Development of a sea salt emission parameterization for the North-western Mediterranean

Abstract : The aim of the present work is to determinate an accurate formulation for the sea-spray source function issued from the bubble bursting processes. To this end, a simple aerosol transport Model, the Macmod Model (Tedeschi and Piazzola, 2011) was implemented in the Mediterranean area using different flux formulations for the sea spray source function (e.g., Demoisson et al., 2013; Gong et al., 2003; Monahan et al., 1986; Odvanevaite et al., 2014). The simulations were then compared to a large data set dealing with the aerosol size distributions acquired during an extensive series of measurements in the Northwestern Mediterranean. The results, which are part of an article that will be submitted soon, allowed determination of an accurate sea-spray source function formulation and its dependence on the wave development.
