  • Baroclinic Instability in the West Spitsbergen Current 

    Teigen, Sigurd Henrik; Nilsen, Frank; Skogseth, Ragnheid; Gjevik, Bjørn; Beszczynska-Möller, Agnieszka (2011-07-15)
    Baroclinic instability in the West Spitsbergen Current is investigated, based on data from an array of current meter moorings along 78.83oN, across the deeper (1000-2400 m) section of the continental slope west of Svalbard. ...
  • Mixing of the Storfjorden overflow (Svalbard Archipelago) inferred from denstity overturns 

    Fer, Ilker; Skogseth, Ragnheid; Haugan, Peter Mosby (American Geophysical Union, 2004-01-03)
    Observations were made of the dense overflow from Storfjorden from a survey conducted at closely spaced stations in August 2002. The field data set consists of conventional conductivity-temperature-depth profiles and ...
  • Observations of the Storfjorden overflow 

    Fer, Ilker; Skogseth, Ragnheid; Haugan, Peter Mosby (Elsevier, 2003)
    The mixing and spreading of the Storfjorden overflow were investigated with density and horizontal velocity profiles collected at closely spaced stations. The dense bottom water generated by strong winter cooling, enhanced ...
