Research
Area of Expertise: 
oceanography

I work with the development, validation and analyses of the biogeochemical module of the Northeast Atlantic and Arctic Ocean component of the European Copernicus marine forecasting service. I have research experience in coupled physical and numerical ocean models where I have developed, implemented and analysed models for various marine environments. Through the years I have focused on the areas concerning primary production, nutrient cycles and limitations, plankton functional types, carbon cycle and biological carbon pump, and their interactions with the physical environment.

ARC MFC: Copernicus Arctic Marine Services

The Arctic Marine Forecasting Center will provide operational forecasts of ocean currents, temperature, salinity, primary production, sea ice and waves out to 10 days ahead as well as reanalyses over the past 25 years.

The Arctic MFC will operate the NERSC version of the HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) for the whole Arctic domain at a resolution higher than 14 km (corresponding to 1/8th deg N/S), coupled with a sea ice model (NERSC version of the CICE model) and an ecosystem model. The EnKF will be used for assimilating all types of satellite and in situ observations available both in real time forecast and reanalysis modes. Essentially, the proposal offers the continuation of the products served by the MyOcean Follow-On “ARC MFC”.

EVA: Earth system modelling of climate Variations in the Anthropocene

Developement of the Norwegian Earth System Model (NorESM)

The term Anthropocene denotes the on-going time period since the beginning of the industrialisation. Human actions have changed the Earth’s climate and environment during this period. 

How can the changes up to now be quantified and how to prepare for the future? 

Earth system models (ESMs) are key tools to answer this question. They are climate models which next to physics also take into account chemical, biological, and ecosystem processes.

SEAMAN: Spatially resolved Ecosystem models and their Application to Marine MANagement (SEAMAN)

SEAMAN aims to improve ecosystem understanding and modelling and involves 6 institutes in 4 countries.

SEAMAN is a project within the program SEAS-ERA in the EU FP7 ERA-NET Scheme aiming to strengthen the coordination of national and regional research programmes.The project brings together experts from different countries in Europe, focusing on different parts of the ecosystem from the physical environment, to plankton, fish, invasive species and pollutants.

PAVE: Atlantic Water Pathways to the Arctic: Variability and Effects on Climate and Ecosystems

PAVE is the multidisciplinary research proposal focused on investigating the response of the Arctic sea ice and biological environment to variability and warming of the Atlantic Water (AW) inflow through Fram Strait and the Barents Sea.

Atlantic Water is the main source of heat, nutrients and biological energy (plankton) for the Arctic Ocean and will likely be an important pathway for introduction of new species in a future warmer climate. The AW cooling en route to the Arctic Ocean, and therefore its impact on atmosphere, cryospere and biosphere in the Arctic, depends strongly on the pathway along which it enters the Arctic Ocean.

Ocean Modeling

Scientific Group Name: 
Ocean Modeling
Performs research within modeling of physical ocean and marine ecosystem.

The Ocean Modeling Group at NERSC performs research in modeling of physical ocean processes, marine ecosystem and data assimilation with applications towards operational oceanography, marine research, and climate research. Our research centers around the ocean model HYCOM with ecosystem applications (HYCOM-NORWECOM and HYCOM-ECOSMO).  In collaboration with the Data Assimialtion Group (https://www.nersc.no/group/data-assimilation-and-forecasting-group) the EnKF is applied both for parameter and state estimation in these models.
