  • Utilizing Solar Vapour Energy by Use of Nanofluids in a Direct Absorption Solar Collector 

    Ulset, Edda Torsdottir (The University of Bergen, 2018-01)
    Traditional solar thermal collectors and photovoltaic (PV) systems suffer from low energy conversion efficiencies. This is mainly due to high thermal losses from overheated absorber plates or solar cells. For steam ...

  • Long-term trends in surface ocean pH in the North Atlantic 

    Lauvset, Siv Kari; Gruber, Nicolas (Elsevier, 2014-05)
    Presently available direct pH measurements do not have a sufficient data density in space or time in order to determine long-term trends across wider geographic regions, limiting our ability to assess the magnitude and ...
