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 ...
Heat and Mass Transfer Laws for Turbulent Convective Flows in the Atmosphere over Leads in Ice Covered Oceans, C32A-1123, American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, 5-9 December, San-Francisco, USA
(Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center, 2005)
Patches of open water (cracks, leads and polynias, Figure 1) in theice cover give major contributions to turbulent exchanges of heat, moisture, CO2 and other gases between the atmosphere and Polar oceans. Here, convective ...
Observing the Ocean from Space: Emerging Capabilities in Europe
(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 ...
An intercomparison of large-eddy simulations of the stable boundary layer
(Springer Science (former Kluwer Academic Publishers), 2005)
Results are presented from the first intercomparison of Large-eddy simulation (LES) models for the stable boundary layer (SBL), as part of the GABLS (Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment Atmospheric Boundary Layer ...
Cover ERS-1/2 SAR monitoring of dangerous ice phenomena along the western part of Northern Sea Route
(Taylor & Francis, 1997-08-01)
Aspects on interactions between mid- to high latitude atmospheric circulation and some surface processes
(The University of Bergen, 2006-06-08)
The Arctic is a hot topic in Climate Research. A large number of signs of a warming Arctic Climate have been identified the latest years. This is of major concern in light of the increasing atmospheric content of greenhouse ...

Nile Issues: Small Streams from the Nile Basin Research Programme
(Fountain Publishers, 2010)
This popular book presents some of the results from the Nile Basin Research Programme. The Nile Basin region faces huge challenges in the future. The ways the Nile issues are solved will have enduring consequences for the ...
Heat in the Barents Sea: Transport, storage, and surface fluxes
(Copernicus Publications, 2010-01-11)
A column model is set up for the Barents Sea to explore sensitivity of surface fluxes and heat storage from varying ocean heat transport. Mean monthly ocean transport and atmospheric forcing are synthesised and force the ...
Data assimilation for coastal zone monitoring and forecasting
(Elsevier Science, 1997)
