The Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED) is dedicated to research of fundamental importance to the understanding of our planet. The research embraces the dynamics of the plates, the origin of large scale volcanism, the evolution of climates and the abrupt demise of life forms.
This ambitious venture will hopefully result in a new Earth model that explains how mantle processes interact with plate tectonics and trigger massive volcanism and associated environmental and climate changes throughout Earth history.
The Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED) is hosted by the Dept of Geosciences, University of Oslo, Norway. CEED is financed by the Research Council of Norway as a Centre of Excellence over a period of 5 + 5 years after a mid-term evaluation, from 2013 to 2023.
