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.
Forskere ved Universitetet i Bergen og Universitetet i Tromsø har sammenstilt geologiske data knyttet til den siste deglasiasjonen av det Eurasiske isdekket med særlig fokus på sokkelområdene.
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.
The new centre is led by NORCE with UiB as a major partner, together with a range of international institutions, industry and technology providers. Within UiB, GEO, Maths and Physics and Technology are the main departments involved in the centre.

Postdoctor Luisa Zuluaga at GEO was awarded for the best poster at an european workshop for geotermi in Strasbourg. (16.10.2018)
PhD stipendiat Isabel Edmundson was awarded the prize for the best poster at the ARCEx annual conference in Longyearbyen 9 – 11 October (16.10.2018)
This summer a joint team of structural geologists and sedimentologists from UiB and UiT The Arctic University of Norway journeyed across the North Atlantic to visit Wollaston Forland in the northern part of East Greenland. The reason? To investigate an exhumed rift basin, and detail its basin-bounding border fault system, the associated deep-marine basin fill strata, and the diagenetic history of... Read more
