    • Turbulent diffusion and transport from a CO2 lake in the deep ocean 

      Haugan, Peter Mosby; Alendal, Guttorm (American Geophysical Union, 2005-09-21)
      If liquid CO2 is stored as a dense ‘‘lake’’ on the deep ocean floor, it is expected to dissolve in seawater. Ocean currents and turbulence can increase the net rate of CO2 release by several orders of magnitude compared ...

    • Unusual subduction zones: Case studies in Colombia and Iran 

      Zarifi, Zoya (The University of Bergen, 2007-02-16)
      Subduction zones, usually, are plate boundaries with the highest level of seismic activity. However, the distribution of seismicity in these plate margins is not uniform in the frequency and magnitude. Some margins produce ...
