Single CO2 drops in seawater
(The University of Bergen, 2004)
To mitigate the increasing atmospheric CO2 level and reduce the subsequent impacts, storage of CO2 is one option that might become necessary. Ocean storage and storage of CO2 under the sea bottom with potential leakage ...
Numeriske simuleringer av strøm over mesoskala fjell med den ikke-hydrostatiske modellen MEMO
(The University of Bergen, 2005)
Circulation and transformation of Atlantic and Arctic water masses in climate models
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-09)
Ocean heat transport and associated heat loss to the atmosphere contributes significantly to the anomalously mild climate of northwestern Europe and its variability. In this thesis, the circulation and transformation of ...
Analysis of 3 years of precipitation measurements from the Micro Rain Radar located at the Geophysical Institute
(The University of Bergen, 2013-11-20)
An analysis of three years of vertically pointing Micro Rain Radar (MRR) data from the measurement platform at the Geophysical Institute has been performed. The measurement period started at 13.04.2010 and ended at 12.04.2013. ...
Vertical mixing in the Arctic Ocean inferred from eXpendable Current Profilers
(The University of Bergen, 2011-05-31)
Recent and historical data sets from different regions of the Arctic Ocean are analysed using velocity profiles from 127 eXpendable Current Profiler (XCP) deployments from the time period 1993 to 2010. The data sets are ...
Carbon to nutrient ratios in marine systems: understanding natural variability Studies of seasonal, inter-annual and regional variability
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-29)
Ecological stoichiometry deals with the coupling of the carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) cycles at the base of the aquatic food webs. Variation in C:N:P stoichiometry is driven by a multitude of factors, and ...
Topographically Controlled Flow in the Isfjorden Trough and the West Spitsbergen Shelf
(The University of Bergen, 2011-11-20)
A one layer numerical model demonstrates how the Atlantic Water (AW) from the West Spitsbergen Current (WSC) is topographically steered onto the West Spitsbergen Shelf (WSS) with a special emphasise on the Isfjorden Trough. ...
Characterization of the coastal marine atmospheric boundary layer (MABL) for wind energy applications
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-03)
The main problem for the characterization of marine atmospheric boundary layer is the lack of available offshore measurements in relevant altitude range up to 200 m. Remote sensing meteorological instruments such as LIDARs ...
Estimating fin whale distribution from ambient noise spectra using Bayesian inversion
(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
Passive acoustic monitoring is increasingly used to study the distribution and migration of marine mammals. Marine mammal vocalizations are transient sounds, but the combined sound energy of a population continuously ...
The influence of the ocean and the stratosphere on climate persistence in the North Atlantic region
(The University of Bergen, 2009-09-07)
The North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) is generally regarded to largely be a product of processes internal to the troposphere. This thesis investigates various aspects of how the NAO and related climatical fields are ...
