Understanding & Predicting the Ocean Surface Boundary Layer
Exchanges of heat, water, carbon and nutrients between deep ocean and the atmosphere are controlled through the ocean surface boundary layer, and recent evidence links theses processes to weather and climate variations on timescales from a few days to centuries.
Some fundamental physical processes determining ocean boundary layer dynamics and mixing are poorly understood. We need to develop a better understanding of ocean surface boundary layer processes in a wide range of circumstances, in order to allow weather and climate predictions to be improved.
