The North Atlantic Oscillation and greenhouse-gas forcing
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-02-17)
The results of 12 coupled climate models participating in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP2) are compared together with observational data in order to investigate: 1) How the current generation of climate ...
Numerical solutions of two-phase flow with applications to CO2 sequestration and polymer flooding
(The University of Bergen, 2014-12-19)
This thesis addresses challenges related to mathematical and numerical modeling of flow in porous media. To address these challenges, two applications are considered: firstly, counter-current two-phase flow in a heterogeneous ...
Mechanisms affecting the transport of early stages of Norwegian Coastal Cod - a fjord study
(The University of Bergen, 2008-05-30)
The fjord system of Sørfolda and Nordfolda situated in northern Norway is used in a model study. Particularly to explore the mechanisms causing separation and mixing of eggs from Arcto-Norwegian Cod (ANC) and Norwegian Coastal ...
Analysis of IgM sub-variants related to ancestral tetraploidy in salmonid fish
(The University of Bergen, 2013-03-21)
Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and brown trout (Salmo trutta) possess two paralogous IgM heavy chain (μ) genes related to ancestral tetraploidy. Accordingly, IgM subpopulations of Atlantic salmon and brown trout can be ...
Experimental Characterization of High-Pressure Natural Gas Scrubbers
(The University of Bergen, 2006-10-20)
Scrubber design practice today is largely based on experimental data generated at ambient conditions with model fluid system such as air-water. Though good efficiency is often measured in the lab, real natural gas scrubbers ...
Some Regularity Results for Certain Weakly Quasiregular Mappings on the Heisenberg Group and Elliptic Equations
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-01)
The thesis is organized as follows. In chapter 1, we set up a higher integrability result for the horizontal part of certain weakly quasiregular maps on the Heisenberg group. Unlike the Euclidean case, the exponential of ...
Searching for the Higgs Boson in Pairs of Tau Leptons in Data from the ATLAS Experiment
(The University of Bergen, 2013-01-11)
One of the key questions in particle physics today, is the origin of the electroweak symmetry breaking. The answer to this question will most likely be solved with the data provided by the Large Hadron Collider which ...
Abstractions for Language-Independent Program Transformations

Cutoff latitude variation during solar proton events: Causes and consequences
(WileyAmerican Geophysical Union, 2015-01)
To accurately quantify the effect of solar proton events (SPEs) on the atmosphere requires a good estimate of the particle energy deposition in the middle atmosphere (60–100 km) and how the energy is distributed globally. ...
