  • Arctic/Atlantic exchanges via the Subpolar Gyre 

    Langehaug, Helene Reinertsen; Medhaug, Iselin; Eldevik, Tor; Otterå, Odd Helge (American Meteorological Society, 2012)
    In the present study we investigate the decadal variability in the strength and shape of the Subpolar Gyre (SPG) in a 600-year pre-industrial simulation using the Bergen Climate Model. The atmospheric influence on the ...

  • 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 ...
  • A brief history of climate – the northern seas from the Last Glacial Maximum to global warming 

    Eldevik, Tor; Risebrobakken, Bjørg; Bjune, Anne Elisabeth; Andersson, Carin; Birks, Harry John Betteley; Dokken, Trond Martin; Drange, Helge; Glessmer, Mirjam Sophia; Li, Camille; Nilsen, Jan Even Øie; Otterå, Odd Helge; Richter, Kristin; Skagseth, Øystein (Elsevier, 2014-12)
    The understanding of climate and climate change is fundamentally concerned with two things: a well-defined and sufficiently complete climate record to be explained, for example of observed temperature, and a relevant ...

  • Mechanisms for decadal scale variability in a simulated Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation 

    Medhaug, Iselin; Langehaug, Helene Reinertsen; Eldevik, Tor; Furevik, Tore; Bentsen, Mats (Springer Verlag, 2011-06-25)
    Variability in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) has been analysed using a 600-year pre-industrial control simulation with the Bergen Climate Model. The typical AMOC variability has amplitudes of 1 ...

  • On radar imaging of current features: 2. Mesoscale eddy and current front detection 

    Johannessen, Johnny A.; Kudryavtsev, Vladimir; Akimov, D.; Eldevik, Tor; Winther, Nina Gjerde; Chapron, B. (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, ...

  • Water mass transformation and the North Atlantic Current in three multi-century climate model simulations 

    Langehaug, Helene Reinertsen; Rhines, Peter B.; Eldevik, Tor; Mignot, Juliette; Lohmann, Katja (American Geophysical Union, 2012-11)
    The warm and saline Subtropical Water carried by the North Atlantic Current undergoes substantial transformation on its way to higher latitudes as heat is released from ocean to atmosphere. The geographical distribution ...
