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. ...
Norwegian farmers' diaries used for quality control and calibration of early instrumental observations, and for temperature reconstructions
(The University of Bergen, 2008-06-10)
Interannual controls on Weddell Sea surface water fCO2 during the autumn–winter transition phase
The fugacity of carbon dioxide (fCO2) of the surface waters of the Weddell Sea along the prime meridian has been described for the austral autumn in 1996 and 1998. For individual years, fCO2 has a strong linear relationship ...
Periodic changes in the zooplankton of the North Sea during the twentieth century linked to oceanic inflow
(Blackwell Publishing, 2003)
Oceanic inflow is estimated to contribute more than 90% of the nutrient input into the North Sea. Variability in the volume, chemical properties, biological content and source of the inflowing water is thus likely to ...
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 ...
Reconstruction of former glacier equilibrium-line altitudes based on proglacial sites: an evaluation of approaches and selection of sites
Various approaches are used to record variations in glacier activity and equilibrium-line altitudes (ELAs) based on proglacial sites (lacustrine and terrestrial). These approaches are based on a conceptual model of ...
Late Holocene surface ocean conditions of the Norwegian Sea (Vøring Plateau)
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-06-04)
Late Holocene sea surface ocean conditions of the eastern Norwegian Sea (Vøring Plateau) are inferred from planktic stable isotopes and planktic foraminiferal assemblage changes in cores JM97-948/2A and MD95-2011 (66.97°N, ...
The effect of radiation screens on Nordic time series of mean temperature
(Royal Meteorological Society, 1997-12)
A short survey of the historical development of temperature radiation screens is given based upon research in the archives of the Nordic meteorological institutes. In the middle of the nineteenth century most thermometer ...
Dissolution from a liquid CO2 lake disposed in the deep ocean
(American Society of Limnology and Oceanography, 2003)
The dissolution from a liquid CO2 lake source located at a flat ocean bottom at 3,000 m depth is investigated. Using the unsteady, two-dimensional advection–diffusion equation, temporal and spatial distribution of CO2 ...
Monthly to annual variability of the Norwegian Atlantic slope current: connection between the northern North Atlantic and the Norwegian Sea
This study investigated relations between direct current measurements in the Norwegian Atlantic slope current (NwASC), the sea surface height variability from the TOPEX altimeter, and reanalysed mean sea level pressure ...
