Microstructure measurements using a glider in the Faroe Bank Channel Overflow
(The University of Bergen, 2013-05-30)
The application of turbulence instrumentation on underwater gliders is addressed, and two methods for glider-inferred dissipation rates of turbulent kinetic energy are evaluated against a ship-based vertical microstructure ...
Modelling alongshore flow in a semi-enclosed lagoon strongly forced by tides and waves
Alongshore flows strongly driven by tides and waves is studied in the context of a one-dimensional numerical model. Observations from field surveys performed in a semi-enclosed lagoon (1.7 km×0.2 km) outside Xai-Xai, ...
Analysis of a low-level coastal jet off the western coast of Norway
Offshore wind installations depend strongly on an improved knowledge of the atmospheric and ocean conditions affecting the marine atmospheric boundary layer (MABL). In particular the better understanding of atmospheric ...
Transport of inorganic carbon through, within, and below the ocean surface
(The University of Bergen, 2011-03-11)
Human emissions of CO2 through the burning of fossil fuel, cement production, and land use change have increased the atmospheric CO2 concentration by 39 % since 1750. Without the large uptake of anthropogenic CO2 by the ...

Northern Hemisphere storminess in the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM1-M)
(Copernicus Publications, 2014-12-16)
Metrics of storm activity in Northern Hemisphere high- and midlatitudes are evaluated from historical output and future projections by the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM1-M) coupled global climate model. The European ...
Water mass transformations and air-sea exchange in the Barents Sea
(The University of Bergen, 2011-09-22)
Water mass transformation processes in the Barents Sea and their interannual to decadal variability are studied using a regional coupled ice-ocean model and observational data. Long-term data allows for assessment of ...
Målt og Modellert Globalstråling ved Ekofisk og i Nordområdene
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-01)
I dette arbeidet er globalstrålingsdata fra Ekofisk, Arktis og fastlandsstasjoner i Norge og Sverige studert. Stasjonene ligger mellom 56°N og 75°N, og all data er hentet fra perioden 2005 til og med 2010. Målinger i Arktis ...
Experimental characterization of the marine atmospheric boundary layer in the Havsul area, Norway
Offshore wind energy applications depend strongly on an improved knowledge of the physical processes taking place in marine atmospheric boundary layer (MABL). In particular the better understanding of the complex interactions ...
Eddy-resolving simulations of the Fimbul Ice Shelf cavity circulation: Basal melting and exchange with open ocean
Melting at the base of floating ice shelves is a dominant term in the overall Antarctic mass budget. This study applies a high-resolution regional ice shelf/ocean model, constrained by observations, to (i) quantify present ...
