The long-term goal is to understand the wave-related mechanisms that regulate and produce variability in air-sea fluxes under low to moderately-high wind conditions. The first objective is to use infrared techniques to determine both the wave-related surface processes and their respective rates of air-sea exchange. The second objective is to combine these data with turbulence and air-sea flux measurements by myself and other investigators to determine the extent to which variability in air-sea fluxes is related to wave phenomena.
