Abstract

“Classical” and “sampling” methods of air-sea exchange estimates are considered. On the basis of meteorological observations at ocean weather stations in the North Atlantic, datasets of midlatitudinal experiments, and voluntary ship measurements calculations of sensible, latent, and momentum fluxes were obtained. The behavior of fluxes with increasing spatial- and temporal-averaging scales is explained. Simple parameterizations, using the space-time averaging influence on air-sea flux estimates, are produced. Some particulars connected with the role of different correlation terms are discussed.
