New collaboration between PGP and American universities on fluid-rock interaction
Researchers from PGP have received a grant from the International Partnerships for Excellent Education and Research (INTPART) programme to investigate fluid-consuming transformation processes in collaboration with three American universities.

Anders Malthe-Sørenssen, Ole Ivar Ulven, Anja Røyne and Bjørn Jamtveit from PGP will work together with researchers from Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, from the University of California in Santa Barbara and from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
In particular, they are interested in how a fluid can penetrate a rock, and how it interacts with it. One important application of this research is the sequestration of CO2 in rocks.
The funds shall be used for exchange of researchers and students, joined field work and a summer school for PhD students.
