There is a strong and rapidly increasing need for accurate monitoring and forecasting of the Earth. Earthquakes, landslides, avalanches, water resources mapping, hydrocarbon production and the underground storage of gas (especially CO2) are obvious examples, but there are many more emerging needs that are only now becoming clear as the global ecosystem enters a period of dramatic change. 

Our vision is to create the world-leading research and innovation Centre for Geophysical Forecasting (CGF) and sustainable resource exploitation.  Norway is already at the forefront of global exploration geophysics. We intend to leverage that expertise to catalyse a new wave of geophysical capabilities, applying disruptive new technologies to novel enterprises that will be game changers in the transition from hydrocarbon geophysics to the new blue economy, in addition to important terrestrial geohazard risk monitoring and early warning applications, founded on sustainable geophysical applications.
