The present study attempts to combine the general outcome of such experiments at both interfaces into a universal scaling relation for the thicknesses of the viscous and diffusive sublayers in terms of the Kolmogorov and Batchelor length scales, respectively. Transfer velocities can then be described in terms of the Schmidt number of the respective tracer and in terms of the turbulence dissipation rate. Applying law-of-the-wall scaling to convert dissipation rates into an appropriate friction velocity estimate results in a mechanistic description of the transfer velocity, which is comparable to common empirical parameterizations. It is hypothesized, however, that the dissipation rate and hence the directly estimated level of turbulence provide a more appropriate variable for the parameterization of interfacial fluxes than wind speed or turbulent friction velocity inferred from law-of-the-wall scaling.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Lorke, Andreas</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Lorke, Andreas</dc:contributor> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Journal of Physical Oceanography 36 (2006), pp. 955-961</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Peeters, Frank</dc:contributor> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 2.0 Generic</dc:rights> <dcterms:issued>2006</dcterms:issued> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:33:31Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Toward a Unified Scaling Relation for Interfacial Fluxes</dcterms:title> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-24T17:33:31Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Peeters, Frank</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
