Heat Budget of the Southeastern Part of the Arabian Gulf
MetadataShow full item record
The surface heat fluxes through the air-sea interface for the coastal water of the southeastern part of the Arabian Gulf have been estimated using the bulk formulas. The annual mean values of the sensible, latent and back radiation fluxes are 4, 153 and 57 W m respectively. The annual mean of recorded solar radiation is 200 w m , thus, giving an annual heat flux deficit of7W m . This heat deficit must be compensated by that advected by the currents.
