Seismology, San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth, Fault, Stress and Borehole are his primary areas of study. His work in the fields of Induced seismicity overlaps with other areas such as Accident prevention. His San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth research includes elements of Mineralogy and Petrology.
His Petrology study incorporates themes from Clay minerals and Protolith. His Stress research incorporates elements of Lithosphere, Geophysics and Active fault. His study in Borehole is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Slip, Stress field and Crust.
His primary scientific interests are in Seismology, Borehole, Geothermal gradient, Fault and Permeability. His Seismology study which covers Slip that intersects with Horizontal stress. His study explores the link between Borehole and topics such as Stress field that cross with problems in Measured depth.
His Fault study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Stress and Compression. The various areas that Stephen H. Hickman examines in his Permeability study include Hydrothermal circulation, Petrology, Geothermal reservoir, Pore water pressure and Overburden pressure. He has researched San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth in several fields, including Fault gouge and Crust.
Stephen H. Hickman mainly investigates Seismology, Geothermal gradient, Induced seismicity, Forge and San andreas fault. His research investigates the connection between Seismology and topics such as Geological survey that intersect with problems in Subduction, Plate tectonics and Borehole. Stephen H. Hickman has researched Geothermal gradient in several fields, including Wellhead, Geotechnical engineering and Deformation.
His research in Geotechnical engineering tackles topics such as Ultimate tensile strength which are related to areas like Petrology. His Petrology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Saponite, Hydrothermal circulation and Fault gouge. His San andreas fault study combines topics in areas such as Shear zone, Sediment compaction and Transition zone.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Geothermal gradient, Seismology, Induced seismicity, Deformation and Subsidence. The various areas that he examines in his Geothermal gradient study include Stress, FEHM, Overpressure, Mass flow and Wellhead. His Seismology study often links to related topics such as Atmospheric temperature range.
His Induced seismicity study overlaps with Poison control, Oil and gas production, Injury control, Accident prevention and Waste disposal. As part of his studies on Deformation, he often connects relevant areas like Geomorphology.
