Special Feature: The Sea Surface Microlayer - Linking the Ocean and Atmosphere

The sea surface microlayer is the boundary interface between atmosphere and ocean, covering 70% of Earth’s surface. It typically has physical, chemical and biological properties measurably distinct from underlying waters. The unique position of the sea surface microlayer gives it a central role in global biogeochemical cycles and climate-related processes. This special feature of Elementa presents state-of-the-art science on this important interface with contributions across a range of disciplines, including trace metal biogeochemistry, air-sea gas exchange, marine microbiology, organic chemistry and modelling. The research covers a broad range of oceanic ecosystems, from coastal seas to open ocean and from polar regions to tropical waters.
