  • Aragonite saturation states and pH in western Norwegian fjords: Seasonal cycles and controlling factors, 2005-2009 

    Omar, Abdirahman; Skjelvan, Ingunn; Erga, Svein Rune; Olsen, Are (Copernicus Publications, 2016-07-26)
    The uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) by the ocean leads to a process known as ocean acidification (OA), which lowers the aragonite saturation state (ΩAr) and pH, and this is poorly documented in coastal ...

  • Alternative gauge for the description of the light-matter interaction in a relativistic framework 

    Selstø, Sølve; Kjellsson, Tor; Lindroth, Eva; Simonsen, Aleksander; Førre, Morten (American Physical Society, 2017-08)
    We present a generalized velocity gauge form of the relativistic laser-matter interaction. In comparison with the (equivalent) regular minimal coupling description, this form of light-matter interaction results in superior ...
