• Can biodegradable materials reduce plastic pollution without decreasing catch efficiency in longline fishery? 

    Cerbule, Kristine; Grimaldo, Eduardo; Herrmann, Bent; Larsen, Roger B.; Brčić, Jure; Vollstad, Jørgen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-03-23)
    Longlining is a widely used fishing method. During longline fishing, some of the snoods connecting the hooks to the mainline are often lost at sea. Since snoods are made of nylon or polyester, lost snoods contribute to marine plastic pollution. Replacing nylon or polyester with a new material made of biodegradable plastics can potentially reduce macro- and microplastic pollution that is caused by ...
  • Personalizing Virtual Reality for the Research and Treatment of Fear-Related Disorders: A Mini Review 

    Bergsnev, Kamilla; Sanchez Laws, Ana Luisa (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-04-29)
    This mini review presents the current state of the art in studies on the personalization of virtual reality for basic research and treatment of fear-related disorders. Of particular interest to the review are the choice of self-report measures and manipulations of contextual factors that researchers are using in their virtual reality procedures. As this mini review will show, work is starting ...
  • Finite element simulation of transmission and reflection of acoustic waves in the ultrasonic transducer 

    Shukla, Kaushik; Ahmad, Azeem; Ahluwalia, Balpreet Singh; Melandsø, Frank; Habib, Anowarul (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-03-30)
    In scanning acoustic microscopy (SAM), the image quality depends on several factors such as noise level, resolution, and interaction of the waves with sample boundaries. The theoretical equations for the reflection coefficient and transmission coefficient are suitable for plane boundaries but fail for curved/rough boundaries. We presented a finite element method-based modeling for the loss ...
  • The Significance of Touch in Pediatric Physiotherapy 

    Sørvoll, Marit; Øberg, Gunn Kristin; Girolami, Gay L (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-05-31)
    Change in theoretical framework over the last decades and recent research in pediatric physiotherapy, has created a debate surrounding therapeutic touch. What is the role of or is there a need for handling and hands-on facilitated guidance (facilitation)? Does it limit and/or interfere with children’s learning and development? It is frequently argued that therapeutic touch represents a passive ...
  • Plasma-neutral gas interactions in various space environments: Assessment beyond simplified approximations as a Voyage 2050 theme 

    Yamauchi, Masatoshi; De Keyser, Johan; Parks, George; Oyama, Shin-ichiro; Wurz, Peter; Abe, Takumi; Beth, Arnaud; Daglis, Ioannis A.; Dandouras, Iannis; Dunlop, Malcolm; Henri, Pierre; Ivchenko, Nickolay; Kallio, Esa; Kucharek, Harald; Liu, Yong C.-M.; Mann, Ingrid; Marghitu, Octav; Nicolaou, Georgios; Rong, Zhaojin; Sakanoi, Takeshi; Saur, Joachim; Shimoyama, Manabu; Taguchi, Satoshi; Tian, Feng; Tsuda, Takuo; Tsurutani, Bruce; Turner, Drew; Ulich, Thomas; Yau, Andrew; Yoshikawa, Ichiro (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-03-26)
    In the White Paper, submitted in response to the European Space Agency (ESA) Voyage 2050 Call, we present the importance of advancing our knowledge of plasma-neutral gas interactions, and of deepening our understanding of the partially ionized environments that are ubiquitous in the upper atmospheres of planets and moons, and elsewhere in space. In future space missions, the above task ...
