A Sea State – Dependent Spume Generation Function

  title={A Sea State – Dependent Spume Generation Function},
  author={James and A.. and A Mueller},
The uncertainty of the sea spray generation function continues to obscure spray-mediated momentum and scalar fluxes, especially for intense wind conditions. Most previous studies assume a constant form (spectral shape) for the droplet distribution, even though a shift to smaller drops with increased wind forcing is expected. In this paper, a new generation function for spume drops is derived, but unlike previous studies, both its form and magnitude change with wind forcing. Fairly good… CONTINUE READING
