  • Article

The influence of surface pollutions on the processes of convective m1x1ng in the upper water layer is studied for different weather conditions. The authors' mathematical model of Langmuir circulations (LC) is employed. It is shown that pollutions reduce the intensity of LC motions and may even suppress them, especially at high wind velocities. They also increase both the surface current velocities and the velocity difference between the convergence and divergence areas in the LCs.
