• Coastal submesoscale processes and their effect on phytoplankton distribution in the southeastern Bay of Biscay 

      Rodriguez, Xabier Davila; Rubio, Anna; Artigas, Luis Felipe; Puillat, Ingrid; Manso-Narvarte, Ivan; Lazure, Pascal; Caballero, Ainhoa (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Submesoscale processes have a determinant role in the dynamics of oceans by transporting momentum, heat, mass, and particles. Furthermore, they can define niches where different phytoplankton species flourish and accumulate ...
    • The mesoscale eddy field in the Lofoten Basin from high-resolution Lagrangian simulations 

      Dugstad, Johannes Sandanger; Isachsen, Pål Erik; Fer, Ilker (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Warm Atlantic-origin waters are modified in the Lofoten Basin in the Nordic Seas on their way toward the Arctic. An energetic eddy field redistributes these waters in the basin. Retained for extended periods, the warm ...
    • Norwegian Atlantic Slope Current along the Lofoten Escarpment 

      Fer, Ilker; Bosse, Anthony; Dugstad, Johannes Sandanger (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-06)
      Observations from moored instruments are analyzed to describe the Norwegian Atlantic Slope Current at the Lofoten Escarpment (13∘ E, 69∘ N). The data set covers a 14-month period from June 2016 to September 2017 and resolves ...
    • A revised ocean glider concept to realize Stommel's vision and supplement Argo floats 

      Bruvik, Erik Magnus; Fer, Ilker; Våge, Kjetil; Haugan, Peter M. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-02)
      This paper revisits Stommel's vision for a global glider network and the Argo design specification. A concept of floats with wings, so-called slow underwater gliders, is explored. An analysis of the energy or power consumption ...
