• Speeding Up Non-Gaussian POLSAR Image Analysis 

    Doulgeris, Anthony Paul; Hu, Dingsheng (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017-12-04)
    Non-Gaussian statistical models fit SAR data better than Gaussian-based statistics, in most cases, but are complicated and time-consuming to use for unsupervised image segmentation via probabilistic clustering. The more advanced the model, the more complicated and slow the clustering. The U-distribution has been demonstrated to be one of the most flexible models, capturing the Gaussian/Wishart, the ...
  • Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) Modelling of Aquaculture Net Cage 

    Myrli, Odd Einar; Khawaja, Hassan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    The number of good sites in less exposed locations for aquaculture farming is limited. Trends are now that the fish cages are increasing in both width and depth, as well as more weather-exposed locations, are taken into use. As the net cages continue to increase in size, so does the material costs. The design of the sea cages should be modified for safe and reliable use in remote offshore locations. ...
  • Too much medicine? A study investigating unwarranted regional variation and use of medical care 

    Rosenlund, Ingvild Mathiesen (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2019-07-03)
    <p>Den overordna tematikken i avhandlingen er overforbruk og regional skeivbruk av helsetjenester. Fellesnevneren for delstudiene er manglende evidens for dagens praksis eller at dagens praksis ikke følger vitenskapelige anbefalinger. <p>Målet med avhandlingen var å: 1) Undersøke behandlingsmessig konsekvens av elektiv CT for pasienter med selvbegrensede anfall av mistenkt urolithiasis. 2) Kartlegge ...
  • Industry-led fishing gear development: Can it facilitate the process? 

    Veiga-Malta, Tiago; Feekings, Jordan; Herrmann, Bent; Krag, Ludvig A. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-05-16)
    In the reformed technical measures regulation, the European Union proposed a greater involvement of the fishing industry in the different managerial aspects of fisheries. However, having the industry as a main actor in gear development presents a new suite of challenges. The industry, while addressing an issue in the fishery, can modify several aspects of a fishing gear simultaneously, without ...
  • Resource rent in aquaculture 

    Flaaten, Ola; Pham, Thi Thanh Thuy (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2019)
    Resource rent in aquaculture (RRA) is any payment to a farm and site owner, on land or sea, in excess of the costs needed to bring that farm into production. For analytic and policy purposes it may be useful to distinguish among different types of RRA. Three types will be discussed: rent associated with the classical economists Ricardo (1821) and Faustmann (1849), as well as oligopoly rent from ...
