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 ...
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 ...
Two-phase, near-field modeling of purposefully released CO2 in the ocean
(American Geophysical Union, 2001-01-15)
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 ...
Tracer-derived transit time of the waters in the eastern Nordic Seas
(Blackwell Munksgaard, 2005-08-25)
The spatial-temporal distribution of the anthropogenic radionuclide 137Cs originating from nuclear bomb testing and the Sellafield reprocessing plant in the Irish Sea is simulated using a global version of the Miami Isopycnic ...
The Effect of Diapycnal Mixing on the Ventilation and CFC-11 Uptake in the Southern Ocean
(Science Press, 2004-03-04)
The Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM) is used to investigate the effect of diapycnal mixing on the oceanic uptake of CFC-11 and the ventilation of the surface waters in the Southern Ocean (south of 45°S). ...
Data assimilation for coastal zone monitoring and forecasting
(Elsevier Science, 1997)
Heat and Mass Transfer Laws for Turbulent Convective Flows in the Atmosphere over Leads in Ice Covered Oceans, C32A-1123, American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, 5-9 December, San-Francisco, USA
(Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center, 2005)
Patches of open water (cracks, leads and polynias, Figure 1) in theice cover give major contributions to turbulent exchanges of heat, moisture, CO2 and other gases between the atmosphere and Polar oceans. Here, convective ...
Heat in the Barents Sea: Transport, storage, and surface fluxes
(Copernicus Publications, 2010-01-11)
A column model is set up for the Barents Sea to explore sensitivity of surface fluxes and heat storage from varying ocean heat transport. Mean monthly ocean transport and atmospheric forcing are synthesised and force the ...
On spiral eddies in the ocean
(The University of Bergen, 2000)
