    The available data describing the chemical and biological nature of the air-sea interface are still very limited. Useful comparisons are hindered by diverse sampling techniques. There are, nevertheless, recognizable trends in reported results. The occurrence of elevated trace metal concentrations in the surface microlayer is widely reported to occur and appears to correlate well with the presence of observable condensed organic slicks. Particulate and organic forms of metals show the highest degrees of enrichment at the air-sea interface
