Sequential data assimilation with a nonlinear quasi-geostrophic model using Monte Carlo methods to forecast error statistics
(American Geophysical Union, 1994-05-15)
A new sequential data assimilation method is discussed. It is based on forecasting the error statistics using Monte Carlo methods, a better alternative than solving the traditional and computationally extremely demanding ...
COASTWATCH´95: ERS 1/2 SAR detection of natural film on the ocean surface
(American Geophysical Union, 1998-10-15)
Ocean mesoscale phenomena such as eddies and current convergence zones can often be seen in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images due to characteristic patterns caused by natural film induced damping of the waves. Such ...
Changing accountability relations - the forgotten side of public sector reforms
(Stein Rokkan Centre for Social Studies, 2011-06)
In this paper we investigate how a major reform in the civil service changed accountability relationships. We seek to explain these changes using a transformative approach that combines structural, cultural and environmental ...
The Evolving Proteome of a Complex Extracellular Matrix, the Oikopleura House
(Public Library of Science, 2012-07-05)
<p>Extracellular matrices regulate biological processes at the level of cells, tissues, and in some cases, entire multicellular organisms. The subphylum Urochordata exemplifies the latter case, where animals are partially ...
Relation between the wind stress curl in the North Atlantic and the Atlantic inflow to the Nordic Seas
(American Geophysical Union, 2008-06-27)
In this study an isopycnic coordinate ocean model has been used to investigate the relationships between the North Atlantic wind stress curl (WSC) and the inflow of Atlantic water to the Nordic Seas. For the period ...
Intentional ethics and hermeneutics in the Libellus de symoniacis: Bruno of Segni as a papal polemicist
The Investiture Contest has at regular intervals been considered as a ‘revolution’, largely because it contributed forcefully to the reorganisation of the Church in the centuries to come. But the Contest has also been seen ...
Effects of diapycnal and isopycnal mixing on the ventilation of CFCs in the North Atlantic in an isopycnic coordinate OGCM
(Blackwell Munksgaard, 2003)
Simulated distributions of the chlorofluorocarbons CFC-11 and CFC-12 are used to examine the ventilation of the North Atlantic Ocean in a global version of the Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM). Three simulations ...
Advantages of a Machine-Readable Version of Wittgenstein's Nachlaß
