Seminar (Career Workshop) - “Northern Lights” and the role of subsurface in Carbon Capture and Storage

Speaker: Dr. Renata Meneguolo - Equinor, Stavanger (Norway) | 4 Aprile 4,30 PM ! Aula Arduino


Capture and storage of carbon dioxide (CCS) is considered a crucial tool for the decarbonization of emissions from energy and hard-to-abate industries. Geoscience has a crucial role in the multidisciplinary assessment of the three building blocks of safe CO2 geological storage: containment, injectivity and capacity.

Seminar - Basement inversion of the European passive continental margin during Alpine collision: From nm-scale deformation processes to geodynamics

Speaker: Prof. Marco Herwegh, University of Bern, Institute of Geological Sciences (CH) - Tuesday, 28 March – 4:30 PM | Aula Arduino


This talk deals with the exhumation history of continental granitoid crust of the former European passive continental margin, by showing regional scale fault zone patterns, their link to microscale deformation processes and the mechanical implications based on rock deformation experiments.
