Resolvent bounds for jump generators
(Journal article; Peer reviewed; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2016-12-02)
The paper deals with jump generators with a convolution kernel. Assuming that the kernel decays either exponentially or polynomially, we prove a number of lower and upper bounds for the resolvent of such operators. In particular we focus on sharp estimates of the resolvent kernel for small values of the spectral parameter. We consider two applications of these results. First we obtain pointwise ...
Review of marine icing and anti-/de-icing systems
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-08-17)
The aim of this work is to review the phenomenon of icing in marine operations. The focus is on two main sources of icing, namely atmospheric and sea spray. The literature reveals that sea spray icing is the main contributor to marine icing. This work discusses the available ice accretion prediction models on ships and offshore structures. It also reviews the anti-/de-icing technologies that can be ...
Measuring Thickness of Marine Ice Using IR Thermography
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-04)
<p>There are several challenges to operating in a cold climate. Marine icing is one of them, and its mitigation is vital for marine operations.</p> <p>The presented work is a laboratory-scale setup to measure marine ice thickness. The developed methodology can be applied towards de-/anti-icing setups. The method described is based on measuring the average surface temperatures of the marine ice. ...
Playing a video game is more than mere procrastination
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-13)
<i>Background</i>: Procrastination is seen as a severe problem among young people, and many factors have been claimed to be associated with it, playing video games being one of them. One of the reasons why video games might be related to procrastination is their ability to offer instant gratification and feedback, while at the same time offer distractions from less tempting and rewarding tasks. ...
Effect of seasonal mesoscale and microscale meteorological conditions in Ny-Ålesund on results of monitoring of long-range transported pollution
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-06)
Ny-Ålesund is an international research settlement where the thermodynamics and chemical composition of the air are monitored. The present work investigates the effects of micrometeorological conditions, mesoscale dynamics and local air pollution on the data collected at two different locations around the village. Daily filter measurements of sulphur dioxide and non-sea salt sulphate from the temporary ...
Influence of local and regional air pollution on atmospheric measurements in Ny-Ålesund
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016)
The Zeppelin observatory is a research station near the village Ny-Ålesund in Svalbard. The facility delivers data to international projects devoted to high data quality monitoring of the background air pollution in the Arctic. An approach for quantifying the influence of local and regional pollution on measurements that may be misinterpreted as long-range transported one, is presented here. The ...
