Permeability of young sea ice from microtomographic images
(The University of Bergen, 2011-02)
The permeability of sea ice controls the transport of substances through the ice and thereby its surface properties as well as the exchange of heat, salt and gas between ice, ocean and atmosphere. More observations and ...
Barents Sea ice cover reflects Atlantic inflow
(The authors, 2011)
The recent Arctic winter sea-ice retreat is most pronounced in the Barents Sea. Using available observations of the Atlantic inflow to the Barents Sea and results from a regional ice-ocean model we assess the role of ...
Loss of sea ice during winter north of Svalbard
(International Meteorological Institute, Stockholm University, 2014-06-05)
Sea ice loss in the Arctic Ocean has up to now been strongest during summer. In contrast, the sea ice concentration north of Svalbard has experienced a larger decline during winter since 1979. The trend in winter ice area ...
Dense water formation and circulation in the Barents Sea
Dense water masses from Arctic shelf seas are an important part of the Arctic thermohaline system. We present previously unpublished observations from shallow banks in the Barents Sea, which reveal large interannual ...
Observed anomalous atmospheric patterns in summers of unusual Arctic sea icemelt
(WileyAmerican Geophysical Union, 2015-04-16)
The Arctic sea ice retreat has accelerated over the last decade. The negative trend is largest in summer, but substantial interannual variability still remains. Here we explore observed atmospheric conditions and feedback ...
