Direct ocean surface velocity measurements from space: Improved quantitative interpretation of Envisat ASAR observations
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-11-29)
Previous analysis of Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) signals collected by ESA’s Envisat has demonstrated a very valuable source of high-resolution information, namely, the line-of-sight velocity of the moving ...
Diagnosing ocean tracer transport from Sellafield and Dounreay by equivalent diffusion and age
(Science Press, 2008-09-27)
A simple approach for estimating the equivalent diffusion for diagnosing tracer transport is proposed. Two different expressions are derived; one is based directly on an analytical solution of the two-dimensional ...
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 ...
High northern latitude surface air temperature: comparison of existing data and creation of a new gridded data set 1900–2000
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008-03)
Detection, attribution and understanding of temperature changes in the high northern latitudes depend on constraining uncertainties and resolving apparent discrepancies in observational data sets. We quantitatively compare ...
