Abstract Air bubbles breaking at the air-water interface can remove bacteria that concentrate in the surface microlayer and eject the bacteria into the atmosphere. The bacterial concentrations (numbers per milliliter) in the drops ejected from the bubbles may, depending on drop size, be from 10 to 1000 times that of the water in which the bubbles burst.
