The atmosphere and the ocean are closely linked by the transfer of heat, gases and energy from one to the other. For example, energy from the wind blowing over the surface of the ocean produces waves and currents.
Similarly, the ocean surface absorbs most of the heat from the sun and the surface currents move this warm water around the world and warm the atmosphere from below.
This research investigates various issues in air-sea/ice interaction associated with the transfer of momentum, heat, moisture, trace gases, and particles at the wavy interface of the ocean
