  • Application of a hybrid EnKF-OI to ocean forecasting 

    Counillon, François; Sakov, Pavel; Bertino, Laurent (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2009-10-01)
    Data assimilation methods often use an ensemble to represent the background error covariance. Two approaches are commonly used; a simple one with a static ensemble, or a more advanced one with a dynamic ensemble. The latter ...

  • The Atlantic Water flow along the Vøring Plateau: Detecting frontal structures in oceanic station time series 

    Nilsen, Jan Even Øie; Nilsen, Frank (Elsevier, 2007-01-13)
    The topographic steering of the baroclinic western branch of the Norwegian Atlantic Current (NwAC) determines the extent of Atlantic Water and location of the Arctic Front in the Nordic Seas. In this paper the geographical ...

  • 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 ...

  • Change and variation in a hyer-arid cultural landscape: A merhodological approach using remote sensing timeseries (Landsat MSS and TM, 1973-1996) from the Wadi vegetation of the eastern desert of Egypt 

    Andersen, Gidske L. (The University of Bergen, 1999)
    Nine wadi localities in a hyper-arid environment have been registered in the field and studied using earth observation data. Branch height, crown – and trunk – diameter, and indicators of land-use such as present traces ...

  • Changes in the properties and distribution of the intermediate and deep waters in the Fram Strait 

    Langehaug, Helene Reinertsen; Falck, Eva (Elsevier, 2012-04)
    The Fram Strait is the only deep connection between the Arctic Ocean and the Nordic Seas (Greenland, Iceland, and Norwegian Seas), with a sill depth of approximately 2600 m. Consequently, observations from this area ...

  • Characterizing chaotic dispersion in a coastal tidal model 

    Orre, Steinar; Gjevik, Bjørn; LaCasce, Joseph H. (Elsevier, 2006-07-03)
    Abstract Diverse Lagrangian methods are used to study dispersion and mixing in a model in the Norwegian Trondheim fjord. We focus on the tidally driven currents, neglecting wind-forcing, and generate a large number of ...
  • Circulation and transformation of Atlantic and Arctic water masses in climate models 

    Langehaug, Helene Reinertsen (The University of Bergen, 2011-12-09)
    Ocean heat transport and associated heat loss to the atmosphere contributes significantly to the anomalously mild climate of northwestern Europe and its variability. In this thesis, the circulation and transformation of ...
