Sea-level rise projections for Sweden based on the new IPCC special report: The ocean and cryosphere in a changing climate
New sea-level rise projections for Sweden are presented, and a near cancellation is found between the increased Antarctic contribution and the decrease owing to the better treatment of spatial inhomogeneities. Expand
Variability of Warm Deep Water Inflow in a Submarine Trough on the Amundsen Sea Shelf
The ice shelves in the Amundsen Sea are thinning rapidly, and the main reason for their decline appears to be warm ocean currents circulating below the ice shelves and melting these from below.Expand
Circulation and Modification of Warm Deep Water on the Central Amundsen Shelf
AbstractThe circulation pathways and subsurface cooling and freshening of warm deep water on the central Amundsen Sea shelf are deduced from hydrographic transects and four subsurface moorings. TheExpand
Is the oceanic heat flux on the central Amundsen sea shelf caused by barotropic or baroclinic currents
The glaciers that drain the West Antarctic Ice Sheet into the Amundsen Sea are accelerating and experiencing increased basal melt of the floating ice shelves. Warm and salty deep water has beenExpand
Improving Oxygen Conditions in the Deeper Parts of Bornholm Sea by Pumped Injection of Winter Water
The oxygen consumption in the Bornholm Basin doubled from the 1970s to the 2000s, which qualitatively explains the observed increasing frequency and vertical extent of anoxia and hypoxia in the basin water in records from the end of the 1950s to present time. Expand
Control of the Oceanic Heat Content of the Getz‐Dotson Trough, Antarctica, by the Amundsen Sea Low
The changing supply of warm Circumpolar Deep Water (CDW) to the West Antarctic continental shelf is responsible for the basal melting and thinning of the West Antarctic ice shelves that has occurredExpand
Subinertial Oscillations on the Amundsen Sea Shelf, Antarctica
AbstractMooring data from the western flank of Dotson trough, Amundsen Sea shelf region, show the presence of barotropic oscillations with a period of 40–80 h. The oscillations are visible inExpand
The life cycle of small- to medium-sized icebergs in the Amundsen Sea Embayment
An object-based method for automatic iceberg detection has been applied to Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar images in the Amundsen Sea Embayment (ASE), Antarctica. The images were acquired between 1Expand
Ocean circulation in the Amundsen Sea, West Antarctica
The increase of mass loss from the Antarctic Ice Sheet is a significant contribution to global sea level rise. The most rapid changes are occurring in the Amundsen Sea area, where the thinning of theExpand
Resonant rossby waves on the outer continental shelf in the Amundsen Sea
Mooring data from the western flank of the deep Dotson Trough are presented with focus on short-term variability. The data show the presence of strong barotropic oscillations with period 40-60 hours.Expand
