Previous parameterizations of gas transfer velocity have attempted to cast this quantity as a function of wind speed or wind-stress. This study demonstrates that the presence of a surface film is eective at reducing the gas transfer velocity at constant wind-stress. Gas exchange experiments were performed at WHOI and UH using annular wind-wave tanks of dierent scales. Systematic variations of wind-stress and surfactant concentration (Triton-X-100) were explored to determine their influence on… CONTINUE READING
