    Abrar, Attiqa (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2022-03-15)
    Bacteria are the planet’s oldest and the most common life forms. Bacteria have developed alongside humans and are good and harmful to our health. Our bodies contain nearly ten times the number of bacteria as human cells, and this natural microbiota is critical for appropriate development, nutrition, and disease resistance. Unfortunately, we live in an environment rich with bacteria that may cause ...
  • Planetary auroral imaging 

    Nagoshi, Yoshiaki (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2021-07-09)
    The interaction of the solar wind and the Earth magnetosphere cause auroras. The energetic electrically charged particles, mostly electrons, accelerate along the Earth magnetic field lines into the upper atmosphere, where they collide with gas atoms, causing them to emit light. Some planets also have auroral emission in their characteristic environment. The Jovian magnetosphere is the largest ...
