Ensemble-based data assimilation and forecasting with an eddy-resolving model of the Gulf of Mexico
(The University of Bergen, 2008-09-12)
Warming of Atlantic Water in two west Spitsbergen fjords over the last century (1912-2009)
(Co-Action PublishingNorwegian Polar Institute, 2013-05-06)
The recently observed warming of west Spitsbergen fjords has led to anomalous sea-ice conditions and has implications for the marine ecosystem. We investigated long-term trends of maximum temperature of Atlantic Water (AW) ...
A Diagnostic Diagram to Understand Atmosphere-ocean Dynamics in the Southern North Sea at High Wind Spe
Long time series of offshore meteorological measurements in the lower marine atmospheric boundary layer show dynamical regimes and variability that are forced partly by interaction with the underlying sea surface and partly ...
Measured volume, heat, and salt fluxes from the Atlantic to the Arctic Mediterranean
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-04-07)
The flow of warm and saline Atlantic water towards the Arctic crosses the Greenland-Scotland Ridge in three current branches. Since the mid 1990's, extensive monitoring with quasi-permanent moorings and regular CTD cruises ...
Dynamical downscaling of ERA-40 in complex terrain using the WRF regional climate model
Results from a first-time employment of the WRF regional climate model to climatological simulations in Europe are presented. The ERA-40 reanalysis (resolution 1 ) has been downscaled to a horizontal resolution of 30 ...
Water mass modification in an Arctic fjord through cross-shelf exchange: The seasonal hydrography of Kongsfjorden, Svalbard
(American Geophysical Union, 2005-12-08)
Kongsfjorden and the West Spitsbergen Shelf is a region whose seasonal hydrography is dominated by the balance of Atlantic Water, Arctic waters, and glacial melt. Regional seasonality and the cross-shelf exchange processes ...
Numerisk simulering av orografisk nedbør på Vestlandet
(The University of Bergen, 2005)
Hvordan klimaet kan endres - en innføring
Denne boka handler om det naturvitenskapelige grunnlaget for klimaendringer, om hvordan klimaet kan endres, hva vi vet og hva som er usikkert. En stor del av arbeidet til FNs klimapanel IPCC omfatter dette grunnlaget, de ...
The fate of the Atlantic Water in the North Icelandic Irminger Current
(The University of Bergen, 2012-01-19)
The fate of the Atlantic Water within the North Icelandic Irminger Current has long been questioned. The North Icelandic Irminger Current flows along the Icelandic shelf area to the west and north of Iceland, bringing warm ...
Ocean acidication in the Arabian Sea and the Red Sea - factors controlling pH
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-01)
The CO2 increase in the ocean due to uptake of anthropogenic CO2 and the companying lowering of ocean pH is of major concern. In this study we investigated the variability of CO2 system parameters, focusing particularly ...
