• Shared risk factors for arterial cardiovascular diseases and venous thromboembolism 

    Småbrekke, Birgit (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2019-06-28)
    <i>Summary</i> - Extensive evidence support an association between arterial cardiovascular disease (CVD, i.e. myocardial infarction [MI] and ischemic stroke), and subsequent venous thromboembolism (VTE, i.e. deep vein thrombosis [DVT]) and pulmonary emboli [PE]). However, the mechanism behind the associations remains unclear. The aim of this thesis was to investigate the impact of ischemic stroke ...
  • Faraday rotation fluctuations of MESSENGER radio signals through the equatorial lower corona near solar minimum 

    Wexler, D.B.; Jensen, E.A.; Hollweg, J.V.; Heiles, C.; Efimov, A.I.; Vierinen, J.; Coster, A.J. (Journal article; Peer reviewed; Tidsskriftsartikkel, 2016-12-26)
    Faraday rotation (FR) of transcoronal radio transmissions from spacecraft near superior conjunction enables study of the temporal variations in coronal plasma density, velocity, and magnetic field. The MESSENGER spacecraft 8.4 GHz radio, transmitting through the corona with closest line-of-sight approach 1.63–1.89 solar radii and near-equatorial heliolatitudes, was recorded soon after the deep ...
  • Determinants for participation in The Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Programme 

    Lillegaard, Siri Marlen Nordeng (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-06-20)
    Background: Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer among women worldwide, and the second most important cause of cancer death in developed countries after lung cancer. Early detection with mammographic screening reduces breast cancer mortality. Few studies have investigated factors associated with participation in The Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Programme. Objective: To identify determinants ...
  • A multi-objective mathematical programming for sustainable reverse logistics network design. Part II: Model application and analysis 

    Yu, Hao; Solvang, Wei Deng; Solvang, Bjørn (Peer reviewed; Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2016-02)
    Reverse logistics has received more and more attention during the past decade due to the increasing public awareness of sustainable development. Because of the fluctuation in both quantity and quality of the reverse material flow, design and planning of reverse logistics network is much more complicated compared with the forward ones. Therefore, it is important to develop decision support tools for ...
  • How is the carbon and oxygen isotope composition of foraminiferal tests influenced by methane seepage? 

    Bruvik, Kine Liland (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-05)
    The focus of this thesis is how methane seepage influences foraminifera l tests. Specifically, How how carbon and oxygen isotopes in planktic foraminifera tests are influenced by methane seepage. The study area is Vestnesa Ridge were four gravity cores were collected during a CAGE cruise in 2013. The cores were taken both from the southern side, where flares has have been recorded, and from the ...
