    The relative magnitude of the effects of biological and physical settlement cues for cypris larvae of the acorn barnacle, Semibalanus balanoides L.2009Inngår i: Biofouling (Print), ISSN 0892-7014, E-ISSN 1029-2454, Vol. 25, nr 1, s. 35-44Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Barnacle cypris larvae respond to many cues when selecting a settlement site. The settlement of over a million larvae on tiles of different textures, orientations and densities of incumbent settlers was measured on the rocky intertidal at Great Cumbrae, Scotland. Half of the tiles were replaced every tide whereas the others simultaneously accumulated settlers. Factor effects varied on each tide, and converged in the accumulating deployment. Increasing incumbent density led to net loss of settlement, which was less probable on the textures on which fastest settlment occurred ('very fine'), and more probable on those on which settlement was slowest ('smooth'). More settlement occurred on down-facing orientations during daylight and vice versa. Cue ranks were non-linear, so a path analysis model quantified the relative influence of each factor. Gregariousness was the most influential cue measured, although unmeasured factors had greater effects, highlighting the complexity of settlement influences in this species.

    DEPLOYMENT OF NEW OBSERVING SYSTEMS WITHIN THE JERICO-RI2017Inngår i: OPERATIONAL OCEANOGRAPHY: Serving Sustainable Marine Development, 2017, s. 43-51Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    A key message of the JERICO-RI consortium (2014): “The complexity of the coastal ocean cannot be well understood if interconnection between physics, biogeochemistry and biology is not guaranteed. Such integration requires new technological developments allowing continuous monitoring of a larger set of parameters”. In agreement with this consideration, several new observing systems are developed, tested and deployed in the framework of the JERICO-NEXT H2020 project, amongst which a few of them will be presented as well as some preliminary results after the first deployments. Focus will be given on coastal transports and hydrology and on benthic biodiversity. In the first case, we will present a low cost 2D moored system dedicated to acquire vertical temperature profiles in shallow waters and its application to study the high frequency hydrodynamics. In addition, during one of the campaigns foreseen for testing these new systems in an area covered by HF radar, hydrographic and current measurements in the water column, together with phytoplankton and plastic sampling, were conducted. In the second case, attention will be drawn on a new floating pulled system dedicated to observe benthic habitat without disturbing it.

    NUTRIENT AND PERSISTENT POLLUTANT DEPOSITION ON THE BOTHNIAN BAY ICE AND SNOW FIELDS1995Inngår i: Water, Air and Soil Pollution, ISSN 0049-6979, E-ISSN 1573-2932, Vol. 84, nr 1-2, s. 187-201Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A study of atmospheric deposited nutrients and some persistent pollutants has been carried out on the ice and snow fields of the subarctic Bothnian Bay, the northernmost basin of the Baltic Sea. Total amounts of 600, 500 and 400 tons NO3-N, NH4-N and N-org-N, respectively are deposited in the snow while the corresponding amounts for P-tot-P is 40 tons. The corresponding amount for PCB and lindane are 1.0 and 0.2 kg, respectively. The measurements were carried out on the snow-covered ice four to six weeks old. A part of the deposited snow has been incorporated into the snow-ice and an attempt to estimate its mean thickness and its amount of nutrients has been made. The total amounts now reach 1700, 1300 and 1100 tons of NO3-N and NH4-N and N-org-N, respectively in the snow and ice together. The results obtained support the use of land-based stations in estimates of seasonal atmospheric nutrient deposition to the Bothnian Bay. The observed concentrations of chloroorganic compounds correspond to those land-based observations reported from the same latitude in the northern hemisphere and reported in literature.

    Dispersion in a stratified benthic boundary layer1989Inngår i: Tellus. Series A, Dynamic meteorology and oceanography, ISSN 0280-6495, E-ISSN 1600-0870, Vol. 41A, nr 2Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A dispersion model for the stratified benthic boundary layer is formulated. It is based on "small-scale" vertical dispersion and a "large-scale" horizontal flow field. A modified Langevin equation governs the stochastic vertical migration of an ensemble of marked fluid elements. These elements are spread out by the horizontal flow, determined by a one-dimensional model, which includes a two-equation (k - epsilon) turbulence scheme. The later yields statistical information necessary for the stochastic process. Statistical properties of the dispersion process are then calculated from the evolution of the ensemble of elements. A rather idealized case with a linearly stratified fluid subject to a suddenly imposed barotropic pressure gradient is considered. A quasi-geostrophic interior flow is formed with a benthic boundary layer at the bottom. Marked fluid elements are released at the bottom and then followed for several pendulum days. It is found that the dispersion process is well characterized by K = Cu(*)l/(where u(*) and l are the friction velocity at the bottom and the layer thickness, respectively), and where C approximate to 15. A similar relation but based on external parameters only, becomes: K = C-b vertical bar partial derivative P/partial derivative y vertical bar(2)/rho(2) f(5/2) N-1/2, where C-b approximate to 0.11 in the range N/f = 28- 88

    The Baltic Sea Experiment (BALTEX): A European contribution to the investigation of the energy and water cycle over a large drainage basin2001Inngår i: Bulletin of The American Meteorological Society - (BAMS), ISSN 0003-0007, E-ISSN 1520-0477, Vol. 82, nr 11, s. 2389-2413Artikkel, forskningsoversikt (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The Baltic Sea Experiment (BALTEX) is one of the five continental-scale experiments of the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment (GEWEX). More than 50 research groups from 14 European countries are participating in this project to measure and model the energy and water cycle over the large drainage basin of the Baltic Sea in northern Europe. BALTEX aims to provide a better understanding of the processes of the climate system and to improve and to validate the water cycle in regional numerical models for weather forecasting and climate studies. A major effort is undertaken to couple interactively the atmosphere with the vegetated continental surfaces and the Baltic Sea including its sea ice. The intensive observational and modeling phase BRIDGE, which is a contribution to the Coordinated Enhanced Observing Period of GEWEX, will provide enhanced datasets for the period October 1999-February 2002 to validate numerical models and satellite products. Major achievements have been obtained in an improved understanding of related exchange processes. For the first time an interactive atmosphere-ocean-land surface model for the Baltic Sea was tested. This paper reports on major activities and some results.

    BALTEX-an interdisciplinary research network for the Baltic Sea region2011Inngår i: Environmental Research Letters, ISSN 1748-9326, E-ISSN 1748-9326, Vol. 6, nr 4, artikkel-id 045205Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    BALTEX is an environmental research network dealing with the Earth system of the entire Baltic Sea drainage basin. Important elements include the water and energy cycle, climate variability and change, water management and extreme events, and related impacts on biogeochemical cycles. BALTEX was founded in 1993 as a GEWEX continental-scale experiment and is currently in its second 10 yr phase. Phase I (1993-2002) was primarily dedicated to hydrological, meteorological and oceanographic processes in the Baltic Sea drainage basin, hence mostly dealt with the physical aspects of the system. Scientific focus was on the hydrological cycle and the exchange of energy between the atmosphere, the Baltic Sea and the surface of its catchment. The BALTEX study area was hydrologically defined as the Baltic Sea drainage basin. The second 10 yr phase of BALTEX (Phase II: 2003-12) has strengthened regional climate research, water management issues, biogeochemical cycles and overarching efforts to reach out to stakeholders and decision makers, as well as to foster communication and education. Achievements of BALTEX Phase II have been the establishment of an assessment report of regional climate change and its impacts on the Baltic Sea basin (from hydrological to biological and socio-economic), the further development of regional physical climate models and the integration of biogeochemical and ecosystem models. BALTEX features a strong infrastructure, with an international secretariat and a publication series, and organizes various workshops and conferences. This article gives an overview of the BALTEX programme, with an emphasis on Phase II, with some examples from BALTEX-related research.

    A regional climate model for northern Europe: model description and results from the downscaling of two GCM control simulations2001Inngår i: Climate Dynamics, ISSN 0930-7575, E-ISSN 1432-0894, Vol. 17, nr 5-6, s. 339-359Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This work presents a regional climate model, the Rossby Centre regional Atmospheric model(RCA1), recently developed from the High Resolution Limited Area Model (HIRLAM). The changes in the HIRLAM parametrizations, necessary for climate-length integrations, are described. A regional Baltic Sea ocean model and a modeling system for the Nordic inland lake systems have been coupled with RCA1. The coupled system has been used to downscale 10-year time slices from two different general circulation model (GCM) simulations to provide high-resolution regional interpretation of large-scale modeling. A selection of the results from the control runs, i.e. the present-day climate simulations, are presented: large-scale free atmospheric fields, the surface temperature and precipitation results and results for the on-line simulated regional ocean and lake surface climates. The regional model modifies the surface climate description compared to the GCM simulations, but it is also substantially affected by the biases in the GCM simulations. The regional model also improves the representation of the regional ocean and the inland lakes, compared to the GCM results.

    Atmospheric Nutrient Input to the Baltic Sea from 1850 to 2006: A Reconstruction from Modeling Results and Historical Data2012Inngår i: Ambio, ISSN 0044-7447, E-ISSN 1654-7209, Vol. 41, nr 6, s. 549-557Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, a consistent basin-wise monthly time series of the atmospheric nutrient load to the Baltic Sea during 1850-2006 was compiled. Due to the lack of a long time series (1850-1960) of nutrient deposition to the Baltic Sea, the data set was compiled by combining a time series of deposition data at the Baltic Nest Institute from 1970 to 2006, published historical monitoring data and deposition estimates, as well as recent modeled Representative Concentration Pathways (RCP) emission estimates. The procedure for nitrogen compounds included estimation of the deposition in a few intermediate reference years, linear interpolation between them, and the decomposition of annual deposition into a seasonal deposition pattern. As no reliable monitoring results were found for the atmospheric deposition of phosphorus during the early period of our study, we used published estimates for the temporal and spatial pattern of the phosphorus load.

    Precipitation estimates over the Baltic Sea: Present state of the art2001Inngår i: Nordic Hydrology, ISSN 0029-1277, E-ISSN 1996-9694, Vol. 32, nr 4-5, s. 285-314Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Precipitation is one of the main components in the water balance, and probably the component determined with the greatest uncertainties. In the present paper we focus on precipitation (mainly rain) over the Baltic Sea as a part of the BAL-TEX project to examine the present state of the art concerning different precipitation estimates over that area. Several methods are used, with the focus on 1) interpolation of available synoptic stations; 2) a mesoscale analysis system including synoptic, automatic, and climate stations, as well as weather radar and an atmospheric model; and 3) measurements performed on ships. The investigated time scales are monthly and yearly and also some long-term considerations are discussed. The comparison shows that the differences between most of the estimates, when averaged over an extended period and a larger area, are in the order of 10-20%, which is in the same range as the correction of the synoptic gauge measurements due to wind and evaporation losses. In all data sets using gauge data it is important to include corrections for high winds. To improve the structure of precipitation over sea more focus is to be put on the use of radar data and combinations of radar data and other data. Interpolation methods that do not consider orographic effects must treat areas with large horizontal precipitation gradients with care. Due to the large variability in precipitation in time and space, it is important to use long time periods for climate estimates of precipitation. Ship measurements are a valuable contribution to precipitation information over sea, especially for seasonal and annual time scales.

    Net precipitation over the Baltic Sea during present and future climate conditions2002Inngår i: Climate Research (CR), ISSN 0936-577X, E-ISSN 1616-1572, Vol. 22, nr 1, s. 27-39Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    By using a process-oriented ocean model forced with data from a gridded synoptic database, net precipitation values (precipitation minus evaporation) over the Baltic Sea are obtained. For a range of realistic meteorological forcing the average annual value obtained from an 18 yr (1981-1998) simulation ranges between 1100 and 2500 m(3) s(-1). The monthly variations are significant with the highest values occurring in early summer and even negative values in late autumn. Ice is an important factor, and the net precipitation is close to zero in the southern basins with no ice. Calculated net precipitation for a 98 yr period (1901-1998) using river runoff and maximum ice extent indicates that the investigated 18 yr period was wetter than the almost 100 yr climate mean. A realistic climate estimate of net precipitation during the 20th century is estimated to be 1500 +/-1000 m(3) s(-1). The evaluation of 2 present day regional climate simulations indicated high precipitation, low evaporation, and thus excessive net precipitation compared to the climate estimate from this investigation. When simulating the effect of increased greenhouse gases, the change in net precipitation was positive but small due to the compensating effects of increased precipitation and increased evaporation associated with increased temperature and reduced ice.

    Measured and simulated latent and sensible heat fluxes at two marine sites in the Baltic Sea2001Inngår i: Boundary-layer Meteorology, ISSN 0006-8314, E-ISSN 1573-1472, Vol. 99, nr 1, s. 53-84Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, turbulent heat flux data from two sites within the Baltic Sea are compared with estimates from two models. The main focus is on the latent heat flux. The measuring sites are located on small islands close to the islands of Bornholm and Gotland. Both sites have a wide wind direction sector with undisturbed over-water fetch. Mean parameters and direct fluxes were measured on masts during May to December 1998. The two models used in this study are the regional-scale atmospheric model HIRLAM and the ocean model PROBE-Baltic. It is shown that both models overestimate the sensible and latent heat fluxes. The overestimation can, to a large extent, be explained by errors in the air-water temperature and humidity differences. From comparing observed and modelled data, the estimated 8-month mean errors in temperature and humidity are up to 1 degreesC and 1 g kg(-1),respectively. The mean errors in the sensible and latent heat fluxes for the same period are approximately 15 and 30 W m(-2), respectively. Bulk transfer coefficients used for calculating heat and humidity fluxes at the surface were shown to agree rather well with the measurements, at least for the unstable data. For stable stratification, the scatter in data is generally large, and it appears that the bulk formulation chosen overestimates turbulent heat fluxes.

    Fifty years of primary production measurements in the Baltic entrance region, trends and variability in relation to land-based input of nutrients2006Inngår i: Journal of Sea Research, ISSN 1385-1101, E-ISSN 1873-1414, Vol. 56, nr 1, s. 1-16Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Inter-annual variations and long-term trends in phytoplankton primary production (PP) within the Baltic entrance region (the Kattegat and the Belt Sea) are presented and discussed. The study employs the core of Danish monitoring data, with measurements at 6-8 different sites from the past 20-50 years. Temporal development of the annual PP is compared with changes and variations in the land-based nutrient inputs and to other, independent, Swedish and Danish PP data. Spatial and seasonal variations based on annual and monthly PP, respectively, are evaluated. There are large variations on all scales; annual PP ranges from 50 to 500 g C m(-2), with maximum values in some Danish fjords and minimum values in open waters during the 1950s. The Kattegat and the Sound have a lower mean production (135-165 g C m(-2); 1981-2000) than the Great and Little Belts (185-220 g C m(-2)). Compared to 1950s and 1960s, the daily PP has changed from being almost constant between March and October, to having two more distinct maxima, one in March and one between July and September. It is obvious that annual mean production has increased considerably since the 1950s, but also that this increase took place before 1980. For data after 1980, we find a co-variation between annual nutrient loads and regional mean PP; years of low total nitrogen (TN) and total phosphorus (TP) input to the region coincide with low PP and vice versa. Waste-water treatment and measures in agriculture have reduced the land-based input of TN by about 1/3 and input of TP by about 2/3 since the 1980s, enough to cause a substantial decrease in the surface water nutrient concentrations. A simultaneous, but weak downward trend in the regional mean PP can be seen up to 1997, after which the trend is broken. Higher production from 1998 is most likely an effect of changes in the method used for determination of PP. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    European climate in the late twenty-first century: regional simulations with two driving global models and two forcing scenarios2004Inngår i: Climate Dynamics, ISSN 0930-7575, E-ISSN 1432-0894, Vol. 22, nr 1, s. 13-31Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A basic analysis is presented for a series of regional climate change simulations that were conducted by the Swedish Rossby Centre and contribute to the PRUDENCE (Prediction of Regional scenarios and Uncertainties for Defining EuropeaN Climate change risks and Effects) project. For each of the two driving global models HadAM3H and ECHAM4/OPYC3, a 30-year control run and two 30-year scenario runs (based on the SRES A2 and B2 emission scenarios) were made with the regional model. In this way, four realizations of climate change from 1961-1990 to 2071-2100 were obtained. The simulated changes are larger for the A2 than the B2 scenario (although with few qualitative differences) and in most cases in the ECHAM4/OPYC3-driven (RE) than in the HadAM3H-driven (RH) regional simulations. In all the scenario runs, the warming in northern Europe is largest in winter or late autumn. In central and southern Europe, the warming peaks in summer when it locally reaches 10 degreesC in the RE-A2 simulation and 6-7 degreesC in the RH-A2 and RE-B2 simulations. The four simulations agree on a general increase in precipitation in northern Europe especially in winter and on a general decrease in precipitation in southern and central Europe in summer, but the magnitude and the geographical patterns of the change differ markedly between RH and RE. This reflects very different changes in the atmospheric circulation during the winter half-year, which also lead to quite different simulated changes in windiness. All four simulations show a large increase in the lowest minimum temperatures in northern, central and eastern Europe, most likely due to reduced snow cover. Extreme daily precipitation increases even in most of those areas where the mean annual precipitation decreases.

    Physical modelling of the Akkajaure reservoir2003Inngår i: Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, ISSN 1027-5606, E-ISSN 1607-7938, Vol. 7, nr 3, s. 268-282Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes the seasonal temperature development in the Akkajaure reservoir. one of the largest Swedish reservoirs. It lies in the headwaters of the river Lulealven in northern Sweden: it is 60 km long and 5 km wide with a maximum depth of 92 m. The maximum allowed variation in surface water level is 30 m. The temperature field in the reservoir is important for many biochemical processes. A one-dimensional lake model of the Akkajaure reservoir is developed from a lake model by Sahlberg (1983 and 1988). The dynamic eddy viscosity is calculated by a two equation turbulence model, a k-epsilon model and the hypolimnic eddy diffusivity formulation which is a function of the stability frequency (Hondzo et al., 1993). A comparison between calculated and measured temperature profiles showed a maximum discrepancy of 0.5-1.0degreesC over the period 1999-2002. Except for a few days in summer, the water temperature is vertically homogeneous. Over that period of years, a weak stratification of temperature occurred on only one to two weeks a year on different dates in July and August. This will have biological consequences.

    Light limitation of primary production in high latitude reservoirs2005Inngår i: Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, ISSN 1027-5606, E-ISSN 1607-7938, Vol. 9, nr 6, s. 707-720Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    To explore the effects of vertical mixing on the primary production in a northern reservoir, a Lagrangian particle dispersion model was coupled to a 1-D reservoir model where the vertical mixing was calculated using a k-epsilon model together with an empirically-based deep-water eddy viscosity. The primary production of each phytoplankton cell is assumed to be a function of the ambient light and not to be nutrient limited. The photoadaption follows first-order kinetics where the photoadaptive variables, alpha, beta, and P(m), describe the coefficients of the photosynthesis-irradiance curve. The model is applied to the northern reservoir Akkajaure, which is strongly regulated with a mean and maximum depth of 30 m and 100 m respectively. Based on the release of 1000 particles (plankton), the model calculated the mean primary production of each plankton, during four different growing seasons. Vertical mixing has a substantial effect on the vertical distribution of phytoplankton and, thus, on the primary production in a reservoir. It was found that primary production was greater in a cold summer with weak stratification than in a warm summer when the reservoir was more stratified.

    Long-term trends in Secchi depth in the Baltic Sea1996Inngår i: Limnology and Oceanography, ISSN 0024-3590, E-ISSN 1939-5590, Vol. 41, nr 2, s. 346-351Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Nutrient loads to the Baltic Sea have increased during the last century, and primary production has probably also risen. However, the evidence of such a rise is circumstantial, and most of the available findings concerning primary production cover only brief time periods. A more appropriate type of data in this area is Secchi disk measurements. We present the results of trend tests applied to Secchi depth values recorded during two discrete time periods: 1919-1939 and 1969-1991. We performed a step trend test to compare the data from the two periods and applied a monotonic trend test to the later series. Both tests showed that Secchi depth decreased by similar to 0.05 m yr(-1) during both periods. Calculations of changes in chlorophyll concentrations suggest a yearly increase of similar to 1%. Extending the calculations to represent primary production indicates an increase of slightly <1% yr(-1). These calculations, however, are unreliable due to substantial uncertainty regarding the relationships between Secchi depth and chlorophyll concentration and chlorophyll and primary production.

    Abstract [en]

    The recently reported tendencies toward decreasing total amounts of silicate in the Baltic Sea are investigated by use of non-parametric trend analysis. The period 1968-1986 showed significant falling trends in surface waters from the whole system. The deepest parts of the Baltic proper did in contrast reveal strong increasing trends. These trends are more pronounced during the latter part of the analysis period which is characterized by stagnant conditions in the Baltic proper. These conditions have been prevailing since the major inflow in 1976. The causes of the observed changes are unclear. The increased load of nutrients and accompanying increase in primary production is, however, one factor. Another is coupled to the stagnation conditions of the Baltic Proper.

    An algorithm based on sea-level pressure fluctuations to identify major Baltic inflow events2014Inngår i: Tellus. Series A, Dynamic meteorology and oceanography, ISSN 0280-6495, E-ISSN 1600-0870, Vol. 66, artikkel-id 23452Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Major Baltic inflows are an important process to sustain the sensitive steady state of the Baltic Sea. We introduce an algorithm to identify atmospheric variability favourable for major Baltic inflows. The algorithm is based on sea-level pressure (SLP) fields as the only parameter. Characteristic SLP pattern fluctuations include a precursory phase of 30 days and 10 days of inflow period. The algorithm identifies successfully the majority of observed major Baltic inflows between 1961 and 2010. In addition, the algorithm finds some occurrences which cannot be related to observed inflows. In these cases with favourable atmospheric conditions, inflows were precluded by contemporaneously existing saline water masses or strong freshwater supply. Moreover, the algorithm clearly identifies the stagnation periods as a lack of SLP variability favourable for MBIs. This indicates that the lack of inflows is mainly a consequence of missing atmospheric forcing during this period. The only striking inflow which is not identified by the algorithm is the event in January 2003. We demonstrate that this is due to the special evolution of SLP fields which are not comparable with any other event. Finally, the algorithm is applied to an ensemble of scenario simulations. The result indicates that the number of atmospheric events favourable for major Baltic inflows increases slightly in all scenarios.

    A regional climate model simulation over the Baltic Sea region for the last Millennium2011Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Variabilitet och långsiktig klimatförändring i Fennoskandien undersöks i en 1000 år lång under det senaste milleniet i en 1000 år lång klimatmodellsimulering. Vi använder Rossby Centres regionala klimatmodell (RCA3) med randvärden från en global klimatmodell (GCM). Effekten av variabilitet i solinstrålning, ändrade astronomiska förhållanden och ändringar i växthusgskoncentrationer har använts för att driva modellerna. Resultaten visar att RCA3 genererar en medeltida varm period (MCA) som är den varmaste under hela milleniet undantaget 1900-talet. Dessutom visar resultaten på en kall ”Lilla Istid” (LIA). I simuleringen motsvarar dessa perioder 1100- 1299 (MCA) samt 1600-1799 (LIA). Det här överensstämmer med rekonstruktioner och kan till största delen relateras till ändringar i solinstrålning. Vi fann vidare att variabiliteten över flera decennier har en betydande effekt på klimatet under MCA och LIA. Variabiliteten över flera decennier kan ibland också förklara motsägelsefulla rekonstruktioner om dessa är representativa för kortare icke sammanfallande perioder. I tillägg till tidsserier, undersöker vi också rumsliga mönster hos temperatur, lufttryck i havsytans nivå, nederbörd, molntäcke, vindhastighet och byighet för både säsongs- och årsmedelvärden. De flesta parametrarna visar störst skillnad mellan olika perioder för vintersäsongen. Som exempel kan nämnas att vintern under MCA var 1-2.5 K varmare än under LIA sett som medelvärde över flera decennier.

    The climate in the Baltic Sea region during the last millennium simulated with a regional climate model2012Inngår i: Climate of the Past, ISSN 1814-9324, E-ISSN 1814-9332, Vol. 8, nr 5, s. 1419-1433Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Variability and long-term climate change in the Baltic Sea region is investigated for the pre-industrial period of the last millennium. For the first time dynamical down-scaling covering the complete millennium is conducted with a regional climate model in this area. As a result of changing external forcing conditions, the model simulation shows warm conditions in the first centuries followed by a gradual cooling until ca. 1700 before temperature increases in the last centuries. This long-term evolution, with a Medieval Climate Anomaly (MCA) and a Little Ice Age (LIA), is in broad agreement with proxy-based reconstructions. However, the timing of warm and cold events is not captured at all times. We show that the regional response to the global climate anomalies is to a strong degree modified by the large-scale circulation in the model. In particular, we find that a positive phase of the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) simulated during MCA contributes to enhancing winter temperatures and precipitation in the region while a negative NAO index in the LIA reduces them. In a second step, the regional ocean model (RCO-SCOBI) is used to investigate the impact of atmospheric changes onto the Baltic Sea for two 100 yr time slices representing the MCA and the LIA. Besides the warming of the Baltic Sea, the water becomes fresher at all levels during the MCA. This is induced by increased runoff and stronger westerly winds. Moreover, the oxygen concentrations in the deep layers are slightly reduced during the MCA. Additional sensitivity studies are conducted to investigate the impact of even higher temperatures and increased nutrient loads. The presented experiments suggest that changing nutrient loads may be more important determining oxygen depletion than changes in temperature or dynamic feedbacks.

    Variability and trends of major stratospheric warmings in simulations under constant and increasing GHG concentrations2013Inngår i: Climate Dynamics, ISSN 0930-7575, E-ISSN 1432-0894, Vol. 40, nr 7-8, s. 1733-1747Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Ensemble simulations with a coupled ocean-troposphere-stratosphere model for the pre-industrial era (1860 AD), late twentieth century (1990 AD) greenhouse gas (GHG) concentrations, the SRES scenarios B1, A1B, A2, as well as stabilization experiments up to the Twenty-third century with B1 and A1B scenario GHG concentrations at their values at 2100, have been analyzed with regard to the occurrence of major sudden stratospheric warmings (SSWs). An automated algorithm using 60A degrees N and 10 hPa zonal wind and the temperature gradient between 60A degrees N and the North Pole is used to identify this phenomenon in the large data set. With 1990 CO2 concentrations (352 ppmv), the frequency of simulated SSWs in February and March is comparable to observation, but they are underestimated during November to January. All simulations show an increase in the number of SSWs from the pre-industrial period to the end of the twenty-first century, indicating that the increase of GHG is also reflected in the number of sudden warmings. However, a high variability partially masks the underlying trend. Multi-century averages during the stabilization periods indicate that the increase of SSWs is linear to the applied radiative forcing. A doubling of SSWs occurs when the GHG concentration reaches the level of the A2 scenario at the end of the twenty-first century (836 ppmv). The increase in SSWs in the projections is caused by a combination of increased wave flux from the troposphere and weaker middle atmospheric zonal winds.

    Environmental Impacts-Marine Biogeochemistry2015Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Marine biogeochemistry deals with the budgets and transformations of biogeochemically reactive elements such as carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus. Inorganic nitrogen and phosphorus compounds are the major nutrients and control organic matter (biomass) production in the surface water. Due to various anthropogenic activities, the input of these nutrients into the Baltic Sea has increased drastically during the last century and has enhanced the net organic matter production by a factor of 2-4 (eutrophication). This has led to detrimental oxygen depletion and hydrogen sulphide production in the deep basins of the Baltic Sea. Model simulations based on the Baltic Sea Action Plan (BSAP) indicate that current eutrophication and thus extension of oxygen-depleted areas cannot be reversed within the next hundred years by the proposed nutrient reduction measures. Another environmental problem is related to decreasing pH (acidification) that is caused by dissolution of the rising atmospheric CO2. Estimates indicate a decrease in pH by about 0.15 during the last 1-2 centuries, and continuation of this trend may have serious ecological consequences. However, the concurrent increase in the alkalinity of the Baltic Sea may have significantly counteracted acidification.

    Vattenståndsdynamik längs Sveriges kust2018Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    För att skapa ett samhälle väl anpassat till dagens och framtidens havsnivåer behövs besluts- och planeringsunderlag. Skyddsåtgärder och designnivåer för kustskydd är högaktuella frågor och många aktörer är intresserade av information kring potentiella maxnivåer för vattenstånd på olika tidshorisonter. SMHI har därför analyserat de mätdataserier för havsvattenstånd som idag finns tillgängliga från stationer längs Sveriges kust. Det primära syftet var att ta fram en metod för att beräkna det högsta möjliga havsvattenståndet vid mätstationer längs Sveriges kust. Metoden beskrivs i Schöld m.fl.(2017).

    I föreliggande rapport beskrivs allmänt havsnivåer, mätdata, modeller och de resultat som erhölls från olika analyser av mätdata. Mätstationerna indelades i åtta olika kustområden inom vilka vattenståndet samvarierar. Det väder och de specifika stormbanor, som under de senaste 40 åren orsakat de högsta stormfloderna på olika platser längs den svenska kusten kartlades, och vattenståndsdynamiken vid olika mätstationer studerades.

    Kortvariga höjningar av vattenståndet undersöktes, både med avseende på kraftiga vattenståndshöjningar orsakade av passerande väderssystem och med avseende på förhöjda utgångslägen, som i sin tur kan bidra till att stormfloder blir extra höga.

    Det högsta beräknade havsvattenstånd som presenteras är de högsta möjliga stormfloder som skulle kunna inträffa baserat på empiriska analyser av mätdata vid de olika stationerna. Kända extrema händelser, som ägt rum före det att vattenståndet började registreras, ingår inte eftersom de inte har kunnat kvantifieras. Framtida förändringar av medelvattenståndet orsakade av den globala klimatförändringen behandlas inte i denna rapport.

    Resultaten från studien visar att vattennivåerna i Östersjön generellt blir som högst i Bottenviken och i de södra delarna. De höga vattenstånden i större delen av Östersjön är inte lika höga som på västkusten och i Öresund. I Östersjön förefaller också utgångsläget, havsnivån före stormen, utgöra en större del av den resulterande vattenståndshöjningen. Vid flera stationer i de centrala delarna av Östersjön är havsnivån före storm i stort sett hälften av det högsta beräknade havsvattenståndet. Längs västkusten är istället de nettohöjningar som orsakas av rena stormeffekter den viktigaste stormflodskomponenten. Lokala förhållanden, till exempel om stationen är belägen vid en öppen, rak kust eller inne i en vik, påverkar hur högt vattenståndet kan förväntas bli på en viss plats.

    Analyserna visar att stormfloder skulle kunna bli omkring 20-40 cm högre än hittills observerade maximala nivåer i olika kustområden. En osäkerhetsmarginal på runt +15 cm är lämplig att addera, särskilt i de områden där tidvatten förekommer.

    Regionally coupled atmosphere-ocean-sea ice-marine biogeochemistry model ROM: 1. Description and validation2015Inngår i: Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems, ISSN 1942-2466, Vol. 7, nr 1, s. 268-304Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The general circulation models used to simulate global climate typically feature resolution too coarse to reproduce many smaller-scale processes, which are crucial to determining the regional responses to climate change. A novel approach to downscale climate change scenarios is presented which includes the interactions between the North Atlantic Ocean and the European shelves as well as their impact on the North Atlantic and European climate. The goal of this paper is to introduce the global ocean-regional atmosphere coupling concept and to show the potential benefits of this model system to simulate present-day climate. A global ocean-sea ice-marine biogeochemistry model (MPIOM/HAMOCC) with regionally high horizontal resolution is coupled to an atmospheric regional model (REMO) and global terrestrial hydrology model (HD) via the OASIS coupler. Moreover, results obtained with ROM using NCEP/NCAR reanalysis and ECHAM5/MPIOM CMIP3 historical simulations as boundary conditions are presented and discussed for the North Atlantic and North European region. The validation of all the model components, i.e., ocean, atmosphere, terrestrial hydrology, and ocean biogeochemistry is performed and discussed. The careful and detailed validation of ROM provides evidence that the proposed model system improves the simulation of many aspects of the regional climate, remarkably the ocean, even though some biases persist in other model components, thus leaving potential for future improvement. We conclude that ROM is a powerful tool to estimate possible impacts of climate change on the regional scale.

    Eutrophication status of the North Sea, Skagerrak, Kattegat and the Baltic Sea in present and future climates: A model study2014Inngår i: Journal of Marine Systems, ISSN 0924-7963, E-ISSN 1879-1573, Vol. 132, s. 174-184Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A method to combine observations and an ensemble of ecological models has been used to assess eutrophication. Using downscaled forcing from two GCMs under the A1B emission scenario, an assessment of the eutrophication status was made for a control (19702000) and a future climate (20702100) period. By using validation results from a hindcast to compute individual weights between the models, an assessment of eutrophication is done using a set of threshold values. The final classification distinguishes between three categories: problem area, potential problem area, and non-problem area, in accordance with current management practice as suggested by the Oslo and Paris Commissions (OSPAR) and the Helsinki Commission (HELCOM). For the control run the assessment indicates that the Kattegat, the Danish Straits, the Gulf of Finland, the Gotland Basin as well as main parts of the Arkona Basin, the Bornholm Basin, and the Baltic proper may be classified as problem areas. The main part of the North Sea and also the Skagerrak are non-problem areas while the main parts of the Gulf of Bothnia, Gulf of Riga and the entire southeastern continental coast of the North Sea may be classified as potential problem areas. In the future climate scenarios most of the previous potential problem areas in the Baltic Sea have become problem areas, except for the Bothnian Bay where the situation remain fairly unchanged. In the North Sea there seems to be no obvious changes in eutrophication status in the projected future climate.

    The year 2005: An environmental status report of the Skagerrak, Kattegat and the North Sea2009Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This is the second year joint status report for the North Sea, Skagerrak and Kattegat area (Fig.1) carried out by SMHI, IMR and DHI as a part of the project BANSAI, supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Sea and Air Group. The aim of the project is to integrate marine observations and ecological model simulations in an annual assessment of the Baltic and the North seas. The present report is mainly based on model estimates of some of the indicators suggested by the OSPAR Common Procedure (c.f. Appendix) for the identification of the eutrophication status of the maritime area (OSPAR, 2002 and 2003). This first joint report serve as a basis for the on-going discussions about the ecological quality indicators included in the assessment, and the way to merge results from different models and observations for the assessment.Estimations of river discharges and model results are used to describe the degree of nutrient enrichment (Category I) defined by the riverine loadings of nitrogen and phosphorus, and winter surface concentrations and ratios of DIN and DIP. The direct effects of nutrient enrichment during the growing season (Category II) are described in terms of the mean and maximum chlorophyll concentrations and model estimations of primary production. The ratio between diatoms and flagellates is used as an indicator of region specific phytoplankton indicator species (Category II). The indirect effects of nutrient enrichment (Category III) are discussed in terms of oxygen depletion in bottom waters. Estimations of region specific background concentrations and threshold values are gathered from the literature and used for the model assessment.The three model systems used for the joint assessment (Fig. 2) cover different parts of the North Sea, Skagerrak and the Kattegat area. Detailed descriptions of the models may be found on the websites presented below the figure.In section 2 the key messages from this assessment will be presented. In section 3, each country gives a brief observations overview for 2005 and some references to other sources and reports that might be useful for the readers. The methods of the assessment are described in section 4. Statistical characteristics of model results and in-situ data are presented in section 5 and the model assessment of eutrophication status is done in section 6. Conclusions and comments to the assessment are presented in section 7.

    Patterns of current-induced transport in the surface layer of the Gulf of Finland2011Inngår i: Boreal environment research, ISSN 1239-6095, E-ISSN 1797-2469, Vol. 16, s. 49-63Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The Lagrangian trajectory model TRACMASS based on an Eulerian field of velocities (calculated using the Rossby Centre Ocean Model), combined with relevant statistical analysis, is used for the identification of transport patterns in the surface layer of the Gulf of Finland from 1987-1991. The analysis of velocity fields and properties of net and bulk transport (the distance between the start and end positions of a trajectory, and the total length of the trajectory, respectively) shows the presence of semi-persistent (with a typical lifetime from a week to a few months) features of the surface-layer dynamics, a part of which evidently cannot be extracted directly from the velocity fields. The modelled surface dynamics mostly hosts an Ekman-type drift and, in yearly average, contains an anticyclonic gyre occupying the western part of the gulf. The prevailing transport directions to the east and slightly to the south match the direction of the Ekman surface drift created by predominant south-western winds. The spatial patterns of the net transport substantially vary over different seasons. The most intense net transport along the coasts occurs in the western and central parts of the gulf but contains relatively intense largely meridional transport pathways in some seasons.

    The Potential of Current- and Wind-Driven Transport for Environmental Management of the Baltic Sea2014Inngår i: Ambio, ISSN 0044-7447, E-ISSN 1654-7209, Vol. 43, nr 1, s. 94-104Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The ever increasing impact of the marine industry and transport on vulnerable sea areas puts the marine environment under exceptional pressure and calls for inspired methods for mitigating the impact of the related risks. We describe a method for preventive reduction of remote environmental risks caused by the shipping and maritime industry that are transported by surface currents and wind impact to the coasts. This method is based on characterizing systematically the damaging potential of the offshore areas in terms of potential transport to vulnerable regions of an oil spill or other pollution that has occurred in a particular area. The resulting maps of probabilities of pollution to be transported to the nearshore and the time it takes for the pollution to reach the nearshore are used to design environmentally optimized fairways for the Gulf of Finland, Baltic Proper, and south-western Baltic Sea.

    Sveriges vattentillgång utifrån perspektivet vattenbrist och torka: – Delrapport 1 i regeringsuppdrag om åtgärder för att motverka vattenbrist i ytvattentäkter.2019Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Denna rapport tar upp begreppen torka och vattenbrist ur ett Svenskt perspektiv, undersöker vad som kan ge upphov till vattenbrist och ger en bild av Sveriges vattentillgångar.

    Vattenbrist betyder att det finns ett större behov av rent vatten än vad som finns tillgängligt. Bristen är därför starkt kopplad till användandet av vatten.

    Klimatförändringarna gör Sverige varmare vilket påverkar tillgången till vatten.I genomsnitt väntas vintrarna att bli varmare och mer nederbördsrika vilket leder till mer vatten. Varmare temperaturer innebär också att avdunstningen ökar under sommarhalvåret vilket kan ge en minskad tillgång till vatten, särskilt i södra Sverige. Klimatförändringarna förväntas också leda till kraftigare skyfall. Denna typ av nederbörd kan vara svårt för mark och växter att ta tillvara men kan ge upphov till översvämningar. Mildare vintrar förändrar förutsättningar för snö, vilket särskilt påverkar vattendragen i landets norra delar.

    Under somrarna 2016, 2017 och 2018 fick delar av Sverige uppleva problem med vattenbrist. Orsakerna till de minskade vattentillgångarna var olika och problemen varierade över åren och mellan områden. Delar av landet har de senaste åren fått känna på effekterna av ett varmare klimat. Det har visat hur viktigt det är att vi anpassar oss för att kunna klara dessa förändringar. Det finns många faktorer som påverkar tillgången på vatten i ett område, men följande tre kategorier sammanfattar de flesta faktorer:

    • Klimat – exempelvis nederbörd och temperatur
    • Magasinerande förmåga – hur mycket vatten området kan mellanlagra
    • Vattenanvändning – hur mycket vatten som används

    Som land har Sverige god tillgång till sötvatten. Vattenbrist kan ändå uppstå. Lokalt ser vattentillgången och vattenanvändandet väldigt olika ut vilket kan leda till vattenbrist eller att prioriteringar krävs mellan olika typ av vattenanvändning. Det är tydligt att det behövs gemensamt arbete över alla sektorer med vattenresursplanering i ett avrinningsområde.

    Modellstudie för att undersöka åtgärdersom påverkar lågflöden: – Delrapport 2 i regeringsuppdrag om åtgärder för att motverkavattenbrist i ytvattentäkter.2019Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    2018 fick SMHI i uppdrag via myndighetens regleringsbrev att genomföra en studie av åtgärder för att motverka vattenbrist i ytvattentäkter. Arbetet är pågående och har genomförts i flera steg. Detta är den andra delrapporten  som tagits fram i arbetet hittills. Här presenteras resultaten från en förstudie som genomförts med syfte att utvärdera olika åtgärders effekt på lågvattenföring och på så sätt utvärdera dess förmåga att förebygga vattenbrist i ytvattentäkter. Syftet var att lägga grunden för uppbyggnaden av ett interaktivt verktyg där kommuner eller verksamhetsutövare själva ska kunna bedöma vattentillgången vid specifika platser och tidpunkter utifrån uppgifter om olika vattenuttag och regleringar inom avrinningsområdet.

    Störst påverkan på vattentillgången har vädret. Det finns dock åtgärder som kan minska risken för vattenbrist i ytvattentäkter. Åtgärderna är främst för förebyggande arbete, men vissa kan även vara aktuella under en bristsituation.

    Den effektivaste åtgärden för att utnyttja ett områdes vatten är att använda sjöar som reglermagasin för att säkra vattentillgången i vattentäkten, men det förutsätter att det finns sjöar att reglera. I södra Sverige finns oftast en god tillgång på vatten vintertid medan bristsituationer förekommer under sommaren  och början av hösten. Med regleringar kan en del av vattnet från perioder med hög tillgång på vatten samlas i sjöar och tappas av under perioder med låg vattentillgång. Vattenregleringar är vanliga idag, främst för vattenkraftändamål, men förekommer även för dricksvattenförsörjning. SMHI ser att detta är en aspekt som borde tas hänsyn till i områden som riskerar vattenbrist, nu när vattendomar omprövas i stor skala.

    Att utföra åtgärder på diken och andra vattendrag kan ha en lokal effekt, men ger inte tillräckligt stor effekt för att påverka vattenflödena i större skala. Att anlägga våtmarker har också främst en lokal effekt, eftersom det krävs så stora arealer våtmark för att ge effekt på vattentillgången i ytvattentäkter

    I områden med stora vattenuttag påverkas lågflödet om dessa ändras. Eftersom kunskap ofta saknas om vattenuttagens storlek är det svårt att veta hur stor denna effekt blir. Det är också svårt att ta fram föreskrifter som gör att begränsningarna kan genomföras i praktiken. Åtgärder som att införa bevattningsdammar kan ha stor potential förutsatt att de fylls på under tid av högflöden och töms under lågflöden. Effekten blir då att vattenuttag från det naturliga vattendraget minskar under lågflödesperioder.

    Det pågående arbetet med att motverka vattenbrist i ytvattentäkter fokuserar på att utveckla en metodik för hållbar vattenresursförvaltning. Det är tydligt att det behövs gemensamt arbete över alla sektorer med vattenresursplanering i ett avrinningsområde. Det verktyg som nu utvecklas bidrar till att vattenresursplaneringen underlättas och att vattenresurserna kan förvaltas på ett långsiktigt hållbart sätt.

    Numerical simulations of frazil ice dynamics in the upper layers of the ocean1998Inngår i: Cold Regions Science and Technology, ISSN 0165-232X, E-ISSN 1872-7441, Vol. 28, nr 1, s. 29-44Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The frazil ice dynamics in a turbulent Ekman layer have been investigated using a mathematical model. The model is based on the conservation equations for mean momentum, energy and salinity, and employs a two-equation turbulence model for the determination of turbulent diffusion coefficients. A crystal number continuity equation is used for the prediction of the frazil ice dynamics. This equation considers several processes of importance, as for example turbulent diffusion, gravitational up-drift, flocculation/break-up and growth. The results focus on the frazil ice characteristics in the upper layers of the ocean, like suspended ice volume, ice crystals per m(3), vertical distributions, etc. From the idealized calculations, it is indicated that a large number of ice crystals can be mixed into the ocean during freezing. However, the amount of ice in suspension, measured as vertically integrated ice thickness, adds only a minor part to the total surface ice budget. Small crystals are mixed deep in the ocean while the large ones are found only in the top of the mixed layer. Knowledge about the vertical distribution of ice crystals of different sizes, which is calculated from the model, should be of importance when analysing processes as formation of ice covers in the ocean and ice-sediment or ice-algae interaction.

    SIMULATION OF SUPERCOOLING AND SIZE DISTRIBUTION IN FRAZIL ICE DYNAMICS1994Inngår i: Cold Regions Science and Technology, ISSN 0165-232X, E-ISSN 1872-7441, Vol. 22, nr 3, s. 221-233Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of the work presented is to formulate a mathematical description of frazil ice dynamics. The formulation is to be in balance with the current knowledge of the physical processes, for example secondary nucleation. As the knowledge of some of these processes is fragmentary, this means that a conceptually simple formulation is sought. A number of processes are known to influence the supercooling rate and the frazil ice production. The present formulation accounts for the following processes: initial seeding, secondary nucleation, gravitational removal, growth due to cooling of water volume and flocculation/break up. Equations are formulated for these present considering a resolution in time and radius of particles but not in space (well-mixed jar). The equations are solved using a simple explicit numerical scheme. Preliminary results indicate that the model can be calibrated to describe the experimental results reported in the literature. It is mainly the supercooling curves that are used for comparison but some information about the crystal size distribution is also considered. It is to be noted that the model is calibrated to fit the experiments, due to the lack of detailed mathematical description of some of the physical processes. Sensitivity analysis is also used in order to establish that the model behaves according to experimental findings and expectations. The main conclusion of the study is that a fairly simple mathematical model can be formulated and calibrated, which fits the experimental data reported in the literature hitherto. It is further concluded that a resolution in radial space gives additional insight into the dynamics of the process. The evolution of the size distribution and its sensitivity to seeding and dissipation rate has been predicted with results that look physically plausible.

    Sea surface temperatures in waters surrounding Sweden1974Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ett av delprojekten i den havsisforskning som på uppdrag av Sjöfartsverket bedrivs vid SMHI rör havets och isens termodynamik. Vid dessa studier spelar ytvattentemperaturen en fundamental roll. Under de senaste åren har därför mätverksarnheten intensiverats, speciellt ute till havs, båtar har utrustats med nya fjärrinstrument, insamlingsförarandet har rationaliserats, ytvattentemparaturens fördelning har analyserats varannan dag och informationen har lagrats i digital form.

    Instrumenten och deras noggrannhet har beskrivits och mätmetoderna jämförts. Dessutom har ytvattentemperaturkartor för perioden juli 1973 - juli 1974, som visar variationerna under året, tendenser till cirkulationsmönster, kusteffekter och "up-welling" diskuterats.
