The first presentation was given by Elin Darelius about her recent fieldwork on the Fimbul ice shelf. She and a group of... Read more
The Research Council of Norway recently announced a significant investment in a new research center on carbon capture, transport, and storage (CCS) in Norway, of which the porous media group is a proud partner. gigaCCS is a Centre for Environment-Friendly Energy Research (FME) that will develop Norway's CCS competence and contribute to the global implementation of CCS on a gigatonne scale.
The International Association of Cryptological Research (IACR) elected Vincent in 2019 and Claude in 2022 as IACR fellows for their contributions and services to the community.
According to the Study Barometer, those who study Data Security are among the university's most satisfied.
Last week, four members of the Centre for Deep Sea Research led a field excursion for the GEOV-109 Introduction to Geochemistry course at a former pyrite mine in Sunnhordland Geopark.
Amidst the festivities of One Ocean Week, researchers from the Michael Sars Centre embraced the opportunity to engage with the public on Family Day and participate in the Ocean Outlook conference.
Tundra ecosystems hold vast amounts of carbon, which is projected to be released into the atmosphere under climate warming. Researchers from the department of Biological Sciences contributed to this important and alarming new paper in Nature, led by researchers from Umeå University in Sweden.
A new study in Nature collects large datasets from tundra around the world, showing how reveals how a warming climate might shift the tundra environment from a carbon sink to a carbon source.
The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences' new honorary doctor, Christopher Aiden-Lee Jackson, is honored for his research that has significantly impacted our understanding of earthquakes, volcanism, and the extraction of natural resources.
