Remote sensing of sea ice
Formulation of the planetary boundary layer feedback in the Earth´s climate system
(Institute of Computational Technologies SB RAS, Novosibirsk, 2008)
Recent publications have revealed that the state-of-the-art climate models are probably not sensitive enough to observed changes in the surface air temperature. This fact calls for the search of feedback mechanisms making ...
Subpolar Gyre Index and the North Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation in a Coupled Climate Model
(Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, 2008-11-16)
The subpolar gyre index (SPG), derived from the analysis of sea surface height (SSH), is proposed to be a potential indicator for the North Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) based on observation as well ...
The sensitivity of the present day Atlantic meriodinal overturning circulation to freshwater forcing
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-09-09)
Mounting evidence indicates that the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) was strongly reduced during cold climate episodes in the past, possible due to freshwater influx from glacial melting. It is also ...
Intermediate water from the Greenland Sea in the Faroe Bank Channel : spreading of released sulphur hexafluoride
The Faroe Bank Channel is the deepest passage for dense water leaving the Nordic Seas into the North Atlantic. The contribution to this part of the Greenland-Scotland Overflow by intermediate water from the Greenland ...
Change and variation in a hyer-arid cultural landscape: A merhodological approach using remote sensing timeseries (Landsat MSS and TM, 1973-1996) from the Wadi vegetation of the eastern desert of Egypt
(The University of Bergen, 1999)
Nine wadi localities in a hyper-arid environment have been registered in the field and studied using earth observation data. Branch height, crown – and trunk – diameter, and indicators of land-use such as present traces ...
On the Nordic Seas’ role in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation
(The University of Bergen, 2007-06-27)
In the present climate, the North Atlantic thermohaline circulation (THC) plays a fundamental role in the global transport of heat at high latitudes. The response of the North Atlantic Ocean-Nordic Seas THC to surface ...
Dr. Stein Sandven of NERSC on Arctic Regional Ocean Observing Systems
(International Polar Foundation, 2008-10-17)
The North Atlantic Oscillation and greenhouse-gas forcing
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-02-17)
The results of 12 coupled climate models participating in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP2) are compared together with observational data in order to investigate: 1) How the current generation of climate ...
Surface Atmospheric Temperature as Indicator of Climate Change in the Arctic
(Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center, 2005-12)
Surface atmospheric temperature (SAT) is one of the most reliable atmospheric characteristics used to quantify climate change. Contrary to what has been always implicitly assumed, changes in the SAT have loose relations ...
