Spume whipped up by a strong storm at the coast near Whitehaven, Cumbria, UK. Spume, or sea foam, is a frothy mass produced by wave action on seawater that contains relatively high concentrations of organic matter, such as occurs during an algal bloom. The organic matter acts as a surfactant in the same manner as soaps, and in turbulent seas can produce a light froth that can be blown around widely.
