• #### Analysis of non-linear shallow water equations discretized on Arakawa C-grids ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2016-06-01)
To model the behaviour of flow and waves in three dimensions, one may use the Navier-Stokes equations. These equations leads to the shallow water equations, when the depth is much smaller than the wavelength. The shallow ...

• #### Fisheries-induced evolution in morphology: a selection experiment on the Trinidadian guppy (Poecilia reticulata) ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2016-06-01)
For the past century, the human population has been growing, and the human technology has been advancing, both at historically-unprecedented rates. As a result, the overall impact of human activities on the lives and deaths ...

• #### Summer rains in northeast Bangladesh: Onset and triggering mechanisms ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2016-06-01)
The aim of this study is to shed light on convective triggering mechanisms around the onset of the summer rains in Northeast Bangladesh. We want to understand this rainfall since it has a large impact on the local climate, ...
Master thesis
• #### Polar Components in Crude Oils and Their Correlation to Physiochemical Properties. ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2016-06-01)
The composition and properties of crude oils have been subjected to much scrutinization over the past decades due to the decreasing oil quality and thus increasingly difficult oil recovery. The physical properties of crude ...
Master thesis
• #### Climatology of polar lows impacting Norway ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2016-06-01)
Polar lows (PLs), mesoscale cyclones in high latitudes, impacting Norway are studied in this thesis. A climatology of PLs in the Nordic seas for the period 1979-2015 is made, by applying a cyclone detection and tracking ...
Master thesis
• #### On the Influence of Latent and Sensible Heating for Maintaining Baroclinicity in the Gulf Stream Region ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2016-06-01)
For the North Atlantic storm track to collocate with the ocean front, there has to be efficient restoring mechanisms for baroclinicity. The total diabatic heating is agreed to play the most dominant role, but whether ...
