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.

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.
Every year the PhD student members of DEEP will elect their own representatives in the DEEP steering board. For 2017/2018 Geertruida ter Maat and Joost van den Broek was elected.
In February 2017 thirty members of the research school DEEP gathered at Dr. Holms Hotel, Geilo for the first General Assembly in the research school network. Networking, lectures and a workshop were on the agenda, and some skiing of course.
Participants at our 1st General Assembly in February will have the exclusive opportunity to listen to inspiring talks by Professor Charles Lesher from Aarhus University and Professor Trond H. Torsvik from CEED, University of Oslo.
First week of November the Norwegian Research School DEEP arranged its very first intensive course for PhD students. The course Planetary Physics and Global Tectonics is the first in a series of new courses established by the school.
We are happy to inform that Hanne H. Christiansen from UNIS and Charles Lesher from Aarhus University have said yes to join our steering board as external members for the next two years. Their long scientific experience will benefit us greatly as we are building up our research school.
DEEP partners at Aarhus University are offering a unique two week course for PhD students 3 – 14 October. They gather PhD students working in both petrology and geophysics from around the world. The application deadline for 2016 is 26 August!
In the beginning of May all national partners and collaborators gathered in Oslo for the very first DEEP meeting. Apart from getting information about DEEP, we discussed the management of our research school, themes for workshops, structure of our General Assembly and recruiting strategies.
To offer PhD students within solid earth and planetary sciences a better course portfolio we have established four new courses at CEED, UiO, that will be open to all DEEP members.
In April 2016 DEEP hosted the very first course for the research school. The 20 participating students were from a wide range of European institutions.
Hans Jørgen Kjøll has won the 2015 'Outstanding Student Poster award of the Tectonics and Structural Geology Division'.
The Research Council of Norway has funded seven new national research schools on free topics for the period 2016-2023. One of them is the Norwegian Research School for Dynamics and Evolution of Earth and Planets, which will be hosted by the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED), University of Oslo.
