Ocean Waves Breaking and Marine Aerosol Fluxes

Stanislaw R. Massel

Institute of Oceanology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Sopot, Poland

This book presents a comprehensive study on the breaking of surface waves induced by wind and the relationship of breaking rate with marine aerosol fluxes. The book draws attention to the theoretical and experimental achievements in the study of wave breaking phenomena in deep water seas. In particular, it deals with the important problems of energy dissipation and the estimation of energy loss due to wave breaking in deep waters. The rationale behind existing methods and practical outcomes for the estimation of whitecap coverage of the sea surface and energy dissipation rate are given in detail.

The book also focuses on the fundamentals of marine aerosols and their generation. The text provides a comprehensive overview of the currently available experimental data on marine aerosol fluxes and presents theoretical methodology of the estimation of the intensity of sea aerosol production. The systematic analysis leads to a novel approach in the development of links between aerosol production with sea state parameters and its seasonal variation in deep water seas.

The book is intended for professionals and researchers in the areas of ocean physics and meteorology and also as a useful book for graduate students, PhD students, postdoctoral students, and engineers working on ocean environmental problems.
