1. The Arctic Atmosphere : Interactions between clouds, boundary-layer turbulence and large-scale circulation
Sammanfattning : Arctic climate is changing fast, but weather forecast and climate models have serious deficiencies in representing the Arctic atmosphere, because of the special conditions that occur in this region. The cold ice surface and the advection of warm air aloft from the south result in a semi-continuous presence of a temperature inversion, known as the “Arctic inversion”, which is governed by interacting large-scale and local processes, such as surface fluxes and cloud formation.

Sammanfattning : Anthropogenic radionuclide concentrations have been determined in seawater and sediment samples collected in 1991, 1994 and 1996 in the Eurasian Arctic shelf and interior. Global fallout, releases from European reprocessing plants and the Chernobyl accident are identified as the three main sources. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The Arctic Ocean is an essential component of the global climate system, yet understanding of its geological archives is hampered by difficulties in age modelling. In addition to the scarcity of dateable microfossils, the palaeomagnetic record of Arctic sediments is unusual. LÄS MER
4. Quaternary paleoceanography of the Arctic Ocean : A study of sediment stratigraphy and physical properties
Sammanfattning : A Quaternary perspective on the paleoceanographic evolution of the central Arctic Ocean has been obtained in this PhD thesis by studying sediment cores from all of the Arctic’s major submarine ridges and plateaus. The included cores were mainly recovered during the Healy-Oden Trans-Arctic expedition in 2005 and the Lomonosov Ridge off Greenland expedition in 2007. LÄS MER
