Skillful prediction of Barents Sea ice cover
(AGU (American Geophysical Union), 2015-07-08)
A main concern of present climate change is the Arctic sea ice cover. In wintertime, its observed variability is largely carried by the Barents Sea. Here we propose and evaluate a simple quantitative and prognostic framework ...
A brief history of climate – the northern seas from the Last Glacial Maximum to global warming
The understanding of climate and climate change is fundamentally concerned with two things: a well-defined and sufficiently complete climate record to be explained, for example of observed temperature, and a relevant ...
Arctic/Atlantic exchanges via the Subpolar Gyre
(American Meteorological Society, 2012)
In the present study we investigate the decadal variability in the strength and shape of the Subpolar Gyre (SPG) in a 600-year pre-industrial simulation using the Bergen Climate Model. The atmospheric influence on the ...
Water mass transformation and the North Atlantic Current in three multi-century climate model simulations
(American Geophysical Union, 2012-11)
The warm and saline Subtropical Water carried by the North Atlantic Current undergoes substantial transformation on its way to higher latitudes as heat is released from ocean to atmosphere. The geographical distribution ...
