Sea and Bora-wind interactions

A Severe wind-Bora storm over the eastern coasts of the Adriatic Sea produced large sea watre spray due to violent wind gusts. Here we are just few hundreds meters from the coast of Trieste (Italy) on January 17th, 2017. Average wind velocity is around 25 m/s (90 km/h) and gusts up to 145 km/h. The sun raising produces spectacular sea-water rainbows when strongest gusts push sea spray tens of meters high on the sea surface.
