Abstract : The objectives of the grant were to locate, convert and archive historical data from the Red Sea, and to make those data available on line to researchers interested in that region, and secondly, to begin comparison of those historical data with NAVOCEANO's real time circulation model of the Red Sea. The data are archived in a standard, flat ASCII, self documenting form and can be found at the internet web site: gopher://gopher-ccs.ucsd.edu:70/11 /zoo/redsea. This can also be reached via the Scripps Center for Coastal Studies Home Page: http://www-ccs.ucsd.edu, and accessing the Data Zoo, and then redsea on that page. A print out of the Red Sea data archive main directory page is attached as Appendix A to this report. Comparisons between the NAVOCEANO Red Sea model output and observations from the archive are described in a report previously submitted to the program managers for this project, and is also attached as Appendix B to this report.
