Podcast: UiB-studenter stiller klimaforskere spørsmål!

I samarbeid med det matematisk-naturvitenskapelige fakultet har UiB-studenter stilt klimaspørsmål til bergensforskere om matematikk, geovitenskap, energi, fysikk og havbruk. Resultatet er fem lunsjpodcaster hvor du får svar på klimaspørsmålene du lurte på, og kanskje noen du ikke visste du lurte på!

Hva har matematikk med klima å gjøre, og hva er klimarisiko? Forsker ved Bjerknessenteret og NORCE Marie Pontoppidan blir spurt ut av matematikkstudent Johanne Holmøy. Les mer og hør på podcast her.

Congrats, dr Kristian Jensen

Kristian Jensen successfully defended his thesis Wednesday 15 th December on: “Seismic modelling and deconvolution of prestack depth migrated images through ray-based Point-Spread Functions“.

We congratulate the freshly minted doctor! 🙂

The opponents were Professor Hervé Chauris, MINES Paris Tech, France, and Assosiate Professor Alison Malcolm, Memorial University of Newfoundland, Canada, The Internal member of the committee was  Professor Stéphane Rondenay, GEO and the disputation was led by Professor Harald Walderhaug.

Seismologen vant MN Pepperkakehus Konkurransen

Vi gratulerer geofysikk-studentgruppen Seismologen! Alle studentgrupper ved Matnat-fakultetet kunne delta i en konkurranse om å bygge det beste ‘pepperkakehuset’ (tema: miljø og klima). Seismologen vant denne konkurransen og bildene viser deres bidrag. Seismologens pepperkakehus, samt de øvrige bidragene, kan sees i 1. etasje i Realfagbygget.

Seismologen won the Pepperkake-House Competition

Congratulations to the geophysics student group Seismologen! All student groups of the Matnat faculty could participate in a competition to build the best ‘pepperkake-house’ (the theme was: environment and climate). Seismologen won this competition. The pictures show their contribution. Seismologen’s pepperkake-house, as well as the other contributions, can be seen in the first floor of Realfagbygget.
