VISTA Center for Modeling of Coupled Subsurface Dynamics

VISTA CSD

The VISTA Center for Modeling of Coupled Subsurface Dynamics (VISTA CSD) is located at the University of Bergen.  

VISTA CSD’s primary objective is to develop fundamental knowledge and educate next generation researchers to understand how subsurface fluid injection and extraction results in deformation, fault reactivation and fracturing.

The center targets critical and fundamental research questions through mathematical and numerical modeling and data analysis.

VISTA is a basic research programme financed by the Norwegian state owned energy company Equinor, and executed in close cooperation with The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. The center was launched 15 September 2020.

Conducting research on man-made earthquakes

Earthquakes may occur due to human activities, thousands of metres below the Earth’s crust. A new centre at the University of Bergen will find out more about how the substratum has been deformed.
