In this paper, we develop a general framework for an evolutionary variational-hemivariational inequality coupled with a differential equation. The framework is adapted to a frictional contact problem with applications in earth sciences. In here we present an approximation of the so-called rate-and-state friction law and prove that the coupled system is well-posed.
The Geomicrobiology Laboratory at UiB becomes the first public laboratory in Norway to receive the environmental certification from My Green Lab. The work on the certification has been done with support from the UiB Climate Fund.
As the CULTIVATE project has entered its final year, it was time for the project's third in-person meeting. After visiting the biosphere reserves Trebon Basin and West-Estonian Archipelago previous years, members of the UNESCO Chair Group and the biosphere coordinators from Nordhordland UNESCO Biosphere Reserve were happy to finally greet our colleagues in Western Norway.
The VISTA Center for Modeling of Coupled Subsurface Dynamics (CSD) received its first report from its Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), offering praise and constructive guidance.
After six months at the Centre, research interns Catharina Kolner and Célestine Allombert-Blaise are off to the next steps of their path as young scientists. With their dedication and enthusiasm, they have made invaluable contributions to their respective research projects.
