Modeling trapping mechanism of PCB on activated carbon
(The University of Bergen, 2009-11-20)
This thesis aims to investigate the trapping mechanism of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) on activated carbon. In the pursuit of this goal, molecular dynamics (MD) simulations were the method chosen. To be able to model a ...
Isolation, identification and properties of pyranoanthocyanins and anthocyanin forms
(The University of Bergen, 2007-06-22)
This dissertation focuses on isolation and structural elucidation of anthocyanins, and their chemical properties. The characterization of anthocyanins from castor (Ricinus communis), fourteen cultivars of European ...

The fate of the Atlantic Water in the North Icelandic Irminger Current
(The University of Bergen, 2012-01-19)
The fate of the Atlantic Water within the North Icelandic Irminger Current has long been questioned. The North Icelandic Irminger Current flows along the Icelandic shelf area to the west and north of Iceland, bringing warm ...
On weak solutions and a covergent numerical scheme for the compressible Navier-Strokes Equations
(SIAM Journal on Numerical Analysis, 2015-02-26)
In this paper, the three-dimensional compressible Navier-Stokes equations are considered on a periodic domain. We propose a semi-discrete numerical scheme and derive a priori bounds that ensures that the resulting system ...
A unified multilevel framework of upscaling and domain decomposition
(International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE), 2010)
We consider multiscale preconditioners for a class of mass-conservative domain-decomposition (MCDD) methods. For the application of reservoir simulation, we need to solve large linear systems, arising from finite-volume ...
Rekonstruksjon av skredaktiviteten rundt Langfjordvatnet på Arnøy, Nord-Troms. Ein studie basert på kvartærgeologisk kartlegging og analysar av innsjøkjernar
(The University of Bergen, 2012-07-16)
In this study from Lake Langfjordvatnet at Arnøy, northern Troms, a large rock slope failure has been mapped and dated. In addition the Holocene snow avalanche activity has been reconstructed based on layers of avalanche ...
Sketch-based Modelling and Conceptual Visualization of Geomorphological Processes for Interactive Scientific Communication
(The University of Bergen, 2014-09-19)
Throughout this dissertation, solutions for rapid digitalization of ideas will be defined. More precisely, the focus is on interactive scientific sketching and communication of geology, where the result is a digital ...
The circulation of the Norwegian Sea- An investigation from space and ocean
(The University of Bergen, 2014-01-10)
The Norwegian Sea circulation plays a key role in maintaining the mild climate of the northwestern Europe via the transport of warm Atlantic Water pole-ward. The first paper addresses the advective currents connecting the ...
Isocitrate dehydrogenase from extremophiles; Molecular adaptations to high temperatures
(The University of Bergen, 2006-11-30)
Life on earth has adapted to a wide variety of environmental conditions, many of which are extreme to us humans. Temperature is one of the most important factors limiting biological activity and survival, but so far, ...
