Within the framework of the EPOS-Norway project, NORCE Research and the University of Bergen are developing software to visualise, sort and analyse together different types of geophysical and geological data.

This April, the EPOS-Norway Solid Earth Science Forum (SESF) arranged a two-day workshop to test the latest version of the EPOS-Norway Portal. This was the second workshop dedicated to testing the multidisciplinary facilities of the EPOS-N Portal. The workshop took place in Bergen, Norway, with over 30 participants - students, young researchers, EPOS-N staff and developers - from Norway, Denmark and Finland.

The workshop started with a general introduction to the EPOS project and to EPOS-Norway, as well as a short demonstration of the different functionalities of the latest version of the portal. The participants then tested the portal by working through a set of four pre-defined exercises. Participants were also asked to consecutively give feedback to each task, thereby providing valuable information to the developers for their future work.

The EPOS-Norway team also organised a shorter EPOS-N Portal demonstration at the University of Bergen, for the staff at the Department of Earth science. Several other follow-up workshops are planned: one in Sweden (October 2019) during the Nordic Seismology Seminar, and another in Norway (January 2020) during the Nordic Geological Winter Meeting.
