Kyrre Heldal Kartveit

Hello colleagues! My name is Kyrre, and I am a guest PhD-candidate from Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). After nine years in exile in Trondheim I have returned to my native city in order to approach my field of interest from a somewhat different angle. For the past few years I have worked with seismic interpretation, structural geology and sedimentology although, theoretically, my background is in rock physics. I prefer the former. At GEO I will be focusing on seismic modelling based on outcrops and well data, which to me is fairly unknown territory. My field of research has been swirling around the Messinian Salinity Crisis in the Mediterranean Sea, but I also have great affection and fascination of Svalbard geology – hopefully I will be able to tie my research to both of these themes. I am very exited to be back in Bergen and look forward to getting to know you all, and to re-explore the loveliest city in Norway. Please drop by 2101 for a chat and/or coffee. Velkommen til GEO Kyrre 🙂
