Large-Scale Atmospheric Circulation Variability and its Impacts on the Nordic Seas Ocean Climate - a Review. In: The Nordic Seas: An Integrated Perspective
(American Geophysical Union, 2005)
The large-scale atmospheric circulation and its impacts on the Nordic Seas ocean climate are reviewed. The dominant factors for the atmospheric variability are the Icelandic low and the Azores high, determining the strength ...
Sea Ice Monitoring by Remote Sensing
(The American Society for Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing, 2006)
Open Boundary Conditions for the Extended Kalman Filter With a Quasi-Geostrophic Ocean Model
(American Geophysical Union, 1993-05-18)
The formulation of consistent boundary conditions for the quasi-geostrophic (QG) model with an extended Kaiman filter in a data assimilation scheme is discussed. To form a well-posed boundary value problem for the QG model, ...
Future climate change: Modeling and scenarios for the Arctic
Evaluating Global Ocean Carbon Models: The Importance of Realistic Physics
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-09-15)
A suite of standard ocean hydrographic and circulation metrics are applied to the equilibrium physical solutions from 13 global carbon models participating in phase 2 of the Ocean Carbon-cycle Model Intercomparison Project ...
Evaluation of ocean carbon cycle models with data-based metrics
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-04-02)
New radiocarbon and chlorofluorocarbon-11 data from the World Ocean Circulation Experiment are used to assess a suite of 19 ocean carbon cycle models. We use the distributions and inventories of these tracers as quantitative ...
Using the Extended Kalman Filter with a Multilayer Quasi-Geostrophic Ocean Model
(American Geophysical Union, 1992-11-15)
The formulation of the extended Kalman filter for a multilayer nonlinear quasi-geostrophic ocean circulation model is discussed. The nonlinearity in the ocean model leads to an approximative equation for error covariance ...
Cover ERS-1/2 SAR monitoring of dangerous ice phenomena along the western part of Northern Sea Route
(Taylor & Francis, 1997-08-01)
Earth science – oceanography
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2002)
Satellite oceanography began with the Gemini XII flight in November 1966. From a Hasselblad camera mounted in the pilot’s window large internal waves in the eastern tropical Atlantic were photographed via sunglitter for ...
Annual cycles of sea level and sea surface temperature in the western Mediterranean Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-03-01)
In the western Mediterranean Sea, sea level variations are the result of seasonal steric effect, atmospheric forcing and mesoscale circulation activity, particularly in the Alboran and Algerian basins, as well as water ...
