  • Knudsen, Erlend Moster (Journal article, WileyAmerican Geophysical Union, 2015-04-16)
    The Arctic sea ice retreat has accelerated over the last decade. The negative trend is largest in summer, but substantial interannual variability still remains. Here we explore observed atmospheric conditions and feedback ...
  • Knudsen, Erlend Moster (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2015-03-20)
    Warming twice as fast as the rest of the globe, the northern high-latitudes arguably show the clearest evidences of observed and projected climate changes. Two of these are the rapid loss of Arctic sea ice and the ...
  • Reeve, Mathew Alexander (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2015-02-13)
    People of Bangladesh depend on the monsoon, and many of them depend on the timing of the monsoon onset for their livelihoods. In this study, we are motivated by the idea of providing information to these people about ...
  • George, Mary Swapna (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2015-01-19)
    Coastal upwelling regions are among world´s most productive areas, with high levels of primary productivity and fishery potentials. The southwest coast of India is a classic example of such an upwelling system during the ...
  • Aarnes, Ole Johan (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2015-01-16)
    Wind generated surface waves represent a critical factor for offshore constructions and coastal development, and are highly relevant in scientific questions related to climate and weather. The sea state can be described ...
  • Aarnes, Ole Johan; Abdalla, Saleh; Bidlot, Jean-Raymond; Breivik, Øyvind (Journal article, American Meteorological Society, 2015-01-15)
    Trends in marine wind speed and significant wave height are investigated using the global reanalysis ERA-Interim over the period 1979–2012, based on monthly-mean and monthly-maximum data. Besides the traditional reanalysis, ...
  • Knudsen, Erlend Moster; Walsh, J. E. (Journal article, Copernicus Publications, 2014-12-16)
    Metrics of storm activity in Northern Hemisphere high- and midlatitudes are evaluated from historical output and future projections by the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM1-M) coupled global climate model. The European ...
  • Eldevik, Tor; Risebrobakken, Bjørg; Bjune, Anne Elisabeth; Andersson, Carin; Birks, Harry John Betteley; Dokken, Trond Martin; Drange, Helge; Glessmer, Mirjam Sophia; Li, Camille; Nilsen, Jan Even Øie; Otterå, Odd Helge; Richter, Kristin; Skagseth, Øystein (Journal article, Elsevier, 2014-12)
    The understanding of climate and climate change is fundamentally concerned with two things: a well-defined and sufficiently complete climate record to be explained, for example of observed temperature, and a relevant ...
  • Gao, Yongqi; Sun, Jianqi; Li, Fei; He, Shengping; Sandven, Stein; Yan, Qing; Zhang, Zhongshi; Lohmann, Katja; Keenlyside, Noel; Furevik, Tore; Suo, Lingling (Journal article, Science Press, 2014-11-28)
    The Arctic plays a fundamental role in the climate system and has shown significant climate change in recent decades, including the Arctic warming and decline of Arctic sea-ice extent and thickness. In contrast to the ...
  • Parding, Kajsa (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2014-11-28)
    Shortwave (SW) radiation from the Sun is the external energy source on Earth and the fundamental input of energy into the climate system. Variations of the SW radiation and its transfer through the atmosphere can have ...
  • Terpstra, Annick (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2014-11-25)
    This thesis consists of a collection of scientific publications addressing dynamical aspects of the formation and intensification of polar lows. Polar lows are small scale, intense, short-lived cyclones developing over ...
  • Lotsberg, Emilie Otilde (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2014-10-22)
    There is strong observational support for two significant warming episodes of the North Atlantic Subpolar Gyre (SPG), one starting in the mid 1920s the other in the mid 1990s. Possible mechanisms responsible for the two ...
  • Lothon, Marie; Louhou, Fabienne; Pino, David; Couvreux, Fleur; Pardyjak, Erik; Reuder, Joachim; Vilà-Guerau De Arellano, Jordi; Durand, Pierre; Hartogensis, Oscar K.; Legain, Dominique; Augustin, Patrick V.; Gioli, Beniamino; Lenschow, Donald H.; Faloona, Ian C.; Yagüe, Carlos; Alexander, Daniel C.; Angevine, Wayne M.; Bargain, Erwan; Barrié, Joël; Bazile, Eric; Bezombes, Yannick; Blay-Carreras, Estel; Van De Boer, Anneke; Boichard, Jean Luc; Bourdon, Anne; Butet, Alain; Campistron, Bernard A.; De Coster, Olivier; Cuxart, Joan; Dabas, Alain M.; Darbieu, Clara; Deboudt, Karine; Delbarre, Hervé; Derrien, Solène; Flament, Pascal; Fourmentin, Marc; Garai, Anirban; Gibert, Fabien; Graf, Alexander T.; Gröbner, Julian; Guichard, Françoise; Jiménez, Mantonia Antonia; Jonassen, Marius Opsanger; Van Den Kroonenberg, Aline C.; Magliulo, Vincenzo; Martin, Sabrina; Martinez, Daniel; Mastrorillo, Laurence; Moene, Arnold F.; Molinos, Francisco Lendinez; Moulin, Emilie; Pietersen, Henk P.; Piguet, Bruno; Pique, Eric; Román-Cascón, Carlos; Rufin-Soler, Caroline; Saïd, Frédérique; Sastre-Marugán, Mariano; Seity, Yann; Steeneveld, Gert Jan; Toscano, Piero; Traullé, Olivier; Tzanos, Diane; Wacker, Stefan; Wildmann, Norman; Zaldei, Alessandro (Journal article, Copernicus Publications, 2014-10-16)
    Due to the major role of the sun in heating the earth's surface, the atmospheric planetary boundary layer over land is inherently marked by a diurnal cycle. The afternoon transition, the period of the day that connects the ...
  • Hattermann, Tore; Smedsrud, Lars H.; Nøst, Ole Anders; Lilly, Jonathan M.; Galton-Fenzi, Ben K. (Journal article, Elsevier, 2014-10)
    Melting at the base of floating ice shelves is a dominant term in the overall Antarctic mass budget. This study applies a high-resolution regional ice shelf/ocean model, constrained by observations, to (i) quantify present ...
