• Atlantic Water Pathways Along the North-Western Svalbard Shelf Mapped Using Vessel-Mounted Current Profilers 

      Menze, Sebastian; Ingvaldsen, Randi Brunvær; Haugan, Peter M.; Fer, Ilker; Sundfjord, Arild; Beszczynska-Moeller, Agnieszka; Falk-Petersen, Stig (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      A large amount of warm Atlantic water (AW) enters the Arctic as a boundary current through Fram Strait (West Spitsbergen Current [WSC]) and is the major oceanic heat source to the Arctic Ocean. Along the north‐western ...
    • Eddy-driven recirculation of Atlantic Water in Fram Strait 

      Hattermann, Tore; Isachsen, Pål Erik; von Appen, Wilken-Jon; Albretsen, Jon; Sundfjord, Arild (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Eddy‐resolving regional ocean model results in conjunction with synthetic float trajectories and observations provide new insights into the recirculation of the Atlantic Water (AW) in Fram Strait that significantly impacts ...

    • Pelagic ecosystem characteristics across the atlantic water boundary current from Rijpfjorden, Svalbard, to the Arctic ocean during summer (2010-2014) 

      Hop, Haakon; Assmy, Philipp; Wold, Anette; Sundfjord, Arild; Daase, Malin; Duarte, Pedro; Kwasniewski, Slawomir; Gluchowska, Marta; Wiktor, Józef Maria; Tatarek, Agnieszka; Wiktor, Józef Maria Jr.; Kristiansen, Svein; Fransson, Agneta Ingrid; Chierici, Melissa; Vihtakari, Mikko (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      The northern coast of Svalbard contains high-arctic fjords, such as Rijpfjorden (80°N 22°30′E). This area has experienced higher sea and air temperatures and less sea ice in recent years, and models predict increasing ...
    • Seasonality of the Physical and Biogeochemical Hydrography in the Inflow to the Arctic Ocean Through Fram Strait 

      Randelhoff, Achim; Reigstad, Marit; Chierici, Melissa; Sundfjord, Arild; Ivanov, Vladimir; Cape, Matthias; Vernet, Maria; Tremblay, Jean-Éric; Bratbak, Gunnar; Kristiansen, Svein (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018)
    • Variability and redistribution of heat in the Atlantic Water boundary current north of Svalbard 

      Renner, Angelika; Sundfjord, Arild; Janout, Markus; Ingvaldsen, Randi Brunvær; Beszczynska, Agnieszka; Pickart, Robert S.; Peréz-Hernández, M. Dolores (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      We quantify Atlantic Water heat loss north of Svalbard using year‐long hydrographic and current records from three moorings deployed across the Svalbard Branch of the Atlantic Water boundary current in 2012–2013. The ...
