      The ocean is a lifeline for human existence, but current practices risk severely undermining ocean sustainability. Present and future social−ecological challenges necessitate the maintenance and development of knowledge ...
    • How Is the Ocean Anthropogenic Carbon Reservoir Filled? 

      Davila, Xabier; Gebbie, Geoffrey; Brakstad, Ailin; Lauvset, Siv Kari; McDonagh, Elaine Louise; Schwinger, Jörg; Olsen, Are (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      About a quarter of the total anthropogenic CO2 emissions during the industrial era has been absorbed by the ocean. The rate limiting step for this uptake is the transport of the anthropogenic carbon (Cant) from the ocean ...

      The Iceland Greenland Seas Project (IGP) is a coordinated atmosphere–ocean research program investigating climate processes in the source region of the densest waters of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation. ...
    • Nordic Seas Heat Loss, Atlantic Inflow, and Arctic Sea Ice cover over the last century 

      Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Muilwijk, Morven; Eldevik, Tor; Årthun, Marius; Brakstad, Ailin; Madonna, Erica; Lauvset, Siv Kari; Spensberger, Clemens; Born, Andreas; Drange, Helge; Jeansson, Emil; Li, Camille; Olsen, Are; Skagseth, Øystein; Slater, Donald; Straneo, Fiammetta; Våge, Kjetil (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Poleward ocean heat transport is a key process in the earth system. We detail and review the northward Atlantic Water (AW) flow, Arctic Ocean heat transport, and heat loss to the atmosphere since 1900 in relation to sea ...
    • Sources and upstream pathways of the densest overflow water in the Nordic Seas 

      Huang, Jie; Pickart, Robert S.; Huang, Rui Xin; Lin, Peigen; Brakstad, Ailin; Xu, Fanghua (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Overflow water from the Nordic Seas comprises the deepest limb of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, yet questions remain as to where it is ventilated and how it reaches the Greenland-Scotland Ridge. Here we ...
    • Transient Increase in Arctic Deep-Water Formation and Ocean Circulation under Sea Ice Retreat 

      Bretones, Anais Magali; Nisancioglu, Kerim Hestnes; Jensen, Mari Fjalstad; Brakstad, Ailin; Yang, Shuting (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      While a rapid sea ice retreat in the Arctic has become ubiquitous, the potential weakening of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC) in response to global warming is still under debate. As deep mixing occurs ...
    • Water mass transformation in the Greenland Sea during the period 1986-2016 

      Brakstad, Ailin; Våge, Kjetil; Håvik, Lisbeth; Moore, G.W.K. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-01)
      Hydrographic measurements from ships, autonomous profiling floats, and instrumented seals over the period 1986–2016 are used to examine the temporal variability in open-ocean convection in the Greenland Sea during winter. ...
