  1. 1. Asymptotic methods applied to some oceanography-related problems

    Author : Moundheur Zarroug; Jonas Nycander; Kristofer Döös; Jan Erik Weber; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Asymptotic analysis; internal waves; geophysical fluid dynamics; thermal oscillator; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Oceanography; Oceanografi; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : In this thesis a number of issues related to oceanographic problems have been dealt with on the basis of applying asymptotic methods.  The first study focused on the tidal generation of internal waves, a process which is quantifed by the conversion rates. These have traditionally been calculated by using the WKB approximation. READ MORE

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

    Author : Johannes Karlsson; Gunilla Svensson; Henning Rodhe; Bjorn Stevens; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences; Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap; Meteorology; Meteorologi; Oceanography; 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

  3. 3. Model Studies of Surface Waves and Sediment Resuspension in the Baltic Sea

    Author : Anette Jönsson; Lars Rahm; Åsa Danielsson; Tarmo Soomere; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Surface waves; Wave model; Wave friction velocity; Resuspension; Sediment dynamics; Nitrogen fixation; Baltic Sea; Havsvågor; Östersjön; Oceanografi; Sediment; Oceanography; Oceanografi;

    Abstract : Wave heights and periods of surface waves in the Baltic Sea have been modelled for a two-year period (1999-2000) with the wave model Hypas on an 11x11-km grid scale. There is a clear seasonal variation with higher waves during winter and lower during summer. READ MORE

  4. 4. On methods for estimating oceanic flow

    Author : Jenny A. U. Nilsson; Peter Lundberg; Peter Sigray; Bert Rudels; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ocean monitoring techniques; Barotropic flow; Baroclinic flow; Hydraulic theory; Baltic Sea; Bahía de Concepción; Oceanography; Oceanografi; Oceanography; oceanografi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to estimate and possibly quantify ocean flow by utilizing conventional and novel observational methods as well as model results. Motionally induced voltages, from a cable-based observational system in the Baltic Sea, were analysed to determine their utility for ocean monitoring. READ MORE

  5. 5. Model analysis of ocean carbon storage and transport across climate states

    Author : Malin Ödalen; Jonas Nycander; Johan Nilsson; Kevin I. C. Oliver; Nathaelle Bouttes-Mauhourat; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Oceanography; Climate; Climate model; Carbon cycle; Paleoclimate; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : The ocean carbon cycle plays a fundamental role in the Earth’s climate system, on decadal to multi-millennial timescales. Of the carbon held in the ocean, the atmosphere, and the terrestrial biosphere combined, more than 90% resides in the ocean. Carbon enters the surface ocean through air-sea gas exchange and from terrestrial sources. READ MORE
