All elements in the Universe, except for the lightest ones, are made in stars.
But the heavier elements, like gold, lead and uranium, are not. How are they made?
Long-term effects of local scale OIL pollution on fish Populations and COMmunities in the Lofoten-Barents Sea system
Modern science usually provides both lots of data and very complicated models for the part of reality it is trying to describe. Sometimes there is even so much data, and the models are so complicated, that it becomes difficult to make full use of the data in deciding between models, or finding their properties. The main goal of the GAMBIT project is to write a software tool to help physicists do just that.
The SolarALMA project is funded with a Consolidator Grant by the European Research Council (ERC) and runs from September 2016 to August 2021. The aim is to utilize the first observations of the Sun with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), which promises significant steps towards understanding the outer layers of the solar atmosphere with possible contributions to solving the coronal heating problem.
Managing ecosystems in an increasingly variable world
The LIPCHEM group combines synthetic organic chemistry, medicinal chemistry and total organic synthesis to study the chemistry and biology of lipids. We have prepared polyunsaturated fatty acids, oxygenated fatty acids and specialized pro-resolving lipid mediators that have been subjected to biological investigations. In addition, we have contributed to the development of new methodology within synthetic organic chemistry, and the identification of new lead compounds in medicinal chemistry projects targeting diseases such as cancer and type-2 diabetes. These life science oriented projects are conducts in collaboration with groups both abroad and in Norway (see below).
The ClimFun project, funded by the Research Council of Norway, will increase our understanding about how fungi respond to global change.
Green Growth based on Marine Resources: Ecological and Socio-Economic Constraints
Creating a sustainable basis for aquaculture and fisheries management of Atlantic salmon and cod by studying the genetic basis
Instabilities and turbulence in the polar ionosphere studied with the integrated, multi-scale 4D (3D in space and time) experimental, theoretical, and modelling approach.
The ambition of this project is to set the scene for a number of new research directions based on FEEC by giving ground-breaking contributions to its foundation. The aim is also to use FEEC as a tool, or a guideline, to extend the foundation of numerical PDE to a variety of problems for which this foundation does not exist.
