About this book Introduction Ocean and atmosphere are now treated as coupled parts of one system; the resulting interest in air-sea interaction problems has led to a rapid growth in the sophistication of instruments and measurement techniques.
Air-Sea Interaction: Laws and Mechanisms is a comprehensive account of how the atmosphere and the ocean interact to control the global climate, what physical laws govern this interaction, and its prominent mechanisms. The topics covered range from evaporation in the oceans, to hurricanes, and on to poleward heat transport by the oceans. recent years, air-sea interaction has emerged as a subject in its own right, encompassing small- and large-scale processes in both air and sea. A novel feature of the book is the treatment of empirical laws of momentum, heat, and mass transfer, across the air-sea interface as well as across thermoclines. The “Ocean Circulation and Air-Sea Interaction” group focuses on research related to ocean circulation and its linkages to the climate and the water cycle. The group provides broad support to NASA for ocean-related satellite missions as well as the development of future mission concepts. The over-arching science questions the group addresses are: How is the ocean . Air—sea interaction associated with tropical intraseasonal variability (ISV) and, particularly, the Madden—Julian Oscillation (MJO) is of interest for three reasons. First, variations of the air—sea fluxes of heat and moisture may be fundamental to mechanisms of tropical by:
