A study on the Atmospheric Boundary Layer in the High Arctic during winter
(The University of Bergen, 2016-08-26)
We investigated the stable boundary layer in Adventdalen by measuring meteorological parameters with Sonic anemometers at two heights, as well as slow response measurements, during a 7 week measurement campaign from February ...
Warming of Atlantic Water in two west Spitsbergen fjords over the last century (1912-2009)
(Co-Action PublishingNorwegian Polar Institute, 2013-05-06)
The recently observed warming of west Spitsbergen fjords has led to anomalous sea-ice conditions and has implications for the marine ecosystem. We investigated long-term trends of maximum temperature of Atlantic Water (AW) ...
Interannual variations of freshwater content in Hornsund
(The University of Bergen, 2015-05-04)
Salinity measurements have been used to calculate the freshwater content in Hornsund for the years 2001 to 2014. In 2011 there was significantly higher freshwater content in the fjord, compared to the other years, with a ...
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 ...
Bottom melting of Arctic Sea Ice in the Nansen Basin due to Atlantic Water influence
(The University of Bergen, 2016-05-24)
The hydrographic situation for a region north of Svalbard is investigated using observations from the Norwegian Young Sea Ice Cruise (N-ICE2015). Observations from January to June 2015 are compared to historical observations ...
Seasonal dynamics of the marine CO2 system in Adventfjorden, a West Spitsbergen fjord
(Norsk Polarinstitutt, 2019-06-11)
Time series of the marine CO2 system and related parameters at the IsA Station, by Adventfjorden, Svalbard, were investigated between March 2015 and November 2017. The physical and biogeochemical processes that govern ...
