Biophysics of the Surface Microlayer of Aquatic Ecosystems introduces the concept of the surface film, or microlayer, of natural water bodies as a specific biophysical environment. The book investigates the hydrophysics, physical chemistry, hydrochemistry and hydrobiology of the surface microlayer in detail. Biophysics of the Surface Microlayer of Aquatic Ecosystems fills the existing gaps in the literature that exist between studies of the surface film by hydrophysicists, hydrochemists and hydrobiologists, by introducing essential physical surface film phenomena to biologists, and biological surface film phenomena to physicists. This book is thus a valuable and unique reference work for oceanologists and limnologists around the world. Contents Introduction: Surface films and microlayers Thermophysics of the surface film of water Aeration through the surface film Films of surfactants at the water surface Hydrochemistry of the surface microlayer of natural water bodies Neustonology Conclusion
