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 ...
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 ...
Modelling and measurements relevant for transport of polarized light in skin tissue
(The University of Bergen, 2012-05-11)
Connectivity among subpopulations of Norwegian Coastal cod. Impacts of physical-biological factors during egg stages.
(The University of Bergen, 2012-04-19)
Norwegian Coastal cod form a stationary population of Atlantic cod ( Gadus morhua L.) consisting of several genetically separated subpopulations. A small-scale differen- tiation in marine populations with pelagic ...
Water mass transformations and air-sea exchange in the Barents Sea
(The University of Bergen, 2011-09-22)
Water mass transformation processes in the Barents Sea and their interannual to decadal variability are studied using a regional coupled ice-ocean model and observational data. Long-term data allows for assessment of ...
Reconstruction of Glacier Mass Balance and Sensitivity Tests to Climate Change: A case study of Ålfotbreen and Nigardsbreen
(The University of Bergen, 2011-11-30)
A physically-based one dimensional CROCUS snow model was applied to simulate the surface mass balances of Ålfotbreen (1964-2009) and Nigardsbreen (1962-2009) in southern Norway. The required hourly meteorological input ...
Circulation and transformation of Atlantic and Arctic water masses in climate models
(The University of Bergen, 2011-12-09)
Ocean heat transport and associated heat loss to the atmosphere contributes significantly to the anomalously mild climate of northwestern Europe and its variability. In this thesis, the circulation and transformation of ...
