Water mass modification over the continental shelf north of Ronne Ice Shelf, Antarctica
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-08-13)
We use new data from the southern Weddell Sea continental shelf to describe water mass conversion processes in a formation region for cold and dense precursors of Antarctic Bottom Water. The cruises took place in early ...
Aspects on interactions between mid- to high latitude atmospheric circulation and some surface processes
(The University of Bergen, 2006-06-08)
The Arctic is a hot topic in Climate Research. A large number of signs of a warming Arctic Climate have been identified the latest years. This is of major concern in light of the increasing atmospheric content of greenhouse ...
Correction to “Sea ice velocity in the Fram Strait monitored by moored instruments”
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-12-11)
Simulating transport of non-Chernobyl 137Cs and 90Sr in the North Atlantic–Arctic region
The spatial and temporal distributions of the anthropogenic radionuclides 137Cs and 90Sr, originating from nuclear bomb testing and the Sellafield reprocessing plants in the Irish Sea, are simulated using a global version ...
A late-winter to early-spring temperature reconstruction for southeastern Norway from 1758 to 2006
(International Glaciological Society, 2007-10)
Systematic temperature observations were not undertaken in Norway until the early 19th century, and even then only sporadically. Climate-proxy data may be used to reconstruct temperatures before this period, but until ...
The seasonal cycle in the Atlantic transport to the Barents Sea during the years 1997–2001
The seasonal cycle in the Atlantic inflow to the Barents Sea is investigated by using 4-year long records from moored current meters, additional moorings of shorter duration, and hydrographic measurements. A higher transport ...
The Iceland–Faroe inflow of Atlantic water to the Nordic Seas
The flow of Atlantic water between Iceland and the Faroe Islands is one of three current branches flowing from the Atlantic Ocean into the Nordic Seas across the Greenland–Scotland Ridge. By the heat that it carries along, ...
A high-resolution study of Holocene paleoclimatic and paleoceanographic changes in the Nordic Seas
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-03-26)
High-resolution records from IMAGES core MD95-2011 in the eastern Norwegian Sea provide evidence for relatively large- and small-scale high-latitude climate variability throughout the Holocene. During the early and ...
Deep sea sedimentary analogs for the Vostok ice core
(American Geophysical Union and the Geochemical Society, 2003-08-07)
Many applications of the Vostok ice core depend critically on the ability to make stratigraphic ties to marine records in the adjacent Southern Ocean. Here we present oxygen isotopic records from high accumulation rate ...
Greenland-Scotland overflow studied by hydro-chemical multivariate analysis
Hydrographic, nutrient and halocarbon tracer data collected in July-August 1994 in the Norwegian Sea, the Faroe Bank Channel (FBC), the Iceland and Irminger Basins and the Iceland Sea are resented. Special attention was ...
