Air-sea Interactions

The Atmosphere and the Ocean form a coupled system, exchanging heat, momentum and water at the air-sea interface. We explain this by saying the example as energy from the wind energy blowing over the surface of the ocean produces waves and currents.  Similarly, the ocean surface absorbs most of the heat from the sun and the surface currents move this warm water around the world and warm the atmosphere from below.  In addition, greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide (CO2) are transferred between atmosphere and ocean, with the ocean absorbing CO2 on average. On the long term, the convergence/divergence of oceanic heat transport provides source/sinks of heat for the atmosphere and partly shapes the mean climate of the Earth. So we need to understand the Interactions between ocean waves and environment and Upper ocean Salinity Variability and its Impact on Climate

At the ocean-atmosphere interface, the ocean and atmosphere exchange fluxes of heat, moisture and momentum. The oceans' large heat capacity moderates the climate of areas adjacent to the oceans, leading to a maritime climate at such locations. This can be a result of heat storage in summer and release in winter; or of transport of heat from warmer locations: a particularly notable example of this is Western Europe, which is heated at least in part by the north Atlantic drift.
