Due to the importance of this red tide phenomenon and its effect on the habitats of marine life, the study of this phenomenon in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman is necessary. This research is written only with a physical view and the study of other aspects is the responsibility of experts in the relevant fields. There are various methods to study this phenomenon, including field studies, satellite studies and numerical modeling. In this research, one-dimensional PROBE software has been used for different stations in the Oman Sea, the Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf. The input data of the model include meteorological synoptic data: air temperature, u and v components of wind speed, cloudiness and relative humidity of Qeshm station in February 2008.
Studies show that the modeling results of temperature, salinity, phosphate and nitrate are almost consistent with the measurement data. In stations located in the Persian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, in places where the amount of temperature, salinity and nutrients is maximum, the concentration of plankton, which depends on these parameters, also reaches its maximum. As predicted, the amount of green-blue plankton concentration is higher than (only) nitrate and phosphate dependent plankton concentration.
