
His Geochemistry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Rift and White Mountain. The study incorporates disciplines such as Cyclostratigraphy, Magnetostratigraphy, High latitude and Global change in addition to Paleoceanography. His research in Zircon focuses on subjects like Geologic time scale, which are connected to National park, Archaeology and Paleoclimatology.
Paul E. Olsen spends much of his time researching Paleontology, Geochemistry, Coring, Geologic time scale and Colorado plateau. His work on Paleomagnetism, Mesozoic and Fluvial as part of his general Paleontology study is frequently connected to Paleosol, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Paleomagnetism research includes elements of Structural basin, Gondwana, Laurasia and Fold.
His work on Extrusive as part of general Geochemistry research is often related to Environmental science and Redox, thus linking different fields of science. His Geologic time scale study also includes fields such as
