  • Extremes and Trends in Wave Climate. A regional and global study 

    Aarnes, Ole Johan (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 ...
  • A high‐resolution hindcast of wind and waves for the North Sea, the Norwegian Sea, and the Barents Sea 

    Reistad, Magnar; Breivik, Øyvind; Haakenstad, Hilde; Aarnes, Ole Johan; Furevik, Birgitte Rugaard; Bidlot, Jean-Raymond (WileyAmerican Geophysical Union, 2011-05)
    A combined high-resolution atmospheric downscaling and wave hindcast based on the ERA-40 reanalysis covering the Norwegian Sea, the North Sea, and the Barents Sea is presented. The period covered is from September 1957 to ...
  • Marine Wind and Wave Height Trends at Different ERA-Interim Forecast Ranges 

    Aarnes, Ole Johan; Abdalla, Saleh; Bidlot, Jean-Raymond; Breivik, Øyvind (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, ...
  • On Mixed Wind-Sea/Swell Conditions in the Open Ocean : Model and Radar-Observations 

    Aarnes, Ole Johan (The University of Bergen, 2005)
  • Wave Extremes in the Northeast Atlantic 

    Aarnes, Ole Johan; Breivik, Øyvind; Reistad, Magnar (American Meteorological Society, 2012-03)
    The objective of this study is to compute 100-yr return value estimates of significant wave height using a new hindcast developed by the Norwegian Meteorological Institute. This regional hindcast covers the northeast ...
  • 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 ...
