Abstract : The hydrological conditions with regard to the heat and water budget of the Red Sea are analysed on the basis of data gathered during the 'Voyeykov' expedition in the Red Sea, Bab el Mandeb Strait, and the Gulf of Aden. The employment of 18 deepwater stations in the trench of the sea, the strait, and the gulf lead to findings about temperature, salinity, and oxygen variations with depth. On the basis of these data the existing surface, intermediate and deep layers were established, and the horizontal and vertical water movements were traced.
