    • Validation of SAR Iceberg Detection with Ground-Based Radar and GPS Measurements 

      Akbari, Vahid; Lauknes, Tom Rune; Rouyet, Line; Negrel, Jean; Eltoft, Torbjørn (Peer reviewed; Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2018-11-05)
      Calving of icebergs at the tidewater glacier fronts is a component of the mass loss in Polar regions. Studying the regional distribution of icebergs, their volume, motion, and interaction with the environment is of interest. Here, we present the results from a fieldwork campaign conducted in Kongsfjorden, Svalbard in April 2016, where both satellite and ground-based remote sensing instruments were ...
    • Velocity distribution of Gold nanoparticles trapped on an optical waveguide 

      Hole, JP; Grujic, Katarina; Wilkinson, JS; Hellesø, Olav Gaute (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2005)
    • Velocity scaling for filament motion in scrape-off layer plasmas 

      Kube, Ralph; Garcia, Odd Erik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
    • Weather situation during observed ship-icing events off the coast of Northern Norway and the Svalbard archipelago 

      Samuelsen, Eirik Mikal; Graversen, Rune (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-02-19)
      Ship icing may lead the ship and crew in great jeopardy. Usually, predictions of such ice build-up are based on the modelling of the heat fluxes capable of freezing sea water originated from wave-ship interactions. This study, on the other hand, follows a different and more general approach by investigating the relationship between the weather situation and icing both using observed parameters from ...
    • Wind power predictions in complex terrain using analog ensembles 

      Birkelund, Yngve; Alessandrini, Stefano; Byrkjedal, Øyvind; Monache, Luca Delle (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2018)
    • Wind speed and direction predictions by WRF and WindSim coupling over Nygårdsfjell 

      Bilal, Muhammad; Birkelund, Yngve; Solbakken, Kine (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      In this study, the performance of the mesoscale meteorological Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) model coupled with the microscale computational fluid dynamics based model WindSim is investigated and compared to the performance of WRF alone. The two model set-ups, WRF and WRF-WindSim, have been tested on three high-wind events in February, June and October, over a complex terrain at the ...
    • Winter storms accelerate the demise of sea ice in the Atlantic sector of the Arctic Ocean 

      Graham, Robert M.; Itkin, Polona; Meyer, Amelie; Sundfjord, Arild; Spreen, Gunnar; Smedsrud, Lars H.; Liston, Glen E.; Cheng, Bin; Cohen, Lana; Divine, Dmitry; Fer, Ilker; Fransson, Agneta; Gerland, Sebastian; Haapala, Jari; Hudson, Stephen R.; Johansson, Malin; King, Jennifer A.; Merkouriadi, Ioanna; Peterson, Algot Kristoffer; Provost, Christine; Randelhoff, Achim; Rinke, Annette; Rösel, Anja; Sennechael, Nathalie; Walden, Von P.; Duarte, Pedro; Assmy, Philipp; Steen, Harald; Granskog, Mats A. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-25)
      A large retreat of sea-ice in the ‘stormy’ Atlantic Sector of the Arctic Ocean has become evident through a series of record minima for the winter maximum sea-ice extent since 2015. Results from the Norwegian young sea ICE (N-ICE2015) expedition, a five-month-long (Jan-Jun) drifting ice station in first and second year pack-ice north of Svalbard, showcase how sea-ice in this region is frequently ...
    • Winter warmings, tides and planetary waves. Comparisions between CMAM (with interactive chemistry) and MFR-MetO observations and data. 

      Hall, Chris; Manson, A.H.; Meek, C.; Chshyolkova, T.; McLandress, C.; Avery, S.K.; Fritts, D.C.; Hocking, W.K.; Igarashi, K.; MacDougall, J.W.; Murayama, Y.; Riggin, D.C.; Thorsen, D.; Vincent, R.A. (Journal article; Peer reviewed; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2006-10-20)
      Following earlier comparisons using the Canadian Middle Atmosphere Model (CMAM, without interactive chemistry), the dynamical characteristics of the model are assessed with interactive chemistry activated. Time-sequences of temperatures and winds at Tromsø (70° N) show that the model has more frequent and earlier stratospheric winter warmings than typically observed. Wavelets at mesospheric heights ...
    • The WSO, a world-class observatory for the ultraviolet 

      Solheim, Jan Erik; Barstow, M.A.; Binette, L.; Brosch, N.; Cheng, F-Z.; Dennefeld, M.; Gomez de Castro, A.I.; Haubold, H.; van der Hucht, K.A.; Kappelmann, N.; Martinez, P.; Ribak, E.N.; Moisheev, A.; Pagano, I.; Sahade, J.; Wamsteker, W.; Werner, K.; Becker-Ross, H.; Florek, S.; Shustov, B. (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2002-09-17)
      The World Space Observatory is an unconventional space project proceeding via distributed studies. The present design, verified for feasibilty, consists of a 1.7-meter telescope operating at the second Largangian point of the Earth-Sun system. The focal plane instruments consist of three UV spectrometers covering the spectral band from Lyman alpha to the atmospheric cutoff with R~55,000 and offering ...
    • WSO/UV: World Space Observatory/Ultraviolet 

      Solheim, Jan Erik; Hernanza, M.; González-Riestra, R.; Wamsteker, W.; Shustov, B.; Barstow, M.; Brosch, N.; Fu-Zhen, C.; Dennefeld, M.; Dopita, M.; Gómez de Castro, A.I.; Kappelmannc, N.l.; Pagano, I.; Sahade, J.; Haubold, H.; Solheim, J.-E.; Martínezc, P. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2002-11-05)
      We summarize the capabilities of the World Space Observatory (UV) Project (WSO/UV). An example of the importance of this project (with a planned launch date of 2007/8) for the study of Novae is given.
    • X-, C-, and L-band SAR signatures of newly formed sea ice in Arctic leads during winter and spring 

      Johansson, Malin; Brekke, Camilla; Spreen, Gunnar; King, Jennifer A. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-02)
      We examine an extensive synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data set from the Arctic Ocean spanning a time period from January to June 2015, with the aim of identifying multi-polarization parameters that can be used to accurately separate newly formed sea ice from the surroundings. Newly formed sea ice areas both provide favourable routing for ship traffic, and are key to Arctic climate science because ...
