Ocean Modelling and remote sensing the Red Sea circulation and ecosystem


Project Description

Study Red Sea circulation and ecosystem using high resolution ocean models simulation, (e.g. MIT ocean general circulation model - MITgcm and European Regional Seas Ecosystem Models - ERSEM), and state-of-the-art remote sensing techniques with available in-situ observations.
Program - Earth Science and Engineering

Ibrahim Hoteit

My research involves the effective use and integration of dynamical models and observations to simulate, study and predict realistic geophysical fluid systems. This involves developing and implementing numerical models and data inversion, assimilation, and uncertainty quantification techniques suitable for large scale applications. I am currently focusing on developing an integrated data-driven modeling system to simulate and predict the circulation and the climate of the Saudi marginal seas: the Red Sea and the Arabian Gulf.
