Frontiers in ocean-atmosphere exchange : Air sea interface and fluxes of mass and energy

15-18 May 2017 Cargèse, Corsica, France

Ocean-atmosphere fluxes of momentum, heat, freshwater, gases and aerosols play a critical role in the regulation of climate. The problem of adequately describing air-sea fluxes is complex, and simplistic parameterizations are not sufficient to represent the fluxes in models. Uncertainties in air-sea exchanges constrain our ability to understand and model our changing climate. It is therefore necessary to come to a mechanistic understanding of the processes affecting exchange of mass and energy across the air-sea interface from nano-to-global scales.

This workshop will address the issues surrounding air-sea fluxes of mass and energy.

Topics covered will be :

- Developments in air-sea flux observations.

- Translating upper ocean turbulence observations into parameterisations and models.

- The role of waves in modifying air-sea fluxes.

- The sea surface microlayer and its effect on air-sea exchange processes

A detailed programme will be developed based on the abstracts we receive.

This workshop falls within the scope of the SOLAS-Science Core Theme 2. Further support is given by ESA and WCRP.
