Size spectra of bubbles in the foam patches and of sea salt nuclei over the surf zone

Podzimek, Josef (2011)

The size distribution of bubbles in the foam patches and the size distribution of giant chloridenuclei over the surf zone both follow the Nukiyama-Tanassava size distribution function. Theslope of the size distribution curve for bubbles depends, however, on the residence time of thefoam patch at the ocean surface. The best fit of the sea salt nuclei size distribution curve wasfound for s = 0.333 in the Nukiyama-Tanassava distribution.DOI: 10.1111/j.1600-0889.1984.tb00241.x
