KUNNGJØRING MASTERPRESENTASJONER i juni ved Institutt for geovitenskap

Under følger foreløpig oversikt over masterpresentasjoner i juni. Det er vedtatt på UiB at alle masterpresentasjoner våren 2020 vil foregå digitalt. Vil gjøre oppmerksom på at det er en mulighet for at det blir flere masterpresentasjoner i juni enn det som er oppgitt i denne listen.  Det vil bli sendt ut påminnelse om masterpresentasjonene de aktuelle ukene, i tillegg til samme dag som masterpresentasjonen.  Zoom-lenken til masterpresentasjonene, vil bli sendt ut på e-post samme dag som presentasjonen.

Historie – De ukjente politiagentene

De færreste kjenner til Ellen Irgens som tidligere jobbet ved tegnekontoret til GEO. Politimenn i Bergen organiserte under krigen en hemmelig gruppe med et strengt taushetsløfte om at deres virksomhet aldri skulle bli kjent. XU var den største etterretningsorganisasjon  i Norge under krigen. Lokale politimenn i Bergen organiserte XU gruppen EB (etterretning Bergen) som ble sentral for militær etterretning og sikkerheten i motstandsbevegelsen i Bergensdistriktet. BT har skrevet litt om de ukjente politiagentene i en artikkel fra tirsdag 26. mai. Ellen Irgens, under dekknavnet “Olemann”, var en av de som under krigen jobbet i motstandsbevegelsen med å blant annet lage falske papirer til motstandsfolk, grenseboer bevis, reisebevis og rasjoneringskort.

Elba geological field mapping course (Geov 252)

This years group picture of the Elba geological field mapping course (Geov 252) comes from 17 home offices, as the field mapping part had to be cancelled and instead was conducted digitally this year. The course has 6 seminars that prepare the field course, which were still mostly run at the department before the C19 shut-down. We then had to decide to either postpone the field part, to cancel the field part or to run it digitally. We decided for the latter and adhoc developed a digital field course based on 13 years of previous field mapping course experience on Elba Island, but now combining satellite imagery, Google Earth Streetview, field imagery and QGIS. Johannes Wiest and Hallgeir Sirevaag helped tremendously putting the technicalities into place. The group picture was compiled by Johannes Wiest from 17 Teams home office screenshots, provided by students and supervisors. Joachim Jacobs, 19.05.2020

Hakan Heggernes

Hi everyone! My name is Hakan and I started my PhD in structural geology in the middle of April, just after Easter. Professor Atle Rotevatn is my supervisor. I am from Bergen and I have pretty much done my entire education at UiB, with the exception of an exchange semester at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. I finished my bachelor’s degree in 2017, and I finished my master’s degrees in sedimentology and structural geology in June 2019.

At UiB I will be part of the Basin and Reservoir Studies group. During my PhD project I will investigate structural and stratigraphic controls on fluid flow in a range of sandstones. The main focus will be on poroperm properties, network properties and the distribution of sub-seismic structures like deformation bands and faults. The work will include core analysis from the Ivar Aasen field in the North Sea, and outcrop analysis from fieldwork, which will work as analogues to subsurface reservoirs.

When we get back to UiB, which hopefully is soon, you can find me in office 2152A. Velkommen til GEO 🙂
