Description: 

Air-sea gas transfer velocity in m/day, calculated using a relationship between wind speed and gas transfer from Nightingale et al. (2000) and the NOAA/NCDC Blended Sea Winds satellite wind speed product (Zhang et al. 2006), and using the Reuer et al. (2007) time-dependent weighting scheme and the MLD values given here.
