Abstract

This paper describes the new Extreme Air-Sea Interaction (EASI) buoy designed to measure direct air-sea fluxes, as well as mean properties of the lower atmosphere, upper ocean, and surface waves in high wind and wave conditions. The design of the buoy and its associated deep-watermooring are discussed. The performance of EASI during its 2010 deployment off Taiwan, where three typhoons were encountered, is summarized.
