A secondary aim was to explore plausible explanations for possible differences between countries.<br> Design <br> Ecological study using national registry data concerning births and abortions among all women aged 15–19 years residing in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden ...
  • Classical Risk Factors of Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs) in Arkhangelsk: Have They Changed over the Years? Comparison of Cross-sectional Studies: Arkhangelsk Study 2000 and Arkhangelsk Part of Know Your Heart Study 2015-17. 

    Komatsu, Aya (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-31)
    Background: According to the World Health Organization, 31% of all deaths worldwide result from cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), mostly in low- and middle-income countries. Even though Russia, an upper-middle income country, still have higher CVD mortality compared to the neighboring countries such as Finland and Norway, it has seen a reduction in CVD mortality since the turn of the millennium. ...
  • Ocean predation and mortality of adult Atlantic salmon 

    Strøm, John Fredrik; Rikardsen, Audun Håvard; Campana, Steven E.; Righton, David; Carr, Jonathan; Aarestrup, Kim; Stokesbury, Michael J.W.; Gargan, Patrick; Javierre, Pablo Caballero; Thorstad, Eva Bonsak (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-05-27)
    Predation and mortality are often difficult to estimate in the ocean, which hampers the management and conservation of marine fishes. We used data from pop-up satellite archival tags to investigate the ocean predation and mortality of adult Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) released from 12 rivers flowing into the North Atlantic Ocean. Data from 156 tagged fish revealed 22 definite predation events (14%) ...
  • An investigation of the robustness of distance measure-based supervised labelling of segmented remote sensing images 

    Kiærbech, Åshild (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-03)
    Unsupervised clustering methods on remote sensing images have shown good results. However, this type of machine learning needs additional labelling to be an end-to-end classification in the same manner as traditional supervised classification. The automation of the labelling needs further exploration. We want to investigate the robustness of a supervised automatic labelling scheme by comparing a ...
  • On the relationship between global mean temperature in historical runs of Earth system models and equilibrium climate sensitivity 

    Haug, Sofie Flyvholm (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-31)
    Equilibrium climate sensitivity (ECS) measures the long-term global surface temperature response due to a doubling of CO2 in the atmosphere. Estimates of ECS is not well constrained, 1.5-4.5C [Pachauri et al., 2014], and there is a wide spread between different Earth system models (ESMs). Recently it has been suggested that ECS can be constrained using an observed relationship between the statistical ...
