Abstract:

The development of a three-dimensional, high resolution nowcastforecast system for the Arabian Gulf and Gulf of Oman which encompasses scales of 10 km or less when warranted, using the most advanced finite element FE coastal hydrodynamic models. The modeled dynamics are to include tidal and wind-driven flow, buoyancy forcing, surface heat flux, river inflow, and turbulent mixing processes.
