• A climatic trigger for the giant Troll pockmark field in the northern North Sea 

      Mazzini, Adriano; Svensen, Henrik; Forsberg, Carl Fredrik; Linge, Henriette; Lauritzen, Stein-Erik; Haflidason, Haflidi; Hammer, Øyvind; Planke, Sverre; Tjelta, Tor-Inge (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-04)
      Pockmarks are seafloor craters usually formed during methane release on continental margins. However, the mechanisms behind their formation and dynamics remain elusive. Here we report detailed investigations on one of the ...
    • Detecting multiscale karst features including hidden caves using microgravimetry in a Caledonian nappe setting: Mefjell massif, Norway. 

      Solbakk, Terje; Fichler, Christine; Wheeler, Walter H; Lauritzen, Stein-Erik; Ringrose, Philip (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-11-20)
      Cave passages and karst features form negative density contrasts expressed in gravity field anomalies. We present an interpretation approach for microgravimetry, applicable for challenging geological settings with heterogeneous ...
    • Geocellular rendering of cave surveys in paleokarst reservoir models 

      Lønøy, Bjarte; Tveranger, Jan; Pennos, Christos; Whitaker, Fiona; Lauritzen, Stein-Erik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Infilled and collapsed cave systems are an important component of many paleokarst reservoirs. Incorporating these features into industrial reservoir models commonly relies on geostatistical modelling methods that often ...
    • Monitoring and risk assessment for groundwater sources in rural communities of Romania (GROUNDWATERISK) 

      Moldovan, Oana; Skoglund, Rannveig Øvrevik; Banciu, Horia Leonard; Cucos, Alexandra; Levei, Erika Andrea; Persoiu, Aurel; Lauritzen, Stein-Erik (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      In the past 100 years, a decreasing rainfall trend has been recorded on Romanian territory, a trend that continues today. Therefore, realistic estimation of the groundwater resources is crucial, especially for the rural ...
    • Morphology and life history divergence in cave and surface populations of Gammarus lacustris (L.) 

      Østbye, Kjartan; Østbye, Eivind; Lien, Anne May; Lee, Laura R.; Lauritzen, Stein-Erik; Carlini, David B. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-10-25)
      Cave animals provide a unique opportunity to study contrasts in phenotype and life history in strikingly different environments when compared to surface populations, potentially related to natural selection. As such, we ...
