  • Sámi new speakers: A case study of the North Sámi language beginner program at UiT 

    Ghiorghilas, Oana Maria (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-06-22)
    The present thesis focuses on students enrolled at UiT The Arctic University of Norway (UiT) during the 2020/2021 academic year in the Nordsamisk som fremmedspråk, North Sámi beginner language program. The study explores the process of becoming a Sámi new speaker through an educational program and the factors that motivate, promote, or prevent new speakers’ learning path. New speakers can contribute ...
  • Contrasting body burdens of organohalogenated contaminants in two Arctic glaucous gull Larus hyperboreus populations in relation to their dietary ecology 

    Husabø, Eirin (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-06-12)
    This study compared body burdens of organohalogenated contaminants (OHCs) between glaucous gull populations from Bjørnøya and Kongsfjorden, Svalbard and if OHC levels was influenced by their dietary ecology and biological variables (body condition index and sex). To do so, blood from 112 adult glaucous gulls were sampled during the breeding seasons of 2015 until 2019 in Bjørnøya and Kongsfjorden. ...
  • The role of Ediacaran synkinematic anatectic rocks and the late-orogenic charnockitic rocks in the development of the hot Araçuaí belt 

    Cavalcante, Carolina; Meira, Vinicius T.; Magalhães, Nivea; Hollanda, Maria Helena B.M.; Oliveira, Eurídice (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-09-13)
    The orogenic evolution of the hot Araçuaí belt is characterized by continuous magmatic activity, with magmas of different compositions recording a long-lived (∼630 to ∼530 Ma) tectono-thermal evolution in response to convergence between the Congo and São Francisco continents during the West Gondwana amalgamation. Geochemical data from the Carlos Chagas domain (CCD) and the Nova Venécia Complex (NVC), ...
  • How to Record Current Events like an Archaeologist 

    Magnani, Matthew Walker; Venovcevs, Anatolijs; Farstadvoll, Stein; Magnani, Natalia (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-15)
    This article shows how to record current events from an archaeological perspective. With a case study from the COVID-19 pandemic in Norway, we provide accessible tools to document broad spatial and behavioral patterns through material culture as they emerge. Stressing the importance of ethical engagement with contemporary subjects, we adapt archaeological field methods—including geolocation, ...
  • Effect of scavenging on predation in a food web 

    Mellard, Jarad; Hamel, Sandra; Henden, John-André; Ims, Rolf Anker; Stien, Audun; Yoccoz, Nigel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-04-26)
    <ol> <li>The fasting endurance hypothesis (FEH) predicts strong selection for large body size in mammals living in environments where food supply is interrupted over prolonged periods of time. The Arctic is a highly seasonal and food-restricted environment, but contrary to predictions from the FEH, empirical evidence shows that Arctic mammals are often smaller than their temperate conspecifics. ...
