While the majority of the Centre for Deep Sea researchers have gone out to the Norwegian Sea this summer to study seafloor processes and hydrothermal vents, Desiree Roerdink flew to the other side of the world to do exactly the same thing – in rocks that are more than three billion years old.
The first-known, off-axis, high-temperature deep-sea hydrothermal vents along a portion of the northern East Pacific Rise are hotter and cover more area than any other hydrothermal vents studied to date along this section of the mid-ocean ridge. The discovery demonstrates that there are more hydrothermal vents in the deep-sea than previously thought, and underscores the need for high-resolution... Read more
Last week we received the good news of the award of 3 new projects. A 4SWIND project with Haflidi Haflidason as project manager and two projects funded by - The DeepReservoir project where Christian Eide is project manager. This concerns chlorite deposits in sandstone reservoirs, and the PALMAR project where Ritske Huismans is involved from GEO, and UiO is the coordinator. Where they will... Read more
On Friday 17. June Edoseghe Osagiede defended his thesis "The structural evolution of rift fault networks: From pre-existing structural controls to topological characterisation of the northern North Sea Rift System"
The R/V G.O. Sars has reached day 5 of its 10 day cruise to the offshore wind sites Utsira Nord and Sørlige Nordsjø II in the North Sea.
Friday 10th of June R/V G.O. Sars set its course towards the southern North Sea to start UiB's first scientific cruise to investigate ground conditions for foundations and anchoring of offshore wind farms.
The first week in June UIB GEO has been hosting the Summer School for the Marie Curie Innovative Training Project "S2S Future: Signal Propagation from Source to Sink for the Future of Earth Resources and Energy". 13 PhD candidates have come from universities in France, Germany, UK, Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Switzerland to learn and work together in western Norway.
Here you will find the results from the department council election at GEO for 2022
A short communication from our colleagues on board :)
For three full days, 15 high school students from all over the country have been to the Department of Geosciences to learn more about geosciences.
Researchers demonstrate how we can make use of pores to solve some of the greatest challenges before us – such as the global climate crisis.
Researchers from the Department of Earth Science of the University of Bergen explain in a paper published in Nature Communications how exhumed mantle domes form at magma-poor continental margins and at ultra-slow mid-oceanic spreading systems controlled by frictional shear zones.
A recent article from Tor Einar Møller on exploring how microbes can shed light on ancient climate conditions has been featured on a SCIPOD episode.
