On Mixed Wind-Sea/Swell Conditions in the Open Ocean : Model and Radar-Observations
(The University of Bergen, 2005)
Arctic sea ice altimetry - advances and current uncertainties
(The University of Bergen, 2014-06-11)
<p>One of the most prominent features of global climate change is the reduction in Arctic sea ice thickness. The main tool to derive sea ice thickness on an Arctic wide scale is altimetry from satellites, yet current ...
The SailBuoy remotely-controlled unmanned vessel: Measurements of near surface temperature, salinity and oxygen concentration in the Northern Gulf of Mexico
An experimental deployment of a new type of unmanned vessel is presented. The Christian Michelsen Research SailBuoy, a remotely-controlled surface vehicle, sampled near-surface properties during a two-month mission in the ...
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 ...
Seasonal variation in marine C:N:P stoichiometry: can the composition of seston explain stable Redfield ratios?
(Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union, 2011)
Seston is suspended particulate organic matter, comprising a mixture of autotrophic, heterotrophic and detrital material. Despite variable proportions of these components, marine seston often exhibits relatively small ...
Dissipation measurements using temperature microstructure from an underwater glider
Microstructure measurements of temperature and current shear are made using an autonomous underwater glider. The glider is equipped with fast-response thermistors and airfoil shear probes, providing measurements of dissipation ...
North Atlantic 20th century multidecadal variability in coupled climate models: sea surface temperature and ocean overturning circulation
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-06)
Output from a total of 24 state-of-the-art Atmosphere-Ocean General Circulation Models is analyzed. The models were integrated with observed forcing for the period 1850–2000 as part of the Intergovernmental Panel on ...
Sea surface gravity wave - wind interaction in the marine atmospheric boundary layer
In this study, we investigate the turbulence structure over idealized wind-generated surface gravity waves with varying wave age using a wave-modified one-dimensional boundary layer model. To prescribe the shape of the ...
Extremes and Trends in Wave Climate. A regional and global study
(The University of Bergen, 2015-01-16)
<p>Wind generated surface waves represent a critical factor for offshore constructions and coastal development, and are highly relevant in scientific questions related to climate and weather. The sea state can be described ...
En enkel gressvekstmodell utprøvd på Island og i Norge
(The University of Bergen, 2001)
