Within the framework of the EPOS-Norway project, a dedicated web-portal is being developed. As part of this development, on 1-3 November 2017, EPOS-Norway project arranged a workshop in Bergen, where 25 students and scientists attended.
In august this year two scientists from the K.G. Jebsen Centre for Deep Sea Research led a session called "Geobiology of the Deep Ocean and Subsurface: Contributions of the Deep Biosphere to Earth Systems" during the yearly Goldschmidt conference, giving the stage to geochemists, microbiologists and geologists working on deep-sea environments.
Willem van der Bilt is one of the researchers selected to participate in the new Momentum Program, the first early career development program organized at UiB.
She’s both a groundbreaking computer scientist and an excellent teacher; and now she’s awarded the Teaching Prize at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.
This week a team of scientists and drillers will begin the International Ocean Discovery Programme (IODP) expedition to drill the active offshore Corinth Rift in Greece. Researchers Dr Casey Nixon, Dr Sofia Pechlivanidou and Professor Rob Gawthorpe from UiB-GEO form a significant presence within the science party for this exciting expedition.
Thibaut Barreyre at the K.G. Jebsen Centre for Deep Sea research has been appointed to lead a new InterRidge working group focusing on Integrating Multidisciplinary Observations in Vent Environments (IMOVE).
The summer of 2017 a long-term temperature sensors, current meters, pressure gauge and ocean bottom seismometers (OBS) was deployed to look at how natural physical processes (e.g. ocean tides, micro-earthquakes) to constrain subsurface permeability structure beneath Loki’s Castle hydrothermal site.
September 6th to 8th we arranged the MagellanPlus Workshop Series Programme in Bergen, at the K.G. Jebsen Centre for Deep Sea Research. The goal was to discuss to plan and draft up an IODP proposal for JR-style drilling of a series of holes on and off axis of the SKR to assess the cycling of carbon and consequences for life in sediments and shallow basement.
Scientists will look into the heart of Surtsey, an island created 50 years ago by a volcanic eruption.
At the vanguard of deep sea research - leading UiB, Norway, and internationally …
The Glaciated North Atlantic Margins (GLANAM) ITN ended 31. March 2017. One output of the ITN has been a film showing some of the key results.
Please remember our session when considering attending the Goldschmidt conference in Paris this year (August 13-18)!
