Parts of this investigation were financed by the Research Council of Norway (NFR) during the author’s Ph.D. studies at the University of Oslo (Grant 145568/432). Funding has also been provided by T. Mohn (through a private donation to the Mohn–Sverdrup Center) and, under the Aurora Mobility Program, by NFR/The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Drs. J. E. Weber, A. Jenkins, T. Eldevik, A. Samuelsen, Ø. Sætra, M. Bentsen, J. Johannessen, and L. Bertino are acknowledged for their advices. The anonymous reviewers are greatly acknowledged for their suggestions, which not only have improved the manuscript, but also have brought this investigation forward.
