Testing a Flexible Method to Reduce False Monsoon Onsets
To generate information about the monsoon onset and withdrawal we have to choose a monsoon definition and apply it to data. One problem that arises is that false monsoon onsets can hamper our analysis, which is often ...
Implementation of Improved EDC Combustion Model in the Open LES Code FDS
(The University of Bergen, 2012-08-09)
In this thesis, Magnussen’s and Hjertager’s Eddy Dissipation Concept (EDC) Combustion Model has been implemented in the CFD code Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS). FDS is an open source non-commercial Large Eddy Simulation ...
Thermal stratification influences maturation and timing of spawning in a local Clupea harengus population
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2013)
Processing and interpretation of multichannel seismic data from Van Mijenfjorden, Svalbard
(The University of Bergen, 2011-10-23)
This work was done based on 19 seismic lines from Van Mijenfjorden, collected during Svalex in 2007 and 2008. In the first part of the thesis the seismic data, with particular emphasis on removal of seabed multiples have ...
Taxonomic overview of calcareous sponges (Porifera, Calcarea) in the Jan Mayen vent field at the Mohn Ridge
(The University of Bergen, 2013-12-17)
The Porifera is a very old group of organisms that has been dated back to more than 500 million years. They are important to marine benthic communities by providing protection, contributing to nutrient recycling and ...
A bio-economic analysis of harvest control rules for the Northeast Arctic cod fishery
Harvest control rules (HCRs) have been implemented for many fisheries worldwide. However, in most instances, those HCRs are not based on the explicit feedbacks between stock properties and economic considerations. This ...
Comparative neuroanatomy suggests repeated reduction of neuroarchitectural complexity in Annelida
(BioMed Central, 2010-05-04)
Background Paired mushroom bodies, an unpaired central complex, and bilaterally arranged clusters of olfactory glomeruli are among the most distinctive components of arthropod neuroarchitecture. Mushroom body neuropils, ...
Strategies for partition between reproductive investment and body growth in stationary and migratory stocks of Atlantic herring
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-01)
The present study focused on the trade-off between reproductive investment and body growth of migratory and stationary Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus) populations. Published data from Norwegian spring-spawning (NSS) ...
Comparison of planar and 3D silicon pixel sensors used for detection of low energy antiprotons
The principle aim of the AEḡIS experiment at CERN is to measure the acceleration of antihydrogen due to Earth’s gravitational field. This would be a test of the Weak Equivalence Principle, which states that all bodies ...
Long-term dynamics of wadi trees in a hyper-arid cultural landscape
(The University of Bergen, 2007-03-09)
This study focuses on the long-term dynamics of wadi (dry river valley) trees, in particular Acacia tortilis (Forssk.) Hayne, in the hyper-arid Eastern Desert of Egypt. The project was motivated by the importance of ...
