  • Evaluating two numerical advection schemes in HYCOM for eddy-resolving modelling of the Agulhas Current 

    Backeberg, Bjørn C.; Bertino, Laurent; Johannessen, Johnny A. (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2009-06-02)
    A 4th order advection scheme is applied in a nested eddy-resolving Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) of the greater Agulhas Current system for the purpose of testing advanced numerics as a means for improving the model ...

  • The greater Agulhas Current system: an integrated study of its mesoscale variability 

    Backeberg, Bjørn C.; Johannessen, Johnny A.; Bertino, Laurent; Reason, Chris J.C. (The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST), 2008-02)
    For the purpose of developing an operational oceanography system for the greater Agulhas Current regime, a high resolution Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) has been set in a nested configuration. The intense and complex ...

  • Mesoscale variability study of the Agulhas Current from satellite radar altimetry and a high resolution model 

    Backeberg, Bjørn C. (The University of Bergen, 2006-06)
    Towards understanding the dynamics and eddy evolving processes in the greater Agulhas Current system, a Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) system has been set up to simulation the ocean circulation around Southern ...

  • Modes of the southern extension of the East Madagascar Current 

    Siedler, G.; Rouault, M.; Biastoch, A.; Backeberg, Bjørn C.; Reason, Chris J.C.; Lutjeharms, J. R. E. (2008-11-04)
    Data sets from satellite observations and a nested high‐resolution model are used to study a source region of the Agulhas Current. Altimeter‐derived geostrophic surface currents are averaged over varying periods, providing ...
