Near surface wave turbulence via a shadowgraph technique / by Ioannis K. Tsanis and M.A. Donelan.: En13-5/89-123E-PDF

"The transfer of toxics between air and water is controlled, to a large extent, by the turbulence on either side of the interface. In this experiment, a visual technique is used to explore the effect of the presence of waves on the turbulent intensity in the water. Initial tests indicate turbulence, and hence toxics transfer is enhanced by waves. Continuing work will address this problem quantitatively"--Management Perspective.
