Listening to the Earth
NORSAR is an internationally recognized independent research foundation. We specialize in seismology and seismic monitoring.
In this year's snapshot, we highlight our important work within the the test ban treaty, fiber technology, safe and transparent storage of CO2 and our work on a safer society against natural hazards. NORSAR's vision is to create a safer world through outstanding research on the earth's vibrations. Our important societal mission is a major driver for creating good results.
NORSAR will lead a newly funded research project on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). Together with partners, the project has been allocated funds from the Norwegian Research Council and will take us one step closer to safe storage of CO2.
NORSAR is leading a EU research and innovation project that is working towards more earthquake resilient societies.
NORSAR recently published a new and digital earthquake zoning map for Norway. This means that developers and society at large can save billions of NOK on large development projects in the years to come.
