Cover ERS-1/2 SAR monitoring of dangerous ice phenomena along the western part of Northern Sea Route
(Taylor & Francis, 1997-08-01)
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 ...
Barents Sea seasonal ice zone features and processes from ERS 1 synthetic aperture radar: Seasonal Ice Zone Experiment 1992
(American Geophysical Union, 1999-07-15)
Sea ice features and processes in the Barents Sea were studied during the Seasonal Ice Zone Experiment 1992 (SIZEX92), a dedicated ERS 1 satellite synthetic aperture radar (SAR) field campaign carried out in March 1992. ...
Sensitivity of remote sensing – derived phytoplankton productivity to mixed layer depth: Lessons from the carbon-based productivity model
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-10-01)
Mixed layer depth (MLD) has long been recognized as having an important influence on underwater light budget and, thus, net primary productivity (NPP) of phytoplankton. The depth- and wavelength-integrated carbon-based ...
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 ...
Spring-summer temperature reconstruction in western Norway 1734-2003: a data-synthesis approach
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2003-12-16)
A series of spring–summer (April–August) temperatures was reconstructed for the period 1734–1923 for western Norway based on multi-proxy data. For the period 1734–1842 the long-term variations were based on terminal ...
Arctic climate change: observed and modelled temperature and sea-ice variability
(Blackwell Munksgaard, 2004-07-09)
Changes apparent in the arctic climate system in recent years require evaluation in a century-scale perspective in order to assess the Arctic's response to increasing anthropogenic greenhouse-gas forcing. Here, a new set ...
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 ...
