Moisture Transport and Precipitation in Ethiopia
(The University of Bergen, 2012-05-09)
With little irrigation and a diverse climate, Ethiopia is a country where the effects of too little precipitation are frequently seen. While the generation of precipitation also depends on local ascent and cooling of the ...
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 ...
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 ...
Benguela Niños: Observations and Modelling
(The University of Bergen, 2004)
A numerical ocean model for the South Atlantic was used to study the 1995 Benguela Niño in order to learn about the underlying forcing mechanisms of the phenomenon. By comparing observations and model output, it was found ...
Potensialet for utnyttelse av vindkraft på Vannøya i Nord-Troms
(The University of Bergen, 2005)
Water mass exchange in the sea west of Svalbard. A process study of flow instability and vortex generated heat fluxes in the West Spitsbergen Current
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-16)
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 ...
Dissipation measurements using temperature microstructure from an underwater glider
Microstructure measurements of temperature and current shear are made using an autonomous underwater glider. The glider is equipped with fast-response thermistors and airfoil shear probes, providing measurements of dissipation ...
Atmospheric boundary layers in storms: advanced theory and modelling applications
(European Geosciences Union/Copernicus, 2005-03-29)
Turbulent planetary boundary layers (PBLs) control the exchange processes between the atmosphere and the ocean/land. The key problems of PBL physics are to determine the PBL height, the momentum, energy and matter fluxes ...
