Overturning circulation in the new Arctic

Den atlantiske omveltningssirkulasjonen fører varmt, salt vann til høye breddegrader og er en nøkkelkomponent i den globale havsirkulasjonen og klimasystemet. Dannelsen av tungt vann (høy tetthet) på høye breddegrader er avgjørende for å opprettholde omveltningen. Tidligere har man antatt at denn...

Paleogene Basin Development on the Vøring and Møre Margins (PALMAR)

Den geologiske utviklingen av den midtnorske kontinentalmarginen utenfor Trøndelag og Nordland ble sterkt påvirket av massiv vulkanisme for rundt 56 millioner år siden. På dette tidspunktet skilte Norge og Grønland lag og Norskehavet ble dannet. Den massive vulkanismen utløste sannsynligvis en 4-...

DeepReservoir – Predicting reservoir properties in deep structures on the Norwegian Continental Shelf: The critical role of chlorite-coats

De fleste hydrokarbonressursene på norsk kontinentalsokkel finnes i porøse sandsteinsreservoarer. Når sandsteiner blir begravd dypere enn ca. 3 km begynner porerommet å fylles av kvartssement. Dette reduserer reservoarets evne til å lagre væsker, som olje, gass eller CO2. Av denne grunn er dype r...

Intelligent Decisions for Safe Navigation in Polar Waters under Uncertain Spray Icing Events

A major safety-related issue for the maritime activities and shipping in the polar waters is the accumulation of sea spray ice on vessels, which in severe cases, can lead to vessel capsizing and thus loss of life (e.g., loss of “Tradewind” in 2002, “Hunter” in 2007, in Alaska, the loss of the “De...
