Effects of simulated natural variability on Arctic temperature
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-09-23)
A five-member ensemble with a coupled atmospheresea ice-ocean model is used to examine the effects of natural variability on climate projections for the Arctic. The individual ensemble members are initialized from a 300 ...
The Norwegian Hospital Reform - Balancing Political Control and Enterprise Autonomy
(Stein Rokkan Centre for Social Studies, 2003-12)
This paper focuses on the balance between superior governmental control and enterprise autonomy by examining the Norwegian Hospital Reform. We describe the enterprise model and give a description of the policy instruments ...

Arctic climate change: observed and modelled temperature and sea-ice variability
(Blackwell Munksgaard, 2004-07-09)
Changes apparent in the arctic climate system in recent years require evaluation in a century-scale perspective in order to assess the Arctic's response to increasing anthropogenic greenhouse-gas forcing. Here, a new set ...
Fluid Flow Properties of WAG Injection Processes
Immiscible water-alternating-gas (IWAG) experiments performed on equilibrated fluids are summarised together with the corresponding two-phase gas-oil and water-oil displacements. Experimental studies at reservoir condition ...
An intercomparison of large-eddy simulations of the stable boundary layer
(Springer Science (former Kluwer Academic Publishers), 2005)
Results are presented from the first intercomparison of Large-eddy simulation (LES) models for the stable boundary layer (SBL), as part of the GABLS (Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment Atmospheric Boundary Layer ...
Simulating transport of non-Chernobyl 137Cs and 90Sr in the North Atlantic–Arctic region
The spatial and temporal distributions of the anthropogenic radionuclides 137Cs and 90Sr, originating from nuclear bomb testing and the Sellafield reprocessing plants in the Irish Sea, are simulated using a global version ...
A late-winter to early-spring temperature reconstruction for southeastern Norway from 1758 to 2006
(International Glaciological Society, 2007-10)
Systematic temperature observations were not undertaken in Norway until the early 19th century, and even then only sporadically. Climate-proxy data may be used to reconstruct temperatures before this period, but until ...
Making Sense of Rare Earth Elements. An interdisciplinary approach to mineral resources’ ethics and governance
(The University of Bergen, 2013-05-24)
<p>This interdisciplinary PhD dissertation aims to identify and address the ethical challenges posed by rare earth elements, as a non-renewable, ill-distributed, and valuable resource. The overall theoretical framework ...
Toward an optimal inversion method for synthetic aperture radar wind retrieval
(American Geophysical Union, 2002-08-01)
In recent years, particular efforts have been made to derive wind fields over the oceans from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. In contrast with the scatterometer, the SAR has a higher spatial resolution and therefore ...
