The sea surface and global change - Cambridge University Press 1997 - xv,519p

The sea-surface microlayer has often been operationally defined as roughly the top 1000 micrometres of the ocean surface. Considerable research over the past ten years has led to increased understanding of this vitally important interface between the ocean and the atmosphere, and how it may interact with global change processes. This book offers the first comprehensive review of the physics, chemistry and biology of the surface microlayer in a decade. In addition to a review of these fundamental features, the authors address the potential global marine impacts at the air-sea interface of such phenomena as large-scale atmospheric ozone depletion, climate change and industrial pollution.
