Characterization of the coastal marine atmospheric boundary layer (MABL) for wind energy applications
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-03)
The main problem for the characterization of marine atmospheric boundary layer is the lack of available offshore measurements in relevant altitude range up to 200 m. Remote sensing meteorological instruments such as LIDARs ...
A numerical estimate of the tidal energy in the Lofoten area
(The University of Bergen, 2014-05-28)
In the following study the energy potential associated with tidal energy will be investigated. A depth integrated model based on the Navier Stokes equations and the continuity equation will be applied to simulate the ...
On Mixed Wind-Sea/Swell Conditions in the Open Ocean : Model and Radar-Observations
(The University of Bergen, 2005)
Measured, modelled and satellite derived solar radiation in Scandinavia
(The Universitetet i Bergen, 2011-06-01)
This article presents a comparison of global radiation data at different sites at the Scandinavian Peninsula. It makes use of ground truth, modelled and satellite derived surface global radiation data. First, a quality ...
Global observed changes in daily climate extremes of temperature and precipitation
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-03-15)
A suite of climate change indices derived from daily temperature and precipitation data, with a primary focus on extreme events, were computed and analyzed. By setting an exact formula for each index and using specially ...
En enkel gressvekstmodell utprøvd på Island og i Norge
(The University of Bergen, 2001)
Estimating fin whale distribution from ambient noise spectra using Bayesian inversion
(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
Passive acoustic monitoring is increasingly used to study the distribution and migration of marine mammals. Marine mammal vocalizations are transient sounds, but the combined sound energy of a population continuously ...
The influence of the ocean and the stratosphere on climate persistence in the North Atlantic region
(The University of Bergen, 2009-09-07)
The North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) is generally regarded to largely be a product of processes internal to the troposphere. This thesis investigates various aspects of how the NAO and related climatical fields are ...
Past climate variability: model analysis and proxy intercomparison
(The University of Bergen, 2010-10-22)
This thesis investigates the climate variability of the late Quaternary (21 000 yrs BP to present day) using model simulations and proxy data. The thesis consists of four manuscripts and one appendix.In the first two ...
