• A 4.5 Year‐Long Record of Svalbard Water Vapor Isotopic Composition Documents Winter Air Mass Origin 

      Steen-Larsen, Hans Christian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      From May 2014 to September 2018, a laser spectrometer analyzer provided a 4.5 years continuous record of water vapor isotopic composition at Ny-Ålesund (8 m above sea level, a.s.l.), Svalbard. It corresponds to the longest ...
    • Meridional and vertical variations of the water vapour isotopic composition in the marine boundary layer over the Atlantic and Southern Ocean 

      Thurnherr, Iris; Kozachek, Anna V.; Graf, Pascal; Weng, Yongbiao; Bolshiyanov, Dimitri Yu.; Landwehr, Sebastian; Pfahl, Stephan; Schmale, Julia; Sodemann, Harald; Steen-Larsen, Hans Christian; Toffoli, Alessandro; Wernli, Heini; Aemisegger, Franziska (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Stable water isotopologues (SWIs) are useful tracers of moist diabatic processes in the atmospheric water cycle. They provide a framework to analyse moist processes on a range of timescales from large-scale moisture transport ...
    • Moisture origin as a driver of temporal variabilities of the water vapour isotopic composition in the Lena River delta, Siberia 

      Bonne, Jean-Louis; Meyer, Hanno; Behrens, Melanie; Boike, Julia; Kipfstuhl, Sepp; Rabe, Benjamin; Schmidt, Toni; Schönicke, Lutz; Steen-Larsen, Hans Christian; Werner, Martin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      In the context of the Arctic amplification of climate change affecting the regional atmospheric hydrological cycle, it is crucial to characterize the present-day moisture sources of the Arctic. The isotopic composition is ...
    • North Atlantic weather regimes in δ18O of winter precipitation: isotopic fingerprint of the response in the atmospheric circulation after volcanic eruptions 

      GudlaugsdOttir, Hera; Sjolte, Jesper; Sveinbjörnsdóttir, Árny Erla; Werner, Martin; Steen-Larsen, Hans Christian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Equatorial volcanic eruptions are known to impact the atmospheric circulation on seasonal time scales through a strengthening of the stratospheric zonal winds followed by dynamic ocean-atmosphere coupling. This emerges as ...
    • Resolving the controls of water vapour isotopes in the Atlantic sector 

      Bonne, Jean-Louis; Behrens, Melanie K.; Meyer, Hanno; Kipfstuhl, Sepp; Rabe, Benjamin; Schonicke, Lutz; Steen-Larsen, Hans Christian; Werner, Martin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-04-09)
      Stable water isotopes are employed as hydrological tracers to quantify the diverse implications of atmospheric moisture for climate. They are widely used as proxies for studying past climate changes, e.g., in isotope records ...
    • Retrieval of snow properties from the Sentinel-3 Ocean and Land Colour Instrument

(Journal article, 2019)
      The Sentinel Application Platform (SNAP) architecture facilitates Earth Observation data processing. In this work, we present results from a new Snow Processor for SNAP. We also describe physical principles behind the ...
