• Atlantic-Origin Overflow Water in the East Greenland Current 

      Håvik, Lisbeth; Almansi, Mattia; Våge, Kjetil; Haine, Thomas W.N. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Dense water masses transported southward along the east coast of Greenland in the East Greenland Current (EGC) form the largest contribution to the Denmark Strait Overflow. When exiting Denmark Strait these dense water ...
    • A combined stokes drift profile under swell and wind sea 

      Breivik, Øyvind; Christensen, Kai Håkon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      A combined directional Stokes drift profile for swell and wind sea is presented. The profile can be used to calculate the shear under crossing seas and as such is relevant for Langmuir turbulence and Stokes–Coriolis forcing, ...
    • Data availability principles and practice 

      Smith, J. A.; Cessi, P.; Fer, Ilker; Foltz, G.; Fox-Kemper, Baylor; Heywood, Karen; Jones, N.; Klymak, Jody; Lacasce, Joseph Henry (Journal article, 2020)
    • The dissipation of kinetic energy in the Lofoten Basin Eddy 

      Fer, Ilker; Bosse, Anthony; Ferron, Bruno; Bouruet-Aubertot, Pascale (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-06)
      Ocean microstructure, current, and hydrography observations from June 2016 are used to characterize the turbulence structure of the Lofoten Basin eddy (LBE), a long-lived anticyclone in the Norwegian Sea. The LBE had an ...
    • Dissipation of turbulent kinetic energy inferred from Seagliders: an application to the eastern Nordic Seas overflows 

      Beaird, Nicholas; Fer, Ilker; Rhines, Peter B.; Eriksen, Charles (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012-12)
      Turbulent mixing is an important process controlling the descent rate, water mass modification, and volume transport augmentation due to entrainment in the dense overflows across the Greenland–Scotland Ridge. These overflows, ...
    • The Emergence of the North Icelandic Jet and Its Evolution from Northeast Iceland to Denmark Strait 

      Semper, Stefanie; Våge, Kjetil; Pickart, Robert S.; Valdimarsson, Hedinn; Torres, Daniel J.; Jónsson, Steingrímur (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      The North Icelandic Jet (NIJ) is an important source of dense water to the overflow plume passing through Denmark Strait. The properties, structure, and transport of the NIJ are investigated for the first time along its ...
    • Loop current variability as trigger of coherent gulf stream transport anomalies 

      Hirschi, Joël J.-M.; Frajka-Williams, Eleanor; Blaker, Adam T; Sinha, Bablu; Coward, Andrew; Hyder, Pat; Biastoch, Arne; Böning, Claus; Barnier, Bernard; Penduff, Thierry; Garcia, Ixetl; Fransner, Filippa; Madec, Gurvan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Satellite observations and output from a high-resolution ocean model are used to investigate how the Loop Current in the Gulf of Mexico affects the Gulf Stream transport through the Florida Straits. We find that the expansion ...
    • Near-inertial mixing in the central Arctic Ocean 

      Fer, Ilker (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-08)
      Observations were made in April 2007 of horizontal currents, hydrography, and shear microstructure in the upper 500 m from a drifting ice camp in the central Arctic Ocean. An approximately 4-day-long time series, collected ...
    • On the Dynamics and Water Mass Transformation of a Boundary Current Connecting Alpha and Beta Oceans 

      Lambert, Erwin; Eldevik, Tor; Spall, Michael A. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-10-19)
      A subpolar marginal sea, like the Nordic seas, is a transition zone between the temperature-stratified subtropics (the alpha ocean) and the salinity-stratified polar regions (the beta ocean). An inflow of Atlantic Water ...
    • 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 ...
    • Variability and mixing of the Filchner overflow plume on the continental slope,Weddell Sea 

      Daae, Kjersti; Fer, Ilker; Darelius, Elin Maria K. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-01)
      A large fraction of Antarctic Bottom Water is produced in the Weddell Sea, through mixing between the cold and dense shelf water masses and the warm and saline off-shelf water. We present observations of the dense Filchner ...
    • Water mass transformation in the Greenland Sea during the period 1986-2016 

      Brakstad, Ailin; Våge, Kjetil; Håvik, Lisbeth; Moore, G.W.K. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-01)
      Hydrographic measurements from ships, autonomous profiling floats, and instrumented seals over the period 1986–2016 are used to examine the temporal variability in open-ocean convection in the Greenland Sea during winter. ...
