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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Seasonal to Decadal Temperature Variations in the Faroe-Shetland Inflow Waters
(American Geophysical Union, 2005)
A 53 years hind-cast simulation with a regional version of the Nansen Center version of the Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM) has been conducted to explore the nature of the observed seasonal to inter-annual ...
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 ...
Evaluating two numerical advection schemes in HYCOM for eddy-resolving modelling of the Agulhas Current
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2009-06-02)
A 4th order advection scheme is applied in a nested eddy-resolving Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) of the greater Agulhas Current system for the purpose of testing advanced numerics as a means for improving the model ...
Sea ice monitoring in the Arctic using satellite SAR images
(Luleå University of Technology and NERSC, 2007)
Microwave Study programs of Air-Ice-Ocean interactive processes in the Seasonal Ice Zone of the Greenland and Barents Seas
(American Geophysical Union, 1992)
Describes the use of satellite ice data into a working technology for the satellite data sets of the recent past and immediate future. Chapters cover basic observations, modeling, geophysical interpretation, and using data ...
Magnitude and Origin of the Anthropogenic CO2 Increase and the 13C Suess Effect in the Nordic Seas since 1981
This study evaluates the anthropogenic changes of CO2 (∆Cant) and δ13C (∆δ13Cant) in the Nordic seas, the northern limb of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, that took place between 1981 and 2002/03. The ...
Measuring Ocean Salinity with ESA’s SMOS Mission – Advancing the Science
