Intensive course: Solid Earth – Fluid Earth Interactions
11 - 15 May 2020 the Norwegian research school DEEP offers an online intensive PhD course of 5 ECTS credits on Solid Earth - Fluid Earth Interactions. Apply within 15 April 2020 through our online form.
This online intensive PhD course addresses topics like material recycling across the geospheres and how mantle dynamics, volcanism, plate tectonics influences long-term, global environmental and climatic changes.
After completing this course, you will have obtained fundamental knowledge of
- formation and evolution of hydrosphere and atmosphere in relation to solid Earth.
- boundary and interphase definitions (e.g., of the lithosphere-asthenosphere boundary) based on geophysical and mineralogical constraints.
- how the Wilson cycle – the dispersion and formation of supercontinents – is manifested on Earth.
- how various tectonic processes on continents and oceans (linked to sea-floor spreading, sedimentation and erosion, subduction, and volcanism) influence variations of global geochemical cycles.
- links between mantle convection, dynamic topography and anomalous subsidence and uplift on continents and Oceans.
- evolution of oceanic basins and long-term sea-level, oceanographic and climate variations.
Time and place
The course is taught online through the program Zoom from 11 - 15 May 2020.
Carmen Gaina, director of CEED at University of Oslo, is the course responsible for GEO-DEEP9400. She will teach the course together with Adriano Mazzini, Henrik Svensen, Clint Conrad and others from CEED. In addition, she has invited excellent researchers within the field:
- Petr Brož (Institute of Geophysics of the Czech Academy of Sciences)
- Karin Andreassen (CAGE, Centre for Arctic Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate)
- Matteo Lupi (University of Geneva)
Prior to the course
