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 ...
Influence of Capillary Pressure on Estimation of Relative Permeability for Immiscible WAG Processes
(The University of Bergen, 2008-04-30)
Capillary pressure is one of the important parameters when describing flow in porous media. This parameter is nevertheless in some cases neglected, especially if no reliable measured data is available. The purpose of ...
A Possible Feedback Mechanism Involving the Arctic Freshwater, the Arctic Sea Ice, and the North Atlantic Drift
(Science Press, 2004-03-15)
Model studies point to enhanced warming and to increased freshwater fluxes to high northern latitudes in response to global warming. In order to address possible feedbacks in the ice-ocean system in response to such ...
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 ...
Arctic sea ice and climate change - will the sea ice disappear in this century?
(Blackwell Scientific Publications, 2000)
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 ...
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 ...
Letter: In Response: Re: Hägg O, Fritzell P. Letter. Spine 2003; 29: 1160–1.

Last Glacial Maximum over China: Sensitivities of climate to paleovegetation and Tibetan ice sheet
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-02-06)
With the boundary conditions appropriate for the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), including ice sheets, sea surface temperatures, sea-ice distribution, atmospheric CO2 concentration, the Earth’s orbital parameters, topography, ...
Pleistocene vertical carbon isotope and carbonate gradients in the South Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean
(American Geophysical Union and the Geochemical Society, 2003-01-10)
We demonstrate that the carbon isotopic signal of mid-depth waters evolved differently from deep waters in the South Atlantic sector of the Southern Ocean during the Pleistocene. Deep sites (>3700 m) exhibit large ...
