Research at GEO takes place in 5 research groups:
- Quaternary geology and paleoclimate
- Marine geology and geophysics
- Petroleum geoscience
Department of earth science is partner in:
Centre of Excellence (SFF) i Geobiology (http://www.uib.no/geobio/en)
Centre for Climadynamikk (http://skd.bccr.no/)
Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (http://www.bjerknes.uib.no/)
Centre for Integrated Petroleum Research (http://www.uib.no/cipr)
Welcome to the Department of Earth Science
GEO embodies research and research based education - within central geological and geophysical diciplines, specifically marine geoscience, petroleum, climate and earth quake-seismology. The research is conducted on land and sea all over the globe.
The department has more than 110 research positions and 32 technical/administrative positions. Our employees are from more than 30 different countries.
GEO researchers will perform a research cruise onboard R/V G.O. Sars, 16th and the 24th of June, for the GLANAM project.
Director of the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Sismológicas (CENAIS), Bladimir Moreno Toiran, is visiting the Department Of Earth Science
In a new study, scientists suggest that the pattern of ocean circulation was radically altered in the past when climates were warmer.
GEO wish to further improve and develop the link to main collaboration partners.
I completed my master’s degree in Quaternary geology and paleoclimate writing a thesis on climatic developments on the Hardangervidda mountain plateau during the Holocene. The thesis became part of an ongoing research project. The fact that your studies at master’s level often result in publication, I believe, is telling about the quality of education in this field. Quaternary and paleoclimate studies are particularly prominent at the University in Bergen compared to most other universities.
