Shijie Zhong mainly investigates Geophysics, Mantle convection, Mantle, Convection and Mantle wedge. His studies deal with areas such as Post-glacial rebound, Lithosphere, Asthenosphere and Plate tectonics as well as Geophysics. His studies in Mantle convection integrate themes in fields like True polar wander and Oceanic crust.
Shijie Zhong conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Mantle and Downwelling through his works. His Convection research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Rheology, Viscosity, Spherical geometry and Spherical harmonics. His Mantle wedge research incorporates elements of Core–mantle boundary, Transition zone and Hotspot.
Shijie Zhong mainly focuses on Geophysics, Mantle, Mantle convection, Lithosphere and Convection. His Geophysics study incorporates themes from Geoid, Buoyancy, Plate tectonics, Plume and Mantle plume. His research in the fields of Core–mantle boundary overlaps with other disciplines such as Downwelling.
The Mantle convection study combines topics in areas such as Mantle wedge, Transition zone and Hotspot. His Lithosphere study also includes
Geophysics, Mantle, Mantle convection, Transition zone and Geoid are his primary areas of study. His study on Geophysics also encompasses disciplines like
The study incorporates disciplines such as Convection and Plate tectonics in addition to Mantle convection. As a part of the same scientific study, Shijie Zhong usually deals with the Transition zone, concentrating on Hotspot and frequently concerns with Mantle wedge. Shijie Zhong has included themes like Viscosity, Wavelength, Subduction and Ocean surface topography in his Geoid study.
His main research concerns Mantle convection, Geophysics, Transition zone, Mantle and Hotspot. His Mantle convection research incorporates themes from Mineral physics and Mantle plume. His research integrates issues of Slab, Layer and Subduction in his study of Mineral physics.
The concepts of his Geophysics study are interwoven with issues in Earth's internal heat budget and Spherical harmonics. His study in Transition zone is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Convection, Mantle wedge, Plume tectonics and Geoid. Shijie Zhong combines subjects such as Magmatism and Plate tectonics with his study of Seismic tomography.
