The paper considers the effects of sea roughness and atmospheric stability on the sea surface wind stress over waves, which are in local equilibrium with the wind, by using the logarithmic boundary layer profile including a stability function, as well as adopting some commonly used sea surface roughness formulations. The engineering relevance of the results is also discussed.
