      Moreau, Sebastian; Hattermann, Tore; de Steur, Laura; Kauko, Hanna Maria; Ahonen, Heidi; Ardelan, Murat van; Assmy, Philipp; Chierici, Melissa; Descamps, Sebastien; Dinter, Tilman; Falkenhaug, Tone; Fransson, Agneta; Grønningsæter, Eirik; Hallfredsson, Elvar Halldor; Huhn, Oliver; Lebrun, Anais; Lowther, Andrew; Lübcker, Nico; Monteiro, Pedro; Peeken, Ilka; Roychoudhury, Alakendra; Różańska, Magdalena; Ryan-Keogh, Thomas; Sanchez Puerto, Nicolas; Singh, Asmita; Simonsen, Jan Henrik; Steiger, Nadine; Thomalla, Sandy J.; van Tonder, Andre; Wiktor, Josef M; Steen, Harald (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2023)
      The Southern Ocean is a major sink of anthropogenic CO2 and an important foraging area for top trophic level consumers. However, iron limitation sets an upper limit to primary productivity. Here we report on a considerably ...
    • Wind-Driven Variability in the Spitsbergen Polar Current and the Svalbard Branch Across the Yermak Plateau 

      Nilsen, Frank; Ersdal, Eli Anne; Skogseth, Ragnheid (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The Yermak Plateau (YP) acts as a guidance or barrier for the West Spitsbergen Current (WSC), which either crosses the plateau or flows around it to enter the Arctic Ocean. Closer to the West Spitsbergen coast, the Spitsbergen ...
    • Wind-Generated Waves in Fjords and Coastal Areas 

      Christakos, Konstantinos (Doctoral thesis, 2021-09-02)
      Accurate predictions of coastal and fjord wave conditions are vital for several sectors such as fish farming, fisheries, as well as coastal and maritime infrastructure. In complex coastlines such as the Norwegian coast ...
    • Winter circulation anomalies in 2009/10 & 2013/14, and associated forcing mechanisms 

      Asbjørnsen, Helene (Master thesis, 2016-05-31)
      Recent cases of severe winter weather in midlatitude regions have been linked to large-scale atmospheric circulation anomalies, but the physical mechanisms driving such anomalies are poorly understood. In this study the ...
    • Winter storms accelerate the demise of sea ice in the Atlantic Sector of the Arctic Ocean 

      Graham, Robert M.; Itkin, Polona; Meyer, Amelie; Sundfjord, Arild; Spreen, Gunnar; Smedsrud, Lars H.; Liston, Glen E.; Cheng, Bin; Cohen, Lana; Divine, Dmitry; Fer, Ilker; Fransson, Agneta; Gerland, Sebastian; Haapala, Jari; Hudson, Stephen R.; Johansson, Malin; King, Jennifer A.; Merkouriadi, Ioanna; Peterson, Algot Kristoffer; Provost, Christine; Randelhoff, Achim; Rinke, Annette; Rösel, Anja; Sennechael, Nathalie; Walden, Von P.; Duarte, Pedro; Assmy, Philipp; Steen, Harald; Granskog, Mats A. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-06-25)
      A large retreat of sea-ice in the ‘stormy’ Atlantic Sector of the Arctic Ocean has become evident through a series of record minima for the winter maximum sea-ice extent since 2015. Results from the Norwegian young sea ICE ...
    • Winter Vertical Diffusion Rates in the Arctic Ocean, Estimated From 7Be Measurements and Dissipation Rate Profiles 

      Schulz, K.; Kadko, D.; Mohrholz, V.; Stephens, M.; Fer, Ilker (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2023)
      Ocean turbulent mixing is a key process affecting the uptake and redistribution of heat, carbon, nutrients, oxygen and other dissolved gasses. Vertical turbulent diffusivity sets the rates of water mass transformations and ...
    • Wintertime cyclone/anticyclone activity over China and its relation to upper tropospheric jets 

      Chen, Lei; Tan, Benkui; Kvamstø, Nils Gunnar; Johannessen, Ola M. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-01-16)
      In this study, the wintertime cyclone/anticyclone activity and its variability over China are examined based on the National Centers for Environmental Prediction/National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCEP/NCAR) reanalysis ...
