  1. 1. Atmospheric and oceanic circulation from a thermodynamic perspective

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Aitor Aldama Campino; Kristofer Döös; Peter Lundberg; George Nurser; [2019]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Atmospheric circulation; Ocean circulation; Stream functions; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi;

    Abstract : The climate system is continuously transporting and exchanging heat, freshwater, carbon and other tracers in different spatio-temporal scales. Therefore, analysing the system from a thermodynamic or biogeochemical framework is highly convenient. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mercury cycling in the global marine environment

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Michelle Nerentorp; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sea ice; air; seasonal and spatial variation; snow; Mercury cycling; seawater; mercury flux;

    Abstract : Mercury is a globally distributed contaminant that exists in the atmosphere in its elemental form as a stable monoatomic gas. Having a residence time of around one year in air allows it to be transported far from emission sources and end up in polar ecosystems. READ MORE

  3. 3. The influence of clouds on Earth's radiation budget in global climate models

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Johannes Karlsson; Gunilla Svensson; Henning Rodhe; Bjorn Stevens; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Meteorology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Meteorologi; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Oceanography; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Oceanografi; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : Considering the high sensitivity of climate to changes in cloudiness, the way clouds might change in a perturbed climate is important for the total temperature response. In fact, the cloud feedback has been identified as the main uncertainty in future projections, as simulated by global climate models. READ MORE

  4. 4. Anthropogenic influence on climate through changes in aerosol emissions from air pollution and land use change

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Juan Camilo Acosta Navarro; Ilona Riipinen; Annica M.L. Ekman; Hans-Christen Hansson; Risto Makkonen; [2017]

    Abstract : Particulate matter suspended in air (i.e. aerosol particles) exerts a substantial influence on the climate of our planet and is responsible for causing severe public health problems in many regions across the globe. READ MORE

  5. 5. The mutual interaction between the time-mean atmospheric circulation and continental-scale ice sheets

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Abstract : Geomorphological evidence of glaciations exist for the Last Glacial Maximum (about 20 kyr ago). At this time, both North America and Eurasia were covered by extensive ice sheets which are both absent today. READ MORE
