The goal is to investigate, theoretically and through analyzing existing data, the role that sea spray plays in transferring heat, moisture, and momentum across the air-sea interface, especially in high winds. Ultimately, I plan to develop simple, fast, physics-based parameterizations for these air-sea fluxes for use in large-scale models, especially those simulating tropical and extratropical storms.
