On the Nordic Seas’ role in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation
(The University of Bergen, 2007-06-27)
In the present climate, the North Atlantic thermohaline circulation (THC) plays a fundamental role in the global transport of heat at high latitudes. The response of the North Atlantic Ocean-Nordic Seas THC to surface ...
Cover ERS-1/2 SAR monitoring of dangerous ice phenomena along the western part of Northern Sea Route
(Taylor & Francis, 1997-08-01)
Simulated variability of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation
(Springer Verlag, 2004-04-17)
To examine the multi-annual to decadal scale variability of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), a four-member ensemble with a daily reanalysis forced, medium-resolution global version of the isopycnic ...
The greater Agulhas Current system: an integrated study of its mesoscale variability
(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 ...
Pathways and export of Greenland Sea Water. In: The Nordic Seas: an integrated perspective
(American Geophysical Union, 2005)
Greenland Sea Odden sea ice feature: Intra-annual and interannual variability
(American Geophysical Union, 1998-06-15)
The “Odden” is a large sea ice feature that forms in the east Greenland Sea that may protrude eastward to 5 °E from the main sea ice pack (at about 8 °W) between 73° and 77 °N. It generally forms at the beginning of the ...
Modeling the middle Pliocene climate with a global atmospheric general circulation model
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-27)
A new climate simulation for the middle Pliocene (ca. 3 Ma BP) is performed by a global grid-point atmospheric general circulation model developed at the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP AGCM) with boundary conditions ...
Earth science – oceanography
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2002)
Satellite oceanography began with the Gemini XII flight in November 1966. From a Hasselblad camera mounted in the pilot’s window large internal waves in the eastern tropical Atlantic were photographed via sunglitter for ...
Sensitivity of simulated wintertime Arctic atmosphere to vertical resolution in the ARPEGE/IFS model
(Springer Verlag, 2007-10-16)
The current state of the art general circulation models, including several of those used by the IPCC, show considerable disagreement in simulating present day high latitude climate. This is of major concern and reduces the ...
Observations of highly regular oscillations in the overflow plume downstream of the Faroe Bank Channel
The Faroe Bank Channel (FBC) is the deepest connection between the Atlantic Ocean and the Nordic Seas. This work describes the dynamic properties of the plume of dense overflow water descending from the Faroe Bank ...
