  • The deepening of the Atlantic water in the Lofoten Basin of the Norwegian Sea, demonstrated by using an active reduced gravity model 

    Orvik, Kjell Arild (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 ...

  • The impact of the wind stress curl in the North Atlantic on the Atlantic inflow to the Norwegian Sea toward the Arctic 

    Orvik, Kjell Arild; Skagseth, Øystein (American Geophysical Union, 2003-09-04)
    The Norwegian Atlantic Current (NwAC) through the Norwegian Sea serves as a conduit of warm and saline Atlantic water from the North Atlantic to the Arctic Ocean, an important factor for climate and ecology. In this ...

  • Monitoring the Norwegian Atlantic slope current using a single moored current meter 

    Orvik, Kjell Arild; Skagseth, Øystein (Elsevier, 2003-01)
    Monitoring the Atlantic inflow (AI) of warm and saline water into the Nordic Seas (Norwegian, Greenland and Iceland Seas) is of great importance becauce of its impact on climate and ecology in Northern Europe and Arctic. ...

  • One more step toward a warmer Arctic 

    Polyakov, Igor V.; Beszczynska-Möller, Agnieszka; Carmack, Eddy C.; Dmitreko, Igor A.; Fahrbach, E.; Frolov, Ivan E.; Gerdes, Rüdiger; Hansen, Edmond; Holfort, Jürgen; Ivanov, Vladimir V.; Johnson, Mark A.; Karcher, Michael; Kauker, Frank; Morison, James; Orvik, Kjell Arild; Schauer, Ursula; Simmons, Harper L.; Skagseth, Øystein; Sokolov, Vladimir T.; Steele, Michael; Timokhov, Leonid A.; Walsh, David; Walsh, John E. (American Geophysical Union, 2005-09-09)
    This study was motivated by a strong warming signal seen in mooring-based and oceanographic survey data collected in 2004 in the Eurasian Basin of the Arctic Ocean. The source of this and earlier Arctic Ocean changes lies ...
