About PGP

Physics of Geological Processes (PGP) is a Norwegian ’Center of Excellence’ hosted at the University of Oslo. It is a cross disciplinary geology-physics center which aims at obtaining a quantitative understanding of important geological processes. PGP is particularly interested in natural pattern-forming processes. To communicate our enthusiasm and understanding of geological patterns, PGP is collaborating with Norwegian artists. Our first science-art product is an exhibition in Gallery Sverdrup at the University Library in Oslo. This exhibit opens on March 1st and is the result of three artists participation in the internation AMASE (Arctic Mars Analog Svalbard Expedition) expeditions to Svalbard in the periode 2003-2005. .
