Modelling of Oil-Sediment Aggregates Trajectories Along Gulf of Khambhat, West Coast of India
(Springer, Singapore, 2021)
Oil spill accidents on the marine waters impose great threat to the marine organism, humans and economic. Continuous efforts have been made to achieve effective mitigation measures to avoid the damage to the marine ...
Long-term assessment of onshore and offshore wind energy potentials of Qatar
(MDPI (Basel, Switzerland), 2021)
Exploitation of conventional energy resources has caused a deliberate increase in the emitted carbon in the atmosphere, which catalyzes global warming trends. This is a matter of concern, especially in Qatar, where fossil ...
Formation and weathering assessment of oil-suspended sediment aggregates through a laboratory investigation
Formation of oil-suspended sediment aggregates (OSAs) is believed to be one of the natural cleaning processes in the marine environment. In this study, we have investigated the formation processes of OSAs under different ...
Molluscan Diversity Influenced by Mangrove Habitat in the Khors of Qatar
The Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of Qatar is a rapidly developing region within the Arabian Gulf, where monitoring of changes in benthic biodiversity and its functioning is needed. The influence of mangroves and seasonality ...
Role of shamal and easterly winds on the wave characteristics off Qatar, central Arabian Gulf
Waves in the Arabian Gulf (Gulf) are dominated by shamal winds during winter and early summer. Although wave characteristics in the Gulf are broadly studied, features associated with various wind systems are not explicitly ...
The maxima in northerly wind speeds and wave heights over the Arabian Sea, the Arabian/Persian Gulf and the Red Sea derived from 40�years of ERA5 data
Recent studies point out the importance of northerly winds and waves in the Arabian Sea, especially those due to shamal and makran events in addition to the northeast monsoon system. We have analyzed climatology and trends ...
