Parameterizing bubble-mediated air-sea gas exchange and its effect on ocean ventilation

  title={Parameterizing bubble-mediated air-sea gas exchange and its effect on ocean ventilation},
  author={Jun-hong Liang and Curtis Deutsch and James C. McWilliams and Burkard Baschek and Peter P. Sullivan and David Chiba},
[1] Bubbles play an important role in the exchange of gases between the atmosphere and ocean, altering both the rate of exchange and the equilibrium gas saturation state. We develop a parameterization of bubble-mediated gas fluxes for use in Earth system models. The parameterization is derived from a mechanistic model of the oceanic boundary layer that simulates turbulent flows and the size spectrum of bubbles across a range of wind speeds and is compared against other published formulations… CONTINUE READING
