    • Klimaaftryk af overdiagnostik 

      Jønsson, Alexandra Brandt Ryborg; Brodersen, John (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-11-13)
      Det antages, at sundhedssektoren står for 4-5% af udledningen af drivhusgasser på verdensplan [1]. En del af klimaaftrykket kan mindskes politisk ved at gøre elektricitet og andre forsyninger mere bæredygtige. Ligeledes kan der med god og billig offentlig transport og høje benzin- og parkeringsafgifter mindskes, at ansatte, patienter og pårørende tager bilen. Organisatorisk kan vi f.eks. mindske ...
    • Neural networks to retrieve in water constituents applied to radiative transfer models simulating coastal water conditions 

      Hadjal, Madjid; Paterson, Ross; McKee, David (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-02-16)
      Estimation of chlorophyll (CHL) using ocean colour remote sensing (OCRS) signals in coastal waters is difficult due to the presence of two other constituents altering the light signal: coloured dissolved organic material (CDOM) and mineral suspended sediments (MSS). Artificial neural networks (NNs) have the capacity to deal with signal complexity and are a potential solution to the problem. Here ...
    • Arctic Pedagogy 

      Waterman-Evans, Louis (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-19)
      The concept of an ‘Arctic Pedagogy’ is enticing. Arctic branding sells: for example, UiT is not just the ‘University of Tromsø’ but also the ‘The Arctic University of Norway’. Moreover, research in Scotland as part of the ‘New Northern Pedagogies Project’ is now investigating “how the principles of Arctic Pedagogy can support teacher education provision across Scotland”. Such conversations invite ...

      Chekin, Leonid S. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-10-05)
      President Jimmy Carter’s visit to Poland (29–31 December 1977) was the first stop on a nine-day long foreign trip that also took Carter to Iran, India, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, France, and Belgium. This was Carter’s first and only presidential visit to a nation in the Soviet bloc and his first personal encounter with a leader of a Communist government. His host, Edward Gierek, first secretary of the ...

      Arbabi, Mohammad Salar; Da Conceiçao, Arlindo Flavio; Garrett, Thiago; Nygård, Jan Franz; Vitenberg, Roman (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-09-06)
      Medical research often requires access to sensitive personal health data. According to GDPR, such access is only possible under certain legal bases, such as consent. Verifiable and secure management of health data access is thus essential for promoting public trust in organizations that manage sensitive health data, for ensuring legal compliance, as well as for motivating patients to participate in ...
    • Kan urfolkskunnskap og kolonialiseringsbevissthet bidra til det grønne skiftet? 

      Henriksen, Jan-Erik; Larsen, Tone (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
      Samene har i lang tid bebodd og hatt tilknytning til det karrige arktiske landskapet. Kan disse erfaringene være et bidrag i bærekraftig utvikling og det grønne skiftet? I dette kapitlet tar vi utgangspunkt i det tradisjonelle samiske begrepet «birget» som kan oversettes til det «å klare seg selv». Birget handler om å livberge seg med det naturen byr på. Ikke nytte mer enn man trenger, og å klare ...

      Waldahl, Ragnhild Holmen; Skogøy, Bjørg Eva (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2024)
      Pilot for programfinansiering har gitt kommunene et økonomisk handlingsrom og initiativ til å utvikle helhetlige tjenester til utsatte barn og unge og deres familier. I flere av kommunene har det skjedd en betydelig kulturendring. Ledelsen og ansatte på tvers av tjenestene snakker ikke bare om viktigheten av tverrfaglig samarbeid, de har også begynt å endre praksis. Dette betyr at kommunene tilbyr ...
    • Evolution of H<inf>2</inf>O content in deforming quartz aggregates: An experimental study 

      Stunitz, Holger; Raimbourg, H.; Nègre, L.; Précigout, J.; Jollands, M.; Pongrac, P.; Jeřabek, P.; Gies, N.; Lüder, M. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-10)
      Deformation experiments were carried out on pure quartzite samples (>99% quartz) with a grain size of ∼200 μm from Tana, Northern Norway. Deformation conditions were 900 °C, 0.1 wt% H2O added, strain rate ∼1 × 10<sup>−6</sup> s<sup>−1</sup> at variable confining pressures from 600 to 2000 MPa. Detailed FTIR measurements of H<sub>2</sub>O indicate that the H<sub>2</sub>O content in the grain boundary ...
    • Automated calibration for stability selection in penalised regression and graphical models: a multi-OMICs network application exploring the molecular response to tobacco smoking 

      Bodinier, Barbara; Filippi, Sarah; Nøst, Therese Haugdahl; Chiquet, Julien; Chadeau-Hyam, Marc (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-07-13)
      Stability selection represents an attractive approach to identify sparse sets of features jointly associated with an outcome in high-dimensional contexts. We introduce an automated calibration procedure via maximisation of an in-house stability score and accommodating a priori-known block structure (e.g. multi-OMIC) data. It applies to [Least Absolute Shrinkage Selection Operator (LASSO)] penalised ...
    • Cohort Profile Update: The Young-HUNT Study, Norway 

      Rangul, Vegar; Holmen, Turid Lingaas; Langhammer, Arnulf; Ingul, Jo Magne; Pape, Kristine; Fenstad, Jørn Søberg; Kvaløy, Kirsti (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-01)
    • The importance of features and exponents: Dissolving Feature Reassembly 

      Lohndal, Terje; Putnam, Michael T. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-01)
      Formal approaches tobi-and multilingual grammars rely on two important claims: (i)the grammatical architecture should be able to deal withmonoandbi-/multilingual data without any specific constraints for the latter, (ii)features play a pivotal role in accounting for patterns across and within grammars. In the present paper, it is argued that an exoskeletal approach to grammar, which clearly distinguishes ...
    • Modeling multilingual grammars: Constraints and predictions 

      Lohndal, Terje; Putnam, Michael T. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-01)
      We are grateful for the many thoughtful responses to our epistemological paper, ‘The importance of features and exponents: Dissolving Feature Reassembly’ (henceforth, L&P). It is impossible to do justice to all of the points that have been raised in this response; rather, we will focus on three main points which hopefully will address the most important comments and concerns that have been raised.
    • Ingrained city rhythms: flexible activity timing but more persistent circadian pace in urban birds 

      Mizumo Tomotani, Barbara; Timpen, Fabian; Spoelstra, Kamiel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-05-17)
      Urbanization dramatically increases the amount of light at night, which may disrupt avian circadian organization. We measured activity patterns of great tits breeding in the city and forest, and subsequently measured two clock properties of these birds under controlled conditions: tau (endogenous circadian clock speed) and after-effects (history dependency of the clock relative to previous conditions). ...

      Background: The aim of this study was to train and assess firefighters’ skill attainment in the use of tourniquets, and to assess their skill retention after 3 mo. The purpose is to show if firefighters can successfully apply a tourniquet after a short course based on the Norwegian national recommendation for civil prehospital tourniquet use.<p> <p>Methods: This is a prospective experimental ...
    • Ultrafast Polarization Switching in BaTiO<inf>3</inf> Nanomaterials: Combined Density Functional Theory and Coupled Oscillator Study 

      Zhilyaev, Petr; Brekhov, Kirill; Mishina, Elena; Tantardini, Christian (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-01-17)
      The challenge of achieving ultrafast switching of electric polarization in ferroelectric materials remains unsolved as there is no experimental evidence of such switching to date. In this study, we developed an enhanced model that describes switching within a two-dimensional space of generalized coordinates at THz pulses. Our findings indicate that stable switching in barium titanate cannot be ...
    • Fly me to the moon! - skapende, utfordrende og estetisk læring 

      Gjærum, Rikke Gürgens; Edvardsen, Nanna Kathrine; Evensen, Iselin (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-07-04)
      Se for deg et klasserom. Firkantet. Med pulter og stoler. Lukten av viskelær, våte strømpebukser og tørre vegger. Se for deg læreren entre rommet. Hun tar et dypt åndedrag. Ser utover det tomme landskapet. Setter fra seg den overfylte bagen. Læreren tar seg til ansiktet, fjerner den litt for lange panneluggen, drikker en slurk kaffe og ser mot døren. Klokken ringer. Hun tar noen skritt mot døren før ...
    • Conspiracy Theory, Altered States, and Alternative Community: Conspiracy Beliefs in a Sample of Nordic Yoga-Practitioners 

      Dyrendal, Asbjørn; Tøllefsen, Inga Bårdsen (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
      Belief in hidden, intentional agency behind events is fundamentally human. However, the cultural discourses on ‘conspiracy theory’, which has relegated such beliefs to the category of stigmatised knowledge claims of the extreme margins, can mask the ubiquity of such beliefs. Egalitarian, alternative religion therefore has seemed to some a surprising location for conspiracy beliefs. Egil Asprem and ...
    • The influence of an internship in South Africa on Norwegian preservice mathematics teachers' development of a professional identity 

      Andresen, Mette Susanne; Søndergaard, Bettina Dahl (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
      This paper reflects on how the future development of teacher identity by four Norwegian preservice secondary mathematics teachers may be influenced by a nine-week internship in South Africa. It was clear from interviews with the students, completed during their internship, that they were aware of differences in the educational- and school culture regarding, amongst others, teacher authority, students’ ...
