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, ...
Sudanese Coastal Water- Composition and Some Environmental Aspects
(The University of Bergen, 2012-09-24)
Red Sea water samples were collected from four stations in the Sudanese coast at depth of 10 m during July 2011 and analyzed for major ions and trace metals in order to determine their insitu concentration, their distribution ...
A quantitative description of the West Spitsbergen Current by combining hydrography, altimetry and in-situ current meters
(The University of Bergen and University Centre in Svalbard, UNIS, 2014-06-02)
In a warming Arctic Ocean (AO) it is important to study its main source of oceanic heat and salt. Here, seasonal climatological sections of the West Spitsbergen Current (WSC) across 78.83°N have been constructed using ...
Local flow conditions in the Bergen valley based on observations and numerical simulations
(The University of Bergen, 2012-10-16)
The complex topography and variability in surface roughness in the Bergen valley aff-ects the flow conditions in a multitude of ways. The steep mountains give shelter during strong synoptic flow, but the orography of Bergen ...
Carbon and oxygen fluxes in the Barents and Norwegian Seas : production, air-sea exchange and budget calculations
(The University of Bergen, 2007-08-17)
This thesis focus on the carbon and oxygen fluxes in the Barents and Norwegian Seas and presents four studies where the main topics are variability of biological production, air-sea exchange and budget calculations. The ...
Effects of altitude and aerosol on UV radiation
(American Geophysical Union, 2006-01-10)
Measurements of erythemally weighted UV radiation during about 600 days at different sites in Bolivia and Germany ranging from 550 to 5240 m above sea level have been used to derive the altitude effect AE under cloud-free ...
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 ...
Målt og modellert UV-stråling i Bergen
(The University of Bergen, 2006)
Dispersion and abundance of salmon lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) in a Norwegian fjord system
(The University of Bergen, 2011-11-20)
Based on numerical results of currents from a high resolution fjord model, dispersion of salmon lice (Lepeophtheirus salmonis) in the Hardangerfjord has been modelled. The results show that salmon lice abundance in the ...
