Low Level Jet Streams at the Sea Ice Edge - Numerical Simulations using WRF
(The University of Bergen, 2013-06-03)
The goal of the presented thesis is to investigate the formation of low level jets at the sea ice edge. Differential heating creates very sharp fronts at the ice edge. A transversal circulation, initiated by altered pressure ...
Extreme precipitation in Central Norway. A case and climate study
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-01)
An extreme precipitation event occurred over Central Norway at the end of January to the beginning of February 2006. The heavy precipitation in addition to high temperatures lead to snow melt and increased run-off, which ...
Modeling the dynamics and drift of icebergs in the Barents Sea
(The University of Bergen, 2010-10-22)
Surface wave effects in the upper ocean and consequences for biological modeling
(The University of Bergen, 2014-03-21)
<p>Effects of surface gravity waves on particle transport and currents in the upper ocean are studied using field observations and numerical models. Knowledge on upper ocean particle drift is needed for plankton transport ...
The East Greenland Current: Structure and Variability
(The University of Bergen, 2004)
The circulation of the Norwegian Sea- An investigation from space and ocean
(The University of Bergen, 2014-01-10)
The Norwegian Sea circulation plays a key role in maintaining the mild climate of the northwestern Europe via the transport of warm Atlantic Water pole-ward. The first paper addresses the advective currents connecting the ...
PVTx Properties of a Two-phase CO2 Jet from Ruptured Pipeline
Span and Wagner equation of state (SW EOS) have been used to investigate changes in the thermodynamic properties of CO2 during a depressurization process from a pipeline into marine environment. The process is assumed to ...
Arctic Ocean carbon biogeochemistry under climate change and ocean acidification
(The University of Bergen, 2013-05-10)
<p>Human-induced CO2 emissions to the atmosphere cause climate change and ocean acidification. The strongest indicators of climate change and ocean acidification are expected to be found in the Arctic Ocean (AO). The AO ...
Extreme winds in the Nordic Seas : polar lows and Arctic fronts in a changing climate
(The University of Bergen, 2007-03-30)
Stormbaner ved ulikt isdekke i Labradorhavet
(The University of Bergen, 2002)
The seaice in the Arctic is an important component in the climate system, and plays an important role by interacting with atmospheric circulation trough surface-albedo and energy-exchanges. To study the atmospheric response ...
