Effect of a variable eddy transfer coefficient in an eddy-permitting model of the subpolar North Atlantic OceanDownload
The effect of using a variable eddy transfer coefficient for the Gent–McWilliams (GM) parameterization in a (1/3)°-resolution ocean model of the subpolar North Atlantic Ocean is investigated. Results from four experiments with different implementations of this coefficient are compared among...
Sensitivity of the subpolar North Atlantic to Last Glacial Maximum surface forcing and sea ice distribution in an eddy-permitting regional ocean modelDownload
The impact of paleoatmospheric forcing and sea ice distribution on the circulation of the subpolar North Atlantic is examined in a regional eddy-permitting ocean model. We focus on water mass formation and the pathway of the North Atlantic Current. Paleofluxes are obtained from a coupled...
We examine the historical variability of Irminger Water (IW) along 3 sections across the West Greenland Current over 1950–2005. Significant variability in the salinity, size and position of the IW core are seen over time. Some of the saltiest and warmest IW ever recorded have been seen since 1995...
This thesis presents a modified version of the Finite Element Ocean Model (FEOM) developed at Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) for the North Atlantic Ocean. A reasonable North Atlantic Ocean simulation is obtained against observational data sets in a Control simulation...
Separating the influence of projected changes in air temperature and wind on patterns of sea level change and ocean heat contentDownload
We present ocean model sensitivity experiments aimed at separating the influence of the projected changes in the “thermal” (near-surface air temperature) and “wind” (near-surface winds) forcing on the patterns of sea level and ocean heat content. In the North Atlantic, the distribution of sea...

Accelerating since the early 1990s, the Greenland Ice Sheet mass loss exerts a significant impact on thermohaline processes in the sub-Arctic seas. Surplus freshwater discharge from Greenland since the 1990s, comparable in volume to the amount of freshwater present during the Great Salinity...
The goal of this guide is to derive a better understanding of the biodiversity of sponges across the eastern Canadian Arctic. Specimens were collected during research cruises aboard the Canadian Coast Guard Ship (CCGS) Amundsen in October 2015, July 2016 and July 2017. Collection sites were...
