  • 1 December 1991
The Barents Sea is a shallow continental shelf sea. Generally, the physical conditions are determined by three main water masses: Coastal Water, (North) Atlantic Water, and Arctic Water. These threeExpand

Atlantic Water flow through the Barents and Kara Seas
Abstract The pathway and transformation of water from the Norwegian Sea across the Barents Sea and through the St. Anna Trough are documented from hydrographic and current measurements of the 1990s.Expand

Volume and Heat Transports to the Arctic Ocean Via the Norwegian and Barents Seas
The main aim of this paper has been to present a holistic view of the Atlantic water flow along the Norwegian Coast and into the Barents Sea. It has focused on the period starting in the mid-1990s,Expand

The seasonal cycle in the Atlantic transport to the Barents Sea during the years 1997–2001
Abstract The seasonal cycle in the Atlantic inflow to the Barents Sea is investigated by using 4-year long records from moored current meters, additional moorings of shorter duration, andExpand

Water fluxes through the Barents Sea
The physical oceanographic conditions in the Barents Sea depend mainly on the variability in the Atlantic inflow from the Norwegian Sea and the inflow of Arctic water from the Kara Sea and the ArcticExpand

An overview of the ecosystems of the Barents and Norwegian Seas and their response to climate variability
The principal features of the marine ecosystems in the Barents and Norwegian Seas and some of their responses to climate variations are described. The physical oceanography is dominated by the influxExpand

Mass and heat transports in the NE Barents Sea: Observations and models
Abstract The strait between Novaya Zemlya and Frans Josef Land, here called the Barents Sea Exit (BSX) is investigated using data obtained from a current-meter array deployed in 1991–1992, and twoExpand

Covariability in early growth and year-class strength of Barents Sea cod, haddock, and herring: the environmental link
We address the hypothesis that survival of a cohort is directly related to growth rates during the pre-recruit period for marine fish. This hypothesis is widely accepted, but supporting fieldExpand

Structure, biomass distribution, and energetics of the pelagic ecosystem in the Barents Sea: A synopsis
Biomass distribution and energetics of trophic levels in the pelagic ecosystem of the Barents Sea are presented as averages over several years for the whole Barents Sea using data from the researchExpand

Velocity field of the western entrance to the Barents Sea
[1] By the use of 4-year long records from moored current meters between 71°30′N and 73°30′N of the western entrance to the Barents Sea, the velocity field of the Atlantic inflow is examined. TheExpand
