Much progress in understanding the coupling between the atmosphere and the sea has been made during the past years. Here we discuss the implications of the recent discovery of enhanced (above wall layer predictions) dissipation rates in the upper ocean. In particular, we look at estimates of surface roughness and discuss mechanisms of wave-turbulence interaction.
