Stefan Bünz, work package leader at CAGE, has been promoted to professor at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. 

Text: Maja Sojtaric

Stefan Bünz has more than ten years of broad research experience in marine geology and geophysics, particularly related to gas hydrate, shallow gas, geo hazards, continental slope stability, high-latitude sedimentary processes, petroleum systems, CO2-storage, seafloor ecosystems, tectonic and non-tectonic faulting, and the development of sedimentary basins. A great part of his research is aimed to better understand gas hydrate systems, their distribution and their origin.

At CAGE professor Bünz leads the group attempting to better understand the sub seabed reservoirs of gas hydrates in the Arctic. The work package is developing new high-resolution geophysical technology within acquisition, processing and interpretation to directly detect and image marine methane hydrate reservoirs in the Arctic.

Stefan Bünz holds a PhD degree in marine geology and geophysics from UiT The Arctic University of Norway. He has been an associate professor at the Department of Geology at UiT since 2007. UiT The Arctic University of Norway is the host institution for CAGE.
