Inga Berre to chair EERA-JPGE

In the 2017 steering committee meeting for the European Energy Research Alliance, Joint Programme Geothermal Energy (EERA-JPGE), Inga Berre from the Porous Media Group was elected as the new chair for 2018-2019, replacing Ernst Huenges (GFZ). David Bruhn (GFZ) will be the 2018-2019 scientific secretary.

Visits in November

As becomes a research group in an international field, the PMG sets store by scientific visits both to and from Bergen. This month, we warmly appreciate being able to host the following eminent researchers:

Sorin Pop, Hasselt University in Belgium, from Tuesday 7 Nov to Friday 10 Nov.

Nicolae Suciu, University of Erlangen in Germany, […]

Enumath, part II

The Enumath conference is now finished, and we take the liberty of declaring it a great success! An abundance of excellent contributions was offered, hours and hours of stimulating discussions took place and, perhaps most remarkably for western Norway in September, the sun did what it could to make the week as pleasant as possible.

Enumath

This week, the group hosts the 2017 Enumath conference at Voss. The conference lasts the entire week and is attended by some 350 mathematicians. We have enjoyed an abundance of interesting talks so far and look forward to further exciting contributions in the days to come!

Seminar 15 June

This week’s seminar will be held by Mats Brun at 1pm.

Title: Upscaling and discretization of coupled geomechanics, flow and heat in a poro-elastic medium in the quasi-static situation

Abstract: Motivated by geothermal energy storage in the subsurface, we undertake the formal derivation of Biot’s law for a poro-elastic […]

Seminar 20 April

This week’s seminar will be given by Ingeborg Gåseby Gjerde.

Title: Mixed methods for the Poisson equation with a Dirac right-hand side Abstract: In this talk, we will investigate the use of mixed methods for the Poisson equation with a Dirac right-hand side. The solution to this problem does not lie in H1, […]

Researcher position

There is a new position in the PMG related to the TheMSES project. The researcher project concerns the understanding of how fractures can be created and opened as a consequence of change in flow and temperature in the subsurface when hot fluids are pumped down at elevated pressures and later produced. We warmly […]

Seminar 23 Mars

This week’s seminar will be given by Florian List and will take place at 1pm on Thursday, as usual.

Title: Iterative methods for solving Richards’ equation Abstract: This presentation concerns linearization methods for efficiently solving the Richards’ equation, a degenerate elliptic-parabolic equation which models flow in saturated/unsaturated porous media. The discretization of Richards’ equation is […]

The Porous Media Group starts blogging!

We, the members of the porous media group at the University of Bergen, have decided to start a blog. The intention is to present the ongoing work and activities of the group in an accessible form. So, in the future you may expect to find updates on matters of the following nature:

Short presentations of […]
