Satellite detection of natural films on the ocean surface
(American Geophysical Union, 1996-11-01)
Natural films on the ocean surface influence air-sea fluxes of momentum, heat, and gas. It is therefore essential to be able to map the geographical extent and variability of such films to determine the resulting impact ...
Sea ice velocity in the Fram Strait monitored by moored instruments
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-10-04)
The Fram Strait sea ice velocity was measured by means of a new method using moored Doppler Current Meters in the period 1996–2000. Almost 3 years of ice velocity observations near 79N 5W are analyzed. The average ...
On effect of wave breaking on short wind waves
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-10)
The paper presents an attempt to estimate short wave generation by wave breaking. A breaking wave crest disturbs the surface and generates sub-surface turbulence. The locally disturbed area further disperses and feeds short ...
Towards a more saline North Atlantic and a fresher Arctic under global warming
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-11-14)
Most atmosphere-ocean general circulation models (GCMs) forced with increasing greenhouse gas concentrations predict enhanced atmospheric moisture transports to the high northern latitudes. Together with melting of ...
Recent and future changes of the Arctic sea-ice cover
(American Geophysical Union, 2008)
The present and future state of the Arctic sea ice cover is explored using new observations and a coupled one dimensional air–sea–ice model. Updated satellite observations of Fram Strait ice-area export show an increase ...
Ocean release of fossil fuel CO2: A case study
(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 ...
