where u8 is the wind velocity (meters per second) at 8 m above the water surface. The diffusivities are calculated using the following equations:

where M is the molecular weight (grams per mole), Ta and Taq are the air and water temperatures (kelvin), and v is the molecular diffusion volume (cubic centimeters per mole).
