Record-breaking height for 8000-Year-Old tsunami in the North Atlantic
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-08-05)
Structure and evolution of the Bellsund Graben between Forlandsundet and Bellsund (Spitsbergen) based on marine seismic data
(Geological Soceity of Norway, 2009)
Seismic interpretation of multi-channel seismic data acquired along the western shelf of Spitsbergen allowed identification of the main geological features of the area, including the Hornsund Fault Zone, and the Forlandsundet ...
Fracture-generated permeability and groundwater yield in Norway
(Norges geologiske undersøkelse, 2002)
The transport of groundwater in bedrock is largely determined by interconnected fractures and their apertures. The conditions by which fractures become interconnected are thus of primary importance in understanding ...
The 'Little Ice Age' – only temperature?
Understanding the climate of the last few centuries, including the 'Little Ice Age', may help us better understand modern-day natural climate variability and make climate predictions. The conventional view of the climate ...
A theoretical approach to glacier equilibrium-line altitudes using meteorological data and glacier massbalance
Based on a close exponential relationship between mean ablation-season temperature and winter precipitation at the equilibrium-line altitude (ELA) of 10 Norwegian glaciers, three equations are derived. The first equation ...
Theoretical equilibrium-line altitudes and glacier buildup sensitivity in southern Norway based on meteorological data in a geographical information system
Three equations derived from a close exponential glacier-climate relationship at the equilibrium-line altitude (ELA) of Norwegian glaciers have been utilized and implemented in a geographical information system (GIS). The ...
Deep sea sedimentary analogs for the Vostok ice core
(American Geophysical Union and the Geochemical Society, 2003-08-07)
Many applications of the Vostok ice core depend critically on the ability to make stratigraphic ties to marine records in the adjacent Southern Ocean. Here we present oxygen isotopic records from high accumulation rate ...
Calendar year age estimates of Allerød - Younger Dryas sea-level oscillations at Os, western Norway
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2004)
A detailed shoreline displacement curve documents the Younger Dryas transgression in western Norway. The relative sea-level rise was more than 9m in an area which subsequently experienced an emergence of almost 60 m. The ...
Atlantic Ocean thermohaline circulation changes on orbital to suborbital timescales during the mid-Pleistocene
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-02-19)
Mid-Pleistocene benthic ∂18O and ∂13C time series from the North Atlantic site 983 and Ceara Rise site 928 are compared to an array of existing isotopic records spanning the Atlantic basin and the geographic extremes of ...
Late Holocene surface ocean conditions of the Norwegian Sea (Vøring Plateau)
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-06-04)
Late Holocene sea surface ocean conditions of the eastern Norwegian Sea (Vøring Plateau) are inferred from planktic stable isotopes and planktic foraminiferal assemblage changes in cores JM97-948/2A and MD95-2011 (66.97°N, ...
