The sea-surface microlayer has often been defined as the top 1 to 1000 micrometers of the ocean surface. A considerable amount of new research over the past ten years has led to increased understanding of this vitally important interface between the ocean and the atmosphere, and how it may interact with global change processes. This book offers the first comprehensive review of the surface microlayer in a decade. The authors address the potential global marine impacts at the air-sea interface due to large-scale atmospheric ozone depletion and industrial pollution. Environmental scientists and oceanographers at a graduate or research level who are interested in global change will welcome this authoritative reference work.
