Deep ocean experiments with fossil fuel carbon dioxide: creation and sensing of a controlled plume at 4 km depth
(Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2005-01)
The rapidly rising levels of atmospheric and oceanic CO2 from the burning of fossil fuels has lead to well-established international concerns over dangerous anthropogenic interference with climate. Disposal of captured ...
Global observed changes in daily climate extremes of temperature and precipitation
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-03-15)
A suite of climate change indices derived from daily temperature and precipitation data, with a primary focus on extreme events, were computed and analyzed. By setting an exact formula for each index and using specially ...
Characteristics of the flank magnetopause: Cluster observations
(WileyAmerican Geophysical Union, 2014-11)
The magnetopause is a current sheet forming the boundary between the geomagnetic field on one side and the shocked solar wind on the other side. This paper discusses properties of the low-latitude dawn and dusk flanks ...
Improving Efficiency in Parameter Estimation Using the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo Algorithm
(The University of Bergen, 2008)
This thesis investigates three approaches to improve the performance of the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo algorithm. The first approach enhances the Hamiltonian Monte Carlo by suppressing random walk in the Gibbs sampling using ...
Klimaeffektar av redusert arktisk sommarisdekke: ein modellstudie
(The University of Bergen, 2006)
Identification and characterization of retinoblastoma gene mutations disturbing apoptosis in human breast cancers
(BioMed Central, 2010-07-01)
Background The tumor suppressor pRb plays a key role regulating cell cycle arrest, and disturbances in the RB1 gene have been reported in different cancer forms. However, the literature reports contradictory findings with ...
Characterization of untranslated regions of the salmonid alphavirus 3 (SAV3) genome and construction of a SAV3 based replicon
(BioMed Central, 2009-10-27)
Salmonid alphavirus (SAV) causes disease in farmed salmonid fish and is divided into different genetic subtypes (SAV1-6). Here we report the cloning and characterization of the 5'- and 3'- untranslated regions (UTR) of a ...
A community-based geological reconstruction of Antarctic Ice Sheet deglaciation since the Last Glacial Maximum
A robust understanding of Antarctic Ice Sheet deglacial history since the Last Glacial Maximum is important in order to constrain ice sheet and glacial-isostatic adjustment models, and to explore the forcing mechanisms ...
MassAnalyzer, a program to help find labeled peptides and compare them to their unlabeled counterparts in a SILAC experiment
(The University of Bergen, 2008-11-27)
Mass spectrometry(MS) have become an increasingly popular analysis method for high throughput experiments on proteins in biology. SILAC(stable isotope labeling by amino acids in cell culture) is a method within MS that ...
Low-temperature thermochronological and structural study of the inner Hardangerfjord area, southern Norway
(The University of Bergen, 2012-10-29)
The origin of the mountainous topography in southern Norway is at present unresolved. Post-Devonian sediments are absent onshore, making quantification of crustal uplift and fault displacements difficult. Low-temperature ...
