The Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED) at University of Oslo, Norway 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.
CEED started in 2013 with about 20 full-time scientists and postdoctoral researches, and is building on a large network of collaborations.
CEED's research themes and working groups have unique logotypes, designet by Fabio Crameri. The logotypes may be used by CEED researchers.
