  1. 1. Turbulence in the sea ice impacted Southern Ocean and its implications for primary production and carbon export

    Author : Isabelle Giddy; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Southern Ocean; sea ice; submesoscale; diapycnal mixing; heat fluxes; primary production; carbon export; gliders.;

    Abstract : The sea ice impacted Southern Ocean, south of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current, is one of the most important regions on earth for the cycling of carbon and distribution of heat and freshwater around the globe. Here, along-isopycnal upwelling of warm, carbon-rich circumpolar deep water coincides with the annual growth and melt of Antarctic sea ice that represents one of the worlds largest surface water transformations.

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

    Author : Christian Nohr; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    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
