Seismology, Geophysics, Subduction, Mantle and Core–mantle boundary are his primary areas of study. Seismology is often connected to Geodesy in his work. His studies in Subduction integrate themes in fields like Intraplate earthquake, Asperity, Earthquake rupture and Induced seismicity.
His work carried out in the field of Mantle brings together such families of science as Slab, Discontinuity, Shear waves and Mineralogy. His Core–mantle boundary research includes themes of Post-perovskite and Mantle convection. His studies deal with areas such as Epicenter and Thrust fault as well as Aftershock.
Seismology, Seismic wave, Mantle, Geophysics and Subduction are his primary areas of study. His Seismology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Surface wave and Geodesy. His Seismic wave research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Wave propagation, Crust, Seismogram and Focal mechanism.
His Mantle research integrates issues from Amplitude, S-wave, Shear waves and Discontinuity. Thorne Lay works mostly in the field of Geophysics, limiting it down to topics relating to Mantle convection and, in certain cases, Mantle wedge, as a part of the same area of interest. His work is dedicated to discovering how Subduction, Trench are connected with Tsunami earthquake and other disciplines.
Thorne Lay spends much of his time researching Seismology, Subduction, Plate tectonics, Aftershock and Fault. His studies link Trench with Seismology. His work in Subduction addresses subjects such as Moment magnitude scale, which are connected to disciplines such as Megathrust earthquake, Seismic moment and Coseismic slip.
Thorne Lay interconnects Tsunami earthquake, Fracture zone, Magnetic dip and Lithosphere in the investigation of issues within Plate tectonics. The concepts of his Tsunami earthquake study are interwoven with issues in Seismometer and Seismogram. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Slab, Hypocenter, Tectonics and Earthquake statistics.
Thorne Lay mainly investigates Seismology, Subduction, Aftershock, Plate tectonics and Intraplate earthquake. His Seismology study often links to related topics such as Trench. His research integrates issues of Induced seismicity and Moment magnitude scale in his study of Subduction.
Thorne Lay combines subjects such as Seismic moment, Coseismic slip, Megathrust earthquake and Reef with his study of Moment magnitude scale. His research integrates issues of Magnetic dip and Stress drop in his study of Plate tectonics. His work deals with themes such as Slab and Interplate earthquake, which intersect with Fault.
