About the Event
We welcome our members to join our first (this time, in person) field trip!
The event will be led by Associate Professor Christian Haug Eide a Sedimentologist from the University of Bergen.
The trip will focus on the geological aspects of rockfall hazards and will take place in the Voss area and give the participants a simple introduction on how to think about rockfall hazard, how to estimate return period of rockfall events, and to show what slopes prone to rockfall look like.
The course takes one day, and takes the participants to two scenic and fantastic places where rockfall deposits can be studied in detail. In addition, there will be one stop where the participants can calibrate their expectations for how rocks will look like after being exposed to the elements for a certain amount of time.
The trip will depart and return to Realfagbygget at the University of Bergen on Friday 7th October. Meet up will be 07:45 ready for the bus and will return to Bergen at approximately 17:00. Following the trip there will be a social gathering and opportunity to network with fellow NSRG members, where there will be pizza and the opportunity to purchase drinks.

Christian Haug Eide is an associate professor in sedimentology at the University of Bergen. He has a
broad view of sedimentology and likes to work on interesting problems with good data, and believes
that problem-based field-teaching is a key part of geoscience education. His research is broad and
integrated and includes source-to-sink, geohazards, basin evolution, subsurface reservoirs and
ground conditions for marine infrastructure.
