The Air-Sea Interaction Laboratory (ASI Lab) is led by professor Fabrice Veron. The ASI Lab is affiliated with the Physical Ocean Science and Engineering (POSE) program in the School of Marine Science and Policy at the University of Delaware. Research at the ASI Lab focuses on surface waves and wave processes including:


  • Wave breaking,
  • Airflow and turbulence over wind waves,
  • Generation of sea-spray by breaking waves,
  • Turbulence on both sides of the interface,
  • Rain impact on the ocean surface, and
  • Air-sea gas fluxes.



The ASI Lab pioneers field and laboratory experiments, along with some theoretical and numerical work. The Lab experiments are performed in the large wind-wave-current flume of the ASI Lab. For more information, please contact Dr. Fabrice Veron.

At the Air-Sea Interaction Laboratory, we commit to creating and upholding an inclusive, safe, open, and professional environment for learning, conducting, and communicating research. We thrive to act with integrity, respect, fairness, trustworthiness, and transparency and reject any form of discrimination, harassment, bullying, and dishonesty.
