Conformance Control for Enhanced Oil Recovery in Fractured Reservoirs
(The University of Bergen, 2014-09-19)
Computer-aided proofs and algorithms in analysis
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-14)
The computational power has increased dramatically since the appearance of the first computers, making them a vital tool in the analysis of dynamical systems. We present further applications of those two basic ideas, ...
Chemical Properties of Alkenes and Alkynes from Carbon 1s Photoelectron Spectroscopy and Theory
(The University of Bergen, 2013-02-27)
The field of electron spectroscopy has evolved extensively the last couple of decades. On one hand, the technology at the synchrotron radiation facilities and of electron analyzers has improved, providing experimental ...
Sketch-based Storytelling for Cognitive Problem Solving: Externalization, Evaluation, and Communication in Geology
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-25)
PROBLEM solving is an important part of all engineering and scientific activities. It is present, for instance, when experts want to develop more fuel-efficient cars or when they are searching for oil and gas in the ...
Seasonal dynamics of the vertical migration behaviour of mesopelagic fish
(The University of Bergen, 2010-11-26)
This thesis focuses on the behavioural dynamics of mesopelagic fish in a fjordic environment. Acoustic data recorded with a stationary echosounder was used to primarily investigate the diel vertical migration behaviour ...
A fish introduction and its impact on the plankton community
(The University of Bergen, 2012-08-20)
This thesis is about how one species can invade an ecosystem and change the whole biological community within a few years. The question is whether such changes can be foreseen or are more or less unpredictable? Biological ...
Characteristics of Pyrosequencing Data – Analysis, Methods, and Tools
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-17)
The introduction of this thesis provides background knowledge on the 454 sequencing technology and a detailed review of the most relevant sequencing artifacts. Chapter 1 puts the 454 sequencing technology into a historical ...
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 ...
Carbon to nutrient ratios in marine systems: understanding natural variability Studies of seasonal, inter-annual and regional variability
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-29)
Ecological stoichiometry deals with the coupling of the carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) cycles at the base of the aquatic food webs. Variation in C:N:P stoichiometry is driven by a multitude of factors, and ...
Assessing and comparing climatic control on distribution and reproduction of alpine and lowland species in the subalpine habitat of western Norway.
(The University of Bergen, 2012-02-06)
Aims and background: Species range shift is among the most well-documented responses to climate change. As a result, a growing number of studies model species climatic niches to predict how species ranges may displace ...
