  • Circulation and convection in the Irminger Sea 

    Våge, Kjetil (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-02)
    Aspects of the circulation and convection in the Irminger Sea are investigated using a variety of in-situ, satellite, and atmospheric reanalysis products. Westerly Greenland tip jet events are intense, small-scale wind ...
  • Revised circulation scheme North of the Denmark Strait 

    Våge, Kjetil; Pickart, Robert S.; Spall, Michael A.; Moore, G. W. K.; Valdimarsson, Heoinn; Torres, Daniel J.; Erofeeva, Svetlana Y.; Nilsen, Jan Even Ø. (2013-04-26)
    The circulation and water mass transports north of the Denmark Strait are investigated using recently collected and historical in-situ data along with an idealized numerical model and atmospheric reanalysis fields. Emphasis ...
  • Surprising return of deep convection to the subpolar North Atlantic Ocean in winter 2007–2008 

    Våge, Kjetil; Pickart, Robert S.; Thierry, Virginie; Reverdin, Gilles; Lee, Craig M.; Petrie, Brian; Agnew, Tom A.; Wong, Amy; Ribergaard, Mads H. (2008-11-07)
    The process of open-ocean convection in the subpolar North Atlantic Ocean forms a dense water mass that impacts the meridional overturning circulation and heat flux, and sequesters atmospheric carbon. In recent years the ...
  • What causes the location of the air-sea turbulent heat flux maximum over the Labrador Sea? 

    Moore, G. W. K.; Pickart, Robert S.; Renfrew, Ian A.; Våge, Kjetil (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-05-19)
    The Labrador Sea is a region of climatic importance as a result of the occurrence of oceanic wintertime convection, a process that is integral to the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation. This process requires large ...
  • Winter mixed layer development in the central Irminger Sea : the effect of strong, intermittent wind events 

    Våge, Kjetil; Pickart, Robert S. (American Meteorological Society, 2008-03)
    The impact of the Greenland tip jet on the wintertime mixed layer of the southwest Irminger Sea is investigated using in situ moored profiler data and a variety of atmospheric datasets. The mixed layer was observed to reach ...
  • Winter mixed-layer development in the central Irminger Sea : the effect of strong, intermittent wind events 

    Våge, Kjetil (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2006-09)
    The impact of the Greenland tip jet on the wintertime mixed-layer of the southwest Irminger Sea is investigated using in-situ moored profiler data and a variety of atmospheric data sets. The mixed-layer was observed to ...
