Exploring the Microseismicity of the Gakkel Ridge from Arctic Sea Ice
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-03)
Monitoring of microseismicity is an important tool to understand the magmatism, tectonics and hydrothermal circulation of a mid-oceanic ridge. In the presence of sea ice, use of ocean bottom seismometers is not practical, ...
Seismic hazard in Norway due to large earthquakes
(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
There are many faults located in Norway, posing as potential earthquake sources. Even though the seismicity is characterized as low to moderate, earthquakes of magnitude 3.5 or lower occur regularly. The seismic hazard ...
Postglacial mass movements and depositional environments in a high-latitude fjord system – Hardangerfjorden, Western Norway
High resolution acoustic data and a 15.7 m long sediment core from the Hardangerfjorden system, western Norway, have been analyzed to increase our knowledge on depositional environments, submarine mass movement trigger ...
NE Atlantic continental slope stability from a numerical modeling perspective
Trough mouth fans are environments characterized by high sediment supply during glacial stages and the occurrence of large-scale instabilities. The geological record indicates that several of these environments have failed ...
Modelling of an OBS profile across Storfjorden, Svalbard
(The University of Bergen, 2017-12-16)
In this thesis, seismograms from eight Ocean Bottom Seismometers (OBS) have been processed, interpreted and used to obtain a 2D velocity model of a crustal transect across Storfjorden south of Svalbard through forward/inverse ...
