• Multiple ontologies of Alzheimer’s disease in Still Alice and A Song for Martin: A feminist visual studies of technoscience perspective 

    Lukic, Dragana (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-02-22)
    The prevalence of dementia is increasing worldwide, but there is still no hope of a cure. Huge resources go into biomedical research, whose reductive ‘enactment’ has severe consequences for women, who are predominantly affected by dementia.<br> To challenge such tragic enactment, this article considers ‘multiple ontologies’ of the most common type of dementia – Alzheimer’s disease (AD) – in the ...
  • Prevention of microbial species introductions to the arctic: The efficacy of footwear disinfection measures on cruise ships 

    Rumpf, Sabine Bettina; Alsos, Inger Greve; Ware, Christopher (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-03-06)
    Biosecurity measures are commonly used to prevent the introduction of non-native species to natural environments globally, yet the efficacy of practices is rarely tested under operational conditions. A voluntary biosecurity measure was trialled in the Norwegian high Arctic following concern that non-native species might be transferred to the region on the footwear of travellers. Passengers aboard ...
  • Drones as a tool to monitor human impacts and vegetation changes in parks and protected areas 

    Ancin-Murguzur, Francisco Javier; Munoz, Lorena; Monz, Christopher; Hausner, Vera H. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-04)
    Increased visitation to protected areas could have adverse impacts on the conservation values in the protected areas, and therefore effective visitor monitoring methods are needed to meet the complex management challenges that arise. Collecting data on human impacts is highly time consuming, thus requiring more effective tools that allow for high-quality and long-term measurements. In this study, ...
  • MOSIDEO/CIRFA Tank Experiments on Behavior and Detection of Oil in Ice 

    Petrich, Christian; O'Sadnick, Megan Eileen; Brekke, Camilla; Myrnes, Marianne; Maus, Sønke; Salomon, Martina Lan; Woelk, Sofie; Grydeland, Tom; Jenssen, Rolf-Ole Rydeng; Eicken, Hajo; Oggier, Marc; Ferro-Famil, Laurent; Harkati, Lekhmissi; Rebane, Ott; Reimer, Nils (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed; Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2019-06)
    In the Arctic, presence of sea ice presents a challenge to safe and sustainable operations. To optimize planning and minimize impact of inadvertent oil spills, oil-in-ice experiments were performed at the HSVA Arctic Environmental Test Basin (AETB) from 14 March to 4 April 2017. Following an under-ice spill and simulated springtime warming, the microscopic movement and distribution of oil in the sea ...
  • Effect of three different codend designs on the size selectivity of juvenile cod in the Barents Sea shrimp trawl fishery 

    Herrmann, Bent; Sistiaga, Manu Berrondo; Larsen, Roger B.; Brinkhof, Jesse (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-07-31)
    Shrimp trawlers often use a Nordmøre sorting grid ahead of a small mesh codend to avoid bycatch of juvenile fish while allowing shrimps to be efficiently caught. However, small fish can pass through the grid to enter the codend and risk being retained. The risk of retention for fish of different sizes depends the size selection in the Nordmøre grid and the size selection in the subsequent codend, ...
