Physics of Geological Processes (PGP)
PGP was a Norwegian Centre of Excellence (CoE) funded by the Research Council of Norway (NFR) from 2003-2013. From 2013, PGP operates as a cross-disciplinary research group that integrates physics and geology. PGP currently gathers scientists from both the Department of Geoscience (PGP group) and the Physics Department (Condensed Matter group) within the University of Oslo.
