An investigation of the Faroe Shelf Front
(The University of Bergen, 2003)
The water mass on the Faroe Shelf is distinct from the off-shelf water surrounding the shelf. This difference of water masses is reflected in the temperature and salinity distributions. The on-shelf water is colder and ...
Monitoring the Norwegian Atlantic slope current using a single moored current meter
Monitoring the Atlantic inflow (AI) of warm and saline water into the Nordic Seas (Norwegian, Greenland and Iceland Seas) is of great importance becauce of its impact on climate and ecology in Northern Europe and Arctic. ...
High resolution weather forecasting and predictability - applications in complex terrain
(The University of BergenStorm Weather Center, 2006-11-17)
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)
Productivity in the Barents Sea - Response to recent climate variability
The temporal and spatial dynamics of primary and secondary biomass/production in the Barents Sea since the late 1990s are examined using remote sensing data, observations and a coupled physical-biological model. Field ...
Small-scale dynamics of the under-ice boundary layer
(The University of Bergen, 2009-01-09)
In ice covered polar regions, the interaction between ocean, ice and atmosphere is an important component in the complex climate system. Exchange of heat, mass and momentum occurs across the boundary layers, both in the ...
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 ...
Potensialet for utnyttelse av vindkraft på Vannøya i Nord-Troms
(The University of Bergen, 2005)
