  • Waveform classification of airborne synthetic aperture radar altimeter over Arctic sea ice 

    Zygmuntowska, Marta; Khvorostovsky, Kirill; Helm, Veith; Sandven, Stein (Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2013-08-19)
    Sea ice thickness is one of the most sensitive variables in the Arctic climate system. In order to quantify changes in sea ice thickness, CryoSat-2 was launched in 2010 carrying a Ku-band radar altimeter (SIRAL) ...
  • Wave–induced characteristics of atmospheric turbulence flux measurements 

    Paskyabi, Mostafa Bakhoday; Flügge, Martin; Edson, James B.; Reuder, Joachim (Elsevier, 2013)
    In this paper, we present the air–sea flux of momentum obtained with the eddy correlation method applied to data measured from a moored discus buoy deployed approximately 600 m off a research Air Sea Interaction Tower ...
  • Wind and wave extremes over the world oceans from very large ensembles 

    Breivik, Øyvind; Aarnes, Ole Johan; Abdalla, Saleh; Bidlot, Jean-Raymond; Janssen, Peter A. E. M. (WileyAmerican Geophysical Union, 2014-07)
    Global return values of marine wind speed and significant wave height are estimated from very large aggregates of archived ensemble forecasts at +240 h lead time. Long lead time ensures that the forecasts represent independent ...
  • Wintertime cyclone/anticyclone activity over China and its relation to upper tropospheric jets 

    Chen, Lei; Tan, Benkui; Kvamstø, Nils G; Johannessen, Ola M (Co-Action Publishing, 2014-01-16)
    In this study, the wintertime cyclone/anticyclone activity and its variability over China are examined based on the National Centers for Environmental Prediction/National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCEP/NCAR) reanalysis ...
