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 ...
Norwegian farmers' diaries used for quality control and calibration of early instrumental observations, and for temperature reconstructions
(The University of Bergen, 2008-06-10)
The effect of radiation screens on Nordic time series of mean temperature
(Royal Meteorological Society, 1997-12)
A short survey of the historical development of temperature radiation screens is given based upon research in the archives of the Nordic meteorological institutes. In the middle of the nineteenth century most thermometer ...
On the Nordic Seas’ role in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation
(The University of Bergen, 2007-06-27)
In the present climate, the North Atlantic thermohaline circulation (THC) plays a fundamental role in the global transport of heat at high latitudes. The response of the North Atlantic Ocean-Nordic Seas THC to surface ...
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 late-winter to early-spring temperature reconstruction for southeastern Norway from 1758 to 2006
(International Glaciological Society, 2007-10)
Systematic temperature observations were not undertaken in Norway until the early 19th century, and even then only sporadically. Climate-proxy data may be used to reconstruct temperatures before this period, but until ...
Spring-summer temperature reconstruction in western Norway 1734-2003: a data-synthesis approach
(Royal Meteorological Society, 2003-12-16)
A series of spring–summer (April–August) temperatures was reconstructed for the period 1734–1923 for western Norway based on multi-proxy data. For the period 1734–1842 the long-term variations were based on terminal ...
