    Dølven, Knut Ola (The University of Bergen, 2015-05-04)
    Salinity measurements have been used to calculate the freshwater content in Hornsund for the years 2001 to 2014. In 2011 there was significantly higher freshwater content in the fjord, compared to the other years, with a ...
  • Numerical modelling of the sub-surface melting of marine-terminating glaciers in Arctic fjords 

    Kalhagen, Kjersti (The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)

  • The linear stationary wave response to Arctic amplification related heating 

    Sellevold, Raymond (The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)

    Arnalds, Olafur; Ólafsson, Haraldur; Dagsson-Waldhauserova, Pavla (Copernicus PublicationsEuropean Geosciences Union, 2014-12-02)
    Iceland has extremely active dust sources that result in large-scale emissions and deposition on land and at sea. The dust has a volcanogenic origin of basaltic composition with about 10% Fe content. We used two independent ...

    The monsoon onset is a critical event in the Bangladesh calendar, especially for the domestic agricultural sector. Providing information about the monsoon onset for the past, present, and future has potential benefit for ...
  • A Diagnostic Diagram to Understand Atmosphere-ocean Dynamics in the Southern North Sea at High Wind Spe 

    Kettle, Anthony (Elsevier, 2014)
    Long time series of offshore meteorological measurements in the lower marine atmospheric boundary layer show dynamical regimes and variability that are forced partly by interaction with the underlying sea surface and partly ...
  • Warming of Atlantic Water in two west Spitsbergen fjords over the last century (1912-2009) 

    Pavlov, Alexey K.; Tverberg, Vigdis; Ivanov, Boris; Nilsen, Frank; Falk-Petersen, Stig; Granskog, Mats A. (Co-Action PublishingNorwegian Polar Institute, 2013-05-06)
    The recently observed warming of west Spitsbergen fjords has led to anomalous sea-ice conditions and has implications for the marine ecosystem. We investigated long-term trends of maximum temperature of Atlantic Water (AW) ...
