A two-layer model for linear stability analysis of shelf-slope currents.
(The University of Bergen, 2011)
A method for obtaining the normal mode solution of a linear two-layer system over sloping topography has been derived and implemented, providing a basic tool for analysing the disper- sion relation and modal structure ...
Wave and wind conditions in the Red Sea. A numerical study using a third generation wave model
(The University of Bergen, 2010-06-01)
In order to understand how waves behave and how other parameters can interact between ocean and atmosphere we can use a numerical model. For the Red Sea basin wave measurements are absent and due to that a WAM wave ...
Moisture Transport and Precipitation in Ethiopia
(The University of Bergen, 2012-05-09)
With little irrigation and a diverse climate, Ethiopia is a country where the effects of too little precipitation are frequently seen. While the generation of precipitation also depends on local ascent and cooling of the ...
Numerical modelling of the sub-surface melting of marine-terminating glaciers in Arctic fjords
(The University of Bergen, 2015-06-01)
Submarine melting of glaciers terminating in fjords is likely to be of high importance regarding the total ice loss from ice sheets and ice caps and the resulting addition of freshwater to the ocean. Submarine melting ...
A study on the processes that cause extreme precipitation on the west coast of Norway
(The University of Bergen, 2011-11-20)
The purpose of this thesis was to get a deeper understanding of extreme daily precipitation events on the west coast of Norway. To examine the extreme precipitation on the west coast of Norway, daily precipitation events ...
The Dynamics of the East Madagascar Current System and Its Influence on the Biological Production Associated to the Shelf - An Observational Study
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-01)
The dynamics of the East Madagascar Current (EMC) system, and its influence on the biological production associated to the shelf, is studied by using cruise-data collected onboard the Norwegian R/V. Dr. Fridtjof Nansen ...
Water mass exchange in the sea west of Svalbard. A process study of flow instability and vortex generated heat fluxes in the West Spitsbergen Current
(The University of Bergen, 2011-06-16)
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 ...
Modelling and measurements relevant for transport of polarized light in skin tissue
