Sea surface gravity wave - wind interaction in the marine atmospheric boundary layer
In this study, we investigate the turbulence structure over idealized wind-generated surface gravity waves with varying wave age using a wave-modified one-dimensional boundary layer model. To prescribe the shape of the ...
Hvordan klimaet kan endres - en innføring
Denne boka handler om det naturvitenskapelige grunnlaget for klimaendringer, om hvordan klimaet kan endres, hva vi vet og hva som er usikkert. En stor del av arbeidet til FNs klimapanel IPCC omfatter dette grunnlaget, de ...
Constraining the exchange through the strait of Bab el Mandab
(The University of Bergen, 2012-10-01)
The strait of Bab el Mandab connects the Red Sea with the Indian ocean via the Gulf of Aden. The mean circulation at the strait is a three-layered exchange. The circulation in the Red Sea is understood to be driven by the ...
Growing Ice in a Tank: Young Sea Ice Evolution and Turbulence in the Under Ice Boundary Layer
(The University of Bergen, 2011-11-14)
Thin sea ice and its modifications of the oceanic boundary layer are important in the context of the recent retreat of the Arctic sea ice cover. To study turbulence in the under ice boundary layer during thin sea ice growth, ...
Numerical modelling of the sub-surface melting of marine-terminating glaciers in Arctic fjords
(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
Submarine melting of glaciers terminating in fjords is likely to be of high importance regarding the total ice loss from ice sheets and ice caps and the resulting addition of freshwater to the ocean. Submarine melting ...
Direct measurements of the mean flow and eddy kinetic energy structure of the upper ocean circuletion in the NE Atlantic
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-19)
The upper ocean circulation in the sub-polar northeast Atlantic has been a challenge to quantify due to strong and variable wind-forcing, and strong and variable deep currents that lead to large uncertainties in the use ...
Wave and wind conditions in the Red Sea. A numerical study using a third generation wave model
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-01)
In order to understand how waves behave and how other parameters can interact between ocean and atmosphere we can use a numerical model. For the Red Sea basin wave measurements are absent and due to that a WAM wave ...
A two-layer model for linear stability analysis of shelf-slope currents.
(The University of Bergen, 2011)
A method for obtaining the normal mode solution of a linear two-layer system over sloping topography has been derived and implemented, providing a basic tool for analysing the disper- sion relation and modal structure ...
The Dynamics of the East Madagascar Current System and Its Influence on the Biological Production Associated to the Shelf - An Observational Study
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-01)
The dynamics of the East Madagascar Current (EMC) system, and its influence on the biological production associated to the shelf, is studied by using cruise-data collected onboard the Norwegian R/V. Dr. Fridtjof Nansen ...
