Invariant Mass Distributions of SUSY Cascade Decays
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-01)
If supersymmetry (SUSY) is realised at experimental energies and R-parity is conserved, sparticles might be produced and decay in cascades at the LHC. A neutral LSP will escape detection, complicating the reconstruction ...
Using VSP to improve interpretation of ocean bottom seismic
(The University of Bergen, 2011-02-21)
Operating companies work continuously on increasing their knowledge about the reservoir. In mature areas of the North Sea many wells have been drilled, which can be used to obtain improved images of the subsurface in the ...
A view on possible regime shifts in the North Atlantic subpolar gyre in the mid 1920s and 1990s
(The University of Bergen, 2014-10-22)
There is strong observational support for two significant warming episodes of the North Atlantic Subpolar Gyre (SPG), one starting in the mid 1920s the other in the mid 1990s. Possible mechanisms responsible for the two ...
Ecosystem Resilience and Threshold Response in the Gala´pagos Coastal Zone
(Public Library of Science, 2011-07-21)
Background: The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provides a conservative estimate on rates of sea-level rise of 3.8 mm yr21 at the end of the 21st century, which may have a detrimental effect on ecologically ...
Genotyping errors in a calibrated DNA register: implications for identification of individuals
(BioMed Central, 2011-04-20)
Background: The use of DNA methods for the identification and management of natural resources is gaining importance. In the future, it is likely that DNA registers will play an increasing role in this development. Microsatellite ...
Stochastic dynamics of interacting haematopoietic stem cell niche lineages
Since we still know very little about stem cells in their natural environment, it is useful to explore their dynamics through modelling and simulation, as well as experimentally. Most models of stem cell systems are based ...
Calibration of the ALICE Photon Spectromter (PHOS) using the neutral pion to gamma gamma decay
(The University of Bergen, 2009-09-01)
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is under construction beneath the border between Switzerland and France. If it is successful, it will accelerate and collide protons at 7 T eV per proton in center of mass. Furthermore, it ...
An Experimental Investigation on the Effect of Nitrogen Enriched Air and Heat Transfer on the Maximum Experimental Safe Gap for Propane Gas Explosions
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-15)
Electrical apparatuses for use in potentially explosive gas atmospheres are required to be enclosed. There are two main requirements in the design of such enclosures. Firstly, they are required to withstand the pressure ...
The near-collapse of the Faroe Plateau cod (Gadus morhua L.) stock in the 1990s: The effect of food availability on spatial distribution, recruitment, natural production and fishery
(The University of Bergen, 2009-10-02)
1. This thesis aims to explain why there was a near-collapse of the Faroe Plateau cod stock in the 1990s and why it recovered so quickly. Contrary to what local people on the Faroes believe, these fluctuations were not ...
Monte Carlo simulations of radiative transport in the atmosphere and ocean
(The University of Bergen, 2001)
