A model for absolute plate motion and true polar wander on Earth for the past 540 million years has been developed by researchers from Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics - CEED, UiO
Meteorites are constantly falling down onto the Earth. But we have little knowledge about where they come from or of their age. Now CEED researchers have managed to find where on Mars the shergottites originated from - and determined that they are more than 4 billion years old.
Water vapour is a strong greenhouse gas, clean drinking water is scarce in many parts of the world and the ocean is an important transport agent for heat. A changing climate may therefore influence the distribution of icecaps and glaciers as well as give rise to strong socioeconomic consequences many places. Read more about our climate research.

Department of Geosciences is one of the partners in the SUCCESS Centre - (SUbsurface CO2 storage – Critical Elements and Superior Strategy). The SUCCESS centre is one of the Norwegian Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME). The main purpose of the centre is to gather sufficient knowledge to store CO2 underground, safely and permanently. The centres annual report for 2013 activities is now online.
