Annual and Seasonal Mean Net Evaporation Rates of the Red Sea Water during Jan 1958 - Dec 2007
(The University of Bergen, 2012-10-01)
Data set including sea level, temperature, salinity, and current from Simple Ocean Data Assimilation (SODA) is used in this study to estimate the mean net annually and seasonally evaporation rates. Then wind data is used ...
Some aspects of the work of V.W. Ekman
(Cambridge University Press, 2006-01)
The climatic conditions in theArctic, and observations of the wind-induced drift of ice made in connexion with Fridtjof Nansen’s Fram expedition, led to the discovery 100 years ago by Vilhelm Bjerknes’ pupil, V.W. Ekman, ...
A view on possible regime shifts in the North Atlantic subpolar gyre in the mid 1920s and 1990s
(The University of Bergen, 2014-10-22)
There is strong observational support for two significant warming episodes of the North Atlantic Subpolar Gyre (SPG), one starting in the mid 1920s the other in the mid 1990s. Possible mechanisms responsible for the two ...
Aspects on interactions between mid- to high latitude atmospheric circulation and some surface processes
(The University of Bergen, 2006-06-08)
The Arctic is a hot topic in Climate Research. A large number of signs of a warming Arctic Climate have been identified the latest years. This is of major concern in light of the increasing atmospheric content of greenhouse ...
On the Influence of Small-Scale Topography on Dense Plumes, with a Special Focus on the Filchner Overflow Plume
(The University of Bergen, 2007-10-05)
Quantification of iron-rich volcanogenic dust emissions and deposition over the ocean from Icelandic dust sources
(Copernicus PublicationsEuropean Geosciences Union, 2014-12-02)
Iceland has extremely active dust sources that result in large-scale emissions and deposition on land and at sea. The dust has a volcanogenic origin of basaltic composition with about 10% Fe content. We used two independent ...
Strandforskyvningsundersøkelser og kartlegging av tsunamisedimenter i Nordland
(The University of Bergen, 2003)
I Nordland er sedimentene i seks glasiale basseng i Hommelstø, tre basseng på Straumøya og et basseng på Kjerringøy undersøkt, beskrevet og tolket litostratigrafisk. I de fleste basseng er isolasjonskontakten bestemt ...
Målt og Modellert Globalstråling ved Ekofisk og i Nordområdene
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-01)
I dette arbeidet er globalstrålingsdata fra Ekofisk, Arktis og fastlandsstasjoner i Norge og Sverige studert. Stasjonene ligger mellom 56°N og 75°N, og all data er hentet fra perioden 2005 til og med 2010. Målinger i Arktis ...
Turbulence and heat exchange under ice
(The University of Bergen, 2003)
Turbulent fluxes of heat and salt were measured under sea ice at four different locations around Spitsbergen. In Kongsfjorden on West Spitsbergen additional measurements of heat fluxes in the ice and in the atmosphere were ...
Connectivity among subpopulations of Norwegian Coastal cod. Impacts of physical-biological factors during egg stages.
(The University of Bergen, 2012-04-19)
Norwegian Coastal cod form a stationary population of Atlantic cod ( Gadus morhua L.) consisting of several genetically separated subpopulations. A small-scale differen- tiation in marine populations with pelagic ...
