How the Pacific got its bend
Nov. 9, 2017 10:31 AM
Hawaii sits at the end of a chain of volcanoes running across the Pacific Ocean floor, but in the middle of this chain lies a bend of 60 degrees. For many decades geoscientists have struggled to explain exactly how and why this feature occurred around 50 Million years ago. A new study from CEED, sheds light on this long-standing geological controversy – A massive collision at the edge of the Pacific Ocean was the culprit.

Floods in southern Norway seen by European Sentinel Satellites
Oct. 26, 2017 12:34 PM
Southern Norway has been hit several times by exceptionally heavy rain and following flooding in October 2017. The cloud cover during such rain events makes it difficult to get an overview over the flooded areas from air and space. But the new European Sentinel 1A and 1B radar satellites can look through the clouds, and give an accurate and timely overview over the affected areas
