    To evaluate the teaching effect of a trauma training program in emergency cranial neurosurgery in Cambodia on surgical outcomes for patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). We analyzed the data of TBI patients who received emergency burr-hole trephination or craniotomy from a prospective, descriptive cohort study at the Military Region 5 Hospital between January 2015 and December 2016. TBI ...

  • Geomagnetically induced currents in a Norwegian transformer station 

    Solheim, Kristian Thinn; Mo, Olve; Johnsen, Magnar Gullikstad (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2022-05-11)
    This report considers measurements of geomagnetically induced current (GIC) and comparison to recorded variations in the geomagnetic field (dB/dt). The GIC-sensors were installed in the neutral point of a 420 kV transformer located in Mid-Norway in 2019. The magnetometers (for dB/dt) are also located in Mid-Norway, but at another location. Recordings up to December 2021 are presented in this report. ...

  • TA 2020/25 Krigsmonumentet i kirkeparken i Tromsø. Flytting av minnestøtte i Kirkeparken, Tromsø kommune 

    Hesjedal, Anders; Jørgensen, Erlend Kirkeng (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2022-02-10)
    I forbindelse med flytting av krigsmonumentet i Kirkeparken i Tromsø ble det foretatt graving under arkeologisk overvåkning. Det ble gravd et rektangulært område 5,4mx4,6mx0,8m til fundamentet for monumentet. Det ble avdekket spor etter tidlig 1900-tall aktivitet, men ingen automatisk fredede kulturminner.

    Salem, Zenhom El-Said; Elnahrawy, Abdelaziz M.; Abdelrahman, Kamal; Fnais, Mohammed S.; Abu-Alam, Tamer (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-01-19)
    This work aims to utilize oxygen and hydrogen stable isotopes as tracers for determining the groundwater sources of recharge in the central Nile delta. The analyzed water samples were collected from canals and drains as surface water, soil water and shallow, intermediate and deep zones of the groundwater. The isotopic data indicated that surface water samples have higher isotopic content than recent ...

    Timonin, Sergey; Klimkin, Ilya; Shkolnikov, Vladimir M.; Andreev, Evgeny; McKee, Martin; Leon, David A. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-12-21)
    Background: Russia has been portrayed in media as having one of the highest death tolls due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the world. However, the precise scale of excess mortality is still unclear. We provide the first estimates of excess mortality in Russia as a whole and its regions in 2020, placing this in an international context. Methods: We used monthly death rates for Russia and 83 regions ...
  • Building a research data archive - what flavour should it be? 

    Hasan, Adil; Conzett, Philipp (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2022-06)
    The Sigma2 Research Data Archive in Norway has been running for more than 7 years and has accumulated more than 500TiB of data distributed over more than 400 datasets. Some datasets have been downloaded more than 600 times since their deposit. During this time, we have seen the needs of our researchers change as their experience with data management has matured. To address these needs, a project ...

  • The impact of COVID-19 on European tourists' attitudes to air travel and the consequences for tourist destination evoked set formation 

    Gallego, Inma; Font aulet, Xavier; González-Rodríguez, M. Rosario (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-02-10)
    We study how risk conditions derived from the COVID-19 pandemic may impact on both the desire to travel and intention to visit of tourists and, therefore, on different stages of the destination choice process. We analyse 5134 million flight searches and 379 million flight picks during 2020 for the 17 largest European tourism source markets. An unweighted index number is employed to measure the ...
  • Looking for Common Ground: Marine Living Resource Development in Alaska and Northern Norway in the Context of the Blue Economy 

    Tsiouvalas, Apostolos; Stoeva, Gergana; Raspotnik, Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-03-30)
    Although the concept of the blue economy was created by the Small Island Developing States, its relevance extends to any coastal region around the globe, making the engagement of both state and corporate actors imperative. At the core of the blue economy framework stands the incorporation of ocean values and services into economic modeling and governance. Sustainable fisheries and aquaculture are ...
  • Storylines in public news media about mathematics education and minoritized students 

    Andersson, Annica; Ryan, Ulrika; Herbel-Eisenmann, Beth; Huru, Hilja Lisa; Wagner, David Richard (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-07-02)
    Public media both refects and shapes societal perceptions and attitudes. Teachers and others around students in mathematics classrooms have expectations for the students, projected with what appears in these media. We are most concerned about the expectations placed on students who are identifed with minoritized groups—particularly students who are Indigenous or migrated to Norway. We investigate ...

  • Active and passive transductions - Definitions and implications for learning 

    Svensson, Kim; Campos, Esmeralda; Eriksson, Urban (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-02-21)
    To move between different semiotic systems, such as graphs and formulas, is a necessary step in learning physics or solving problems. In social semiotics, this movement of semiotic material is called a transduction and during a transduction a student must unpack, filter, and highlight different aspects of the concept or problem. Unpacking, filtering, and highlighting have been shown to be important ...
  • Across time and space: Examiner and candidate experiences of online doctoral vivas 

    Wisker, Gina; Highman, Ludovic; Spronken-Smith, Rachel; Waghorne, Joseph (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-01-11)
    Many countries have doctoral viva examinations, mostly conducted in-person until the COVID-19 pandemic. This article explores the changing processes and experiences of doctoral vivas forced online, from the perspectives of three examiners (two Uk, one NZ) and one recent candidate (UK). It sheds light on remote viva examinations exploring experiences of examination rigour, opportunities to evidence ...

    Laloyaux, Julien; Hirnstein, Marco; Specht, Karsten; Giersch, Anne; Larøi, Frank (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-02-04)
    Introduction - Individuals experiencing auditory hallucinations (AH) tend to perceive voices when exposed to random noise. However, the factors driving this tendency remain unclear. The present study examined the interaction of a top-down (expectations) and bottom-up (type of noise) process to better understand the mechanisms that underlie AH.<p> <p>Methods - Fifty-two healthy individuals (29 ...
  • Sámi Traditional Knowledge of Reindeer Meat Smoking 

    Krarup Hansen, Kia; Sara, Ravdna Biret Marja Eira; Smuk, Inger Anita; Brattland, Camilla (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-07-25)
    Reindeer meat, traditional food and knowledge are vital for the culture, health, and economy of Sámi reindeer herders. Nevertheless, the practices of reindeer meat smoking have barely been part of scientific research or reindeer herding management. We investigated Sámi reindeer herders’ approach to meat smoking in Northern Norway performed in the traditional Sámi tent, the lávvu. The investigation ...
  • Synthesis of substituted (N,C) and (N,C,C) Au(iii) complexes: the influence of sterics and electronics on cyclometalation reactions 

    Hylland, Knut Tormodssønn; Schmidtke, Inga; Wragg, David Stephen; Nova, Ainara; Tilset, Mats (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-03-04)
    Cyclometalated Au(III) complexes are of interest due to their catalytic, medicinal, and photophysical properties. Herein, we describe the synthesis of derivatives of the type (N,C)Au(OAcF)2 (OAcF = trifluoroacetate) and (N,C,C)AuOAcF by a cyclometalation route, where (N,C) and (N,C,C) are chelating 2-arylpyridine ligands. The scope of the synthesis is explored by substituting the 2-arylpyridine core ...
