Extremes and Trends in Wave Climate. A regional and global study
(The University of Bergen, 2015-01-16)
Wind generated surface waves represent a critical factor for offshore constructions and coastal development, and are highly relevant in scientific questions related to climate and weather. The sea state can be described ...
Monitoring the Norwegian Atlantic slope current using a single moored current meter
Monitoring the Atlantic inflow (AI) of warm and saline water into the Nordic Seas (Norwegian, Greenland and Iceland Seas) is of great importance becauce of its impact on climate and ecology in Northern Europe and Arctic. ...
High resolution weather forecasting and predictability - applications in complex terrain
(The University of BergenStorm Weather Center, 2006-11-17)
North Atlantic multidecadal variability in coupled climate models - Mechanisms and responses
(The University of Bergen, 2011-05-06)
Global atmosphere-ocean general circulation models have been used to investigate mechanisms controlling the North Atlantic low-frequency variability, with the focus on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, the ...
Productivity in the Barents Sea - Response to recent climate variability
The temporal and spatial dynamics of primary and secondary biomass/production in the Barents Sea since the late 1990s are examined using remote sensing data, observations and a coupled physical-biological model. Field ...
Small-scale dynamics of the under-ice boundary layer
(The University of Bergen, 2009-01-09)
In ice covered polar regions, the interaction between ocean, ice and atmosphere is an important component in the complex climate system. Exchange of heat, mass and momentum occurs across the boundary layers, both in the ...
Linking Northern High-Latitude Cryospheric Changes to Large-Scale Atmospheric Circulation
(The University of Bergen, 2015-03-20)
Warming twice as fast as the rest of the globe, the northern high-latitudes arguably show the clearest evidences of observed and projected climate changes. Two of these are the rapid loss of Arctic sea ice and the shrinking ...
Ocean acidication in the Arabian Sea and the Red Sea - factors controlling pH
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-01)
The CO2 increase in the ocean due to uptake of anthropogenic CO2 and the companying lowering of ocean pH is of major concern. In this study we investigated the variability of CO2 system parameters, focusing particularly ...
Estimating global radiation at ground level from satellite images
(The University of Bergen, 2005-06-15)
Growing Ice in a Tank: Young Sea Ice Evolution and Turbulence in the Under Ice Boundary Layer
(The University of Bergen, 2011-11-14)
Thin sea ice and its modifications of the oceanic boundary layer are important in the context of the recent retreat of the Arctic sea ice cover. To study turbulence in the under ice boundary layer during thin sea ice growth, ...
