A systematic program for current observations was planned by the Department of Marine Sciences, University of Qatar to cover the Qatar; waters. The tidal currents were studied by analysing the data obtained from mooring of Aanderaa current-meters in different places in the Doha area, the preliminary results from the first moored experiments in the study area showed that the predominant current directions were: north, south, south-east and north-east respectively. The residual current and the tidal constitunuents were calculated, and the maximum possible current in the area was also obtained.
