Interactions between ocean and atmosphere play an important role in climate control, heat flux, CO2 up-take, as well as the exchange of trace gases and the particulate matter. The surface film present at the air-sea interface has emerged as the primary cross-over point between the bulk water (liquid phase) and the atmosphere (gas phase)1.
Nowadays the microlayer is considered not only as a layer present on oceanic and coastal waters, it also represents a gradient-region with own physical, biological and chemical properties1. Notwithstanding current information that has emerged over the last few decades, the microlayer’s role as a modulator of the exchange of matter and energy, is still not well understood. In 1995, a group of experts IMO/FAO/UNESCOIOC/WMO/WHO/IAEA/UN/UNEP: Joint Group of Experts on the Scientific Aspects of Marine Environmental Protection – GESAMP, report N. 59), illustrated the state of art of aspects about surface film and microlayer arguments1. Characterisation of surface film (or microlayer when assumed to be a portion of the sampled surface film) emerged as an important tool for the evaluation of transport processes between the different
phases. According to this group of experts, the surface film has an important role in economic affairs (e.g. fisheries), as well as global scale climatic changes.
