Correlations between the effective permeability and seismic anisotropy of fractured reservoirs
(The University of Bergen, 2011-08-23)
The successful exploitation of many hydrocarbon reservoirs may depend on proper characterization of fractured or composite porous media. However, due to anisotropy and heterogeneity, the characterization of such kind of ...
Water mass transformations in the Barents Sea and linkages to the Polar Front
(The University of Bergen, 2010-10-29)
Environmental Remediation: Removal of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons Dissertation
(The University of Bergen, 2012-08-17)
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous persistent semi-volatile organic compounds. They are contaminants that are resistant to degradation and can remain in the environment for long periods due to their ...
Properties of Terrestrial Gamma ray Flashes. Modelling and Analysis of BATSE and RHESSI data
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-15)
This thesis objective is to study Terrestrial Gamma ray Flashes (TGFs), which are short burst (∼ 1 ms) of gamma-radiation from thunderstorms first discovered by Fishman et al. . The measured photons energies in ...
Linking Northern High-Latitude Cryospheric Changes to Large-Scale Atmospheric Circulation
(The University of Bergen, 2015-03-20)
Warming twice as fast as the rest of the globe, the northern high-latitudes arguably show the clearest evidences of observed and projected climate changes. Two of these are the rapid loss of Arctic sea ice and the shrinking ...
Robust Multiscale Control-volume Methods for Reservoir Simulation
(The University of Bergen, 2012-04-30)
The impact of lysine and arginine ratios in plant-based protein diets on appetite, growth performance and gene expression of brain neuropeptide Y (NPY) and cholecystokinin (CCK) in juvenile cobia (Rachycentron canadum)
(The University of Bergen, 2013-01-31)
Aquaculture of cobia, Rachycentron canadum is hampered by lack of good feeding protocols and nutritionally optimized diets. Studies on the role of appetite and feeding behavior regulating neuropeptides in cobia have not ...
Dynamics of spawning migrations in Northeast Arctic cod
(The University of Bergen, 2010-12-10)
The Northeast Arctic (NA) cod is known to undertake long southbound spawning migrations from their feeding grounds in the Barents Sea, to various spawning grounds along the Norwegian coast. Hence it’s native Norwegian ...
North Atlantic multidecadal variability in coupled climate models - Mechanisms and responses
(The University of Bergen, 2011-05-06)
Global atmosphere-ocean general circulation models have been used to investigate mechanisms controlling the North Atlantic low-frequency variability, with the focus on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, the ...
