Elastic Properties of Natural Sea Surface Films Incorporated with Solid Dust Particles: Model Baltic Sea Studies

Table 3

Elasticity modules of composite surfaces obtained from experimental isotherm measurements (a), and theoretical predictions (from (8)) (b). Original sea water collected at Jelitkowo on 08.12.06; °C, pH = 8.4,  mN m−1. is the ratio / , where is the modulus for clean particle-free seawater surface (c). Standard deviation is given in brackets.
