His primary areas of investigation include Seismology, Lithosphere, Mantle, Crust and Tectonics. In general Seismology study, his work on Seismic wave often relates to the realm of Shear velocity, thereby connecting several areas of interest. He interconnects Partial melting and Far East in the investigation of issues within Lithosphere.
His Mantle research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Mantle plume, Petrology and Hotspot. His work in Crust covers topics such as Mohorovičić discontinuity which are related to areas like Continental arc, Batholith and Shear zone. His study explores the link between Tectonics and topics such as Amplitude that cross with problems in Phase velocity, Basin and Range Province and Basin and range topography.
Thomas J. Owens spends much of his time researching Seismology, Lithosphere, Crust, Mantle and Seismic wave. His Amplitude research extends to the thematically linked field of Seismology. His research on Lithosphere also deals with topics like
His Crust study incorporates themes from Asthenosphere, Waveform, Batholith, Petrology and Plateau. His work in the fields of Mantle, such as Core–mantle boundary, intersects with other areas such as Cenozoic. His Seismic wave research focuses on Surface wave and how it connects with Seismic array and Coda.
His main research concerns Lithosphere, Seismology, Crust, Tomography and Geochemistry. In his research, Mantle flow is intimately related to Shear, which falls under the overarching field of Lithosphere. His Seismology research includes elements of Paleontology, Precambrian and Shear wave splitting.
His Crust study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Batholith, Basin and range topography and Mantle. Thomas J. Owens focuses mostly in the field of Mantle, narrowing it down to topics relating to Asthenosphere and, in certain cases, Crest and Latitude. His research in Geochemistry intersects with topics in Underplating, Proterozoic and Character.
Thomas J. Owens mostly deals with Seismology, Batholith, Lithosphere, Crust and Mantle. His Seismology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Precambrian, Shear wave splitting and Seismic anisotropy. A component of his Lithosphere study involves Paleontology and Tectonics.
His Crust research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Volcano, Amplitude, High amplitude, Earthscope and Basin and range topography. The various areas that Thomas J. Owens examines in his Earthscope study include Asthenosphere, Silicic, Latitude and USArray. In Mantle, Thomas J. Owens works on issues like Residuum, which are connected to Mafic, Earth science, Volcanic rock, Basalt and Extensional deformation.
