Joint-patterns, mechanical properties and weathering characteristics of selected, arid, continental deposits of the Colorado Plateau
(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
The Colorado Plateau contains a stratigraphic sequence spanning from Precambrian to Tertiary in age, including a thick succession of Permian and Mesozoic strata that are well displayed in outcrops throughout southeastern ...
Trends in extreme precipitation and the influence by meteorological parameters following the RCP8.5 scenario over 2 catchments in India
(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-02)
The Historical1 simulation (1960-2000) and the RCP8.5 scenario (2060-2100) from the NorESM are used to investigate trends in extreme precipitation, as well as the impact from vertical velocity, specific humidity, divergence ...
A Comparison of LiDAR and Radiosonde Wind Measurements
Doppler LiDAR measurements are already well established in the wind energy research and their accuracy has been tested against met mast data up to 100 m above ground. However, the new generation of scanning LiDAR have a ...
Assessment of the biodegradability of xanthan in offshore injection water
(The University of Bergen, 2015-04-29)
The application of biopolymers in EOR operations is considered environmental friendly compared to synthetic polymers. However, microbial degradation of the biopolymers may lead to a deterioration of effect in ...
Spatial Scales of Bacterial Diversity in Cold-Water Coral Reef Ecosystems
(Public Library of Science, 2012-03-05)
Background: Cold-water coral reef ecosystems are recognized as biodiversity hotspots in the deep sea, but insights into their associated bacterial communities are still limited. Deciphering principle patterns of bacterial ...
Longitudinal magnetic resonance imaging-based assessment of vascular changes and radiation response in androgen-sensitive prostate carcinoma xenografts under androgen-exposed and androgen-deprived conditions
Prostate cancer (PCa) patients receive androgen-deprivation therapy (ADT) to reduce tumor burden. However, complete eradication of PCa is unusual, and recurrent disease is evident within approximately 2 years in high-risk ...
Towards more efficient longline fisheries: fish feeding behaviour, bait characteristics and development of alternative baits
Better knowledge of food search behavior in fish is essential for studies that aim to improve longline fishing, particularly through bait development. This review provides an overview of our understanding of how fish detect ...
Global Minimization for Continuous Multiphase Partitioning Problems Using a Dual Approach
(Springer Verlag, 2010)
This paper is devoted to the optimization problem of continuous multi-partitioning, or multi-labeling, which is based on a convex relaxation of the continuous Potts model. In contrast to previous efforts, which are ...
Calibration, validation and application of the foraminiferal Mg/Ca. Reconstructing the intermediate water masses structure and origin in the Western Tropical Atlantic
(The University of Bergen, 2015-05-22)
The Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) plays a central role in the northward distribution of heat. It is a key mechanism in the climatic system that needs to be further understood. Most studies focused on ...
Pseudo H-type algebras and sub-Riemannian cut locus
