  • Recurrent cannabis use among Norwegian students: Prevalence, characteristics, and polysubstance use 

    Erevik, Eilin K.; Torsheim, Torbjørn; Andreassen, Cecilie Schou; Vedaa, Øystein; Pallesen, Ståle (Sage, 2017)
    Background: Research on cannabis has focused on lifetime use or regular/heavy use (i.e., daily or almost daily). Regular, albeit not necessarily daily, cannabis use has received less scientific attention. Objectives: This ...

  • Why several truths can be true 

    Meland, Eivind; Brodersen, John (Taylor & Francis, 2016)
    In this paper, we offer a perspective on complementarity, acknowledging that it is not possible for human perception and cognition to grasp reality with unambiguous concepts or theories. Therefore, multiple concepts and ...

  • Utilizing Solar Vapour Energy by Use of Nanofluids in a Direct Absorption Solar Collector 

    Ulset, Edda Torsdottir (The University of Bergen, 2018-01)
    Traditional solar thermal collectors and photovoltaic (PV) systems suffer from low energy conversion efficiencies. This is mainly due to high thermal losses from overheated absorber plates or solar cells. For steam ...

  • Cryostratigraphy and sedimentology of high-Arctic fjord-valleys 

    Gilbert, Graham Lewis (The University of Bergen, 2018-01-17)
    Fjord-valleys, as sediment-filled palaeofjords, are characteristic of formerly glaciated mountainous coastal areas. High-Arctic fjord-valleys commonly host permafrost, but are poorly accessible and hence have drawn relatively ...

  • Coring of unconsolidated permafrost deposits: methodological successes and challenges 

    Gilbert, Graham Lewis; Christiansen, Hanne H; Neumann, Ulrich (GEOQuébec2015, 2015)
    This technical note presents three scales of drilling infrastructure for comparison. These three methods include: (1) a small hand-drill designed for retrieving cores down to ca. 5 m depth, (2) the medium-scale UNIS ...

  • Cryostratigraphy, sedimentology, and the late Quaternary evolution of the Zackenberg River delta, northeast Greenland 

    Gilbert, Graham Lewis; Cable, Stefanie; Thiel, Christine; Christiansen, Hanne H; Elberling, Bo (Copernicus Publications, 2017-05-30)
    The Zackenberg River delta is located in northeast Greenland (74°30′ N, 20°30′ E) at the outlet of the Zackenberg fjord valley. The fjord-valley fill consists of a series of terraced deltaic deposits (ca. 2 km2) formed ...

  • Diabetic foot ulcers - predictors of healing time and aspects of telemedicine 

    Smith-Strøm, Hilde (The University of Bergen, 2018-02-16)
    Background: A diabetic foot ulcer (DFU) is a feared complication of diabetes. Both duration and severity of ulcer before start of treatment in specialist health care are factors that can effect healing time for patient ...
