  • Properties of Red Sea coastal currents 

    Churchill, James H.; Lentz, Steven J.; Farrar, J. Thomas; Abualnaja, Yasser (Elsevier, 2014-02-14)
    Properties of coastal flows of the central Red Sea are examined using 2 years of velocity data acquired off the coast of Saudi Arabia near 22 °N. The tidal flow is found to be very weak. The strongest tidal constituent, ...
  • The response of the Red Sea to a strong wind jet near the Tokar Gap in summer 

    Zhai, Ping; Bower, Amy S. (John Wiley & Sons, 2013-01-31)
    Remote sensing and in situ observations are used to investigate the ocean response to the Tokar Wind Jet in the Red Sea. The wind jet blows down the atmospheric pressure gradient through the Tokar Gap on the Sudanese coast, ...
  • Seasonal overturning circulation in the Red Sea : 1. Model validation and summer circulation 

    Yao, Fengchao; Hoteit, Ibrahim; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Bower, Amy S.; Kohl, Armin; Gopalakrishnan, Ganesh; Rivas, David (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-04-14)
    The overturning circulation in the Red Sea exhibits a distinct seasonally reversing pattern and is studied using high-resolution MIT general circulation model simulations. In the first part of this study, the vertical and ...
  • Seasonal overturning circulation in the Red Sea : 2. Winter circulation 

    Yao, Fengchao; Hoteit, Ibrahim; Pratt, Lawrence J.; Bower, Amy S.; Kohl, Armin; Gopalakrishnan, Ganesh; Rivas, David (John Wiley & Sons, 2014-04-14)
    The shallow winter overturning circulation in the Red Sea is studied using a 50 year high-resolution MITgcm (MIT general circulation model) simulation with realistic atmospheric forcing. The overturning circulation for a ...
  • Zonal surface wind jets across the Red Sea due to mountain gap forcing along both sides of the Red Sea 

    Jiang, Houshuo; Farrar, J. Thomas; Beardsley, Robert C.; Chen, Ru; Chen, Changsheng (American Geophysical Union, 2009-10-10)
    Mesoscale atmospheric modeling over the Red Sea, validated by in-situ meteorological buoy data, identifies two types of coastal mountain gap wind jets that frequently blow across the longitudinal axis of the Red Sea: (1) ...
