Multiple Environmental Stressors: Biological Interactions Between Parameters of Climate Change and Perfluorinated Alkyl Substances in Fish
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2016:100, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
Aquatic organisms continuously acclimatize to fluctuations in environment parameters and contaminant insult. The aim of this thesis was to investigate effects of combined exposure to quantifiable measures of climate ...
(Scanning) Transmission Electron Microscopy Studies of Grain Boundary Segregation relevant to Intergranular Corrosion in Al-Mg-Si-Cu Alloys
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:23, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
The effect of the alloy composition on the susceptibility to intergranular corrosion in Al-Mg-Si-Cu alloys has been investigated by Transmission Electron Microscopy. The main focus of this thesis has been the effect of ...
Testing Behavioral Ecology Models with Historical Individual-Based Human Demographic Data from Norway
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:13, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
Behavior varies widely among animals, both within and between species. An evolutionary perspective may help us understand the origin of this diversity. Behavioral ecology models seek to explain much of variation in ...
Quantifying the influence of the stratosphere on the mesosphere and lower thermasphere
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:22, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
In this thesis, the influence of the major modes of stratospheric variability - the seasonal cycle and sudden stratospheric warmings (SSWs) in the extratropics, and the quasi-biennial oscillation (QBO) in the equatorial ...
Phase transitions in low dimensional systems via spontaneous symmetry breaking and topology
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:271, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
In nature there exists a fundamental distinction among particles regarding their statistics. Let us consider an isolated systems of two particles: two bosons are allowed to stay in the same physical state while two fermions ...
Magnetization dynamics in nanostructures
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2016:360, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
Summary of thesis: Understanding the properties of magnetic structures when confined to nanoscale dimensions is of both fundamental interest, as well as of importance for the development of modern electronics technology. ...
Understanding crystallization in alginate-calcium phosphate composites
(Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:18, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
Summary of thesis: Tissue engineering seeks to mimic the properties and functionalities of biological tissue. In the context of bone repair, tissue engineering is becoming an increasingly important science in the active ...
Approximate analysis concerning wave-power absorption by hydrodynamically interacting buoys
(Doktor ingeniøravhandling (Trondheim);234, Doctoral thesis, 1982)
Intercalation Phenomena of Carbon Dioxide, Water or Ions in Smectite Clay
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2015:319, Doctoral thesis, 2015)
Smectites, or swelling clays, are layered porous materials based on two-dimensional stacks of inorganic layers. The non-equivalent substitutions of atoms generate a negative charge on each layer surface which is balanced ...
Elements and Oxidative Stress Variables in Atlantic and Arctic Pelagic Food Chains Calanus, little auks (Alle alle) and black-legged kittiwakes (Rissa tridactyla)
(Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2014:296, Doctoral thesis, 2014)
