The greater Agulhas Current system: an integrated study of its mesoscale variability
(The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST), 2008-02)
For the purpose of developing an operational oceanography system for the greater Agulhas Current regime, a high resolution Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) has been set in a nested configuration. The intense and complex ...
The Influence of Vertical Mixing on the Stability of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation
(The University of Bergen, 2006-12-05)
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 ...
Climate change in the North – past, present and future
(International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS), 2008-03)
The Nordic countries have produced famous polar explorers and researchers who have generated climate research schools at a variety of locations. The dependence of these countries with respect to the lifelihood of their ...
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 ...
Large-Scale Atmospheric Circulation Variability and its Impacts on the Nordic Seas Ocean Climate - a Review. In: The Nordic Seas: An Integrated Perspective
(American Geophysical Union, 2005)
The large-scale atmospheric circulation and its impacts on the Nordic Seas ocean climate are reviewed. The dominant factors for the atmospheric variability are the Icelandic low and the Azores high, determining the strength ...
Sea Ice Monitoring by Remote Sensing
(The American Society for Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing, 2006)
Ocean data assimilation systems for GODAE
(The Oceanography Society, 2009-09)
Ocean data assimilation has matured to the point that observations are now routinely combined with model forecasts to produce a variety of ocean products. Approaches to ocean data assimilation vary widely both in terms ...
Application of a hybrid EnKF-OI to ocean forecasting
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2009-10-01)
Data assimilation methods often use an ensemble to represent the background error covariance. Two approaches are commonly used; a simple one with a static ensemble, or a more advanced one with a dynamic ensemble. The latter ...
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 ...
