On Saturday, March 17, Stein-Erik Lauritzen and Nele Meckler will be leaving for fieldwork in Borneo, Malaysia
During the last month 12 postdocs, researchers and associate professors of the Department of Earth Science have registered as «experts» to evaluate EU project proposals. This is the result of a longterm strategy to increase the number and the quality of project proposals submitted to the European Commission’s frame programs. Thus, evaluating proposal is the best training course a researcher will... Read more
Ægir is the only usable resource in search for airplane and shipwreck in deep water
Researchers at KG Jebsen Centre for Deep Sea Research are involved in Biotech projects to search for and utilize enzymes from the AMOR hydrothermal vent fields.
“We have been trying to do this trip for five years and we have had a lot of issues with ice,” says expedition leader Jostein Bakke, head of the Quaternary Earth Systems group at Department of Earth Science

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.
