The air-sea interaction is directly related to several climate impacts such as global warming. The data and statistic shown for the past decades have shown the increase of temperature at the sea surface proven the occurrence of global warming. Several researches have been carried out to study the air-sea interaction. Most of the studies focus on the factors affecting the air-sea interaction and determine the air-sea flux in a specific area during specific season. Hence, these studies are significant as the first important steps toward climate change. The aim of this study is to model the air-sea interaction at Melaka refinery plants located at coastal area using indirect approach, bulk formula, and Fick’s law of diffusion. The factor focused on this research will be on wind velocity. The value of carbon dioxide concentration will first be determined by referring to the Petronas Technical Standard which started from the construction of the plant till the current state which is operation. The concentration of carbon dioxide is assumed to be homogeneous. The value of solubility is acquired from solubility of Weiss (1974). Coefficient of wind velocity, k is determined using Schmidt number under Wanninkhof (1992). The determination of air-sea flux will be done using Microsoft Excel. The results would be the air-sea flux against the concentration in which the air-sea flux will increase in accordance of the increase of carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere.
