The PhD course "Arctic tectonics, volcanism and climate" was held early August in the high north. The intensive week-long course held in Longyearbyen, Svalbard, brought together 15 students and 11 lecturers from 9 universities around the world. The course was funded through the DEEP Research School and the NOR-R-AM project, and UNIS.
DEEP offers members travel and research grants for activities highly relevant for you PhD project. Next deadline for DEEP grants is 15 June 2018.
DEEP congratulates former DEEP PhD members having finalized and successfully defended their theses.
The 2nd DEEP general assembly took place in March 2018 on Hurtigruten travelling up the coast of Norway from Bergen to Trondheim. This was an excellent arena for the 50 participants to meet and discuss cutting-edge research ideas and methods on the field of dynamics and evolution of the earth and planets.
The intensive DEEP course GEO-DEEP9100 on planetary physics and global tectonics will be offered Oslo 24 - 28 September 2018.
August 3 - 10 2018 the Norwegian research school DEEP offers an intensive course on Arctic tectonics, volcanism and climate addressing the diverse geological history of the Arctic region, including both onshore and offshore regions from Paleozoic to recent times.
As a PhD student member you have the opportunity to apply DEEP for travel and research grants for activities not offered by DEEP and relevant for your PhD.
The upcoming application deadline for DEEP travel and research grant for 2018 is 15 January.
Together with a network of seven research schools, DEEP offers an intensive 3-day PhD course in science communication from 24 - 26 January 2018 in Bergen.
DEEP is organizing the PhD workshop "Writing for Scholars" in Spring 2018. The workshop will increase your understanding of what scholarly writing is all about, how you can get more out of the writing process, and how you can most effectively reach your audience.
The Norwegian research school DEEP offers an intensive PhD course on Solid Earth - Fluid Earth Interactions (5 ETCS credits) 16 - 20 April, 2018, in Oslo.
I am a first year PhD candidate in geodynamics at the University of Bergen. My project evaluates the concept of metamorphic core complexes for the Devonian collapse of the Caledonian Orogen in SW Norway. In metamorphic core complexes, deep crustal rocks (the so-called “metamorphic core”) are being exhumed below extensional shear zones and exhibit a close interaction between deep and shallow crustal processes. Furthermore, such structures can significantly influence subsequent tectonic phases like the Mesozoic North Sea rift in case of SW Norway.
DEEP members are invited to participate at the intensive course GEO-8131 Deformation processes (5 ECTS credits) at University of Tromsø. The course will take place from 26 February to 2 March 2018.
Registration deadline for the course is: 1 December 2017.
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.
The CHESS Research School invites DEEP members to join their Advanced Statistics Training course at the University of Bergen in August.
I was invited to attend a research trip organised by a group of Australian ore geology experts to the Broken Hill district, Australia. Broken Hill, discovered in 1884, is the largest Pb-Zn-Ag deposit in the world, and 250 million tonnes of high-grade ore has been produced from the 8 km long boomerang shaped ore body. The deposit is hosted by a sequence of metavolcanic to metasedimentary rocks in the Palaeoproterozoic Curnamona province, formed at about 1685 Ma.
