• #### "De snakker og snakker om asylsøkere, men de kjenner oss ikke". Historier fra asylsøkere i London ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-12)
Denne oppgaven tar utgangspunkt i historier som er fortalt meg fra mennesker som er i, eller har gjennomgått en asylprosess i London. Mine informanter synes å være begrenset hvordan i hvordan de kan komme til uttrykk. Jeg ...
• #### Cancer and Total Hip Replacement. Cancer as a risk factor for prosthesis and prosthesis as a risk factor for cancer ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2015-09-18)
Annually, 14 million new cancer cases are detected worldwide; the numbers are expected to rise by 70% over the next decades. In Norway, 30,000 new cancer cases are detected every year. Because of screenings and increased ...
• #### A review of air-ice chemical and physical interactions (AICI): Liquids, quasi-liquids, and solids in snow ﻿

(Copernicus Publications, 2014-02-12)
Snow in the environment acts as a host to rich chemistry and provides a matrix for physical exchange of contaminants within the ecosystem. The goal of this review is to summarise the current state of knowledge of physical ...
• #### Search for non-pointing and delayed photons in the diphoton and missing transverse momentum final state in 8 TeV $pp$ collisions at the LHC using the ATLAS detector ﻿

(American Physical Society, 2014-12-10)
A search has been performed, using the full 20.3 fb$^{-1}$ data sample of 8 TeV proton--proton collisions collected in 2012 with the ATLAS detector at the LHC, for photons originating from a displaced vertex due to the ...
• #### Measurements of spin correlation in top-antitop quark events from proton-proton collisions at $\sqrt{s}=7$ TeV using the ATLAS detector ﻿

(American Physical Society, 2014-12-24)
Measurements of spin correlation in top quark pair production are presented using data collected with the ATLAS detector at the LHC with proton--proton collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 7 TeV, corresponding to an ...
• #### Vertically averaged equations with variable density for CO2 flow in porous media ﻿

(Springer, 2015-03)
Carbon capture and storage has been proposed as a viable option to reduce CO 2 emissions. Geological storage of CO 2 where the gas is injected into geological formations for practically indefinite storage, is an ...
• #### Delivery of the Sox9 gene promotes chondrogenic differentiation of human umbilical cord blood-derived mesenchymal stem cells in an in vitro model ﻿

(SciELO, 2014-04)
SRY-related high-mobility-group box 9 (Sox9) gene is a cartilage-specific transcription factor that plays essential roles in chondrocyte differentiation and cartilage formation. The aim of this study was to investigate the ...
• #### Sleep and body mass index in adolescence: results from a large population-based study of Norwegian adolescents aged 16 to 19 years ﻿

(BioMed Central, 2014-08-15)
Background: The aim of this study was to examine the association between body mass index (BMI) and sleep duration, insomnia and symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in adolescents. Methods: Data were taken from a ...
• #### Has a warm North Atlantic contributed to recent European cold winters? ﻿

(IOP Publishing, 2014-06-02)
The rise of global surface temperature waned during the last decade, despite increasing greenhouse gas concentrations. The temperature changes were most pronounced over northern hemisphere land masses during winter (Cohen ...
• #### Responsibility to Protect in Application: A Comparative Analysis of Libya and Syria during the Arab spring ﻿

(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
Responsibility to protect (RtoP) is a recent concept of international politics, whose goal is to define the best attitude to adopt when the world is confronted to grave humanitarian crises. Within RtoP, each state carries ...
