Ice-sheet dynamics and glacial development of the Norwegian continental margin during the last 3 million years
(The University of Bergen, 2007-06-29)
This thesis is mainly about the dynamics of the palaeo-ice sheets that covered Scandinavia, Barents Sea and Svalbard during the last glaciation. Morphological interpretation of regional and detailed bathymetric data sets ...
Simulating the Effect of Release of Pressure and Dust Lifting on Coal Dust Explosions
Dispersion of accumulated layers of combustible dust by turbulent flow or shock waves ahead of a propagating flame can play an important role for explosion propagation in coal mines. In 1924, Greenwald and Wheeler ...
Simplified modelling of explosion propagation by dust lifting in coal mines
(School of Engineering and Electronics, University of Edinburgh, 2007)
Dispersion of accumulated layers of combustible dust by turbulent flow or shock waves ahead of the propagating flame may sustain explosion propagation in coal mine galleries and other industrial facilities. The mechanisms ...
Numerical Modeling of Supercritical ‘Out-Salting’ in the “Atlantis II Deep” (Red Sea) Hydrothermal System
(Bentham Open, 2007)
Supercritical water behaves close to that of a non-polar fluid and its ability to dissolve salt ions is very low. In rifting locations world-wide, where hot vents occur, it has been shown that seawater attains supercritical ...
Highest treeline in the Northern Hemisphere found in Southern Tibet
(International Mountain Society, 2007)
Three new records of the highest treelines in the northern hemisphere are presented here, based on the definition of a “tree.” The tree species with the highest treeline in the northern hemisphere is Juniperus tibetica ...
Numerical simulation of turbidity currents: a new perspective for small- and large-scale sedimentological experiments
(The University of Bergen, 2007)
Turbidity currents are a variety of subaqueous sediment-gravity flows, in which the suspension of sediment by water turbulence produces a water-sediment mixture that is denser than the ambient water and hence flows due ...
Ichthyobodo hippoglossin. sp. (Kinetoplastea: Prokinetoplastida: Ichthyobodonidae fam. nov.), an ectoparasitic flagellate infecting farmed Atlantic halibut Hippoglossus hippoglossus
Diseased Atlantic halibut Hippoglossus hippoglossus juveniles from a hatchery in western Norway showed gill and skin infections with an Ichthyobodo species. Genus Ichthyobodo contains a single valid species, I. necator, ...
Supersymmetric Cascade Decays at the LHC
(The University of Bergen, 2007-06-04)
Nuclear modification factor for charged pions and protons at forward rapidity in central Au plus Au collisions at 200 GeV
We present spectra of charged pions and protons in 0–10% central Au + Au collisions at View the MathML sourcesNN=200 GeV at mid-rapidity (y=0y=0) and forward pseudorapidity (η=2.2η=2.2) measured with the BRAHMS experiment ...
Charged Higgs boson searches and SemiConductor Tracker commissioning for the ATLAS experiment
(The University of Bergen, 2007-06-21)
The ATLAS (A Toroidal Lhc ApparatuS) experiment is one of four major experiments presently being installed at the upcoming Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN) outside Geneva. In ...
