      The sea spray contains water droplets that are produced due to sea waves that collide with the marine structures as well as the breaking of waves due to the strong winds. Similarly, fog and precipitation at sea level may contribute to the phenomenon of sea spray containing water droplets of minuscule sizes. Wind characteristics (speed and direction) also has a direct influence on the speed of water ...
