  • Viste, Ellen Marie; Sorteberg, Asgeir (Journal article, Royal Meteorological Society, 2013-01)
    The Ethiopian summer rains occur as air masses of various origins converge above the Ethiopian plateau. In this study, the relative importance of different moisture transport branches has been estimated using the Lagrangian ...
  • Orvik, Kjell Arild; Skagseth, Øystein (Journal article; Peer reviewed, Elsevier, 2003-01)
    Monitoring the Atlantic inflow (AI) of warm and saline water into the Nordic Seas (Norwegian, Greenland and Iceland Seas) is of great importance becauce of its impact on climate and ecology in Northern Europe and Arctic. ...
  • Medhaug, Iselin; Furevik, Tore (Peer reviewed; Journal article, The University of Bergen, 2011-06-06)
    Output from a total of 24 state-of-the-art Atmosphere-Ocean General Circulation Models is analyzed. The models were integrated with observed forcing for the period 1850–2000 as part of the Intergovernmental Panel on ...
  • Medhaug, Iselin (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2011-05-06)
    Global atmosphere-ocean general circulation models have been used to investigate mechanisms controlling the North Atlantic low-frequency variability, with the focus on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, the ...
  • Kuzmina, Svetlana I.; Bengtsson, Lennart; Johannessen, Ola M.; Drange, Helge; Bobylev, Leonid P.; Miles, Martin W. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, American Geophysical Union, 2005-02-17)
    The results of 12 coupled climate models participating in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP2) are compared together with observational data in order to investigate: 1) How the current generation of climate ...
  • Boulaenko, Mikhail E. (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2002)
    It’s first part describes the noise performances of an inexpensive instrument for seismic data collection; the geophone-based seismograph used in the SEIS-SCHOOL network and now called Cossac Ranger. The analysis of its ...
  • Harms, I. H.; Schrum, Corinna; Hatten, K. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, American Geophysical Union, 2005-06-03)
    The Barents Sea is a key region in the North Atlantic/Arctic Ocean climate system because of the intense ocean-atmosphere heat exchange and the formation of sea ice. The latter process is connected with salt input, so-called ...
  • Rögnvaldsson, Ólafur (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2013-02-08)
  • Wittrup, Line (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2005)
  • Teigen, Roar (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2005)
  • Fer, Ilker; Skogseth, Ragnheid; Haugan, Peter Mosby (Journal article; Peer reviewed, Elsevier, 2003)
    The mixing and spreading of the Storfjorden overflow were investigated with density and horizontal velocity profiles collected at closely spaced stations. The dense bottom water generated by strong winter cooling, enhanced ...
  • Haugan, Peter Mosby; Brewer, Peter G.; Peltzer, Edward T.; Walz, Peter; Aya, Izuo; Yamane, Kenji; Kojima, Ryuji; Nakajima, Yasuharu; Nakayama, Noriko; Hove, Joakim; Johannessen, Truls; Bellerby, Richard G. J.; Alendal, Guttorm (Journal article, Elsevier, 2005)
    Observations from small-scale (20 to 90 litres) CO2 experiments conducted off the coast of California at 684 m depth and at 3942 m depth are discussed. In both experiments, when the seawater velocity was sufficiently strong, ...
  • Omer, Waleed Mahmood M. Ahme (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2010-06-01)
    The CO2 increase in the ocean due to uptake of anthropogenic CO2 and the companying lowering of ocean pH is of major concern. In this study we investigated the variability of CO2 system parameters, focusing particularly ...
  • Born, Andreas (Doctoral thesis, The University of Bergen, 2010-09-24)
    Combining a hierarchy of climate models of varying complexity with marine proxy data, we show that the North Atlantic surface circulation played an important role for the climate of the Eemian and the last glacial ...
  • Holbrook, W. Steven; Fer, Ilker (Journal article; Peer reviewed, American Geophysical Union, 2005-08-06)
    Internal waves affect many important dynamical processes in the ocean, but in situ observations of internal waves are infrequent and spatially sparse. Here we show that remote sensing of internal waves by marine seismic ...
  • Caldeira, Ken; Akai, Makoto; Brewer, Peter G.; Chen, Baixin; Haugan, Peter Mosby; Iwama, Toru; Johnston, Paul; Kheshgi, Haroon; Li, Qingquan; Ohsumi, Takashi; Pörtner, Hans; Sabine, Chris; Shirayama, Yoshihisa; Thomson, Jolyon (Chapter, Intergovermental Panel on Climate Change, 2005)

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, American Geophysical Union, 2005-09-09)
    This study was motivated by a strong warming signal seen in mooring-based and oceanographic survey data collected in 2004 in the Eurasian Basin of the Arctic Ocean. The source of this and earlier Arctic Ocean changes lies ...
  • Aarnes, Ole Johan (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2005)
  • Kudryavtsev, Vladimir; Akimov, D.; Johannessen, Johnny A.; Chapron, B. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-22)
    A new radar imaging model of ocean current features is proposed. The simulated normalized radar cross section (NRCS) takes into account scattering from ‘‘regular’’ surfaces (by means of resonant Bragg scattering and ...
  • Johannessen, Johnny A.; Kudryavtsev, Vladimir; Akimov, D.; Eldevik, Tor; Winther, Nina Gjerde; Chapron, B. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-22)
    The surface signatures of meandering fronts and eddies have been regularly observed and documented in synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images. Wave-current interactions, the suppression of short wind waves by natural film, ...
