Abstract:

The long term goal of this project is to provide a new set of parameterizations of air-sea fluxes, which can be used as boundary conditions for high-resolution numerical models of ocean, atmosphere, and coupled oceanatmosphere systems. The new parameterizations will be constructed based on physical processes of the exchange of mass, momentum, heat, moisture, energy at the interface between the ocean and the atmosphere, and will be valid for the whole range of wind speeds.
