hurricane and high-wind components of CBLAST must deal with the issue
of disruptions in the sea surface and how these influence the air-sea
exchanges of heat, moisture, and momentum. Breaking waves are the
most obvious of these surface disruptions; but the spray associated with
these waves is potentially the most important agent for augmenting the
usual interfacial transfers of heat, moisture, and momentum.
Consequently, the purpose of this web page is to provide a focal point for research on disruptions to the sea surface by CBLAST PIs and other researchers affiliated with CBLAST. Broadly, research on surface disruptions can include any of the following topics: sea spray, whitecaps; ocean bubbles; waves, especially breaking waves; and any modeling of these processes.
Listed below are recently published papers by CBLAST scientists that address these issues of sea spray and other surface disruptions. The email address at the end of each citation is for the corresponding author, who will be able to provide reprints.
