CIS Phase I

Interactive Coastal Information System for Kuwait’s Territorial Waters

 

Phase I: Hindcasting  of Wave, Water Levels and Tidal Currents.

 

      The Digital oceanographic Atlas provides a valuable source of data. This Interface model  linked with oceanographic and met ocean data bank will provide a new comprehensive hydrodynamic atlas for Kuwait's waters that can be a valuable source of information for the met ocean and oceanographic atlas of Kuwait and the Arabian Gulf. Time series of wind, wave, water levels and tidal currents are provided for last 10 years (1993 to 2002). The data generated will be stored in a digital Coastal Information System ( C.I.S.) that will provide a useful tool for the storing and extraction data (time series, summary tables, roses). The model interface system divide into several options as: -

 

1-Digital Met Gulf Data for (Arabian Gulf). (Extracting Wind data records).The model covered  

    the entire Arabian Gulf from (longitude 47.4, Latitude 23.8 deg) till (longitude 56.8, Latitude 30.5

   deg.) with grid spacing of (0.1 deg). Data record covered From 1993 to 2002.

2-Digital Oceanographic Gulf Data for (Arabian Gulf). (Extracting Wave data records). Sulisz    

   and Al-Salem K. et al. (2000) used a third-generation wind driven wave model WAM (WAMDI

   Group, 1988) to model the wind waves in the Arabian Gulf with emphasis on Kuwait’s territorial

   waters.   The model covered the entire Arabian Gulf from (longitude 47.4, Latitude 23.8 deg) till (

   (longitude 56.8, Latitude 30.5 deg.) with grid spacing of (0.1 deg). Data record covered from  

   1993 to 2002.

3-Digital hydrodynamic Gulf Data for (Arabian Gulf). (Extracting Tidal Current and Water

   levels data records). The RMA model is a finite element model uses an unstructured grid. This will

   allow for generating a coarser grid for the Gulf and a finer grid in the Kuwaiti territorial waters. The

   model covered the entire Arabian Gulf and data record from 1993 to 2002 for tidal current and

   water level.

4- Rose Plotting Tool. It’s a valuable tool for user to create a rose plot and the statistical of

   frequency table for wave height, wind speed and tidal current for any location and time period in the

   Arabian Gulf.

5-Long Term Prediction Design (Wave Height or Wind Speed) Tool. It a valuable tool to study

   the probability of long term distribution using several type of probability as:

6- To Study Wind Energy Tool. It a valuable tool to study and calculate the wind Energy at any

   select location in Kuwait and al Arabian Gulf.
