Climatological Atlas of the Nordic Seas and Northern North Atlantic This Atlas is a result of an international collaboration between the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (Russia), Geophysical Institute, University of Bergen (Norway), and the.

The Nordic Seas play significant roles in the Thermo-Haline Circulation of the coupled Atlantic Ocean-Arctic Ocean System. Heat exchange, deep convection and deep-water formation take place there.

Barotropic and topographically steered, northward flow on the eastern side of the Nordic Seas carries warm and, salt Atlantic Water to the Arctic Cited by: 4. Northern Waters.

Comparison of mass fluxes between stations in the northern Nordic Seas, arrays. Because of strong seasonality, flux measurements in high latitudes must cover at least a one-year cycle of seasons.

We have used One to three current meters were deployed. The Nordic Seas is a traditional name of the Greenland Sea, the Iceland Sea, and the Norwegian Sea. Some authors include the Barents Sea in the Nordic Seas, as well. In the s, American oceanographic literature made unsuccessful attempts to call them “The GIN Seas” (from the first letters of the seas).Author: Walczowski Waldemar.

Deepening of the Greenland‐Scotland Ridge (GSR) causes warming and a salinity increase in the Nordic Seas and Arctic Ocean.

The characteristic temperature and salinity changes are independent of the Fram Strait gateway configuration. Fram Strait subsidence for a deep GSR causes less pronounced warming and salinity increase in the Nordic Seas.

The westernmost Atlantic water inflow to the Nordic Seas is the current that flows northwards through the Denmark Strait between Greenland and Iceland. This current is commonly termed the ‘North Icelandic Irminger Current’ (Stefánsson, ), indicating an origin in the Irminger Current.

The impact of North Atlantic Current (NAC) volume, heat, and salt transport variability onto the Nordic Seas and the Arctic Ocean is investigated using numerical hindcast and sensitivity experiments.

Descriptive Physical Oceanography, Sixth Edition, provides an introduction to the field with an emphasis on large-scale oceanography based mainly on observations. Topics covered include the physical properties of seawater, heat and salt budgets, instrumentation, data analysis methods, introductory dynamics, oceanography and climate variability of each of the oceans and of the global ocean, and.

At the northern flank of the Iceland Faroe ater masses and their properties in the Nordic Seas (Blindheim et al. File Size: KB. Warm water from the North Atlantic enters the Nordic Seas from the east, specifically in the Norwegian Atlantic Current (part of the North Atlantic Current). The western boundary of the Nordic Seas is the southward-flowing East Greenland Current.

This current enters through the Fram Straight from the Arctic. This current is considered one of the main ways for Arctic sea ice to be exported. The Nordic Seas have three sea areas: The Greenland Sea, Iceland Sea and Norwegian Sea, and possess several ocean currents, including the Greenland Sea Gyre, East Greenland Current, and Norwegian Atlantic Current, along with numerous marine geomorphic structures (Mohns Ridge, Knipovich Ridge and Greenland Basin) (Bourke et al., ; Yue et al Author: Yong Jiang, Fan Yang, Yanan Zhao, Jun Wang.

The problem with the future projections of the thermohaline circulation, and therefore the Gulf Stream system, is the lack of direct and continuous measurement from earlier periods.

4 Scientists have to rely on indirect observations and measurements for the analysis of long term development of the ocean circulation. Measuring the ocean currents.

where is the pressure and the mixing ratio. Varen, Bernhard (?) A German physician who is commonly accredited with being the founder of modern general geography. He summarized, amongst many other things, the current state of knowledge about the sea in his book Geographia Generalis (later published in English as A Compleat System of General Geography), first published in An informative miscellany of the essentials of Scandinavian culture.

The book starts with a definition of Scandinavia(n) vs. Nordic, and then explores Scandinavian life further through sections on style, at the table, life outside, family life, culture, and celebrations/5.

Oceanographers express current flow in "millions of cubic meters per second," a term difficult for most people to comprehend. A large current, such as the Gulf Stream south of Nova Scotia, transports more than million cubic meters per second, and typical transports for the smaller deep western boundary currents are 10 to 20 million cubic.
