    • Lofoten eddies observed by Seagliders 

      Løvseth, Hauk Morten (Master thesis, 2018-11-22)
      When the Norwegian Atlantic Current passes the Lofoten Basin, it loses a large amount of mass and heat to mesoscale eddies as a result of instabilities of the mean current along the Norwegian Slope. The eddies subsequently ...
