EarthFlows Meeting 2022: Program

The EarthFlows Meeting is an annual event on its 8th 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 15th and 16th of June 2022.

The EarthFlows meeting is a two day international conference, with the intention of bringing together top researchers from various disciplines (geoscience, mathematics, material science, theoretical and experimental physics), who have different perspectives on interface dynamics, flows and deformations during solid and fluid earth processes.

Below you will find the program for this year's meeting.
