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 ...
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 ...
Variability at Ocean Weather Station M in the Norwegian Sea
(International Council for the Exploration of the Sea, 2003)
Time series of temperature and salinity from Ocean Weather Station M are analysed for periodic cycles of interannual to decadal scale. Time evolutions of the spectra show various spectral peaks at all depths, but none of ...

Earth science – oceanography
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2002)
Satellite oceanography began with the Gemini XII flight in November 1966. From a Hasselblad camera mounted in the pilot’s window large internal waves in the eastern tropical Atlantic were photographed via sunglitter for ...
Annual cycles of sea level and sea surface temperature in the western Mediterranean Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-03-01)
In the western Mediterranean Sea, sea level variations are the result of seasonal steric effect, atmospheric forcing and mesoscale circulation activity, particularly in the Alboran and Algerian basins, as well as water ...
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 ...
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 ...
