Estimates of the Surface Fluxes Over the Ocean
Development of techniques for the measurement and estimation of the vertical fluxes of momentum, heat and moisture over the ocean has been the subject of a number of experiments in the last 10 to 15 years. Interest in these studies was motivated by the importance of the fluxes in wave generation, ocean circulation, large scale atmosphere-ocean interactions and effects of turbulence on propagation of electromagnetic and optical radiation through the atmosphere.
