A 1.3-Myr palaeoceanographic record from the continental margin off Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica
A 12.5 m long core was retrieved from the continental margin off Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. Magnetostratigraphy, stable isotopes, 14C accelerator mass spectrometer and amino acid analyses indicate a continuous ...
Observations of the Storfjorden overflow
The mixing and spreading of the Storfjorden overflow were investigated with density and horizontal velocity profiles collected at closely spaced stations. The dense bottom water generated by strong winter cooling, enhanced ...
Sr/Ca in Calcitic Tests of Benthic Foraminifera - A Potential Water-Depth Proxy?
(Bentham Open, 2009)
Well-preserved low-Mg calcite tests of modern benthic foraminifera from a depth transect off SW Norway show decreasing Sr/Ca with increasing water depth (r = –0.84). The Mg/Ca ratios also decrease with increasing water depth, ...
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 ...
A dynamic model of some malaria-transmitting anopheline mosquitoes of the Afrotropical region. I. Model description and sensitivity analysis
(BioMed Central, 2013-01-23)
Background: Most of the current biophysical models designed to address the large-scale distribution of malaria assume that transmission of the disease is independent of the vector involved. Another common assumption in ...
The importance of plant macrofossils in the reconstruction of Lateglacial vegetation and climate: examples from Scotland, western Norway, and Minnesota, USA
Lateglacial and early Holocene (ca 14–9000 14C yr BP; 15–10,000 cal yr BP) pollen records are used to make vegetation and climate reconstructions that are the basis for inferring mechanisms of past climate change and for ...
A high-resolution study of Holocene paleoclimatic and paleoceanographic changes in the Nordic Seas
(American Geophysical Union, 2003-03-26)
High-resolution records from IMAGES core MD95-2011 in the eastern Norwegian Sea provide evidence for relatively large- and small-scale high-latitude climate variability throughout the Holocene. During the early and ...
On the Velocity Gradient in Stably Stratified Sheared Flows. Part 2: Observations and Models
Observations of the dependence of the dimensionless wind speed gradient φm as a function of the Monin–Obukhov stability parameter z/Lo under strong stability diverge from results of large-eddy simulation (LES) modelling. ...
Correction to “Sea ice velocity in the Fram Strait monitored by moored instruments”
