Abstract : This report (the second in a four-volume series) is a climatological study of the Middle East Peninsula, an area that includes the Red Sea Coastal Plains, the Arabian Desert, the Fertile Crescent, and the Persian Gulf Coastal Plains. It was revised in September 1992 to include additional information acquired during the conduct of the August 1990-March 1991 Persian Gulf War. After describing the general geography of land areas in the Middle East Peninsula, the study discusses major meteorological features of the entire study area. Each major subregion (based on climatic commonality ) is then broken into its own geography and general weather sections. Finally, each of the four so- called 'seasons' in each of these subregions is discussed in detail.... Climatology, Meteorology, Weather, Geography, Africa, Middle East, Persian Gulf.
