      Muilwijk, Morven; Ilicak, Mehmet; Cornish, Sam B.; Danilov, Sergey; Gelderloos, Renske; Gerdes, Rüdiger; Haid, Verena; Haine, Thomas W.N.; Johnson, Helen L.; Kostov, Yavor; Kovács, Tamás; Lique, Camille; Marson, Juliana M.; Myers, Paul G.; Scott, Jeffery; Smedsrud, Lars H.; Talandier, Claude; Wang, Qiang (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-08-04)
      Plain Language Summary: The North Atlantic Current is an extension of the Gulf Stream, which brings warm Atlantic Water northward as the current flows through the Nordic Seas. Eventually, it enters the cold deep Arctic ...
    • Export of ice sheet meltwater from Upernavik fjord, West Greenland 

      Muilwijk, Morven; Straneo, Fiammetta; Slater, Donald A.; Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Holte, James; Wood, Michael; Andresen, Camilla S.; Harden, Ben (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Meltwater from Greenland is an important freshwater source for the North Atlantic Ocean, released into the ocean at the head of fjords in the form of runoff, submarine melt, and icebergs. The meltwater release gives rise ...
    • From winter to late summer in the northwestern Barents Sea shelf: Impacts of seasonal progression of sea ice and upper ocean on nutrient and phytoplankton dynamics 

      Koenig, Zoe Charlotte; Muilwijk, Morven; Sandven, Håkon Johan; Lundesgaard, Øyvind; Assmy, Philipp Kurt Wolf; Lind, Sigrid Gjessing; Assmann, Karen; Chierici, Melissa; Fransson, Agneta; Gerland, Sebastian; Jones, Elizabeth Marie; Renner, Angelika; Granskog, Mats (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2024)
      Strong seasonality is a key feature of high-latitude systems like the Barents Sea. While the interannual variability and long-term changes of the Barents Sea are well-documented, the seasonal progression of the physical ...
    • How much arctic fresh water participates in the subpolar overturning circulation? 

      Le Bras, Isabela; Straneo, Fiamma; Muilwijk, Morven; Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Li, Feili; Susan Lozier, Lozier; Penny Holliday, Holliday (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Fresh Arctic waters flowing into the Atlantic are thought to have two primary fates. They may be mixed into the deep ocean as part of the overturning circulation, or flow alongside regions of deep water formation without ...
    • Impact of sea ice transport on Beaufort Gyre liquid freshwater content 

      Cornish, Sam B.; Muilwijk, Morven; Scott, Jeffery R.; Marson, Juliana M.; Myers, Paul G.; Zhang, Wenhao; Wang, Qiang; Kostov, Yavor; Johnson, Helen L.; Marshall, John (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2023)
      The Arctic Ocean’s Beaufort Gyre (BG) is a wind-driven reservoir of relatively fresh seawater, situated beneath time-mean anticyclonic atmospheric circulation, and is covered by mobile pack ice for most of the year. Liquid ...
    • 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 ...
    • Overview of the MOSAiC expedition: Physical oceanography 

      Rabe, Benjamin; Baumann, Till Martin; Divine, Dmitry; Fer, Ilker; Gradinger, Rolf Rudolf; Granskog, Mats; Koenig, Zoe Charlotte; Muilwijk, Morven; Sundfjord, Arild (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Arctic Ocean properties and processes are highly relevant to the regional and global coupled climate system, yet still scarcely observed, especially in winter. Team OCEAN conducted a full year of physical oceanography ...
    • Pacific contribution to decadal surface temperature trends in the Arctic during the twentieth century 

      Svendsen, Lea; Keenlyside, Noel; Muilwijk, Morven; Bethke, Ingo; Omrani, Nour-Eddine; Gao, Yongqi (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Instrumental records suggest multidecadal variability in Arctic surface temperature throughout the twentieth century. This variability is caused by a combination of external forcing and internal variability, but their ...
    • Upper-ocean turbulence structure and ocean-ice drag coefficient estimates using an ascending microstructure profiler during the MOSAiC drift 

      Fer, Ilker; Baumann, Till Martin; Koenig, Zoe Charlotte; Muilwijk, Morven; Tippenhauer, Sandra (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022)
      Sea ice mediates the transfer of momentum, heat, and gas between the atmosphere and ocean. However, the under-ice boundary layer is not sufficiently constrained by observations. During the Multidisciplinary drifting ...
