On the Mechanisms of Episodic Salinity Outflow Events in the Strait of Hormuz


Observations in the Strait of Hormuz (26.26°N. 56.08°E) during 1997-98 showed substantial velocity fluctuations, accompanied by episodic changes in the salinity outflow events with amplitude varying between 1 and 2 psu on time scales of several days to a few weeks. These events arc characterized by a rapid increase in salinity followed by an abrupt decline… (More)
