Capillary driven fragmentation of large gas bubbles in turbulence

Abstract:

The bubble size distribution below a breaking wave is of paramount interest when quantifying mass exchanges between the atmosphere and oceans. Mass fluxes at the interface are driven by bubbles that are small compared with the Hinze scale dh, the critical size below which bubbles are stable, even though individually these are negligible in volume. Combining experimental and numerical approaches, we report a power-law scaling
