Pagination or Media Count:
The main goal is to understand the detailed mechanisms of air-sea coupling at small spatial scales by performing LES of both air and ocean turbulent flows with coupled free-surface boundary conditions. The primary focus and an ultimate object is to obtain the physical foundation for the characterization and parameterization of the momentum, mass and heat transfer within the atmosphere-ocean wave boundary layer WBL.
