Nye matematiske modeller for den flytende massen i jordas indre kan forklare både klimaet og hvordan jordskorpa så ut i urtiden. Modellene bruker data fra trykkbølger fra de verste jordskjelvene de siste hundre år, og krever store ressurser av tungregnemaskiner som skal kjøre simuleringene. Modellene er utviklet av CEED forskere.

- Geological detectives are piecing together an intriguing seafloor puzzle. The Indian Ocean and some of its islands, scientists say, may lie on top of the remains of an ancient continent pulled apart by plate tectonics between 50 million and 100 million years ago. ScienceNOW. 24.2.2013. CEED researchers are among the detectives.

Professor Trond Helge Torsvik fra Institutt for geofag og hans forskergruppe får støtte fra Forskningrådet til å etablere et nytt Senter for fremragende forskning (SFF) - Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics. Et mål med det nye senteret er å utvikle en modell som forklarer hvordan mantelen i Jordens indre påvirker jordplatenes bevegelser og forårsaker massive vulkanutbrudd som forårsaker endringer i klima og miljø på jorden.
