Intermediate water from the Greenland Sea in the Faroe Bank Channel : spreading of released sulphur hexafluoride
The Faroe Bank Channel is the deepest passage for dense water leaving the Nordic Seas into the North Atlantic. The contribution to this part of the Greenland-Scotland Overflow by intermediate water from the Greenland ...
Magnitude and Origin of the Anthropogenic CO2 Increase and the 13C Suess Effect in the Nordic Seas since 1981
This study evaluates the anthropogenic changes of CO2 (∆Cant) and δ13C (∆δ13Cant) in the Nordic seas, the northern limb of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, that took place between 1981 and 2002/03. The ...
The Atlantic Water flow along the Vøring Plateau: Detecting frontal structures in oceanic station time series
The topographic steering of the baroclinic western branch of the Norwegian Atlantic Current (NwAC) determines the extent of Atlantic Water and location of the Arctic Front in the Nordic Seas. In this paper the geographical ...
A brief history of climate – the northern seas from the Last Glacial Maximum to global warming
The understanding of climate and climate change is fundamentally concerned with two things: a well-defined and sufficiently complete climate record to be explained, for example of observed temperature, and a relevant ...
Inception of the Northern European Ice Sheet due to contrasting ocean and insolation forcing
About 115,000 years ago the last interglacial reached its terminus and nucleation of new ice sheet growth was initiated. Evidence from the northernmost Nordic Seas indicate that the inception of the last glacial was ...
