His main research concerns Turbidity current, Turbidite, Geomorphology, Sedimentary depositional environment and Facies. He combines subjects such as Turbulence, Mechanics and Geotechnical engineering with his study of Turbidity current. He has researched Turbidite in several fields, including Aggradation, Flow velocity and Clastic rock.
His Clastic rock research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Petroleum reservoir, Foreland basin, Outcrop and Debris. His study on Facies is covered under Structural basin. His work carried out in the field of Sedimentary rock brings together such families of science as Sediment gravity flow and Petrology.
Turbidity current, Turbidite, Geomorphology, Paleontology and Sedimentary depositional environment are his primary areas of study. He has included themes like Turbulence, Mechanics, Flow, Flow velocity and Geotechnical engineering in his Turbidity current study. His Turbidite research includes elements of Debris flow, Deposition, Petrology and Clastic rock.
His Geomorphology study typically links adjacent topics like Current. His study in the field of Structural basin, Sedimentary rock, Foreland basin and Overbank also crosses realms of Passive margin. His Sedimentary depositional environment research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Outcrop, Facies and Flysch.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Paleontology, Sedimentary rock, Structural basin, Turbidity current and Petrology. His Sedimentary rock study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Texture, Subduction and Sediment. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Structural basin, Sedimentary depositional environment, Siliciclastic, Channelized and Facies is strongly linked to Outcrop.
His Turbidity current research incorporates elements of Gravity current, Flow velocity, Seabed, Turbidite and Mechanics. In his work, Pulse propagation is strongly intertwined with Geophysics, which is a subfield of Turbidite. His studies deal with areas such as Erosion and Geomorphology as well as Substrate.
William D. McCaffrey mainly investigates Petrology, Structural basin, Flow, Aggradation and Continental shelf. His work on Petrology is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Sedimentary rock. His Structural basin study is focused on Paleontology in general.
His study looks at the intersection of Flow and topics like Sediment transport with Erosion. In his study, Turbidite is inextricably linked to Clastic rock, which falls within the broad field of Erosion. His work in Aggradation addresses subjects such as Tectonics, which are connected to disciplines such as Sedimentary depositional environment.
