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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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)
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 ...
