Determining individual variation in growth and its implication for life-history and population processes using the Empirical Bayes method
The differences in demographic and life-history processes between organisms living in the same population have important consequences for ecological and evolutionary dynamics. Modern statistical and computational methods ...
Numerical modelling of the sub-surface melting of marine-terminating glaciers in Arctic fjords
(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
Submarine melting of glaciers terminating in fjords is likely to be of high importance regarding the total ice loss from ice sheets and ice caps and the resulting addition of freshwater to the ocean. Submarine melting ...
Deep vision: An in-trawl stereo camera makes a step forward in monitoring the pelagic community
Ecosystem surveys are carried out annually in the Barents Sea by Russia and Norway to monitor the spatial distribution of ecosystem components and to study population dynamics. One component of the survey is mapping the ...
An Experimental Study of Pool Fires and Validation of Different CFD Fire Models
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-06)
Computer programs developed to predict a possible fire scenario is today an important tool when working with fire safety. In this context different Computational Fluid Dynamics models, so called CFD models, where the domain ...
Search for top squark pair production in final states with one isolated lepton, jets, and missing transverse momentum in √s = 8 TeV pp collisions with the ATLAS detector
The results of a search for top squark (stop) pair production in final states with one isolated lepton, jets, and missing transverse momentum are reported. The analysis is performed with proton-proton collision data at s√ ...
Catch-and-release of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua): post-release behaviour of acoustically pretagged fish in a natural marine environment
(NRC Research Press, 2014-10-07)
Studying the sublethal effects of catch-and-release (C&R) is challenging, as there are several potential sources of bias. For example, if behavioural alterations immediately after the release event are to be studied, ...
Solvolytic lignin degradation in an alcohol / formic acid medium - Analysis of the reaction system and products by means of kinetic modelling and chemometrics
(The University of Bergen, 2012-10-04)
Lignocellulosic biomass has been identified as an abundant renewable resource to produce sustainable alternatives for conventional fossil fuels for the transport sector as well as selected bio-materials and chemicals. ...
Robust Control Volume Methods for Reservoir Simulation on Challenging Grids

Modeling the relativistic runaway electron avalanche and the feedback mechanism with GEANT4
This paper presents the first study that uses the GEometry ANd Tracking 4 (GEANT4) toolkit to do quantitative comparisons with other modeling results related to the production of terrestrial gamma ray flashes and high-energy ...
A survey of dioxin-like contaminants in fish from recreational fishing.
The dioxin and dioxin-like compounds are regarded as one of the most toxic group of environmental contaminants. Food for the commercial market is regularly monitored for their dioxin levels and the concentration allowed ...
