  • Physical Geography
  • Petroleum Geology and Geophysics
  • Tectonics, Petrology and Geochemistry

Some keywords for the research and teaching at the Department:
Field work, experimental work, mathematical modelling, GIS.

The Department participates in two Centres of Excellence appointed by The Research Council of Norway:
PGP - Physics of Geological Processes and
ICG - International Centre for Geohazards.

Furthermore, the Department represents the University of Oslo in the strategic research collaboration CIENS - Oslo Centre for Interdisciplinary Environmental and Social Research.

The Department has a close collaboration with UNIS - the University Studies at Svalbard, and it is easy to incorporatet a term or two at Svalbard in the studies at the department. A once in a lifetime experience!
