CSD Annual meeting

VISTA CSD Annual meeting 29-30 March 2022

On the 29th and 30th of March 2022, VISTA CSD team members at UiB assembled in Solstrand to discuss research plans and progress of research activities under CSD. Volker Oye from NORSAR joined us as a collaborating partner. As a guest speaker, Assoc. Prof. Bjarte Hannisdal from the Department of Earth Science gave a talk on earth systems and challenges they face.

Main content

Five PhD candidates at our two departments gave an update on their research, and we welcomed PhD candidate Daniel Holmen who recently started in his position. Researchers Ivar Stefansson and Omar Duran gave an overview on the developments in their projects. Lars Ottemöller presented the history of earthquake monitoring in Norway. Volker Oye provided an interesting insight into the physics of fracture propagation due to fluid injection. The presentations also involved discussion and question sessions. Activities in which the participants got the chance to get acquainted with each other, accompanied the work events. Below you will find a list of given talks.
