We have the pleasure of presenting the following new employees and visitors at the Centre for Geobiology:
A chance discovery of a sunken log on the seabed in the North Atlantic is providing concrete support for the idea that stepping stone habitats may help to explain the diffusion of populations of organisms across the deep seafloor.
Marie Curie Actions provide researchers with stepping stones of new research opportunities.
Focusing on the wealth of information gleaned from the recent Fennoscandian Arctic Russia - Drilling Early Earth Project (FAR-DEEP), “Reading the Archive of Earth’s Oxygenation” is a veritable atlas for current knowledge of a literally life-changing period in Earth’s history.
2013 has begun, and so have the studies of two CGB students in our PhD programme. We are pleased to welcome Jan Vander Roost and Sven Le Moine Bauer to Bergen and to our team.
CGB researcher Dr. Romain Meyer joins IODP vessel JOIDES Resolution to explore evolution and formation of deep oceanic crust
A multidisciplinary team of researchers at the Centre for Geobiology (CGB) have published their findings about how the geochemicial stratification in seafloor sediments correlates with stratification within microbial communities also found there.
Year 2011 has truly been an eventful year for the Centre for Geobiology (CGB).
Cindy Van Dover will give her honorary doctorate lecture Thursday 30 August, in Realfagbyget’s Auditorium 4, at 14:15.
Centre leader Rolf Birger Pedersen was part of a team of international experts aboard the RRS James Cook spring 2010.
Two billion year old rocks are providing information about a period of extreme carbon cycle disruption and the Great Oxidation Event – both critically important to our understanding of Earth’s geological and biological history.
The Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) and the University of Bergen have acquired samples from steep parts of the seabed on the Jan Mayen ridge between Norway and Iceland.
CGB researcher, Bjarte Hannisdal, is co-author of a paper that shows that long-term changes in the diversity of marine animals may have been linked to the earth's geological evolution over the last 500 million years.
The International Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) aims to discover vital information about our Earth System.
Our scientist-at-sea, PhD student Steffen Jorgensen, aboard the JOIDES Resolution has sent his fourth report.
Steffen Jorgensen, a PhD at CGB, will be literally at sea for two months this autumn aboard an international research cruise.
