Abstract:

The long-term goals are to contribute improvements to current physical understanding and modelling of interfacial processes fundamental to air-sea interaction fluxes, particularly those involving wave breaking and associated processes of spray and spume production. Closely allied is the complementary goal of utilizing these advances to improve the reliability of operational sea state and ocean weather forecasting models, particularly for severe sea states.
