The Department of Geosciences was formed in 2003 as a merger between the three earth sciences departments: the Geology Department, the Department of Physical Geography and the Department of Geophysics. The merger resulted in the widest ranging earth sciences department in Norway, covering a wide range of disciplines from deep mantle processes to atmospheric sciences.
