In this current study, it is used an Estuary Lake and Coastal Ocean Model of Centre for water research of University of Western Australia, here after ELCOM, to employ a 3D hydrostatic non-uniform simulation of measured data of in late wintertime, 2005 in Oman sea area. The data was achieved by Global Temperature and Salinity Profile Programme, GTSPP. In order to that, simulation covers the whole basin of Persian Gulf, Oman Sea and north of Arabian Sea, to make the simulated profiles independent of Persian Gulf outflows and Indian Ocean Inflows. The simulation was run by temperature and salinity differences of Persian Gulf and Oman Sea, river discharges at the end of Persian Gulf, meteorological data of Qeshm Island for 4 months. Temperature results are in good agreements with measured data, while although salinity trend results are acceptable, the simulation is not capable to generate the low salinity water intrusion between 100 to 400 m......
