Hydrographic variables were monitored in northwestern Arabian Gulf over the past three decades and the time-series data were statistically analyzed. The results show that while salinity has undergone… Continue Reading
Evaluation of hydrological data obtained between 2000 and 2013 from a time series station in Kuwait Bay (station K6) and an offshore southern location (station 18) off Kuwait showed drastic increase… Continue Reading
The distribution and abundance patterns of amphipods associated with Sargassum species were studied on a spatial scale along Kuwait’s coastal waters. Macroalgae, in particular Sargassum spp., are… Continue Reading
The Arabian Gulf region is moving towards a nuclear energy option with the first nuclear power plant now operational in Bushehr, Iran, and others soon to be constructed in Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia.… Continue Reading
Brown algae comprise the largest biomass producers in coastal waters and play important ecological roles. The complex nature of cell wall polysaccharides limits the extraction of bioactive compounds… Continue Reading
The Kuwait coast is unique with high water temperature (36 °C), salinity (34–45 ppt), and UV index (8–9). Although 113 species of seaweeds are reported from this coast, not much work has been done to… Continue Reading
Trace metals and macronutrients play key roles in marine biogeochemical processes. Despite their higher availability, no reliable information is available on their ecological role in the hypersaline… Continue Reading
Kuwait coast, which is known for its luxuriant growth of a diverse assemblage of seaweeds on the Arabian Gulf, is found to have abundant quantities of Sargassum species being drifted and washed… Continue Reading
AbstractThe developmental stages of Sargassum along with physicochemical factors affect the Sargassum biomass and, thus, affect the size of the habitat used by various fauna and flora. In this stud...
This study evaluates the potential area and the key environmental factors supporting Sargassum bed restoration (SBR) in the highly turbid northwestern Arabian Gulf where rapid coastal development… Continue Reading
