Summary:
This study proposed to determine an ocean surface bubble radius distribution using theoretical noise models, experimental noise spectral data and a theoretical model for the bubble size distribution. The obtained distribution was compared to previous experimental distributions. A good agreement was found for the radius upper cut-off but the shape and the peak radius of the distribution are different from experimental observations. The most probable reasons for these differences were given. Moreover, the validity of recent theoretical bubble noise models was checked. Eventually, the main limitations of the study were pointed out and directions for future works were given.
