(Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-01-19)
      The Arctic icescape is rapidly transforming from a thicker multiyear ice cover to a thinner and largely seasonal first-year ice cover with significant consequences for Arctic primary production. One critical challenge is ...
    • Nutrients vs. turbulence, and the future of Arctic Ocean primary production 

      Randelhoff, Achim; Sundfjord, Arild; Fer, Ilker; Reigstad, Marit; Tremblay, Jean-Eric; Guthrie, John D. (Conference object, 2016)
    • One-dimensional evolution of the upper water column in the Atlantic sector of the Arctic Ocean in winter 

      Fer, Ilker; Peterson, Algot Kristoffer; Randelhoff, Achim; Meyer, Amelie (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-03)
      A one-dimensional model is employed to reproduce the observed time evolution of hydrographic properties in the upper water column during winter, between 26 January and 11 March 2015, in a region north of Svalbard in the ...
    • Turbulent heat and momentum fluxes in the upper ocean under Arctic sea ice 

      Peterson, Algot Kristoffer; Fer, Ilker; McPhee, Miles G.; Randelhoff, Achim (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-02)
      We report observations of heat and momentum fluxes measured in the ice-ocean boundary layer from four drift stations between January and June 2015, covering from the typical Arctic basin conditions in the Nansen Basin to ...
    • Turbulent upper-ocean mixing affected by meltwater layers during Arctic summer 

      Randelhoff, Achim; Fer, Ilker; Sundfjord, Arild (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-04)
      Every summer, intense sea ice melt around the margins of the Arctic pack ice leads to a stratified surface layer, potentially without a traditional surface mixed layer. The associated strengthening of near-surface ...
    • Vertical fluxes of nitrate in the seasonal nitracline of the Atlantic sector of the Arctic Ocean 

      Randelhoff, Achim; Fer, Ilker; Sundfjord, Arild; Tremblay, Jean-Éric; Reigstad, Marit (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-07)
      This study compiles colocated oceanic observations of high-resolution vertical profiles of nitrate concentration and turbulent microstructure around the Svalbard shelf slope, covering both the permanently ice-free Fram ...
    • 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 ...
