Probing water's skin

11-Mar-2019

From the wind-whipped surface of the open ocean, to trillions of tiny water drops in clouds, the air-water interface--water's skin-- is the site for crucial natural processes, including ocean-atmosphere exchange and cloud acidification. The air-water interface has even been postulated as the ...
