10% of profits donated to the Alfred C. Glassell Jr. SUSTAIN Laboratory at UM

The interface where air and water meet is a magical place, the physical crossroad where terrestrial and aquatic life on Earth interact. But not only is it our gateway to the submersed, the water's surface is also where heat is transferred to and from the atmosphere. Imagine this energy flowing through you the next time you float suspended between these two worlds.

    1. UPF 50+ sun protection (highest rating achievable)
    2. Fibers mechanically engineered for quick-dry, moisture-wicking and breathability
    3. Resilient 4-way stretch and recovery for shape retention in and out of the water
    4. 100% chlorine, sun, salt water, and sunscreen resistant
    5. High neck collar, thumbholes at wrists, and medium back booty coverage
    6. Back zipper for easy entry, with a long paracord pull for easy zip up
    7. Raglan cut sleeves for great range of shoulder movement
    8. No shelf bra or padding. For more support, we suggest wearing a bikini top underneath
    9. Tag-less for comfort

ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY THE reflection of light off the surface of the sea

SUSTAIN laboratory logo

It's well known that over 70% of Earth's surface is covered with water, but did you realize this impacts the flow of heat and energy around the world? Water has a specific heat value, a material property that describes how much energy is required to heat it, that is approximately four times greater than air. This means that air will heat and cool much faster than water. Because of this, the air and sea are often interacting at different temperatures and exchanging energy.

The study of air-sea interaction is critical to understanding the life cycle of a tropical cyclone. As a storm develops it can strengthen or weaken depending on the available energy it can extract from the ocean's surface. The processes that drive this energy exchange are extremely complex and are the topic of ongoing scientific research. At the Alfred C. Glassell Jr. SUSTAIN Laboratory at the Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science, scientists utilize a state of the art wind/wave tank to better understand these intricacies. 10% of your purchase will be donated to support the graduate students that work in this lab. Specifically, the funds will be used for creative projects that enable the students to communicate their work to the broader public such as through film, photography and art.
