November 6 - 10 2017 the Norwegian research school DEEP offers an intensive course on the composition and evolution of the lithosphere and asthenosphere in Oslo with Valerie Maupin as lecturer.
September 11 - 15 2017 the Norwegian research school DEEP offers an intensive course on large igneous provinces and their environmental impacts in Oslo. Henrik Svensen, Trond Torsvik and Hope Jahren are among the lecturers.
May 8-13 Reidar Trønnes offers his 5 ECTS intensive course Deep Earth and Planetary Mineralogy and Dynamics at CEED in Oslo.
The main objective of the course is to give students a comprehensive overview of the Earth magnetism at the present time (geomagnetism) and in the geologic past (paleomagnetism), including its applications for reconstructing the paleogeography through geologic time, which lays down the essential foundation for our understanding of the evolution and dynamics of the Earth at planetary scale.
Plate Tectonics operate by localizing deformation at plate boundaries on all scales. In order to understand and model plate tectonics, we need to understand the fundamental processes of deformation operating in the Earth. It is the objective of this course to teach these processes and how they are manifested in rocks. The course will use examples from experiments and natural occurrences and will illustrate their use in a more quantitative study of rock deformation.
The course will give an introduction to the physics and tectonic processes that govern the properties and evolution of the Earth and other planets.
