MetadataShow full item record
Hydrology and Hydro-biological monitoring in the Northeast Persian Gulf and strait of Hormuz (Hormozgan Province waters) were conducted during 2003-2004.The project was implemented using R/V Ferdous.The sampling area included the stretch of the Iranian waters along the northeast part of the Persian Gulf and Strait of Hormuz in Hormuzgan province. Along this stretch 7 equally distributed transect at a distance of 40 miles from one another were designated ; 3 main sampling stations at a distance of 20 miles from one another were fixed at each transect. Sampling was conducted twice per annun from Feb . 2003 to Feb. 2004. Summer & winter values of some Physico-chemical factors in surface layers of Hormozgan waters were recorded as follows: Temprature 33±0.082 , 21.8±0.67 ?c ; EC 66.1±1.52 , 53.3±0.66ms/cm ; Salinity 37.9±0.54, 37.8±1.6 ppt , Density 22.9±0.39 , 25.5±0.99 kg/m3, Dissolved oxygen 5.4±0.26 , 6.7±0.35 ppm ; pH 8.2±0.02 , 8±0.03 ; chlorophyll-a 0.7±0.4 , 1.3±0.72 mg/m3 and Turb.....
