Department of Earth Science

Ta bachelor i geovitenskap

Department of Earth Science (GEO)'s overall goal is to develop new knowledge of the Earth's structure, formation history and the driving forces for its dynamic behavior. 

 

The research activities at the department of Earth Science (GEO) are concentrated in thematic groups; Geophysics, Geodynamics and Basin Studies, Geochemistry & Geobiology, and Quaternary Geology and Paleoclimate.

Education: The Department of Earth Science offers education in several fields within the earth sciences, offering programs from 2 to 8 years duration.

    Demise of a glacier, uncovering a fjord

    Demise of a glacier, uncovering a fjord

    When the last ice age was over, a large glacier covering the 1000 meter deep Hardangerfjord collapsed. These events at the end of the ice age in Norway, resemble what we are about to witness in today’s Greenland.

    Climate changed abruptly as the Nordic Seas turned rapidly from a white to a blue ocean

    Widespread sea ice decline happened within 250 years or less and unleashed abrupt climate change during the last glacial period, a new study shows. This documents that the cause for the rapidity and severity of abrupt changes during the last glacial resides in the ocean. Henrik Sadatzki writes about...

    Coupling of Southern Ocean and Antarctica during a past greenhouse

    Temperature in the Southern Ocean was more tightly linked to the extent of Antarctic glaciation during past greenhouse climates than previously thought.

    Abrupt warming caused ice collapse and sea level rise

    Near the end of the last ice age, the global sea level rose 12–14 meters in less than 350 years. Most of the meltwater has been thought to have come from North America and Antarctica. A new study shows that the ice over coastal Norway and the Barents Sea may have contributed almost as much.
