Future climate change: Modeling and scenarios for the Arctic
Inception of the Northern European Ice Sheet due to contrasting ocean and insolation forcing
About 115,000 years ago the last interglacial reached its terminus and nucleation of new ice sheet growth was initiated. Evidence from the northernmost Nordic Seas indicate that the inception of the last glacial was ...
Tracer-derived transit time of the waters in the eastern Nordic Seas
(Blackwell Munksgaard, 2005-08-25)
The spatial-temporal distribution of the anthropogenic radionuclide 137Cs originating from nuclear bomb testing and the Sellafield reprocessing plant in the Irish Sea is simulated using a global version of the Miami Isopycnic ...
Two-phase, near-field modeling of purposefully released CO2 in the ocean
(American Geophysical Union, 2001-01-15)
The sensitivity of the present day Atlantic meriodinal overturning circulation to freshwater forcing
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-09-09)
Mounting evidence indicates that the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) was strongly reduced during cold climate episodes in the past, possible due to freshwater influx from glacial melting. It is also ...
Mesoscale Eddies Are Oases for Higher Trophic Marine Life
(Public Library of Science, 2012-01-17)
<p>Mesoscale eddies stimulate biological production in the ocean, but knowledge of energy transfers to higher trophic levels within eddies remains fragmented and not quantified. Increasing the knowledge base is constrained ...
Effects of solar irradiance forcing on the ocean circulation and sea-ice in the North Atlantic in an isopycnic coordinate ocean general circulation model
The sensitivity of the ocean circulation to changes in solar irradiance is examined using an isopycnic coordinate, global ocean general circulation model (OGCM) coupled to a thermodynamic/dynamic sea-ice model. In the ...
Sensitivity of remote sensing – derived phytoplankton productivity to mixed layer depth: Lessons from the carbon-based productivity model
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-10-01)
Mixed layer depth (MLD) has long been recognized as having an important influence on underwater light budget and, thus, net primary productivity (NPP) of phytoplankton. The depth- and wavelength-integrated carbon-based ...
Coastal wind field retrievals from ERS synthetic aperture radar images
(American Geophysical Union, 1998-04-15)
A unique series of European Remote Sensing Satellite (ERS) 1 and 2 C band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images was obtained off the southern coast of Norway during the Coast Watch’95 experiment in September 1995. In this ...
Changes in the properties and distribution of the intermediate and deep waters in the Fram Strait
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 ...
