Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Sedimentary rock, Environmental chemistry and Analytical chemistry are his primary areas of study. His work in the fields of Mineralogy, such as Diagenesis, overlaps with other areas such as Isotopes of carbon. His work on Dolomite and Enhanced weathering as part of general Geochemistry study is frequently linked to Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.
His study in Environmental chemistry is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Calcium carbonate, Arid and Evaporite. His research in Analytical chemistry intersects with topics in Total pressure and Dissolution. He has researched Dissolution in several fields, including Witherite, Aragonite and Reaction mechanism.
Robert M. Garrels spends much of his time researching Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Inorganic chemistry, Sedimentary rock and Environmental chemistry. His Calcite and Diagenesis study in the realm of Mineralogy connects with subjects such as Phanerozoic. His studies deal with areas such as Slurry, Analytical chemistry and Dissolution as well as Calcite.
His study in Geochemistry focuses on Colorado plateau and Precambrian. His Inorganic chemistry study incorporates themes from Brochantite, Natural water, Aqueous solution and Solubility. His Sedimentary rock research includes elements of Mafic and Cycling.
His primary scientific interests are in Mineralogy, Calcite, Geochemistry, Sedimentary rock and Environmental chemistry. His study in Mineralogy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Seawater and Geochemical cycle. His Aragonite study in the realm of Calcite interacts with subjects such as Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere.
His Geochemistry study incorporates themes from Seafloor spreading and Deposition. His Sedimentary rock research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Calcium silicate and Silicate. His study in the field of Total organic carbon is also linked to topics like Ferrous and Oxygen.
His main research concerns Mineralogy, Sedimentary rock, Isotopes of carbon, Geochemical cycle and Geochemistry. His work on Witherite as part of his general Mineralogy study is frequently connected to Magnesite, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Sedimentary rock research incorporates themes from Environmental chemistry and Redox cycle.
His work carried out in the field of Geochemical cycle brings together such families of science as Enhanced weathering, Seafloor spreading, Earth science and Dolomite. His studies link Calcite with Enhanced weathering. His studies in Calcite integrate themes in fields like Reaction mechanism, Dissolution and Analytical chemistry.
