PG-GOOS Project

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today with the rise in world population and over the over exploitation of land resources, it is natural that humankind is turning to the seas and oceans in search of resources. For this reason, marine knowledge and a better understanding of such ecosystems and the operation of the constituents as well as their interaction will no doubt aid us in making better and more economical use of these blessings. Researchers have always attended study and analysis of marine issues from the perspective of marine biology, physics, geology, and chemistry.

Regional and local oceanographic data that are collected via vessels, satellites or other means are a good basis for oceanographic information in that these data and information can be used to develop appropriate models for the purpose of understanding and exploiting marine resources.

Iran is situated along 5700 Kilometer of coastlines of the Persian Gulf, the Strait of Hormuz, and the Gulf of Oman in the South as well as the Caspian Sea in the North. Oceanographic and Marine studies, bearing in mind the geographical, political, and economic situation of the I.R. of Iran, depend on collecting information and data.

 As such, the Iranian National Institute for Oceanography (INIO) is performing the “Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman Oceanographic Study” (PG-GOOS) project in an interdisciplinary format.

INIO faculty members and experts uses field equipment to measure physical, biological, ecological, and marine chemical parameters and will subsequently perform modeling of the water circulation in these strategic fields.

This operation is the longest Oceanographic field operation in the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman that commenced on November 5, 2012 and will continue for a year. Measurements will be performed during four seasons using equipment carried on the PG-GOOS research vessel. The results of this project, which will be the most historically magnificent oceanographic survey of the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman, will have a wide range of applications.

 

Main objectives of the PG-GOOS project:

·       Monitoring the southern seas of Iran.

·       Preparing Physical Oceanographic data.

·       Preparing Marine Ecology data.

·       Preparing Marine Biology data.

·       Preparing Chemical Oceanography data.

·       Modeling Water Circulation in the Persian Gulf and Gulf of Oman.

·       Compilation of a comprehensive Oceanographic report of the Persian Gulf, Strait of Hormuz, and Gulf of Oman.

·       Performing a project designed to fit the framework of IO-GOOS.

·       Completing the region Oceanographic data bank.

70 Iranian researchers and faculty members in the fields of physical oceanography, marine chemistry, geology, and biology will participate in the expedition.

Many international research-based observational studies have been already been conducted by the foreign countries in Persian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, but PG-GOOS is the first and longest multipurpose oceanographic observing, which is conducted by one of the regional countries. Given that no such study has been already conducted for 18 months in the region, Iran is the only country in the region that is capable of conducting a study in these dimensions relying on its national experts only.
