  • 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 ...
  • Orvik, Kjell Arild (Journal article; Peer reviewed, American Geophysical Union, 2004-06-29)
    The Norwegian Atlantic Current (NwAC) as a poleward eastern boundary current is to be considered as the northern limb of the Meridional Overturning Circulation in the North Atlantic (MOC). It transports warm and saline ...
  • Brewer, Peter G.; Peltzer, Edward T.; Walz, Peter; Aya, Izuo; Yamane, Kenji; Kojima, Ryuji; Nakajima, Yasuharu; Nakayama, Noriko; Haugan, Peter Mosby; Johannessen, Truls (Journal article; Peer reviewed, Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2005-01)
    The rapidly rising levels of atmospheric and oceanic CO2 from the burning of fossil fuels has lead to well-established international concerns over dangerous anthropogenic interference with climate. Disposal of captured ...
  • Årthun, Marius; Ingvaldsen, Randi; Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Schrum, Corinna (Peer reviewed; Journal article, Elsevier, 2011)
    Dense water masses from Arctic shelf seas are an important part of the Arctic thermohaline system. We present previously unpublished observations from shallow banks in the Barents Sea, which reveal large interannual ...
  • Furevik, Tore; Bentsen, Mats; Drange, Helge; Kindem, I. K. T.; Kvamstø, Nils Gunnar; Sorteberg, Asgeir (Journal article; Peer reviewed, Springer, 2003-07)
    A new coupled atmosphere–ocean–sea ice model has been developed, named the Bergen Climate Model (BCM). It consists of the atmospheric model ARPEGE/IFS, together with a global version of the ocean model MICOM including a ...
  • Thorsteinsson, Trond (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2013-11-20)
    Three idealized ocean model versions are developed for the Bergen Dynamic Model (Bedymo). All three model versions fall into the category of slab ocean models. One version is more or less a standard slab ocean model, ...
  • Azad, Roohollah; Sorteberg, Asgeir (Journal article; Peer reviewed, Royal Meteorological Society and Wiley-Blackwell, 2009)
    In this study, the development of a warm-core and cold-core extratropical cyclone over North Atlantic is examined. The geostrophic relative vorticity tendency used to diagnose the development is calculated utilizing the ...
  • Knutsen, Øyvind; Svendsen, Harald; Østerhus, Svein; Rossby, Tom; Hansen, Bogi (Journal article; Peer reviewed, American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-19)
    The upper ocean circulation in the sub-polar northeast Atlantic has been a challenge to quantify due to strong and variable wind-forcing, and strong and variable deep currents that lead to large uncertainties in the use ...
  • Falck, Eva; Kattner, Gerhard; Budéus, Gereon (Journal article; Peer reviewed, American Geophysical Union, 2005-07-28)
    Water of Pacific origin, entering the Arctic Ocean through the Bering Strait, exits the Arctic Ocean through the Canadian Archipelago and the Fram Strait. The amount and timing of Pacific Water export through these gates ...
  • Johnsen, Ingrid Askeland (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2011-11-20)
    Based on numerical results of currents from a high resolution fjord model, dispersion of salmon lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) in the Hardangerfjord has been modelled. The results show that salmon lice abundance in the ...
  • Mocuba, Jeremias Joaquim (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2010-06-01)
    The River dos Bons Sinais Estuary is one of the most important estuaries in the central region of the Mozambican coast. It is situated between the confluence of Cuácua and Licuári rivers and the Mozambican Channel in the ...
  • Egger, Joseph; Blacutt, Luis; Ghezzi, Flavio; Heinrich, Richard; Kolb, Philip; Lämmlein, Stephan; Leeb, Martin; Mayer, Stephanie; Palenque, Eduardo; Reuder, Joachim; Schäper, Wolfgang; Schween, Jan; Torrez, Rene; Zaratti, Francesco (Journal article; Peer reviewed, American Meteorological Society, 2005-04)
    In July and August 2003 a field campaign was conducted to explore the diurnal circulation of the Bolivian Altiplano. Vertical soundings by remote-controlled aircraft yielded profiles of temperature, pressure, and humidity ...
  • Rögnvaldsson, Ólafur; Bao, J. W.; Ágústsson, Hálfdán; Ólafsson, Haraldur (Peer reviewed; Journal article, European Geosciences Union, 2011-01-05)
    A severe windstorm downstream of Mt. Öræfajökull in Southeast Iceland is simulated on a grid of 1 km horizontal resolution by using the PSU/NCAR MM5 model and the Advanced Research WRF model. Both models are run with ...
  • Bye, John A. T.; Jenkins, Alastair D. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, American Geophysical Union, 2006-03-31)
    The correct representation of the 10-m drag coefficient for momentum (K10) at extreme wind speeds is very important for modeling the development of tropical depressions and may also be relevant to the understanding of ...
  • Heikkilä, Ulla Elina; Sandvik, Anne Dagrun; Sorteberg, Asgeir (Peer reviewed; Journal article, Springer, 2010)
    Results from a first-time employment of the WRF regional climate model to climatological simulations in Europe are presented. The ERA-40 reanalysis (resolution 1 ) has been downscaled to a horizontal resolution of 30 ...
  • 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 ...
  • Hove, Joakim; Haugan, Peter Mosby (Journal article; Peer reviewed, Sears Foundation for Marine Research, 2005)
    A trough filled with liquid CO2 located at 3940 m depth has been used as a model system for CO2 deposition on the seafloor. To study the intrinsic properties of the interface between CO2 and seawater a wave maker was used ...
  • Voldsund, Aksel (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2011-06-01)
    The dynamics of the East Madagascar Current (EMC) system, and its influence on the biological production associated to the shelf, is studied by using cruise-data collected onboard the Norwegian R/V. Dr. Fridtjof Nansen ...
  • Gaardsted, Frank (Master thesis, The University of Bergen, 2004)
  • Olsson, K. Anders; Jeansson, Emil; Tanhua, Toste; Gascard, Jean-Claude (Journal article, Elsevier, 2005-03)
    The distribution and evolution of water masses along the East Greenland Current (EGC) from south of the Fram Strait to the Denmark Strait were investigated using chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and the released tracer sulphur ...
