Mighty floods have carved out deep canyons on Earth. New research suggests this may have required less power than previously thought. Collecting such data, however, may be demanding.
The UN Ocean Science Decade gets off to a flying start through the University of Bergen’s new interdisciplinary SEAS Fellowship Programme. For the next 5 years, UiB will be training a new generation of marine research leaders and decision makers to ensure sustainable oceans.
Invitation to the EPOS-Norway (EPOS-N) Final Workshop sharing the outcomes and achievements of the EPOS-N project in the areas of Solid Earth data integration and e-infrastructure, and Solid Earth monitoring in the Artic.
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.
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 the work he has been leading.
Modeling and inversion of seismic data using multiple scattering, renormalization and homotopy methods.
Temperature in the Southern Ocean was more tightly linked to the extent of Antarctic glaciation during past greenhouse climates than previously thought.
The effects of magmatic intrusions on temperature history and diagenesis in sedimentary basins and petroleum systems.
The Jebsen Centre has a new PhD candidate starting today!
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.
Last month Andreas Beinlich had a publication in Nature Geoscience, and this month we are happy to announce that a new publication from Jebsen Centre researchers is out in Nature Geoscience: Today Jo Brendryen, Bjarte Hannisdal, and Kristian Agasøster Haaga published “Eurasian Ice Sheet collapse was a major source of Meltwater Pulse 1A 14,600 years ago”.
Andreas Beinlich, the latest addition to the K.G. Jebsen Centre for Deep Sea Research, has published an article in Nature Geoscience, titled "Instantaneous rock transformations in the deep crust driven by reactive fluid flow".
Want to learn about how methane and organic compounds form in Earth's lithosphere? Look no further!
MSc. Jonathan Winfieldd Rheinlænder ved Institutt for geovitenskap og Bjerknessenteret for klimaforskning disputerte fredag 17. januar med avhandlingen: "The role of ocean circulation and sea ice in abrupt climate change"
iEarth becomes one of the Norwegian Centres of Excellence in Education. The University of Bergen now hosts two of the prestigious centres that focus on innovative and forward-looking education.
