Part of: Air-Water Mass Transfer

Abstract: It is shown that airborne remote sensing can potentially relate gas mixing effects within a temporally evolving breaking wave to relectivity changes, and can identify the intensity of entrainment of individual breaking waves in an image of the ocean or lake surface.
