Late Pleistocene-Holocene history of Svalbard ice caps and glaciers – integrating marine, terrestrial and lacustrine archives (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-03-25)The Arctic regions are affected by the modern climate change to a greater extent than the global average. This effect is called the Arctic amplification and is reflected in air temperatures rising with double rate and increased precipitation compared to the global average. The climate of Svalbard is strongly related to variations in the atmospheric and oceanic circulation patterns, and the archipelago ...
A biomarker approach to explain high cardiovascular disease burden in Russia: insights from population-based studies in Russia and Norway (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2021-03-25)Although the problem of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in Russia has been the subject of attention for decades, a definitive and comprehensive explanation of why the CVD burden there is so high and generally greater than in many other countries has still not been found. In this thesis, I have attempted to advance research on these issues by examining the role of blood lipids, heart damage biomarkers ...
Seafloor deposition of water-based drill cuttings generates distinctive and lengthy sediment bacterial community changes (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-01-27)The spatial extent and persistence of bacterial change caused by deposition of water-based drill cuttings on the seafloor were explored by a community-wide approach. Ten centimeter sediment cores were sampled along transects extending from ≤15 m to 250 m from three nearby drilling sites in the southern Barents Sea. Eight months, 8 years and 15 years, respectively, had passed since the completion of ...
Common social determinants for overweight and obesity, and dental caries among adolescents in Northern Norway: a cross-sectional study from the Tromsø Study Fit Futures cohort (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-02-05)<i>Background</i> - Non-communicable general and oral health conditions share common risk factors. Studies investigating common social determinants as risk factors for overweight/obesity and dental caries among the same adolescents are scarce and inconclusive.<p><p> <i>Methods</i> - This cross-sectional study included data from 464 girls and 494 boys from the population-based Tromsø study Fit ...
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-01-28)In this study, a numerical weak coupling strategy for the modeling of a conjugate heat transfer phenomenon is considered. Where the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations are solved using the Semi-Implicit Method for Pressure Linked Equations (SIMPLE) as a first step, and then the heat conduction equation for solid is solved in a second step considering the convective velocity field resulting from ...
