The CLIPT lab at the University of Oslo provides stable isotope measurements on natural materials, and this month marks 3 years since opening for analyses.
Researcher and geologist Grace Shephard from CEED and Department of Geosciences, University of Oslo has been selected to be the Norwegian representative in the Marine Working Group in the International Arctic Science Committee, IASC.
Else-Ragnhild Neumann Award for Women in Geosciences is awarded for the 3rd time, and this year it goes to Dr Ágnes Király, CEED, UiO. The award is given to a PhD or Postdoctoral Fellow who has given a significant contribution to research in geosciences.
The two most recent Norwegian meteorites, “Oslo” and “Valle”, are now officially classified and registered in the international meteoritical database. Only now, the scientific community consider it real although it fall felt for some Oslo citizens real since quite a while.
Professor Clint Conrad of the Dept. of Geosciences, University of Oslo and CEED has been awarded the Evguene Burov Medal by the International Lithosphere Program.
Friday 22. Nov. was the Else-Ragnhild Neumann Award for Women in Geosciences awarded for the second time. The award goes to a woman who through her Ph.D. or postdoctoral work has made a significant contribution to geoscientific research. The award is presented by CEED and the Dept. of Geosciences, UiO, and it was Andreia Plaza-Faverola, UiT, who became the award winner for 2019.
Professor of geophysics Trond H. Torsvik from CEED and the Department of Geosciences, and Professor II of meteorology Michael Schultz, the GEO-department and The Norwegian Meteorological Institute appear on the Web of Science Group's list over global highly cited researchers. The list is based on citation on the 1 % top articles by field for 2008-18.
Members of the MAGPIE (Magnetotelluric Analysis for Greenland and Postglacial Isostatic Evolution) project at Dept. of Geosciences & CEED have spent much of June on the ice sheet of Greenland. Now nearing its completion, the campaign was a great success and has been documented day-by-day on the MAGPIE blog.
This past week, 14 international and interdisciplinary early career researchers from all over the world met in the fjord-side town of Drøbak, south of Oslo. The #YoungCEED18 workshop - the first of its kind under the “Young CEED” initiative - aimed for a fresh take on the enigmatic process of how new subduction zones form.
Volcanic activity primarily focuses at plate boundaries on Earth. But volcanoes can also form far away from plate boundaries due to plumes of hot material rising from the Earth’s deep interior. Eventually this material reaches the surface and breaks through the Earth’s crust to form a volcano – a so-called “hotspot”. Scientists now present a theory of how this type of hotspot activity can explain massive, past volcanic eruptions in Greenland and in the North Atlantic region.
