Upper Ocean Thermal Responses to Sea Spray Mediated Turbulent Fluxes during Typhoon Passage

Figure 2

The change of drag coefficient with the 10 m wind speed on the different wave ages (8, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 80, and 100). The black dot lines represent the drag coefficient affected by the sea spray, which are calculated by (13). The drag coefficient without the effect of sea spray is indicated by the green line and calculated by the Charnock relation (9). The observations of Jarosz et al. (2007) based on different resistance coefficients (0.1, 0.0505, 0.02, and 0.001 cm/s) are plotted by the red dots. The blue dots represent the drag coefficient observed by Powell et al. (2003).
