  • Barents Sea ice cover reflects Atlantic inflow 

    Årthun, Marius; Eldevik, Tor; Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Skagseth, Øystein (The authors, 2011)
    The recent Arctic winter sea-ice retreat is most pronounced in the Barents Sea. Using available observations of the Atlantic inflow to the Barents Sea and results from a regional ice-ocean model we assess the role of ...
  • Dense water formation and circulation in the Barents Sea 

    Årthun, Marius; Ingvaldsen, Randi; Smedsrud, Lars Henrik; Schrum, Corinna (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 We present previously unpublished observations from shallow banks in the Barents Sea, which reveal large interannual ...
  • Water mass transformations and air-sea exchange in the Barents Sea 

    Årthun, Marius (The University of Bergen, 2011-09-22)
    Water mass transformation processes in the Barents Sea and their interannual to decadal variability are studied using a regional coupled ice-ocean model and observational data. Long-term data allows for assessment of ...
