Integration of ground-based hyperspectral and lidar scanning in virtual outcrop geology
(The University of Bergen, 2011-01-28)
The potential to visualize and analyse geological outcrops in a 3D environment has made terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) a standard method in geological field studies. Lidar models can be integrated with high resolution ...
Petrophysical Properties of Deformed Sandstone Reservoir
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-21)
Small scale deformation structures that mostly occur in highly porous rocks are called deformation bands. Petrophysical characteristics of deformation bands are different from those of host rock and they can act as ...
Influence of frozen ground on seismic data
(The University of Bergen, 2012-08-02)
The interest for subsurface exploration in the arctic is increasing. Thus knowledge about the effects of glaciers and permafrost on seismic data is needed. This thesis focuses on five questions that are relevant in this ...
Tectonic geomorphology of the Liri valley, central Apennines of Italy
(The University of Bergen, 2014-05-02)
This is a detailed study of hillside catchments in the Liri valley, central Apennines of Italy. Various geomorphic parameters extracted from a 20-m digital elevation model (DEM) are used to study the morphology of small ...
Identifying flood deposits in lake sediments: Changing frequencies and potential links to long-term climate change
(The University of Bergen, 2011-05-26)
This thesis consists of an introduction and three individual papers that investigate the possibility for identifying the sedimentary imprint of catchment processes in lake sediments, emphasising on extreme events and in ...
Ice-sheet dynamics and glacial development of the Norwegian continental margin during the last 3 million years
(The University of Bergen, 2007-06-29)
This thesis is mainly about the dynamics of the palaeo-ice sheets that covered Scandinavia, Barents Sea and Svalbard during the last glaciation. Morphological interpretation of regional and detailed bathymetric data sets ...
Seismicity in Pakistan during 2008 and Local Site Response in Muzaffarabad and Islamabad, Pakistan
(The University of Bergen, 2009-06-02)
Pakistan is tectonically significant and thus needs to be studied. In recent years, Pakistan is growing economically and the population has increased. Pakistan has experienced several disastrous earthquakes in the historical ...
Variability of precipitation in complex terrain and the investigation of representativeness of a single point measurement for the Matre Hydro System, Western Norway.
(The University of Bergen, 2009-06-08)
Orography is strongly affecting precipitation. Especially over complex terrain, the precipitation fields can show high spatial variability even over very small scales. In cooperation between the power company BKK ...
From mountains to basins: geochronological case studies from southwestern Norway, Western Australia and East Antarctica
(The University of Bergen, 2012-03-02)
