The Research Council of Norway has funded seven new national research schools on free topics for the period 2016-2023. One of them is the Norwegian Research School for Dynamics and Evolution of Earth and Planets, which will be hosted by the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED), University of Oslo.
Three researchers from CEED are awarded prizes from the European Geosciences Union (EGU). Two of the prizes will be formal given to the prize winners at EGUs 2016 General Assembly in Vienna (17–22 April). See the three EGU-prize winners here.
Professor Trond Helge Torsvik, Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo and director of CEED received officially the renowned Leopold von Buch Plakette for his outstanding scientific contributions to increasing our understanding of geodynamics. Venue was GeoBerlin2015.
For six weeks over summer, the University of Oslo hosts the annual International Summer School. In its 69th year, the summer session of 2015 saw 598 students from 89 countries participating in over twenty different courses. CEED contributed to coordinate one of the courses - A Changing Arctic - which this year had 15 participants.
In September 2015 it is 100 years since one of the fathers of the modern meteorology was born - Arnt Eliassen (9.9.1915 – 22.4.2000). This is celebrated by DNVA and UiO with a seminar on how fundamental science can change the society. Eliassen is known among other topics for his research on dynamic metheorology, and important contributions to numerical weather forecast.
