• Global Stokes drift climate under the RCP8.5 scenario 

      Breivik, Øyvind; Carrasco, Ana; Staneva, Joanna; Behrens, Arno; Semedo, Alvaro; Bidlot, Jean-Raymond; Aarnes, Ole Johan (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The future Stokes drift climate is investigated using a global wave climate projection (2071–2100) forced with EC-EARTH winds under the RCP8.5 scenario. The future climate run is compared against a historical run (1976–2005). ...
    • A high‐resolution hindcast of wind and waves for the North Sea, the Norwegian Sea, and the Barents Sea 

      Reistad, Magnar; Breivik, Øyvind; Haakenstad, Hilde; Aarnes, Ole Johan; Furevik, Birgitte Rugaard; Bidlot, Jean-Raymond (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2011-05)
      A combined high-resolution atmospheric downscaling and wave hindcast based on the ERA-40 reanalysis covering the Norwegian Sea, the North Sea, and the Barents Sea is presented. The period covered is from September 1957 to ...
    • Marine Wind and Wave Height Trends at Different ERA-Interim Forecast Ranges 

      Aarnes, Ole Johan; Abdalla, Saleh; Bidlot, Jean-Raymond; Breivik, Øyvind (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-01-15)
      Trends in marine wind speed and significant wave height are investigated using the global reanalysis ERA-Interim over the period 1979–2012, based on monthly-mean and monthly-maximum data. Besides the traditional reanalysis, ...
    • Sea-state contributions to sea-level variability in the European Seas 

      Bonaduce, Antonio; Staneva, Joanna; Grayek, Sebastian; Bidlot, Jean-Raymond; Breivik, Øyvind (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The contribution of sea-state-induced processes to sea-level variability is investigated through ocean-wave coupled simulations. These experiments are performed with a high-resolution configuration of the Geestacht COAstal ...
    • The "shallow-waterness" of the wave climate in European coastal regions 

      Christensen, Kai Håkon; Carrasco, Ana; Bidlot, Jean-Raymond; Breivik, Øyvind (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-07-20)
      In contrast to deep water waves, shallow water waves are influenced by bottom topography, which has consequences for the propagation of wave energy as well as for the energy and momentum exchange between the waves and the ...
    • Wind and wave extremes over the world oceans from very large ensembles 

      Breivik, Øyvind; Aarnes, Ole Johan; Abdalla, Saleh; Bidlot, Jean-Raymond; Janssen, Peter A. E. M. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-07)
      Global return values of marine wind speed and significant wave height are estimated from very large aggregates of archived ensemble forecasts at +240 h lead time. Long lead time ensures that the forecasts represent independent ...
