📣 PhD DISPUTATION: Thomas Birchall
Our PhD candidate Thomas Birchall has studied the pore pressure of the subsoil in the northern parts of the Norwegian Barents Shelf, including the Svalbard archipelago. His PhD research shows that all cases of abnormally low pressure have undergone geologically recent uplift and typically occur at relatively shallow depths. Thomas will defend his PhD thesis on Tuesday 2 March!
