This introductory video explains measurements the team on research vessel Falkor are collecting to study the sea surface microlayer – the 1mm layer connecting the air and sea. Measurements are taken from multiple locations on the ship: in the water with CTD casts, from stationary and apex buoys, a radiometer, aerial robots, and a catamaran at the surface. Each device – like an individual instrument in an orchestra – contributes uniquely; they come together creating a complete symphony of data.
