The Mediterranean is an area with extensive human activity. It represents important food resources and is at the same time used for cheap waste disposal. Lately, the environmental consciousness in the area has grown largely. Knowing that nature takes 90 years to exchange the entire water body, the ocean can be considered as an almost closed system.

Estimating catch-at-age of fish

School of fishIn order to set quotas for the catch of commercial fish species such as cod, complex population dynamics models have been developed. An essential input to these models is the age distribution of the fish caught every year. This is estimated from fish sampled from boats as they land their catch.


One of the greatest threats to human beings is climate change. Predictions indicate that our environmental conditions will change with increasing speed in the coming years with one of the most significant changes being a warming of the global climate. However, although there will be warming on the global scale there will be large regional variations in climate that will affect various parts of the world differently.


The overall goal of this research project is to improve both the security level and the security awareness when developing, installing, and using (open source) VoIP/PBX/multimedia solutions.

Extracting information from historical Norwegian census forms

This is part of a larger initiative to establish a historical population register for Norway.  Establishing such a database requires transcription of a large amount of historical records to be able to enter the information in the database. Where possible it is desirable to be able to automate parts of the transcription process for these documents. In this context NR has been working with image based methods to automate extraction of information from historical Norwegian census forms.

Facies modeling in channelized reservoirs - new object model

Modeling of geological facies is a vital task in the reservoir modeling process. Object-based facies models have a long and proven history of being able to represent geological information in a robust and consistent manner. Expert knowledge on depositional processes and their natrual variability can be incorporated by geometrical descriptions of the diffent facies. This is particularly important for hydrocarbon flow and communication within the reservoir, and are commonly a major source of uncertainty.
