Abstract:   (1060 Views)
In this study, measured hydrophysical data collected by the University of Miami researchers from the southern part of the Strait of Hormuz during the period December 1996 to March 1998 and climate data from the Qeshm island meteorological station were used to simulate water column turbulence south of the Qeshm Island, via General Ocean Turbulence Model (GOTM). The model does not use slip and fluxes as a bottom boundary condition. Therefore, the model's vertical domain was chosen so that the bottom does not influence the upper boundary layer simulation. The vertical domain considered for simulation is from z = 0 m, at the surface, to z = -110 m, in an equally spaced Cartesian grid of 1 meter. The time laps were three hours. The simulation results showed different seasonal turbulent kinetic energy (TKE) and thus, different penetration depths. In the cold season, TKE extends from the surface to bottom, but is restricted to the upper depths of thermocline layer. In addition, results show that the TKE is similar to the buoyancy frequency (N).
