Abstract:   (1638 Views)
Observations from an eight-year ocean station at Chabahar showed that both salinity and electrical conductivity (EC) have increased over the past nine years. Meanwhile, pH remained at steady state levels and there was no significant trend in mean annual temperatures. The best repeating pattern of monthly oscillations was depicted in temperature data with the highest and the lowest temperatures occurring at 4th/ 5th and 10th/ 11th months, respectively. Changes in salinity/EC and temperature were moderately correlated. The mean monthly pH levels rarely fell below 8.00. There were no signs of hypoxia during the study period.
