  1. 1. The interplay between atmosphere, hydrology and land use by environmental modelling

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Fabio Pereira; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Land use changes; expansion of sugarcane; hydrological cycle; coupled models;

    Abstract : Interactions between land surface and atmosphere induced by human activities and natural environmental dynamics act on a time scale that varies from seconds to millions of years. It is by exchanging heat, water, energy and carbon that land surface and atmospheric processes are closely interrelated and influence each other in reciprocal ways. READ MORE

  2. 2. An investigation into ocean thermodynamics and water-mass transformation

    University dissertation from Stockhom : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Magnus Hieronymus; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ocean thermodynamics; water-mass transformation; buoyancy; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : This thesis presents oceanic budgets of potential temperature, salinity and buoyancy as well as a novel way of diagnosing water-mass transformation in salinity-temperature space. The buoyancy of seawater is given by a nonlinear function of temperature, salinity and pressure and much of the work in this thesis revolves around how fluxes of heat and salinity influence the buoyancy of seawater through these nonlinearities.

  3. 3. Oceanographic studies of the Baltic Sea with emphasis on sea ice and mixing processes

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Christian Nohr; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Baltic Sea; Water and Heat budgets; Deep-water mixing; Internal Wavedrag; Dynamical Sea Ice production; Sea Ice dynamics;

    Abstract : This thesis comprises of model estimates of the water and heat budgets, re-estimating of the budget of deep-water mixing energy, model studies of generation mechanisms for internal waves, sea ice dynamermics and finally sea ice monitoring. Common site for all the studies are the Baltic Sea. READ MORE

  4. 4. Water and heat exchange processes over the Baltic sea

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anna Rutgersson; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap; Meteorology; meteorologi;

    Abstract : Before we can reach understanding of the global climate and predict climate changes accurately we must be able to understand water and energy budgets. The atmosphere-water exchange processes are of great importance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Freshwater processes and water mass transformation in the Arctic Ocean

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Per Pemberton; Stockholms universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : This thesis explores freshwater-related processes and water mass transformation in the Arctic Ocean. Knowledge of these processes is important from both a local and a global perspective. Globally, because the export of cold and low saline water and sea ice might influence the North Atlantic and global meridional overturning circulation. READ MORE
