Вероятностные характеристики упругости пленок поверхностно-активных веществ в сликах на морской поверхности
The surface-active substances everywhere are presented on the water surface, they are exposed to waves and currents, and are involved in the processes of ocean-atmosphere exchange. They play a prominent role in the formation of small-scale part of the spectrum of wind waves and affect the manifestations of internal waves on the sea surface. In this paper, on the basis of experimental data, measurements of the surface-active agents "in situ", calculated the probability distributions of elastic films of surface-active substances in the slicks (smoothed areas of the sea surface) for the two oceanic regions (the Pacific Ocean near the island of San Diego (California ) and the central part of the Atlantic Ocean between the equator and the 35th parallel of northern latitude and 1° - 65° W). Obtained almost the same distribution function of elasticity of the films of surface-active substances (in normalized variables), which indicates the existence of a universal "climatic" of the distribution function of elasticity of the films of surfactants. The results can be used to assess the visibility of slicks on the sea surface by remote radio-physical methods.
