Air-sea interaction / by Mark A. Donelan. : En13-5/89-96E-PDF

"This paper explores advances in air-sea interaction in thelast two decades, especially aspects related to the exchange of momentum, energy and mass. The modern view of the mechanical coupling between air and sea stems from the pioneering work of Kitaigorodskii, who advanced the idea that the roughness of the sea surface should be related not only to the wind but also to the state of wave development. The failure of various field observations to clarify the matter is ascribed to measurement and sampling errors and the tendency for individual experiments to be confined to a rather narrow range of wave development. A carefully chosen fetch-limited data set is used to revisit the problem and it is shown that the aerodynamic roughness of a wind excited water surface depends on the state of wave development"--Abstract.
