High Mountain Melt-Down: Local Perceptions of Global Warming in the Andes and Himalayas
(The University of Bergen, 2008)
Present scientific knowledge about global warming affirms that ice and snow packs in the high mountains of the world are melting at increasing rates (see IPCC 2007 and UNEP 2007). Melting glaciers and receding snowlines ...
Structural development of the Håsteinen Devonian Massif, its Caledonian substrate and the subjacent Nordfjord–Sogn Detachment Zone - a contribution to the understanding of Caledonian contraction and Devonian extension in West Norway
(The University of Bergen, 2008-05-30)
In western Norway, the contractional history of the Caledonian Orogeny ended with the Scandian continentcontinent collision between Baltica and Laurentia at around 420-400 Ma, resulting in formation of eclogites in the ...
Structure and evolution of the Bellsund Graben between Forlandsundet and Bellsund (Spitsbergen) based on marine seismic data
(Geological Soceity of Norway, 2009)
Seismic interpretation of multi-channel seismic data acquired along the western shelf of Spitsbergen allowed identification of the main geological features of the area, including the Hornsund Fault Zone, and the Forlandsundet ...
Sr/Ca in Calcitic Tests of Benthic Foraminifera - A Potential Water-Depth Proxy?
(Bentham Open, 2009)
Well-preserved low-Mg calcite tests of modern benthic foraminifera from a depth transect off SW Norway show decreasing Sr/Ca with increasing water depth (r = –0.84). The Mg/Ca ratios also decrease with increasing water depth, ...
