    • Observations of the Storfjorden overflow 

      Fer, Ilker; Skogseth, Ragnheid; Haugan, Peter Mosby (Elsevier, 2003)
      The mixing and spreading of the Storfjorden overflow were investigated with density and horizontal velocity profiles collected at closely spaced stations. The dense bottom water generated by strong winter cooling, enhanced ...

    • Observing the Ocean from Space: Emerging Capabilities in Europe 

      Johannessen, Johnny A.; Le Provost, Christian; Drange, Helge; Srokosz, Meric; Woodworth, Philip; Sclüssel, Peter; Le Grand, Pascal; Kerr, Yann; Wingham, Duncan; Rebhan, Helge (GODAE Project Office and Bureau of Meteorology, Melbourne, 2001-12)
      During the first decade of the 21st century Earth observation from satellites will be faced with two major demands: provision of continuity missions and launch of new exploratory missions. This paper addresses European ...
    • Ocean data assimilation systems for GODAE 

      Cummings, James; Bertino, Laurent; Brasseur, Pierre; Fukumori, Ichiro; Kamachi, Masafumi; Martin, Matthew J.; Mogensen, Kristian; Oke, Peter; Testut, Charles Emmanuel; Verron, Jaques; Weaver, Anthony (The Oceanography Society, 2009-09)
      Ocean data assimilation has matured to the point that observations are now routinely combined with model forecasts to produce a variety of ocean products. Approaches to ocean data assimilation vary widely both in terms ...

    • Ocean release of fossil fuel CO2: A case study 

      Drange, Helge; Alendal, Guttorm; Johannessen, Ola M. (American Geophysical Union, 2001-07-01)
      The natural ocean uptake of the greenhouse gas CO2 can be accelerated by collecting and liquefying the gas from point sources, and by pumping it into the ocean at appropriate locations and at sufficient depths. Results ...
