Climatic mean and interannual variation of northern Barents Sea water mass distribution and circulation. A combined study of ROMS, current and hydrography observations (The University of Bergen, 2008-06-02)Evaluating current measurements, hydrography observations and model (ROMS) results of the northern Barents Sea, water mass distribution and circulation is investigated. Water mass exchange with the Arctic Ocean is linked ...Master thesis
A quantitative description of the West Spitsbergen Current by combining hydrography, altimetry and in-situ current meters (The University of Bergen and University Centre in Svalbard, UNIS, 2014-06-02)In a warming Arctic Ocean (AO) it is important to study its main source of oceanic heat and salt. Here, seasonal climatological sections of the West Spitsbergen Current (WSC) across 78.83°N have been constructed using ...Master thesis
The sensitivity of the present day Atlantic meriodinal overturning circulation to freshwater forcing (American Geophysical Union, 2003-09-09)Mounting evidence indicates that the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) was strongly reduced during cold climate episodes in the past, possible due to freshwater influx from glacial melting. It is also ...Journal articlePeer reviewed
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-05-29)The variability in the volume exchanges between the North Atlantic and the Nordic Seas during the last 50 years is investigated using a synoptic forced, global version of the Miami Isopycnic Coordinate Ocean Model (MICOM). ...Journal article
