The research in geology at UiT focuses mainly in fieldwork in Northern Norway, in climate and marine geology with research cruises in the polar areas. We have unique geology right outside our doorstep, which give us a special understanding of the processes that shapes the earth. Close cooperation with the oil industry ensures relevant master projects for the market.
There are three lines of study: structural geology, arctic marine geology & geophysics and sedimentology & quarternary geology.
