A study of the renewal of bottom water in Hjeltefjorden using observational data and a σ-coordinate ocean model
(The University of Bergen, 2006-06)
The impact of the wind stress curl in the North Atlantic on the Atlantic inflow to the Norwegian Sea toward the Arctic
(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 ...
Wintertime cyclone/anticyclone activity over China and its relation to upper tropospheric jets
(Co-Action Publishing, 2014-01-16)
In this study, the wintertime cyclone/anticyclone activity and its variability over China are examined based on the National Centers for Environmental Prediction/National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCEP/NCAR) reanalysis ...
Changes in the properties and distribution of the intermediate and deep waters in the Fram Strait
The Fram Strait is the only deep connection between the Arctic Ocean and the Nordic Seas (Greenland, Iceland, and Norwegian Seas), with a sill depth of approximately 2600 m. Consequently, observations from this area ...
Water mass transformations in the Barents Sea and linkages to the Polar Front
(The University of Bergen, 2010-10-29)
Modelled mass balance of Xibu glacier, Tibetan Plateau: sensitivity to climate change
(International Glaciological Society, 2010-06-01)
Due to a lack of in situ measurements, model-based studies of glacier mass balance in the Tibetan Plateau are very limited. An energy-balance model is applied to analyse the mass-balance sensitivity of Xibu glacier, in the ...
North Atlantic multidecadal variability in coupled climate models - Mechanisms and responses
(The University of Bergen, 2011-05-06)
Global atmosphere-ocean general circulation models have been used to investigate mechanisms controlling the North Atlantic low-frequency variability, with the focus on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, the ...
Critical vulnerabilities of marine and sea ice–based ecosystems in the high Arctic
The objectives of this paper are to summarise: (1) observed 20th-century and projected 21st-century changes in key components of the Arctic climate system and (2) probable impacts on the Arctic marine environment, with ...
Transport Upscaling in Porous Media
(The University of Bergen, 2014-06-02)
Numerical models are important for modeling what happens in porous media. In this thesis we will simulate the heat transport in geothermal reservoirs. Because these reservoirs are usually quite large, we will make a model ...
Downslope windstorm in Iceland –WRF/MM5 model comparison
(European Geosciences Union, 2011-01-05)
A severe windstorm downstream of Mt. Öræfajökull in Southeast Iceland is simulated on a grid of 1 km horizontal resolution by using the PSU/NCAR MM5 model and the Advanced Research WRF model. Both models are run with ...
