Welcome to the Red Sea Modeling and Prediction Group

Our research is focusing on developing integrated data-driven modeling systems to study and predict the circulation and the climate of the Saudi marginal seas: the Red Sea and the Arabian Gulf, and to understand the impact of these on the ecosystems health and productivity. It involves effective use and integration of general circulation models with in-situ and satellite observations, including the development and implementation of data inversion, assimilation, and uncertainty quantification techniques suitable for large scale applications.
