  • Barents Sea ice cover reflects Atlantic inflow 

    Årthun, Marius; Eldevik, Tor; Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Skagseth, Øystein (The authors, 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 ...
  • A brief history of climate – the northern seas from the Last Glacial Maximum to global warming 

    Eldevik, Tor; Risebrobakken, Bjørg; Bjune, Anne Elisabeth; Andersson, Carin; Birks, Harry John Betteley; Dokken, Trond Martin; Drange, Helge; Glessmer, Mirjam Sophia; Li, Camille; Nilsen, Jan Even Øie; Otterå, Odd Helge; Richter, Kristin; Skagseth, Øystein (Elsevier, 2014-12)
    The understanding of climate and climate change is fundamentally concerned with two things: a well-defined and sufficiently complete climate record to be explained, for example of observed temperature, and a relevant ...
  • Heat flux variations in the eastern Norwegian Atlantic Current toward 

    Orvik, Kjell Arild; Skagseth, Øystein (American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-21)
  • Heat in the Barents Sea: Transport, storage, and surface fluxes 

    Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Ingvaldsen, Randi; Nilsen, Jan Even Øie; Skagseth, Øystein (Copernicus Publications, 2010-01-11)
    A column model is set up for the Barents Sea to explore sensitivity of surface fluxes and heat storage from varying ocean heat transport. Mean monthly ocean transport and atmospheric forcing are synthesised and force the ...
  • The impact of the wind stress curl in the North Atlantic on the Atlantic inflow to the Norwegian Sea toward the Arctic 

    Orvik, Kjell Arild; Skagseth, Øystein (American Geophysical Union, 2003-09-04)
    The Norwegian Atlantic Current (NwAC) through the Norwegian Sea serves as a conduit of warm and saline Atlantic water from the North Atlantic to the Arctic Ocean, an important factor for climate and ecology. In this ...
  • Monitoring the Norwegian Atlantic slope current using a single moored current meter 

    Orvik, Kjell Arild; Skagseth, Øystein (Elsevier, 2003-01)
    Monitoring the Atlantic inflow (AI) of warm and saline water into the Nordic Seas (Norwegian, Greenland and Iceland Seas) is of great importance becauce of its impact on climate and ecology in Northern Europe and Arctic. ...
  • Monthly to annual variability of the Norwegian Atlantic slope current: connection between the northern North Atlantic and the Norwegian Sea 

    Skagseth, Øystein (Elsevier, 2004-03)
    This study investigated relations between direct current measurements in the Norwegian Atlantic slope current (NwASC), the sea surface height variability from the TOPEX altimeter, and reanalysed mean sea level pressure ...
  • One more step toward a warmer Arctic 

    Polyakov, Igor V.; Beszczynska-Möller, Agnieszka; Carmack, Eddy C.; Dmitreko, Igor A.; Fahrbach, E.; Frolov, Ivan E.; Gerdes, Rüdiger; Hansen, Edmond; Holfort, Jürgen; Ivanov, Vladimir V.; Johnson, Mark A.; Karcher, Michael; Kauker, Frank; Morison, James; Orvik, Kjell Arild; Schauer, Ursula; Simmons, Harper L.; Skagseth, Øystein; Sokolov, Vladimir T.; Steele, Michael; Timokhov, Leonid A.; Walsh, David; Walsh, John E. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-09-09)
    This study was motivated by a strong warming signal seen in mooring-based and oceanographic survey data collected in 2004 in the Eurasian Basin of the Arctic Ocean. The source of this and earlier Arctic Ocean changes lies ...
