The Norwegian Atlantic Current in the Lofoten basin inferred from hydrological and tracer data (129I) and its interaction with the Norwegian Coastal Current
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-01-14)
From three hydrological sections taken across the Lofoten Basin in May 2000, we estimated geostrophic transports of 7.2 Sv (Sverdrup = 106 m³ s-¹) for the Norwegian Atlantic Current (NAC) and its division between northern ...
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 ...
Evaluation of ocean carbon cycle models with data-based metrics
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-04-02)
New radiocarbon and chlorofluorocarbon-11 data from the World Ocean Circulation Experiment are used to assess a suite of 19 ocean carbon cycle models. We use the distributions and inventories of these tracers as quantitative ...
On the dynamics of two efﬁcient malaria vectors of the Afrotropical region: Anopheles gambiae s.s. and Anopheles arabiensis
(The University of Bergen, 2013-08-19)
Weather and climate are only some of the factors influencing the dynamics of malaria. With the ongoing debate on the consequences of climate change, there is a need for models which are designed to address these questions. ...
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)
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 ...
Mixing of the Storfjorden overflow (Svalbard Archipelago) inferred from denstity overturns
(American Geophysical Union, 2004-01-03)
Observations were made of the dense overflow from Storfjorden from a survey conducted at closely spaced stations in August 2002. The field data set consists of conventional conductivity-temperature-depth profiles and ...
On the Nordic Seas’ role in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation
(The University of Bergen, 2007-06-27)
In the present climate, the North Atlantic thermohaline circulation (THC) plays a fundamental role in the global transport of heat at high latitudes. The response of the North Atlantic Ocean-Nordic Seas THC to surface ...
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 ...
