of Geological Processes)
at the University of Oslo. I am the scientific coordinator of the Fluid
Earth Group at PGP, which involves activities on volcanic processes,
CO2 sequestration, and petroleum systems.
PGP was a
Center of Excellence aiming to bring geologists and physicists to work
together in order to get a better understanding of the geological
processes. Although the CoE status of PGP ended, PGP activities
continue in a group in-between the Departments of Physics and
