His primary areas of investigation include Geophysics, Mantle, Mantle convection, Subduction and Seismology. His Geophysics study incorporates themes from Mechanics and Mantle wedge. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Seismic array, Transition zone and Collision zone.
His Mantle convection study is concerned with Lithosphere in general. His research investigates the connection between Subduction and topics such as Slab that intersect with problems in Slab pull. His Seismology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Slip and Pulse.
His main research concerns Geophysics, Mantle, Seismology, Subduction and Lithosphere. The concepts of his Geophysics study are interwoven with issues in Asthenosphere, Mantle convection, Mantle wedge and Anisotropy. Thorsten W. Becker combines subjects such as Geodynamics, Convection, Ocean surface topography and Hotspot with his study of Mantle.
Thorsten W. Becker studied Seismology and Slip that intersect with Geodesy. His Subduction research includes elements of Slab, Tectonophysics, Petrology and Crust. His study focuses on the intersection of Lithosphere and fields such as Plate tectonics with connections in the field of Seafloor spreading.
Thorsten W. Becker mainly focuses on Mantle, Petrology, Mantle convection, Lithosphere and Geophysics. As a member of one scientific family, Thorsten W. Becker mostly works in the field of Mantle, focusing on Anisotropy and, on occasion, Craton. His Petrology research includes themes of Subduction, Mantle wedge and Grain size.
The Mantle convection study combines topics in areas such as Mechanics, Mountain formation, Ocean surface topography and Plate tectonics. The various areas that Thorsten W. Becker examines in his Lithosphere study include Slab, South American Plate, Orogeny and Transition zone. As part of the same scientific family, Thorsten W. Becker usually focuses on USArray, concentrating on Shear wave imaging and intersecting with Seismology.
Thorsten W. Becker mostly deals with Mantle, Tectonics, Mantle convection, Lithosphere and Geophysics. Thorsten W. Becker interconnects Subduction, Petrology and Isotopic signature in the investigation of issues within Mantle. The subject of his Tectonics research is within the realm of Seismology.
His research in Mantle convection intersects with topics in Mechanics, Ocean surface topography and Plate tectonics. His study in Slab extends to Lithosphere with its themes. The study incorporates disciplines such as Geodynamics, Surface and Convection in addition to Geophysics.
