Abstract:

Temperature-salinity-depth profile data were obtained for the Persian Gulf, Southern Red Sea and parts of the Arabian Sea from the Master Oceanographic Observations Data Set MOODS, located at the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Office NAVOCEANO, Stennis Space Center, Mississippi. These data were used as part of a physical oceanographic study of the Red Sea and Persian Gulf outflows. This report documents the organization of the data set, method of quality control used to eliminate unrealistic data, and provides a summary in graphic form of the hydrographic observations.
