• Barents Sea ice cover reflects Atlantic inflow 

      Årthun, Marius; Eldevik, Tor; Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Skagseth, Øystein (2011)
      The recent Arctic winter sea-ice retreat is most pronounced in the Barents Sea. Using available observations of the Atlantic inflow to the Barents Sea and results from a regional ice-ocean model we assess the role of ...
    • Climatic mean and interannual variation of northern Barents Sea water mass distribution and circulation. A combined study of ROMS, current and hydrography observations 

      Lind, Sigrid Gjessing (Master thesis, 2008-06-02)
      Evaluating current measurements, hydrography observations and model (ROMS) results of the northern Barents Sea, water mass distribution and circulation is investigated. Water mass exchange with the Arctic Ocean is linked ...
    • Dense water formation and circulation in the Barents Sea 

      Årthun, Marius; Ingvaldsen, Randi; Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Schrum, Corinna (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2011)
      Dense water masses from Arctic shelf seas are an important part of the Arctic thermohaline system. We present previously unpublished observations from shallow banks in the Barents Sea, which reveal large interannual ...
    • Skillful prediction of Barents Sea ice cover 

      Onarheim, Ingrid Husøy; Eldevik, Tor; Årthun, Marius; Ingvaldsen, Randi; Smedsrud, Lars Henrik (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-07-08)
      A main concern of present climate change is the Arctic sea ice cover. In wintertime, its observed variability is largely carried by the Barents Sea. Here we propose and evaluate a simple quantitative and prognostic framework ...
