Predation by carabid beetles (Coleoptera, Carabidae) on the invasive Iberian slug Arion lusitanicus
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-21)
Predator-prey and host-parasite interactions are essential in understanding the population dynamics of any species, including pest species. In fact, integrated pest management that incorporates biological control requires ...
The influence of input uncertainties on remotely sensed estimates of ocean primary productivity
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-10)
Temporally and spatially dense estimates of oceanic phytoplankton net primary productivity (NPP), which are commonly derived by mathematical models from satellite observations of ocean colour, are a cornerstone of current ...
On iterative decoding of high-density parity-check codes using edge-local complementation
(The University of Bergen, 2010-11-24)
The overall topic of this work is a graph operation known as edgelocal complementation (ELC) and its applications to iterative decoding of classical codes. Although these legacy codes are arguably not well-suited for ...
Tectonostratigraphic evolution of a multi-episodic rift. The northern Norway - Greenland rift: from post-orogenic exhumation to deep marine turbidites
(The University of Bergen, 2015)
The aim of this project is to improve the tectonostratigraphic understanding of the northern part of the Norwegian passive continental margin, the so-called Lofoten margin, and contribute to the wider understanding of ...
Deformation of sandstone reservoirs. Insight from experiments and field studies
(The University of Bergen, 2014-09-18)
Decadal solar irradiance variability in northern Europe
(The University of Bergen, 2014-11-28)
Shortwave (SW) radiation from the Sun is the external energy source on Earth and the fundamental input of energy into the climate system. Variations of the SW radiation and its transfer through the atmosphere can have ...
Empirical and Numerical Evaluation of Mechanisms in Gas Production from CH4-Hydrates: Emphasis on Kinetics, Electrical Resistivity, Depressurization and CO2-CH4 Exchange
(The University of Bergen, 2013-12-13)
Focus is shifted towards renewable energy and sources of natural gas as the demand for cleaner energy continues to increase with global awareness on anthropogenic climate change. Methane (CH4) provides advantages such as ...
Physical and Chemical Processes in the Bjerkreim-Sokndal Magma Chamber
(The University of Bergen, 2010-03-19)
Sequential Data Assimilation in High Dimensional Nonlinear Systems
(The University of Bergen, 2011-10-21)
Since its introduction in 1994, the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) has gained a lot of attention as a tool for sequential data assimilation in many scientific areas. Due to its computationally fast and easy to implement ...
3D stochastic modelling of fault zones in siliciclastic reservoirs. Implications for reservoir description and fluid flow modelling
(The University of Bergen, 2014-12-16)
Fault zones in siliciclastic rocks form distinct volumetric entities and typically exhibit great structural complexity. While it has been considered that the main impact of fault zones to fluid flow is to baffle or block ...
