Abstract : The long-term goals are to contribute improvements in current physical understanding and modeling of interfacial processes fundamental to air-sea interaction fluxes, particularly those involving wave breaking and spray droplet production. These advances will improve the reliability of operational sea state and ocean weather forecasting models, particularly for severe to extreme sea states.
