  • Air-sea CO2 exchange in the equatorial Pacific 

    McGillis, Wade R.; Edson, James B.; Zappa, Christopher J.; Ware, Jonathan D.; McKenna, Sean P.; Terray, Eugene A.; Hare, Jeffrey E.; Fairall, Christopher W.; Drennan, William M.; Donelan, Mark A.; DeGrandpre, Michael D.; Wanninkhof, Rik; Feely, Richard A. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-08-28)
    GasEx-2001, a 15-day air-sea carbon dioxide (CO2) exchange study conducted in the equatorial Pacific, used a combination of ships, buoys, and drifters equipped with ocean and atmospheric sensors to assess variability and ...
  • Environmental turbulent mixing controls on air-water gas exchange in marine and aquatic systems 

    Zappa, Christopher J.; McGillis, Wade R.; Raymond, Peter A.; Edson, James B.; Hintsa, Eric J.; Zemmelink, Hendrik J.; Dacey, John W. H.; Ho, David T. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-05-17)
    Air-water gas transfer influences CO2 and other climatically important trace gas fluxes on regional and global scales, yet the magnitude of the transfer is not well known. Widely used models of gas exchange rates are based ...
  • Influence of rain on air-sea gas exchange : lessons from a model ocean 

    Ho, David T.; Zappa, Christopher J.; McGillis, Wade R.; Bliven, Larry F.; Ward, Brian; Dacey, John W. H.; Schlosser, Peter; Hendricks, Melissa B. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-07-01)
    Rain has been shown to significantly enhance the rate of air-water gas exchange in fresh water environments, and the mechanism behind this enhancement has been studied in laboratory experiments. In the ocean, the effects ...
  • Rain-induced turbulence and air-sea gas transfer 

    Zappa, Christopher J.; Ho, David T.; McGillis, Wade R.; Banner, Michael L.; Dacey, John W. H.; Bliven, Larry F.; Ma, Barry; Nystuen, Jeffrey A. (American Geophysical Union, 2009-07-09)
    Results from a rain and gas exchange experiment (Bio2 RainX III) at the Biosphere 2 Center demonstrate that turbulence controls the enhancement of the air-sea gas transfer rate (or velocity) k during rainfall, even though ...
  • Scalar flux profile relationships over the open ocean 

    Edson, James B.; Zappa, Christopher J.; Ware, J. A.; McGillis, Wade R.; Hare, Jeffrey E. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-08-14)
    The most commonly used flux-profile relationships are based on Monin-Obukhov (MO) similarity theory. These flux-profile relationships are required in indirect methods such as the bulk aerodynamic, profile, and inertial ...
  • Sea surface temperature signatures of oceanic internal waves in low winds 

    Farrar, J. Thomas; Zappa, Christopher J.; Weller, Robert A.; Jessup, Andrew T. (American Geophysical Union, 2007-06-20)
    In aerial surveys conducted during the Tropical Ocean–Global Atmosphere Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Response Experiment and the low-wind component of the Coupled Boundary Layer Air-Sea Transfer (CBLAST-Low) oceanographic field ...
  • Sea-to-air fluxes from measurements of the atmospheric gradient of dimethylsulfide and comparison with simultaneous relaxed eddy accumulation measurements 

    Hintsa, Eric J.; Dacey, John W. H.; McGillis, Wade R.; Edson, James B.; Zappa, Christopher J.; Zemmelink, Hendrik J. (American Geophysical Union, 2004-01-30)
    We measured vertical profiles of dimethylsulfide (DMS) in the atmospheric marine boundary layer from R/P FLIP during the 2000 FAIRS cruise. Applying Monin-Obukhov similarity theory to the DMS gradients and simultaneous ...
  • Stratus 10 tenth setting of the Stratus Ocean Reference Station : cruise RB-10-01, January 2 - January 30, 2010 Charleston, South Carolina - Valparaiso, Chile 

    Bigorre, Sebastien P.; Weller, Robert A.; Lord, Jeffrey; Galbraith, Nancy R.; Whelan, Sean P.; Zappa, Christopher J.; Otto, William; Ram, Jessica; Vasquez, Raul; Suhm, Diane (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2010-05)
    The Ocean Reference Station at 20°S, 85°W under the stratus clouds west of northern Chile is being maintained to provide ongoing climate-quality records of surface meteorology, air-sea fluxes of heat, freshwater, and ...
  • Stratus 9/VOCALS ninth setting of the Stratus Ocean Reference Station & VOCALS Regional Experiment 

    Whelan, Sean P.; Lord, Jeffrey; Galbraith, Nancy R.; Weller, Robert A.; Farrar, J. Thomas; Grant, David; Grados, Carmen; de Szoeke, Simon P.; Moffat, Carlos F.; Zappa, Christopher J.; Yang, Mingxi; Straneo, Fiamma; Fairall, Christopher W.; Zuidema, Paquita; Wolfe, Dan; Miller, Matthew; Covert, David (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2009-04)
    The Ocean Reference Station at 20°S, 85°W under the stratus clouds west of northern Chile is being maintained to provide ongoing climate-quality records of surface meteorology; air-sea fluxes of heat, freshwater, and ...
  • Variations in ocean surface temperature due to near-surface flow : straining the cool skin layer 

    Wells, Andrew J.; Cenedese, Claudia; Farrar, J. Thomas; Zappa, Christopher J. (American Meteorological Society, 2009-11)
    The aqueous thermal boundary layer near to the ocean surface, or skin layer, has thickness O(1 mm) and plays an important role in controlling the exchange of heat between the atmosphere and the ocean. Theoretical arguments ...
