A collection of minerals and mineral descriptions – The Planetary Terrestrial Analogues Library (PTAL) will help scientists understand the surface of Mars. The resource is now ready for ESA's next Mars rover mission (probably postponed until 2028), and is physically located at UiO. The PTAL project is led by Professor Stephanie Werner, who was recently interviewed by sciencenorway.no.

I løpet av de tre månedene La Palma utbruddet vedvarte, strømmet forskere til øya for å observere og lære mer om dynamikken til vulkanutbrudd. Også norske geologer og forskere på vulkaner og geofysikk reiste til Kanariøyene for å studere utbruddet.
