Knowing the Persian Gulf wind features regarding which application in current, waves, storm tide and also field measurement information analysis is of great importance. Wind is a dynamic phenomenon which has been studied in order to compute the storm tide in Persian Gulf. In order to examine and analyze the wind information of an area, identifying the area atmospheric system and local and major wind formation in the considered area is needed. After identifying the area winds we can analyze these winds using the available information and study the quantitative values of each of the winds.
In order to access each of the area’s winds characteristics, there are a lot of information references which can be generally divided into three categories:
The first category of the references is the measured wind characteristic’s in synoptic stations. The second category includes the results of available mathematical models for predicating the wind characteristics in the area. The third category consists of some scattered measurements which have been implemented in special time for a special project in the considered area or around it. Using each of the information references or combination of them, we can obtain a good identification of the wind condition.
In this study the model of ECMWF has been examined and evaluated. To do this approach, the model’s results in the station’s locations in versions of original and modified have been extracted, and by using them, the general and monthly wind-roses were drawn and compared with general and monthly synoptic wind-roses which are simultaneous to the model’s period. Also frequency curves of the two mentioned versions have been compared and analyzed.
