Sålangt har 2018 vært preget av omfattende vulkansk aktivitet flere steder i verden, men kun én stor katastrofe sålangt i år. Henrik H Svensen fra CEED og Institutt for geofag skriver om ny forskning om katastrofer forårsaket av vulkaner i spalten Forskningsfronten i Morgenbladet.

Edelgassen helium har viktige bruksområder og etterspørselen er økende, særlig til nedkjøling av super-ledende elektromagneter.  Her fokuserer vi på undersøkelser av mobiliteten til helium gjennom  krystallstrukturen til Jordas mest utbredte mineral, bridgmanitt. Undersøkelsene våre legger grunnlaget for å forstå Jordas dype struktur, tidligste utvikling og dagens bevegelser (dynamikk).

The first thing to catch one’s eye when walking into the brand new Jahren Laboratory on the fifth floor of Kristine Bonnevie’s House at the University of Oslo, are some ultra thin tree cores laid out on a foil mat. They are samples of spruce from Tryvann in Oslo.

“Our lab is in Norway, we are in Norway, and we wanted to investigate things that are important for Norway”, says Anne Hope Jahren.

And what could possibly be more Norwegian than spruce?

The end-Triassic extinction (ETE) is one of the largest mass extinctions in the history of Earth. It has been hypothesized that greenhouse gases released from volcanic activity of the Central Atlantic Magmatic Province (CAMP) triggered the extinction. Researchers from CEED/UiO, have demonstrated that large-scale gas generation followed sill emplacement of CAMP in sedimentary basins in northern Brazil.
