The Trias North Project has staged several field trips to Svalbard. In 2016 we invited our industrial partners to join us on an excursion. This resulted in a great movie from one of the participating partners, namely Leif Bjørnar Henriksen (Statoil) and his impressions from the field trip to Svalbard this summer of 2016. The film is available at YouTube and is around 30 minutes long.
Fjellene på Svalbard kan løse gåten om hvor oljen er i Barentshavet. Første steg er å beskrive hvordan havbunnen så ut den gangen fiskeøglene regjerte i havet.
Eleven geologists set out from Longyearbyen on the evening of the fourth of August 2014. Their destination – the far eastern island of Egdeøya in the Svalbard archipelago. The team included a newly employed PhD and a PostDoc attached to the Trias North project, along with senior scientific staff and collaborative team-members from as far away as Italy and the USA. The tasks for the team were several on this fieldwork.
We in the Trias North project publish from time to time newsletters with news from the research and activities in the Trias North project. The newsletters are now also available online on web on the Trias North webpages.
