On the potential of 230Th, 231Pa, and 10Be for marine rain ratio determinations: A modeling study
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-06-16)
The global distributions of the radionuclides 230Th, 231Pa, and 10Be are simulated with a biogeochemical ocean general circulation model. Sensitivity experiments for changes in the composition of the particle composition ...
Vertical mixing in the marginal ice zone of the Barents Sea Spatial and temporal variation of oceanic turbulence - observations and numerical model experiments
(The University of Bergen, 2007-01-12)
Vertical mixing affects water mass modification, biological productivity, and chemical fluxes in the ocean, but its response to forcing and variability in time and space in seasonally ice-covered seas is inadequately known. ...
Ocean acidication in the Arabian Sea and the Red Sea - factors controlling pH
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-01)
The CO2 increase in the ocean due to uptake of anthropogenic CO2 and the companying lowering of ocean pH is of major concern. In this study we investigated the variability of CO2 system parameters, focusing particularly ...
A study of the renewal of bottom water in Hjeltefjorden using observational data and a σ-coordinate ocean model
(The University of Bergen, 2006-06)
On radar imaging of current features: 2. Mesoscale eddy and current front detection
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-22)
The surface signatures of meandering fronts and eddies have been regularly observed and documented in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. Wave-current interactions, the suppression of short wind waves by natural film, ...
Reconstructing the time history of the air-sea CO2 disequilibrium and its rate of change in the eastern subpolar North Atlantic, 1972–1989
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-02-18)
This study determines the temporal changes of wintertime surface ocean partial pressure of CO2 (pCO2 SW) in the eastern subpolar North Atlantic (esNA) (50–64ºN; 32–10ºW) by using data of carbon-system parameters ...
The circulation of the Norwegian Sea- An investigation from space and ocean
(The University of Bergen, 2014-01-10)
The Norwegian Sea circulation plays a key role in maintaining the mild climate of the northwestern Europe via the transport of warm Atlantic Water pole-ward. The first paper addresses the advective currents connecting the ...
Studies of Eddies in the Marginal Ice Zone Along the East Greenland Current Using Spaceborne Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)
(The University of Bergen, 2011)
The characteristic ice edge eddies in the Marginal Ice Zone (MIZ) are studied based on satellite information from the Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) instrument. The eddies frequency of existence during the day, ...
Sea level variation in the Red Sea based on SODA data
(The University of Bergen, 2012-10-01)
In this study we investigate the sea level variation in the Red Sea focusing on wind stress setup. 50-years dataset from 1957 to 2007 of sea level and wind stress from Simple Ocean Data Assimilation (SODA) data version ...
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 ...
