Geophysics group contributes to VISTA Centre

The Geophysics group is involved in the VISTA Centre for Modelling of Coupled Subsurface Dynamics

The VISTA centre is a multidisciplinary research centre funded by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.

Main content

The research center CSD targets how the subsurface is deformed as a result of injection and production of fluids. This occurs in production of hydrocarbons and geothermal energy, storage of energy or CO2 in the subsurface, or by disposal of wastewater. In VISTA CSD, the geophysics group is currently focusing on the development of methodology for seismic imaging, micro-seismic source localization and quantification of the earthquake risk related to CO2 storage.
