The East Greenland Current: Structure and Variability
(The University of Bergen, 2004)
Interannual variability in the wintertime air–sea flux of carbon dioxide in the northern North Atlantic, 1981–2001
Gridded fields of sea surface temperature (SST), sea level pressure (SLP), and wind speed were used in combination with data for the atmospheric mole fraction of CO2 and an empirical relationship between measured values ...
Ocean abyssal carbon experiments at 0.7 and 4 km depth
Observations from small-scale (20 to 90 litres) CO2 experiments conducted off the coast of California at 684 m depth and at 3942 m depth are discussed. In both experiments, when the seawater velocity was sufficiently strong, ...
Tracking Summer Extra-Tropical Storms: A Climatological Overview and Variability in the Northern Hemisphere
(The University of Bergen, 2006-05-04)
Topographic effects on CO2, diffusion and dissolution from the seafloor
At 3000 meters depth liquid CO2 is denser than seawater and hence will be stored as a “lake” on the deep ocean floor, which is expected to gradually be dissolved in seawater. Ocean currents and turbulence will influence ...
The sensitivity of the present day Atlantic meriodinal overturning circulation to freshwater forcing
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-09-09)
Mounting evidence indicates that the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) was strongly reduced during cold climate episodes in the past, possible due to freshwater influx from glacial melting. It is also ...
Dynamics of a CO2-seawater interface in the deep ocean
(Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2005)
A trough filled with liquid CO2 located at 3940 m depth has been used as a model system for CO2 deposition on the seafloor. To study the intrinsic properties of the interface between CO2 and seawater a wave maker was used ...
Romeo : roterande fysisk fjordmodell av Hjeltefjorden, Byfjorden, Herdlefjorden og fjordane rund Osterøy
(The University of Bergen, 2001)
Direct measurements of the mean flow and eddy kinetic energy structure of the upper ocean circuletion in the NE Atlantic
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-19)
The upper ocean circulation in the sub-polar northeast Atlantic has been a challenge to quantify due to strong and variable wind-forcing, and strong and variable deep currents that lead to large uncertainties in the use ...
Numerical modelling of the sub-surface melting of marine-terminating glaciers in Arctic fjords
(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
Submarine melting of glaciers terminating in fjords is likely to be of high importance regarding the total ice loss from ice sheets and ice caps and the resulting addition of freshwater to the ocean. Submarine melting ...
