    • New approaches to investigate the influence of orographic and dynamic blocking on large-scale atmospheric flow 

      Spensberger, Clemens (The University of Bergen, 2015-01-15)
      Orographic and dynamic blocks have a profound influence on both weather and climate. The persistence of dynamic blocks can, for example, lead to the build-up of extreme temperature anomalies or droughts. In addition, ...

    • North Atlantic storm track changes during the Last Glacial Maximum recorded by Alpine speleothems 

      Luetscher, Marc; Boch, Ronny; Sodemann, Harald; Spötl, Christoph; Cheng, Hai; Edwards, Roger Lawrence; Frisia, Silvia; Hof, Florian; Müller, Wolfgang A. (Nature Publishing Group, 2015-02-27)
      The European Alps are an effective barrier for meridional moisture transport and are thus uniquely placed to record shifts in the North Atlantic storm track pattern associated with the waxing and waning of Late-Pleistocene ...

    • The Northeast Greenland shelf as a potential habitat for the Northeast Arctic cod 

      Strand, Kjersti Opstad; Sundby, Svein; Albretsen, Jon; Vikebø, Frode Bendiksen (Frontiers, 2017-09-26)
      Observations (1978–1991) of distributions of pelagic juvenile Northeast Arctic cod (Gadus morhua L.) show that up to 1/3 of the year class are dispersed off the continental shelf and into the deep Norwegian Sea while on ...

    • The northern Barents Sea during 1970–2016: From seabed to surface in the Arctic warming hotspot 

      Lind, Sigrid (The University of Bergen, 2018-05-09)
      Global warming is amplified in the cold and white Arctic, where strong positive feedback mechanisms associated with, e.g., changes in surface conditions and the vertical structure of the Arctic atmosphere enhance the ...
