Short summary
Based on the Gaussian quadrature method, a fast algorithm of sea-spray-mediated heat flux is developed. Compared with the widely used single-radius algorithm, the new fast algorithm shows a better agreement with the full spectrum integral of spray flux. The new fast algorithm is evaluated in a coupled modeling system, and the simulations of sea surface temperature, wind speed and wave height are improved. Thereby, the new fast algorithm has great potential to be used in coupled modeling systems.
