  2. 2. Tracing pathways in the ocean circulation : A temperature and salinity perspective

    Author : Sara Berglund; Kristofer Döös; Jonas Nycander; Göran Broström; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lagrangian trajectories; Climate modelling; Atlantic Ocean; Southern Ocean; Ocean circulation; heat; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : The ocean circulation plays an essential role in our climate system. It redistributes heat, salt, carbon and other tracers across the globe, making the climate of Earth more moderate. This thesis targets density differences that are driving the ocean circulation. These differences are caused by changes in temperature and salinity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Atmospheric circulation regimes and climate change

    Author : Jenny Brandefelt; Erland Källén; Jonas Nycander; Vim Verkley; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; atmospheric large-scale circulation; greenhouse gas forcing; climate sensitivity; Meteorology; Meteorologi;

    Abstract : The Earth's atmosphere is expected to warm in response to increasing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHG). The response of the Earth's complex and chaotic climate system to the GHG emissions is, however, difficult to assess. In this thesis, two issues of importance for the assessment of this response are studied. READ MORE

  4. 4. Atlantic Water in the Nordic Seas : A satellite altimetry perspective on ocean circulation

    Author : Sara Broomé; Johan Nilsson; Jonas Nycander; Léon Chafik; Michael A. Spall; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arctic Ocean climate; ocean heat transport; sea surface height; topographic control; Lagrangian trajectories; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : The Atlantic Water in the Nordic Seas contributes to the mild climate of Northern Europe and is the main oceanic source of heat for the Arctic. The northward bound transport of the warm and saline Atlantic Water is mediated by a topographically constrained cyclonic boundary current along the Norwegian continental slope. READ MORE

  5. 5. Tidally generated internal waves

    Author : Saeed Falahat; Jonas Nycander; Sonya Legg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Tidally generated internal waves in the deep ocean; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the internal tide in the deep ocean, which is generated by the barotropic tide flowing over the bottom topography. The energy flux from the barotropic tide to the internal-wave field at the bottom is calculated using a method based on linear-wave theory and the traditional WKB approximation valid for a slowing varying vertical stratification.
