The EarthFlows research group is hosting a short winter seminar for its network members Friday 6th of December. Keynote speaker is Jerome Weiss from Institut des Sciences de la Terre, France. The seminar is open for all interested. See the full programme here.
Liquefaction is a serious earthquake hazard. Under shaking, naturally saturated granular media (soils, fault gouge) that usually supports shear stress like a solid, may start to flow like a fluid. This phenomena is not well understood nor predicted. Einat Aharonov will present a numerical study of such a system and explain some of the physics controlling it.
The EarthFlows Meeting is an annual event on its 5th edition, and part of a strategic research initiative for cross-disciplinary research at the University of Oslo, Norway. This year's seminar will be held in Oslo between 19th and 20th of June 2019.
Xiaojiao Zheng at the Department of Geosciences will be defending her dissertation: Reaction-induced fracturing in confined systems
There will be an kick-off meeting for the EarthFlows research group the 14th of February. All participants in the EarthFlows research group and other invited guests are welcome.
