Let $S$ be a compact oriented surface. We construct homogeneous quasimorphisms on ${\rm Diff}(S, \operatorname{area})$, on ${\rm Diff}_0(S, \operatorname{area})$, and on ${\rm Ham}(S)$, generalizing the constructions of Gambaudo-Ghys and Polterovich.

We prove that there are infinitely many linearly independent homogeneous quasimorphisms on ${\rm Diff}(S, \operatorname{area})$, on ${\rm Diff}_0(S, \operatorname{area})$, and on ${\rm Ham}(S)$ whose absolute values bound from below the topological entropy. In cases when $S$ has a positive genus, the quasimorphisms we construct on ${\rm Ham}(S)$ are $C^0$-continuous.

We define a bi-invariant metric on these groups, called the entropy metric, and show that it is unbounded. In particular, we reprove the fact that the autonomous metric on ${\rm Ham}(S)$ is unbounded.
