Water circulation modeling study upon the construction of al-Dannat development at the Halfmoon Bay, Saudi Arabian Gulf

The present study aims to understand the flow field near the coast of Halfmoon Bay located in the Arabian Gulf arising due to creation of an artificial island by al-Dannat. The study was performed using the state-of-art hydrodynamic model, Princeton ocean model (POM), applied for a detailed analysis of flow conditions, temperature and salinity distributions after the creation of this artificial island. These...

Temporal and spatial variations of heavy metals (Cu, Pb and Ni) concentration in the sediment from intertidal zone along the Iranian coasts of the Oman Sea

In order to determine distribution and seasonal patterns of heavy metals concentration in the intertidal sediment of the north Oman sea, samples of sediment were collected from five different station in August 2007 and February 2008. The samples were oven dried and acid digested. Heavy metals content of acid digested samples were analyzed by atomic absorption spectrophotometery method. Results showed that mean Cu, Pb...
