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 ...
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)
Ensemble-based data assimilation and forecasting with an eddy-resolving model of the Gulf of Mexico
(The University of Bergen, 2008-09-12)
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 ...
Aspects on interactions between mid- to high latitude atmospheric circulation and some surface processes
(The University of Bergen, 2006-06-08)
The Arctic is a hot topic in Climate Research. A large number of signs of a warming Arctic Climate have been identified the latest years. This is of major concern in light of the increasing atmospheric content of greenhouse ...
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 ...
Carbon to nutrient ratios in marine systems: understanding natural variability Studies of seasonal, inter-annual and regional variability
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-29)
Ecological stoichiometry deals with the coupling of the carbon (C), nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) cycles at the base of the aquatic food webs. Variation in C:N:P stoichiometry is driven by a multitude of factors, and ...
The influence of the ocean and the stratosphere on climate persistence in the North Atlantic region
(The University of Bergen, 2009-09-07)
The North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) is generally regarded to largely be a product of processes internal to the troposphere. This thesis investigates various aspects of how the NAO and related climatical fields are ...
