His primary scientific interests are in Mineralogy, Thermodynamics, Shock wave, Mantle and Equation of state. His research in Mineralogy intersects with topics in Stishovite, Silicate and Analytical chemistry. Thomas J. Ahrens interconnects Enstatite and Outer core in the investigation of issues within Thermodynamics.
His Shock wave research includes themes of Phase transition, Melting point, Kinetic energy and Shock. In the field of Mantle, his study on Post-perovskite and Core–mantle boundary overlaps with subjects such as Earth's internal heat budget. Thomas J. Ahrens has included themes like Finite strain theory, Single crystal, Enthalpy and Shock in his Equation of state study.
Thomas J. Ahrens mainly focuses on Mineralogy, Thermodynamics, Shock wave, Shock and Impact crater. His Mineralogy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Analytical chemistry, Bulk modulus, Mantle, Silicate and Stishovite. His work deals with themes such as Phase diagram and Forsterite, which intersect with Thermodynamics.
His Shock wave study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Phase transition, Geophysics, Amplitude, Optics and Particle velocity. The study incorporates disciplines such as Mechanics and Compression in addition to Shock. His studies deal with areas such as Planet, Hypervelocity and Projectile as well as Impact crater.
His main research concerns Thermodynamics, Shock, Shock wave, Mineralogy and Impact crater. The concepts of his Thermodynamics study are interwoven with issues in Silicate and Forsterite. Thomas J. Ahrens has researched Shock in several fields, including Stress, Analytical chemistry, Mechanics, Compression and Pyrometer.
His Shock wave research integrates issues from Phase transition, Geophysics, Solar System, Projectile and Vaporization. The study incorporates disciplines such as Chemical engineering and Stishovite in addition to Mineralogy. The various areas that Thomas J. Ahrens examines in his Impact crater study include Seismology, Geochemistry, Geotechnical engineering and Anhydrite.
Thomas J. Ahrens mostly deals with Thermodynamics, Shock wave, Mineralogy, Shock and Impact crater. His work focuses on many connections between Thermodynamics and other disciplines, such as Mantle, that overlap with his field of interest in Pyroxene. His study in Shock wave is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Core, Geophysics, Solar System, Enstatite and Yield.
He has included themes like Eutectic system, Stishovite and Silicate in his Mineralogy study. His Shock study combines topics in areas such as Particle velocity, Mechanics, Atmosphere and Meteorite. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Rock mechanics, Fracture, Projectile, Geochemistry and Geomorphology.
