(The University of Bergen, 2013-03-04)
Analysis of sequencing data in environmental genomics. Exploring the diversity of the microbial biosphere
(The University of Bergen, 2013-04-12)
Most life on this planet is microbial and for the last two decades, environmental genomics has contributed to reveal an impressive biodiversity of this microbial life. This approach applies DNA sequencing to environmental ...
Correlated ionization processes in atoms and molecules
(The University of Bergen, 2013-09-27)
This thesis is composed of five scientific papers written between 2009 and 2013. The focus of this work is on various photo-ionization processes in small atoms and molecules. The strong field phenomenon called “atomic ...
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 ...
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 ...
Nonholonomic geometry on finite and infinite dimensional Lie groups and rolling manifolds
(The University of Bergen, 2012-03-30)
Part I: We start by giving some background on the topics discussed in this thesis. The main topic of the thesis is nonholonomic geometry. In Chapter 1 we give an introduction of nonholonomic geometry in the context of ...
Decontamination of persistent organic pollutants in fishmeal and fish oil. Process optimization and modeling
(The University of Bergen, 2011-10-07)
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are fat soluble chemical substances that persist in the environment and bioaccumulate in the food chain. Through long-range environmental transportation by air, water and migratory ...
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 ...
Contemporary evolution caused by fisheries: Contributions from experimental studies
(The University of Bergen, 2012-11-06)
Evolutionary change is occurring within tens of generations or fewer in nature. This contemporary evolution is commonly caused by human activities, as they alter the selective pressures that the populations experience. ...
