Environmental change and atmospheric contamination on Svalbard: sediment chronology
Sediment cores collected from eight lakes along the western coast of Svalbard as part of a project investigating atmospheric pollution and environmental change in Arctic regions were dated radiometrically using natural ...
Four billion years of ophiolites reveal secular trends in oceanic crust formation
We combine a geological, geochemical and tectonic dataset from 118 ophiolite complexes of the major global Phanerozoic orogenic belts with similar datasets of ophiolites from 111 Precambrian greenstone belts to construct ...
Processing and Interpretation of Multichannel Seismic Data from Isfjorden, Svalbard
(The University of Bergen, 2011-11-20)
This research project is based on the processing and interpretation of nine 2D multichannel seismic profiles from Isfjorden, acquired in 2008, 2009 and 2010 by the University of Bergen. The first part of the thesis describes ...
Geochronology and tectonic setting of voluminous granitoids and related rocks and associated extensional structures in Dronning Maud Land (East Antarctica)
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-15)
The history of the tectonic evolution in central Dronning Maud Land (cDML), East Antarctica can be inferred from various zircon grains for U-Pb zircon age determination with the Laser-Ablation Inductively-Coupled-Plasma ...
Earthquake Damage and Loss Assessment – Predicting the Unpredictable
(The University of Bergen, 2013-05-10)
Drumlin relief is a key parameter for testing predictions of models of drumlin formation. Although this metric is commonly described in textbooks as being of the order of a fewtens ofmetres, our critical review of the ...
The Petroleum Systems of the South Viking Graben, Norway

Transgressive development of coal-bearing coastal plain to shallow marine setting in a flexural compressional basin, Paleocene, Svalbard, Arctic Norway
(The University of Bergen, 2008-09-08)
The most extensive Paleogene succession on Svalbard, in the Arctic north of Norway, is found in the Central Tertiary Basin of Spitsbergen. It consists of a clastic basin fill of mudstone, sandstone, coal and rare ...
Rock physics interpolation Used for velocity modeling of chalks: Ontong Java plateau example
(Bentham Open, 2010)
Chalks are pelagic carbonate sediments that are deposited in deep-water environments. Their elastic behaviour is controlled by a combination of depositional conditions and subsequent diagenesis. In this paper, we ...
Seismic study along the west Spitsbergen continental margin and adjacent area of the West Spitsbergen Fold and Thrust Belt (Isfjorden)
(The University of Bergen, 2011-11-18)
