    • Heat in the Barents Sea: Transport, storage, and surface fluxes 

      Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Ingvaldsen, Randi; Nilsen, Jan Even Øie; Skagseth, Øystein (Journal article, 2010-01-11)
      A column model is set up for the Barents Sea to explore sensitivity of surface fluxes and heat storage from varying ocean heat transport. Mean monthly ocean transport and atmospheric forcing are synthesised and force the ...
    • Large-Scale Atmospheric Circulation Variability and its Impacts on the Nordic Seas Ocean Climate - a Review. In: The Nordic Seas: An Integrated Perspective 

      Furevik, Tore; Nilsen, Jan Even Øie (Geophysical Monograph Series;158, Chapter, 2005)
      The large-scale atmospheric circulation and its impacts on the Nordic Seas ocean climate are reviewed. The dominant factors for the atmospheric variability are the Icelandic low and the Azores high, determining the strength ...
    • North Atlantic ocean circulation and decadal sea level change during the Altimetry era
