Den årlige feltturen i GEOV107-"Innføring i sedimentologi" ble avholdt i forrige uke, og gikk som vanlig til Sorbas i Spania. 71 studenter og 5 ansatte ved GEO var med. Se flere bilder på Facebook.
Martin Kjenes had on 14. November his trial lecture "On the interplay between magmatism and earthquakes". Martin will defend his PhD thesis next week, on Friday 24. November.
In June a group of eight master students and one PhD-candidate in geology and geophysics did field and computer lab work in Aínsa, Spain.
This spring 16 students from our department participated in the "GEOV252 Field Course in Geological Mapping" to Elba.
On Monday 19. June 2023 Åse Hestnes defended her PhD thesis: The post-Caledonian tectono-thermal evolution of Western Norway
On Friday 16. June 2023 Vilde Dimmen defended her PhD thesis "Geologic controls on fluid flow and seismic imaging of faults in carbonate rocks - Insights from quantitative outcrop analysis and reflection seismic modelling"
A new study authored by Björn Nyberg and colleagues offers the world's first comprehensive classification of river channel belts at a 30-meter resolution.
The second week in April the DeepReservoir team was in the Ravenglass Estuary just north of Liverpool, with project partners from AkerBP, Equinor and the Universities of Oslo, Delft and Liverpool.
17.-20. April the field part of GEOV102 was held in fantastic weather at Herdla and at Ulven. Eager students have worked independently in the field and have logged sediment profiles, studied beach deposits, collected georadar data, taken sediment cores and carried out structural geological mapping at Ulven.
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.
