A description of the scientific questions, the engineering approach to answering
those questions and preliminary results from an experiment off
the coast of southern California are presented. The experiment's main focus
was on how local variability, caused primarily by nutrient availability
(and hence surfactant concentration) and wind stress variability, influences
gas exchange in coastal waters. To address this issue, a suite of instruments
was developed to characterize interfacial phenomena in the coastal
region off Monterey Bay, in conjunction with other platforms that intended
to measure both atmospheric and ocean-mixed layer properties.
