Short summary
We measured the transfer of 12 gases between air and sea at very high wind speeds in two different wind-wave tank labs with fresh water, simulated seawater and seawater. We separated the transfer across the water surface from the transfer through the surface of bubbles. At high winds, the transfer through the free water surface increases very strongly and bubbles become important but only for gases which are very weakly soluble in water. On the ocean, bubbles might be important at lower winds.
