We will investigate a number of factors on air-sea transfer of momentum, heat, and moisture under weak wind conditions. We will focus on important impacts of swell amplitude and propagation direction and influences of large atmospheric eddies on turbulence transfer. Improved understanding of the various influences on surface fluxes under weak wind conditions will be used to modify the existing bulk aerodynamic formula.
