• Dynamical Perspectives on the Formation and Intensification of Polar Lows 

      Terpstra, Annick (Doctoral thesis, 2014-11-25)
      This thesis consists of a collection of scientific publications addressing dynamical aspects of the formation and intensification of polar lows. Polar lows are small scale, intense, short-lived cyclones developing over ...
    • An evaluation of surface meteorology and fluxes over the Iceland and Greenland Seas in ERA5 reanalysis: The impact of sea ice distribution 

      Renfrew, Ian A.; Barrell, C.; Elvidge, A.D.; Brooke, J.K.; Duscha, Christiane; King, J.C.; Kristiansen, Jørn; Cope, T. Lachlan; Moore, George William Kent; Pickart, Robert S.; Reuder, Joachim; Sandu, I.; Sergeev, Denis; Terpstra, Annick; Våge, Kjetil; Weiss, A. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The Iceland and Greenland Seas are a crucial region for the climate system, being the headwaters of the lower limb of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation. Investigating the atmosphere–ocean–ice processes in ...

      The Iceland Greenland Seas Project (IGP) is a coordinated atmosphere–ocean research program investigating climate processes in the source region of the densest waters of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation. ...
    • Polar lows – moist-baroclinic cyclones developing in four different vertical wind shear environments 

      Stoll, Patrick; Spengler, Thomas; Terpstra, Annick; Graversen, Rune (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Polar lows are intense mesoscale cyclones that develop in polar marine air masses. Motivated by the large variety of their proposed intensification mechanisms, cloud structure, and ambient sub-synoptic environment, we use ...
