Integration of ground-based hyperspectral and lidar scanning in virtual outcrop geology
(The University of Bergen, 2011-01-28)
The potential to visualize and analyse geological outcrops in a 3D environment has made terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) a standard method in geological field studies. Lidar models can be integrated with high resolution ...
Identifying flood deposits in lake sediments: Changing frequencies and potential links to long-term climate change
(The University of Bergen, 2011-05-26)
This thesis consists of an introduction and three individual papers that investigate the possibility for identifying the sedimentary imprint of catchment processes in lake sediments, emphasising on extreme events and in ...
Biological criteria for submergence of physostome (Atlantic salmon) and physoclist (Atlantic cod) fish in sea-cages
(The University of Bergen, 2011-03-11)
This thesis aims to describe behavioural responses and welfare parameters for the physostome Atlantic salmon and physoclist Atlantic cod when out of neutral buoyancy at different degrees and periods of time. The background ...
Water mass exchange in the sea west of Svalbard. A process study of flow instability and vortex generated heat fluxes in the West Spitsbergen Current
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-16)
Water mass transformations and air-sea exchange in the Barents Sea
(The University of Bergen, 2011-09-22)
Water mass transformation processes in the Barents Sea and their interannual to decadal variability are studied using a regional coupled ice-ocean model and observational data. Long-term data allows for assessment of ...
Circulation and transformation of Atlantic and Arctic water masses in climate models
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-09)
Ocean heat transport and associated heat loss to the atmosphere contributes significantly to the anomalously mild climate of northwestern Europe and its variability. In this thesis, the circulation and transformation of ...
The value of size. Bioeconomic consequences of size-dependent pricing and fishing-induced evolution
(The University of Bergen, 2011-09-02)
The influence of fishing on the dynamics of fish stocks is a core element in fisheries management. One of the most notable characteristics in this context is the sizestructure of a fish stock, composed by the individual ...
Environmental impact on host-parasite interactions. A study on the adaptive value of host castration and gigantism when hosts can regain reproduction
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-20)
The aim of this thesis was to investigate how altering the external environment affects life history strategies of hosts and their parasites, and to gain a better understanding of evolutionary theories on castration and ...
Supersymmetry with Trilinear R-Parity Violation – Implications for Cosmology and the LHC
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-16)
The current Standard Model of particle physics is sometimes referred to as one of the most successful theories ever constructed. When looking at the precision with which its predictions are being confirmed, it is easy ...
