Bistand til nasjonalt pasientsikkerhetsprogram

Norsk Regnesentral bistår Helsedirektoratet med statistisk analyse og sammenstilling av data i forbindelse med pasientsikkerhetsprogrammets arbeid med kartlegging av pasientskader og pasientsikkerhetskulturundersøkelser.

Black Carbon

Over the last years the importance of black carbon (small soot particles) for the climate system has been increasingly recognized. In the last IPCC report the black carbon impact of the Arctic was recognized as an independent and recognizable contribution to global warming. Black carbon, originating from incomplete burning of organic material or fossil fuel and transported as aerosols by the global air currents, is probably the second most important contribution to global warming in the Arctic.

Can salt (MgCl2) reduce air pollution from car traffic?

Car trafficCar traffic is the main source for local air pollution in urban areas. In addition to the direct pollution from the exhaust gas (such as NOx and CO), cars also whirl up dust from the roads into the air, yielding high concentrations of small (PM2,5) and large (PM10) particles.

CRAVA - Elastic Inversion of Seismic Amplitudes

NR has developed elastic inversion software called CRAVA in collaboration with Statoil. CRAVA is an acronym for "Conditioning Reservoir variables to Amplitude Versus Angle data." CRAVA calculates elastic properties such as density, P- and, S-velocity from seismic amplitude cubes. Input data are amplitude cubes stacked at different angles and corresponding wavelets. Output are cubes of inverted elastic properties.

CREDO – Modeling and analysis of evolutionary structures for distributed services

The objective of the CREDO project is to develop an integrated suite of tools for compositional modeling, testing, and validation of software, aimed at evolving networks of dynamically reconfigurable components. The project will develop a new high-level modelling language Creol, and integrate a formal component model based on concurrent objects. CREDO supports rapid prototyping and automated validation of networks of distributed services implemented by components, focusing on analyzing the effect of dynamic reconfiguration.

CryoClim

Monitoring Climate Change in the Cryosphere

Air temperature measurements show a clear trend of global climate warming during the last decades. The Arctic temperature has increased at almost twice the rate compared to that of the rest of the world over the same period. It has been internationally agreed that climate monitoring is urgently needed in order to quantify and better understand the climatic changes taking place.

CultSearcher

This project develops semi-automatic methods for detecting and mapping some kinds of cultural heritage in Norway.

Oppland County now uses a method from this project for the mapping of ancient deer hunting systems and iron extraction sites.


This ancient deer hunting system, located in Nord-Fron municipality, consists of a number of pitfall traps located in a deer trekking route.

Cultural heritage

The increasingly intensive use and modification of the landscape as a result of modern demands for efficient infrastructure and land use (agricultural production, mining, energy sources, leisure/tourism facilities) exerts growing pressure on areas and sites associated with our cultural heritage. The use of modern support technologies is imperative if such rapid changes are to be balanced against the sustainable management of this resource.
