Circulation and transformation of Atlantic and Arctic water masses in climate models
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-09)
Ocean heat transport and associated heat loss to the atmosphere contributes significantly to the anomalously mild climate of northwestern Europe and its variability. In this thesis, the circulation and transformation of ...
Changes in the properties and distribution of the intermediate and deep waters in the Fram Strait
The Fram Strait is the only deep connection between the Arctic Ocean and the Nordic Seas (Greenland, Iceland, and Norwegian Seas), with a sill depth of approximately 2600 m. Consequently, observations from this area ...
Arctic/Atlantic exchanges via the Subpolar Gyre
(American Meteorological Society, 2012)
In the present study we investigate the decadal variability in the strength and shape of the Subpolar Gyre (SPG) in a 600-year pre-industrial simulation using the Bergen Climate Model. The atmospheric influence on the ...
Water mass transformation and the North Atlantic Current in three multi-century climate model simulations
(American Geophysical Union, 2012-11)
The warm and saline Subtropical Water carried by the North Atlantic Current undergoes substantial transformation on its way to higher latitudes as heat is released from ocean to atmosphere. The geographical distribution ...
