Sea Ice Monitoring by Remote Sensing
(The American Society for Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing, 2006)
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 ...
Simulated North Atlantic-Nordic Seas water mass exchanges in an isopycnic coordinate OGCM
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-05-29)
The variability in the volume exchanges between the North Atlantic and the Nordic Seas during the last 50 years is investigated using a synoptic forced, global version of the Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM). ...
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 ...
An intercomparison between the surface heat flux feedback in five coupled models, COADS and the NCEP reanalysis
(Springer Verlag, 2004-04)
The surface heat ﬂux feedback is estimated in the Atlantic and the extra-tropical Indo-Paciﬁc, using monthly heat ﬂux and sea surface temperature anomaly data from control simulations with ﬁve global climate models, and ...
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 ...
Annual carbon fluxes in the upper Greenland Sea based on measurements and a box-model approach
Measurements of nitrate and the carbonate system parameters performed mainly from 1993 to 1997 have been used to estimate the evolution of the concentration fields over the year in the surface and underlying waters of ...
On the effect of a sill on dense water formation in a marginal sea
(Sears Foundation for Marine Research/Yale University, 2008-05)
The properties of water mass transformation in a semi-enclosed basin, separated from the open ocean by a sill and subject to surface cooling, are analyzed both theoretically and numerically using an ocean general circulation ...
Transient response of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation to enhanced freshwater input to the Nordic Seas–Arctic Ocean in the Bergen Climate Model
The transient response of the climate system to anomalously large freshwater input to the high latitude seas is examined using the newly developed Bergen Climate Model. A 150-yr twin-experiment has been carried out, ...
Water mass transformation and the North Atlantic Current in three multi-century climate model simulations
(American Geophysical Union, 2012-11)
The warm and saline Subtropical Water carried by the North Atlantic Current undergoes substantial transformation on its way to higher latitudes as heat is released from ocean to atmosphere. The geographical distribution ...
