Remote sensing of sea ice
Seasonal to Decadal Temperature Variations in the Faroe-Shetland Inflow Waters
(American Geophysical Union, 2005)
A 53 years hind-cast simulation with a regional version of the Nansen Center version of the Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM) has been conducted to explore the nature of the observed seasonal to inter-annual ...
Annual carbon fluxes in the upper Greenland Sea based on measurements and a box-model approach
Measurements of nitrate and the carbonate system parameters performed mainly from 1993 to 1997 have been used to estimate the evolution of the concentration fields over the year in the surface and underlying waters of ...
An intercomparison between the surface heat flux feedback in five coupled models, COADS and the NCEP reanalysis
(Springer Verlag, 2004-04)
The surface heat ﬂux feedback is estimated in the Atlantic and the extra-tropical Indo-Paciﬁc, using monthly heat ﬂux and sea surface temperature anomaly data from control simulations with ﬁve global climate models, and ...
On the effect of a sill on dense water formation in a marginal sea
(Sears Foundation for Marine Research/Yale University, 2008-05)
The properties of water mass transformation in a semi-enclosed basin, separated from the open ocean by a sill and subject to surface cooling, are analyzed both theoretically and numerically using an ocean general circulation ...
Transient response of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation to enhanced freshwater input to the Nordic Seas–Arctic Ocean in the Bergen Climate Model
The transient response of the climate system to anomalously large freshwater input to the high latitude seas is examined using the newly developed Bergen Climate Model. A 150-yr twin-experiment has been carried out, ...
Microwave Study programs of Air-Ice-Ocean interactive processes in the Seasonal Ice Zone of the Greenland and Barents Seas
(American Geophysical Union, 1992)
Describes the use of satellite ice data into a working technology for the satellite data sets of the recent past and immediate future. Chapters cover basic observations, modeling, geophysical interpretation, and using data ...
The Atlantic Water flow along the Vøring Plateau: Detecting frontal structures in oceanic station time series
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 ...
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
(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 ...
Evaluating two numerical advection schemes in HYCOM for eddy-resolving modelling of the Agulhas Current
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2009-06-02)
A 4th order advection scheme is applied in a nested eddy-resolving Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) of the greater Agulhas Current system for the purpose of testing advanced numerics as a means for improving the model ...
