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 ...
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 ...
On the evolution of the North Atlantic -from continental collapse to oceanic accretion
(The University of Bergen, 2013-10-23)
The North Atlantic between Iceland and Svalbard and surrounding continental areas represent an ideal laboratory for studying plate tectonic processes, due to the presence of well exposed continent-continent collision ...
From mountains to basins: geochronological case studies from southwestern Norway, Western Australia and East Antarctica
(The University of Bergen, 2012-03-02)
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 ...
Simulating the climatic response of Hardangerjøkulen in southern Norway since the Little Ice Age
(The University of Bergen, 2014-05-24)
Glacier and ice cap volume changes currently amount to half of the total contribution from the cryosphere to sea-level rise. Ice caps and their outlet glaciers are dynamically different from the Greenland and Antarctic ice ...
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 ...
Multidimensional Multirate Sampling and Seismic Migration
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-01)
Seismic data are usually recorded in time and space on rectangular lattices. Seismic wave propagation is described by the wave-equation, which yields a Fourier spectrum with smaller bandwidth than the rectangular periodicity ...
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 ...
Dansgaard-Oeschger cycles: Interactions between ocean and sea ice intrinsic to the Nordic seas
(American Geophysical UnionWiley, 2013-09)
Dansgaard-Oeschger (D-O) cycles are the most dramatic, frequent, and wide-reaching abrupt climate changes in the geologic record. On Greenland, D-O cycles are characterized by an abrupt warming of 10 ± 5°C from a cold ...
