This summer in July and August some lucky geophysicists had an interesting summer work in the Artic. Spending weeks on the research ship MS Haakon Mosby they did a geophysical survey of the Earth's crust of the Barents Sea. In the research team participated CEED scientists Alexander Minakov and Nina Lebedeva-Ivanova.
The Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED) has temporarily been situated in the Physics building for over one year. Now the centre can move into new offices in the ZEB-Building, Nedre Blindern. The centre will get both a new visiting address and postal address.
Department of Geosciences is one of the partners in the SUCCESS Centre - (SUbsurface CO2 storage – Critical Elements and Superior Strategy). The SUCCESS centre is one of the Norwegian Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME). The main purpose of the centre is to gather sufficient knowledge to store CO2 underground, safely and permanently.
Two PhD students from Department of Geosciences, Section for Meteorology and Oceanography (MetOs), UiO, Lise Seland Graff and Ada Gjermundsen, are first authors of articles recently published in two of the most prestigious journals in atmospheric sciences. The journals are the Journal of Climate and the Journal of Atmospheric Sciences, and the articles appeared online in June 2014. We congratulate them with the articles!
In connection with a project related to teaching and dissemination of geoscience to students in France and Oslo, went the researchers Olivier Galland and Caroline Sassier, both from the Department of Geosciences out on an journey along the Andean Cordillera in South America. They visited 30 geological sites, explored these and communicated what they observed to students via their blog. See photos from the trip in the exhibition: The Andean Geotrail from Feb 27 to 04:15 PM - Apr 30, 2014, Science Library, University of Oslo.
