Seasonal Variations of Seawater Properties in the Southwestern Coastal Waters of the Caspian Sea
Volume 3, Issue 3 , July 2013, , Pages 113-124

  Seasonal variations of the seawater properties (e.g. temperature, salinity, density and chlorophyll-a) in western part of the southern coastal waters of the Caspian Sea near the Iranian coast were studied. A portable CTD probe was applied for profiling from sea surface to bottom at 23 stations. Maximum ...  Read More

The layered structure in exchange flows between two basins (Middle and Southern basins of the Caspian Sea)

A. A. Bidokhti; A. Shekarbaghani

Volume 1, Issue 1 , December 2011, , Pages 13-22

  Ocean waters often show layered structures especially where exchange flow between two basins occurs. These structures are often attributed to processes such as double.diffusive convection, internal waves, turbulent modulated mixing. In this paper by examining the vertical structures of temperature, salinity ...  Read More
