Anaesthesia of farmed fish with special empasis on atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) and atlantic habibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus)
(The University of Bergen, 2011-03-23)
During the life cycle as farmed animals there are numerous situations where fish are subjected to handling and confinement. Netting, weighing, sorting, vaccination, transport and, at the end, slaughter are common events ...
Interactions between marine n-3 fatty acids and methylmercury in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-19)
Methylmercury (MeHg) is an environmental contaminant widely distributed in the aquatic environment. MeHg toxicity is characterized by a broad range of molecular cellular effects, often, if not always, induced through the ...
Behavioural effects of naval sonars on fish and cetaceans
(The University of Bergen, 2011-04-01)
Anthropogenic noise in the sea has increased during the past decades as a consequence of increased shipping traffic, oil and gas exploitation, and underwater construction work (Southall et al., 2007; Slabbekoorn et al., ...
Sub-semi-Riemannian geometry on Heisenberg-type groups
(The University of Bergen, 2011-02-04)
Convective mixing in geological carbon storage
(The University of Bergen, 2011-11-25)
The industrial era has seen an exponential growth in the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2), resulting mainly from the burning of fossil fuels. This can cause changes in the climate that have severe impacts ...
High Arctic Invertebrate Biogeography. Patterns and Colonization Processes since the Last Glacial Maximum
(The University of Bergen, 2011-09-22)
The biogeography of Arctic terrestrial invertebrate species, and particularly processes creating and determining patterns of species distribution, have rarely been considered as a whole, but rather on a regional basis, ...
Diagram Predicate Framework meets Model Versioning and Deep Metamodelling
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-07)
Model-driven engineering (MDE) is a branch of software engineering which aims at improving the productivity, quality and cost-effectiveness of software by shifting the paradigm from code-centric to model-centric. MDE ...
Enzymes for Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR)
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-30)
Primary oil recovery by reservoir pressure depletion and secondary oil recovery by waterflooding usually result in poor displacement efficiency. As a consequence there is always some trapped oil remaining in oil reservoirs. ...
Cryptanalysis of Cryptographic Primitives and Related Topics
(The University of Bergen, 2011-09-09)
This thesis has focused on the cryptanalysis of cryptographic primitives especially stream ciphers which is an important topic in cryptography. Additionally, the security of network coding is discussed and improved with ...
Transport of inorganic carbon through, within, and below the ocean surface
(The University of Bergen, 2011-03-11)
Human emissions of CO2 through the burning of fossil fuel, cement production, and land use change have increased the atmospheric CO2 concentration by 39 % since 1750. Without the large uptake of anthropogenic CO2 by the ...
