Indian Ocean: Validation of the Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model and ENSO events during 1958–1998
(American Geophysical Union, 2002-05-25)
In the Indian Ocean, in situ data are sparse both in time and space. Therefore, numerical models are one of the major tools for further understanding of the ocean circulation. We have implemented, validated, and done a 40 ...
Convective chimneys and plumes in the Northern Greenland Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2005)
In the Boreas Basin in the northern Greenland Sea, convection has been observed to be localized as narrow structures - chimneys - in which the water masses may be homogeneous from the surface through great depths. An ...
An ERS 1 synthetic aperture radar image of atmospheric lee waves
(American Geophysical Union, 1994-11-15)
An ERS 1 synthetic aperture radar (SAR) image of the island Hopen shows a distinct 7.6-km wavelength wave phenomenon near the island. This wave phenomenon is interpreted as the surface imprint on open water of atmospheric ...
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 ...
Resistance and heat-transfer laws for stable and neutral planetary boundary layers: old theory advanced and re-evaluated
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2005-07)
The planetary boundary layer (PBL) resistance and heat-transfer laws express the surface fluxes of momentum and heat through the PBL governing parameters. Since the late sixties, the dimensionless coefficients (A, B and ...
Variations of Mixed Layer Depth and Water Properties in the Norwegian Sea for the period 1949-1999
The mixed layer of the ocean and the processes therein affect the ocean’s biological production, the exchanges with the atmosphere, and the water modification processes important in a climate change per- spective. To ...
The Influence of large convective eddies on the surface-layer turbulence
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2006-06)
Close to the surface large coherent eddies consisting of plumes and downdraughts cause convergent winds blowing towards the plume axes, which in turn cause wind shears and generation of turbulence. This mechanism strongly ...
Modeling the middle Pliocene climate with a global atmospheric general circulation model
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-27)
A new climate simulation for the middle Pliocene (ca. 3 Ma BP) is performed by a global grid-point atmospheric general circulation model developed at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP AGCM) with boundary conditions ...
Cover ERS-1/2 SAR monitoring of dangerous ice phenomena along the western part of Northern Sea Route
(Taylor & Francis, 1997-08-01)
Arctic/Atlantic exchanges via the Subpolar Gyre
(American Meteorological Society, 2012)
In the present study we investigate the decadal variability in the strength and shape of the Subpolar Gyre (SPG) in a 600-year pre-industrial simulation using the Bergen Climate Model. The atmospheric influence on the ...
