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.
This workshop brings together scientists who work on maturation and deformation processes in shales. It is funded through the project "Prometheus" in the framework of the program Petromaks 2 of the Norwegian Research Council.
This is a closed event
The LASI VI Workshop and conference will be held in Malargüe, Mendoza Province, Argentina, 25-26 November 2019. The theme for this years conference is “The physical geology of subvolcanic systems: laccoliths, sills and dykes”.
Assistant professor David Wallis, of Department of Earth Sciences, Utrecht University will present a new model for transient creep of olivine.
At the poster session we will have a look at some of our researchers' most recent posters and our new junior researchers will present their themselves and their projects.

A Njord/PoreLab Seminar.
Benoit Coasne is a CNRS Research director at Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire de Physique, University Grenoble Alpes. He has done a lot of work on porous media and molecular simulation.
As part of her PhD, Marthe Grønlie Guren will do a presentation on a review of molecular dynamics simulations.
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.
Doctoral candidate Arianne Juliette Petley-Ragan at the Department of Geosciences, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, is defending the thesis: Earthquakes and Metamorphism in the Lower Crust, for the degree of Philosophiae Doctor.
Le Xu at the Department of Physics will be defending the thesis
"Experimental Observations of Dissolution in Fractures in Circular Geometry"
for the degree of PhD
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.
Ass. prof. Ian Bourg from Princeton University will be visiting us on June 17th, to give a seminar on: "Clay, water, and salt: Controls on the hydrology and mechanics of fine-grained soils and sedimentary rocks".
