HIGH WIND SPEED REGIME

Breaking waves intermittently disrupt the air-sea interface. With increasing wind speed, the sharp interface between the air and water disappears for longer intervals (Figure 6-1). Under extreme conditions of very high wind speeds, the concept of the air-sea interface becomes problematic: A two-phase environment with gradual transition from bubblefilled water to spray-filled air is formed.
