      Rapid Arctic warming drives profound change in the marine environment that have significant socio-economic impacts within the Arctic and beyond, including climate and weather hazards, food security, transportation, ...
    • Heat flux variations in the eastern Norwegian Atlantic Current toward 

      Orvik, Kjell Arild; Skagseth, Øystein (Geophysical Research Letters;32(2005) L14, Journal article, 2005-07-21)
    • 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 ...
    • The impact of the wind stress curl in the North Atlantic on the Atlantic inflow to the Norwegian Sea toward the Arctic 

      Orvik, Kjell Arild; Skagseth, Øystein (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2003-09-04)
      The Norwegian Atlantic Current (NwAC) through the Norwegian Sea serves as a conduit of warm and saline Atlantic water from the North Atlantic to the Arctic Ocean, an important factor for climate and ecology. In this study, ...
    • Mechanisms of Ocean Heat Anomalies in the Norwegian Sea 

      Asbjørnsen, Helene; Årthun, Marius; Skagseth, Øystein; Eldevik, Tor (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-04)
      Ocean heat content in the Norwegian Sea exhibits pronounced variability on interannual to decadal time scales. These ocean heat anomalies are known to influence Arctic sea ice extent, marine ecosystems, and continental ...
    • Mechanisms underlying recent Arctic atlantification 

      Asbjørnsen, Helene; Årthun, Marius; Skagseth, Øystein; Eldevik, Tor (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-06-20)
      Recent warming and reduced sea ice concentrations in the Atlantic sector of the Arctic Ocean are the main signatures of ongoing Arctic “Atlantification.” The mechanisms driving the warming trends are nevertheless still ...
    • Monitoring the Norwegian Atlantic slope current using a single moored current meter 

      Orvik, Kjell Arild; Skagseth, Øystein (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2003-01)
      Monitoring the Atlantic inflow (AI) of warm and saline water into the Nordic Seas (Norwegian, Greenland and Iceland Seas) is of great importance becauce of its impact on climate and ecology in Northern Europe and Arctic. ...
    • Monthly to annual variability of the Norwegian Atlantic slope current: connection between the northern North Atlantic and the Norwegian Sea 

      Skagseth, Øystein (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2004-03)
      This study investigated relations between direct current measurements in the Norwegian Atlantic slope current (NwASC), the sea surface height variability from the TOPEX altimeter, and reanalysed mean sea level pressure ...
    • One more step toward a warmer Arctic 

      Polyakov, Igor V.; Beszczynska-Möller, Agnieszka; Carmack, Eddy C.; Dmitreko, Igor A.; Fahrbach, E.; Frolov, Ivan E.; Gerdes, Rüdiger; Hansen, Edmond; Holfort, Jürgen; Ivanov, Vladimir V.; Johnson, Mark A.; Karcher, Michael; Kauker, Frank; Morison, James; Orvik, Kjell Arild; Schauer, Ursula; Simmons, Harper L.; Skagseth, Øystein; Sokolov, Vladimir T.; Steele, Michael; Timokhov, Leonid A.; Walsh, David; Walsh, John E. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2005-09-09)
      This study was motivated by a strong warming signal seen in mooring-based and oceanographic survey data collected in 2004 in the Eurasian Basin of the Arctic Ocean. The source of this and earlier Arctic Ocean changes lies ...
