• Characteristics and Transformation of Pacific Winter Water on the Chukchi Sea Shelf in Late Spring 

      Pacini, Astrid; Moore, George William Kent; Pickart, Robert S.; Nobre, Carolina; Bahr, Frank; Våge, Kjetil; Arrigo, Kevin R. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Data from a late spring survey of the northeast Chukchi Sea are used to investigate various aspects of newly ventilated winter water (NVWW). More than 96% of the water sampled on the shelf was NVWW, the saltiest (densest) ...
    • Decreasing intensity of open-ocean convection in the Greenland and Iceland seas 

      Moore, George William Kent; Våge, Kjetil; Pickart, Robert S.; Renfrew, Ian A. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      The air–sea transfer of heat and fresh water plays a critical role in the global climate system1. This is particularly true for the Greenland and Iceland seas, where these fluxes drive ocean convection that contributes to ...
    • Ocean convection linked to the recent ice edge retreat along east Greenland 

      Våge, Kjetil; Papritz, Lukas; Håvik, Lisbeth; Spall, Michael A.; Moore, George William Kent (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-03-29)
      Warm subtropical-origin Atlantic water flows northward across the Greenland-Scotland Ridge into the Nordic Seas, where it relinquishes heat to the atmosphere and gradually transforms into dense Atlantic-origin water. ...
    • Water mass transformation in the Iceland Sea 

      Våge, Kjetil; Moore, George William Kent; Jónsson, Steingrímur; Valdimarsson, Héðinn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      The water mass transformation that takes place in the Iceland Sea during winter is investigated using historical hydrographic data and atmospheric reanalysis fields. Surface densities exceeding σθ ¼ 27:8 kg=m3, and hence ...
