Abstract:

The goal is to understand and parameterize the impact of air-sea interactions on mixed layer dynamics. There are also links to understanding the interactions between the mixed layer turbulence e.g., Langmuir circulation and internal waves or fronts, and to acoustic properties in the wavy, bubbly medium near the ocean surface.
