Wave Extremes in the Northeast Atlantic
(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 ...
On the nature of the factors that control spring bloom development at the entrance to the Barents Sea and their interannual variability
(Taylor & Francis, 2003-12)
Analysis of data obtained by the Institute of Marine Research, Norway, at their regular surveys of the Fugløya-Bjørnøya section, between the northern tip of Norway and Bear Island, has allowed for an identification of the ...
Arctic/Atlantic exchanges via the Subpolar Gyre
(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 ...
Potensialet for utnyttelse av vindkraft på Vannøya i Nord-Troms
(The University of Bergen, 2005)
Modelling and measurements relevant for transport of polarized light in skin tissue
(The University of Bergen, 2012-05-11)
Atmospheric boundary layers in storms: advanced theory and modelling applications
(European Geosciences Union/Copernicus, 2005-03-29)
Turbulent planetary boundary layers (PBLs) control the exchange processes between the atmosphere and the ocean/land. The key problems of PBL physics are to determine the PBL height, the momentum, energy and matter fluxes ...
Benguela Niños: Observations and Modelling
(The University of Bergen, 2004)
A numerical ocean model for the South Atlantic was used to study the 1995 Benguela Niño in order to learn about the underlying forcing mechanisms of the phenomenon. By comparing observations and model output, it was found ...
A two-layer model for linear stability analysis of shelf-slope currents.
(The University of Bergen, 2011)
A method for obtaining the normal mode solution of a linear two-layer system over sloping topography has been derived and implemented, providing a basic tool for analysing the disper- sion relation and modal structure ...
Moisture Transport and Precipitation in Ethiopia
(The University of Bergen, 2012-05-09)
With little irrigation and a diverse climate, Ethiopia is a country where the effects of too little precipitation are frequently seen. While the generation of precipitation also depends on local ascent and cooling of the ...
Dynamical Perspectives on the Formation and Intensification of Polar Lows
(The University of Bergen, 2014-11-25)
This thesis consists of a collection of scientific publications addressing dynamical aspects of the formation and intensification of polar lows. Polar lows are small scale, intense, short-lived cyclones developing over ...
