Variability at Ocean Weather Station M in the Norwegian Sea
(International Council for the Exploration of the Sea, 2003)
Time series of temperature and salinity from Ocean Weather Station M are analysed for periodic cycles of interannual to decadal scale. Time evolutions of the spectra show various spectral peaks at all depths, but none of ...
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 ...
Toward an optimal inversion method for synthetic aperture radar wind retrieval
(American Geophysical Union, 2002-08-01)
In recent years, particular efforts have been made to derive wind fields over the oceans from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. In contrast with the scatterometer, the SAR has a higher spatial resolution and therefore ...
Annual cycles of sea level and sea surface temperature in the western Mediterranean Sea
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-03-01)
In the western Mediterranean Sea, sea level variations are the result of seasonal steric effect, atmospheric forcing and mesoscale circulation activity, particularly in the Alboran and Algerian basins, as well as water ...

Observation and Simulation of Ice Tongues and Vortex Pairs in the Marginal Ice Zone
(American Geophysical Union, 1994)
Recognizes the major advancements of the past decade in understanding the interactions among the polar oceans and global atmospheric and oceanic systems. This volume addresses the following topics: Polar Ocean Circulation ...
Passive tracers and active dynamics - a model study of hydrography and circulation in the northern North Atlantic
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-08)
A long-standing problem in oceanography has been to understand the relationship between what can be measured in the ocean, such as hydrography, and what cannot, such as the strength and structure of the complete ...
Diagnosing ocean tracer transport from Sellafield and Dounreay by equivalent diffusion and age
(Science Press, 2008-09-27)
A simple approach for estimating the equivalent diffusion for diagnosing tracer transport is proposed. Two different expressions are derived; one is based directly on an analytical solution of the two-dimensional ...
Arctic sea ice and climate change - will the sea ice disappear in this century?
(Blackwell Scientific Publications, 2000)
High northern latitude surface air temperature: comparison of existing data and creation of a new gridded data set 1900–2000
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd., 2008-03)
Detection, attribution and understanding of temperature changes in the high northern latitudes depend on constraining uncertainties and resolving apparent discrepancies in observational data sets. We quantitatively compare ...
