• Calving rates at tidewater glaciers vary strongly with ocean temperature 

      Luckman, Adrian; Benn, Doug; Cottier, Finlo; Bevan, Suzanne; Nilsen, Frank; Inall, Mark (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-10-09)
      Rates of ice mass loss at the calving margins of tidewater glaciers (frontal ablation rates) are a key uncertainty in sea level rise projections. Measurements are difficult because mass lost is replaced by ice flow at ...
    • In the dark: a review of ecosystem processes during the Arctic polar night 

      Berge, Jørgen; Renaud, Paul; Darnis, Gérald; Cottier, Finlo; Last, Kim; Gabrielsen, Tove M.; Johnsen, Geir; Seuthe, Lena; Weslawski, Jan Marcin; Leu, Eva; Moline, Mark A.; Nahrgang, Jasmine; Søreide, Janne; Varpe, Øystein; Lønne, Ole Jørgen; Daase, Malin; Falk-Petersen, Stig (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-08-28)
      Several recent lines of evidence indicate that the polar night is key to understanding Arctic marine ecosystems. First, the polar night is not a period void of biological activity even though primary production is close ...
    • Water mass modification in an Arctic fjord through cross-shelf exchange: The seasonal hydrography of Kongsfjorden, Svalbard 

      Cottier, Finlo; Tverberg, Vigdis; Inall, Mark; Svendsen, Harald; Nilsen, Frank; Griffiths, Colin (Journal article, 2005-12-08)
      Kongsfjorden and the West Spitsbergen Shelf is a region whose seasonal hydrography is dominated by the balance of Atlantic Water, Arctic waters, and glacial melt. Regional seasonality and the cross-shelf exchange processes ...
