Group Based Asymmetry – A Fast Saliency Algorithm
(Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2015-12-18)
In this paper, we propose a saliency model that makes two major changes in a latest state-of-the-art model known as group based asymmetry. First, based on the properties of the dihedral group D4 we simplify the asymmetry calculations associated with the measurement of saliency. This results is an algorithm which reduces the number of calculations by at-least half that makes it the fastest among the ...
Modelling the transport of oil after a proposed oil spill accident in Barents Sea and its environmental impact on Alke species
(Peer reviewed; Bokkapittel; Konferansebidrag; Conference object; Chapter, 2017)
Accidental oil spills can have significant effect on the coastal and marine environment. As the oil extraction and exploration activities increase in the Barents Sea, it is of increasingly importance to investigate the potential oil spill incidents associated with these activities. In this study, the transport and fate of oil after a proposed oil spill incident in Barents Sea was modelled by oil ...
The effect of drinking water quality on the health and longevity of people-A case study in Mayang, Hunan province, China
(Peer reviewed; Bokkapittel; Chapter, 2017)
Drinking water is an important source for trace elements intake into human body. Thus, the drinking water quality has a great impact on people's health and longevity. This study aims to study the relationship between drinking water quality and human health and longevity. A longevity county Mayang in Hunan province, China was chosen as the study area. The drinking water and hair of local centenarians ...
Identifying hazards to include in risk analyses
(Book; Bok; Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2018)
A risk analysis should provide decision makers with information regarding relevant hazards. The initiating phase, where the risk analysts identify hazards to be included in the risk analysis, lays the foundation for the rest of the analysis. This phase is, therefore, of great importance. In this paper, we examine how risk analysts in a municipal setting identified potential adverse events and how ...
The Compliance Challenges in Emissions Control Regulations to Reduce Air Pollution from Shipping
(Peer reviewed; Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2019-10-14)
One of the thorny problems perplexing the maritime industry is to comply with existing and soon-to-be-enacted regulations towards emissions reduction from shipping. This problem has been discussed in this study under three viewpoints: i) the marine engine efficiency, ii) the decision-making process for selecting the technologies for reducing air emissions from shipping and iii) the challenges in the ...
