The Earth Dynamics Group at the University of Oslo

Entrance The Earth Dynamics Group was formed in 2009 at the Centre for Physics of Geological Processes (PGP), a Norwegian Centre of Excellence (SFF) at the University of Oslo (UiO). From March 2013, the Earth Dynamics Group became a part of the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED), a new Norwegian Centre of Excellence hosted by the Department of Geosciences at the University of Oslo.

The primary objective of CEED is developing an Earth model that explains how mantle processes drive plate tectonics and trigger massive volcanism and associated environmental and climate changes throughout Earth history.

Our goup brings together geoscientists with diverse research backgrounds and scientific expertise in plate tectonics, mantle dynamics, palegeographic reconstructions, paleomagnetism and planetary science. A prime vision is to develop an Earth model that links plate tectonics with mantle convection through time, and which includes elements such as deeply subducted slabs and plumes that rise from the deep mantle.

On our website, you will find out who we are, what we are currently working on, what we have published in recent years, and whom we collaborate with. And dont forget to check out our resource page which provides free, user-friendly software for paleogeographic reconstructions, accompanying data sets and useful links.
