The impact of mean state errors on equatorial Atlantic interannual variability in a climate model
(American Geophysical Union, 2015-02-23)
Observations show that the Equatorial Atlantic Zonal Mode (ZM) obeys similar physics to the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO): positive Bjerknes and delayed negative feedbacks. This implies the ZM may be predictable on ...
A high‐resolution hindcast of wind and waves for the North Sea, the Norwegian Sea, and the Barents Sea
(WileyAmerican Geophysical Union, 2011-05)
A combined high-resolution atmospheric downscaling and wave hindcast based on the ERA-40 reanalysis covering the Norwegian Sea, the North Sea, and the Barents Sea is presented. The period covered is from September 1957 to ...
Water mass transformation and the North Atlantic Current in three multi-century climate model simulations
(American Geophysical Union, 2012-11)
The warm and saline Subtropical Water carried by the North Atlantic Current undergoes substantial transformation on its way to higher latitudes as heat is released from ocean to atmosphere. The geographical distribution ...
Increasing carbon inventory of the intermediate layers of the Arctic Ocean
Concentrations of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), total alkalinity (TA), nutrients, and oxygen in subsurface waters of the central Arctic Ocean have been investigated for conceivable time trends over the last two ...
Tracing the Imprint of River Runoff Variability on Arctic Water Mass Transformation
(American Geophysical Union, 2019-01-14)
The Arctic Ocean receives a net freshwater input from land and from the atmosphere. This flux of freshwater, along with net surface heat loss, acts to transform the water mass properties of inflowing Atlantic and Pacific ...
Impact of data assimilation on Eulerian versus Lagrangian estimates of upper ocean transport
Using four-dimensional variational analysis, we produce an estimate of the state of a coastal region in Northern Norway during the late winter and spring in 1984. We use satellite sea surface temperature and in situ ...
