At Öræfajökull on the saga island Iceland, it may be a bit of an ancient continent. The area is well known because it stands out from the rest of Icelands geological characteristics. Researchers from the Centre for Earth Development and Dynamics - CEED - have in their article in PNAS launched a theory about that the area remains of an ancient continent perhaps a bit of Greenland. The article has got attention in the media.

CEED is part of a new Research School on “Changing climates in the coupled earth system” (CHESS) which received 19.5 million kroner from the Norwegian Research Council (NFR) to educate PhD students in Norway on various topics related to present and past climates.

Publisert 30. mars 2015 16:13

NFR has recently granted money for a new research school CHESS, and an adjunct professor position at the Department of Geosciences, UiO. The grant is meant to strengthen the collaboration between the earth science communities at the Universities of Oslo and Bergen and to place the Norwegian studies in paleoclimate at the forefront of international research. CEED researchers will be important collaborators in the work.
