    • Frazil ice formation in ice shelf water plume 

      Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Jenkins, Adrian (American Geophysical Union, 2004-03-17)
      We present a model for the growth of frazil ice crystals and their accumulation as marine ice at the base of Antarctic ice shelves. The model describes the flow of buoyant water upward along the ice shelf base and includes ...

    • Frontal-wave cyclogenesis in the North Atlantic –a climatological characterisation 

      Schemm, Sebastian; Sprenger, Michael (Wiley, 2015-10)
      The ambient conditions during cyclogenesis on fronts in the North Atlantic (NA) are characterised climatologically in the ERA-Interim dataset. These ‘secondary’ cyclones, which grow from frontal waves, are typically small ...

    • Global and regional surface cooling in a warming climate: a multi-model analysis 

      Medhaug, Iselin; Drange, Helge (Springer, 2015)
      Instrumental temperature records show that the global climate may experience decadal-scale periods without warming despite a long-term warming trend. We analysed 17 global climate models participating in phase 5 of the ...
