Efficient global minimization methods for variational problems in imaging and vision
(The University of Bergen, 2011-08-19)
Energy minimization has become one of the most important paradigms for formulating image processing and computer vision problems in a mathematical language. Energy minimization models have been developed in both the ...
L0/L1 trigger generation by the ALICE PHOS detector
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-14)
Quark-Gluon Plasma (QGP) is a phase that exists above a critical temperature and corresponding energy density according to the theory of Quantum Chromo-Dynamics (QCD). The studies of the QGP help us to understand the ...
Decontamination of persistent organic pollutants in fishmeal and fish oil. Process optimization and modeling
(The University of Bergen, 2011-10-07)
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are fat soluble chemical substances that persist in the environment and bioaccumulate in the food chain. Through long-range environmental transportation by air, water and migratory ...
Correlations between the effective permeability and seismic anisotropy of fractured reservoirs
(The University of Bergen, 2011-08-23)
The successful exploitation of many hydrocarbon reservoirs may depend on proper characterization of fractured or composite porous media. However, due to anisotropy and heterogeneity, the characterization of such kind of ...
North Atlantic multidecadal variability in coupled climate models - Mechanisms and responses
(The University of Bergen, 2011-05-06)
Global atmosphere-ocean general circulation models have been used to investigate mechanisms controlling the North Atlantic low-frequency variability, with the focus on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, the ...
The influence of input uncertainties on remotely sensed estimates of ocean primary productivity
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-10)
Temporally and spatially dense estimates of oceanic phytoplankton net primary productivity (NPP), which are commonly derived by mathematical models from satellite observations of ocean colour, are a cornerstone of current ...
Sequential Data Assimilation in High Dimensional Nonlinear Systems
(The University of Bergen, 2011-10-21)
Since its introduction in 1994, the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) has gained a lot of attention as a tool for sequential data assimilation in many scientific areas. Due to its computationally fast and easy to implement ...
3D seismic stratigraphy and reservoir characterization of the Chalk Group in the Norwegian Central Graben, North Sea
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-08)
Oribatid mites in a changing world
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-09)
The main scope of this thesis is to illustrate the validity of oribatid mites as tools for palaeoecological reconstructions. Palaeoecology studies the responses of past organisms to past environmental changes. This ...
