What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Plate tectonics
  • Volcano
  • Global Positioning System

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Seismology, Geodesy, Plate tectonics, Global Positioning System and Tectonics. The study of Seismology is intertwined with the study of Slip in a number of ways. In the subject of general Geodesy, his work in Geodetic datum is often linked to Data processing, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

His Plate tectonics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Submarine pipeline and Pacific Plate. His Global Positioning System research includes themes of White noise, Seismic hazard and Latitude. The various areas that he examines in his Tectonics study include Remote sensing and Geomorphology.

His most cited work include:

  • REVEL: A model for Recent plate velocities from space geodesy (884 citations)
  • Noise in GPS coordinate time series (570 citations)
  • Present‐day motion of the Sierra Nevada block and some tectonic implications for the Basin and Range province, North American Cordillera (313 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Timothy H. Dixon mainly focuses on Seismology, Geodesy, Global Positioning System, Interferometric synthetic aperture radar and Subduction. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Slip and Crust. His specific area of interest is Geodesy, where Timothy H. Dixon studies Geodetic datum.

His Global Positioning System study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Geodynamics, Meteorology and Volcano. The Interferometric synthetic aperture radar study combines topics in areas such as Hydrology, Wetland, Bedrock and Subsidence. His Subduction research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Submarine pipeline, Ridge, Lithosphere and Peninsula.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Seismology (37.45%)
  • Geodesy (22.98%)
  • Global Positioning System (18.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2020)?

  • Geodesy (22.98%)
  • Seismology (37.45%)
  • Geomorphology (7.66%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Geodesy, Seismology, Geomorphology, Slip and Global Positioning System. His Geodesy research incorporates elements of Buoy, Deformation, Interferometry, Radar and Remote sensing. Shear zone, Fault and Slip rate are among the areas of Seismology where he concentrates his study.

His Shear zone study also includes

  • Seismic hazard, which have a strong connection to Tectonics, Active fault, Plate tectonics and Alluvial fan,
  • Geodetic datum and related Fracture zone and Interferometric synthetic aperture radar. As part of his studies on Slip, Timothy H. Dixon often connects relevant areas like Subduction. He has included themes like Motion, Bridge, Structural engineering, Waves and shallow water and Spar buoy in his Global Positioning System study.

Between 2015 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Recent increases in Arctic freshwater flux affects Labrador Sea convection and Atlantic overturning circulation (93 citations)
  • Correction: Corrigendum: Recent increases in Arctic freshwater flux affects Labrador Sea convection and Atlantic overturning circulation (67 citations)
  • Subsidence along the Atlantic Coast of North America: Insights from GPS and late Holocene relative sea level data (45 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Plate tectonics
  • Volcano
  • Climate change

His scientific interests lie mostly in Geomorphology, Oceanography, Front, Sea level and Flux. His study in Oceanography focuses on Ice sheet in particular. His Front study incorporates themes from Glacier and Elevation.

His Elevation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Subsidence, Geodesy, Rotation, Interferometry and Radar. His research in Sea level is mostly concerned with Post-glacial rebound. Timothy H. Dixon interconnects Flooding and Storm surge in the investigation of issues within Post-glacial rebound.
