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. ...
Measuring Ocean Salinity with ESA’s SMOS Mission – Advancing the Science
(European Space Agency, 2002-08)
Analysis of merged SMMR-SSMI time series of Arctic and Antarctic sea ice parameters 1978-1995
(American Geophysical Union, 1997-02-15)
The most consistent means of investigating the global sea ice cover is by satellite passive microwave sensors, as these are independent of illumination and cloud cover. The Nimbus 7 Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer ...
Observing the Ocean from Space: Emerging Capabilities in Europe
(GODAE Project Office and Bureau of Meteorology, Melbourne, 2001-12)
During the first decade of the 21st century Earth observation from satellites will be faced with two major demands: provision of continuity missions and launch of new exploratory missions. This paper addresses European ...
North Sea circulation: Atlantic inflow and its destination
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-12-22)
This study investigates the Atlantic inflow to the North Sea; its variabil- ity, pathways and destination. Results from a numerical model show that the variability of Atlantic inflow is dependent on the inflow location. ...
Inverse Methods and Data Assimilation in Nonlinear Ocean Models
An overview is given of the current status of inverse methods and data assimilation for nonlinear ocean models. The inverse theory for time dependent dynamical models is formulated and the most promising solution methods ...
Influence of horizontal model grid resolution on the simulated primary production in an embedded primary production model in the Norwegian Sea
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the influence of horizontal grid resolution in a physical model on an embedded primary production model. The area for the experiment was along the west coast of Norway, from 60◦N ...
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 ...
Sensitivity of simulated wintertime Arctic atmosphere to vertical resolution in the ARPEGE/IFS model
(Springer Verlag, 2007-10-16)
The current state of the art general circulation models, including several of those used by the IPCC, show considerable disagreement in simulating present day high latitude climate. This is of major concern and reduces the ...
Satellite detection of natural films on the ocean surface
(American Geophysical Union, 1996-11-01)
Natural films on the ocean surface influence air-sea fluxes of momentum, heat, and gas. It is therefore essential to be able to map the geographical extent and variability of such films to determine the resulting impact ...
