Eric Salomon – Based at the University of Mainz, Germany, I conducted my PhD thesis and a year of post-doctoral research dealing with the tectonic evolution of onshore passive margins along the South Atlantic. Focus was on the comparison of the NW Namibian and southern Brazilian margins with respect to basement inheritance on rifting and stress evolution since continental breakup.
Just now in October, I joined the BRS group of the UiB to turn my research towards the northern hemisphere. As part of the research collaboration ARCEx, which aims at understanding geology and resource potential of the Barents Sea, I will work together with Atle Rotevatn on basin-bounding fault systems cropping out at the surface. Here I will immerse in the subject of fluid circulation within these structures. Field localities will be first along the Miocene grabens within the Menderes Massif of western Turkey and then along the East Greenland rift in – well – eastern Greenland.
You can find me in room 3A10D.
Å studere gir svært mange muligheter og i PåVei har vi fokus på disse mulighetene:

Til emneansvarlige ved Institutt for geovitenskap,
Det nærmer seg et nytt budsjettår, og vi trenger et overslag over forventede kostnader til undervisning i vår- og høstsemesteret 2018. Vi ber derfor de undervisningsansvarlige for hvert enkelt emne om å komme med et kostnadsoverslag på vedlagte skjema. Vi ber om dere tar spesielt hensyn til endring av undervisningsform og antall studenter i deres overslag.

Christos Pennos: I completed my Ph.D. in Geology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece) in 2014. The subject of my dissertation was the “Landscape evolution of Menikio Mountain (Macedonia, Greece) based on morphological and sedimentological analyses of caves”, including landscape geomorphic analysis and paleoclimatic reconstruction through speleothem records. In 2015, I received an 18 month long personal EU grant from the IKY-EEA funding scheme under the theme “Integrated Management of Sea and Inland Waters”. During this period, I worked on Maaras cave (Aggitis River springs) where, I created a 3d subsurface model, based on which I developed a speleogenetic conceptual model for its evolution in relation to the geomorphic development of the fluvial valley. Now you can find me in room 3152, 3RD floor, working as postdoctoral researcher on the FOPAK project where I will work closely with Professor S-E Lauritzen on karst/cave types/geometries, representing different tectonostratigraphic settings, in order to construct a suite of paleokarst reservoir models.
Thibaut Barreyre – I am a former graduate student at Ecole Normale Supérieure and Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris, a former Postdoctoral Scholar at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and a former Postdoctoral Investigator at IFREMER. I am currently Adjunct Scientist at the department of Geology and Geophysics of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, USA, and I recently joined UiB and K.G. Jebsen Centre for Deep Sea Research as a researcher in Marine Geophysics and Fluid Dynamics. My main research focuses on mid-ocean ridge processes, with special interest on the interplay between fluid flow and geological and oceanographic processes in porous media. I approach this topic through a mix of observational work (field and laboratory), data analysis, and modeling (analytical and numerical) with the aim of integrating and reconciling complex flow observations into a coherent theoretical framework. I am especially intrigued in the mechanisms that perturb –periodically or episodically– fluid flow by changing the thermal and/or stress conditions of the sub-surface crust on short time scales. You can find me in room 4102 so don’t hesitate to reach out!

Håvard Hallås Stubseid – I started working in the administration at GEO in September 2017, in a six months temporary position. I have just handed in the thesis for my Master`s degree in Geochemistry and Petrology, and graduated in the middle of October. My project concerned geochemical and geochronological investigation of the ophiolitic terrane in the Hardangerfjord area, in SW Norway. My tasks at GEO will concern schedules for all courses and administration of exams at the institute. I have my office in the third floor, room 3104, behind the reception.
