Hydrodynamic Predictions System for Kuwait Territorial Waters

The System will provide useful information to scientists, engineers and the general public on the hydrodynamic conditions in the Kuwaiti territorial waters. One of the main purposes is to provide online daily hydrodynamic forecasting of some of the important oceanographic parameters of Kuwaiti coastal waters and the Arabian Gulf.

Kuwait RealTime HydrodynamicVirtual Monitoring System (Khydro System)
    Khydro system was developed by (Al-Salem K., 2008) for hydrodynamics virtual monitoring in real-time for Kuwaiti territorial waters, it is an efficient and easy-to-use system. Although more advanced features are anticipated to evolve in the future, this version is sufficiently user-friendly and can provide and displays highly detailed output of hydrodynamics virtual monitoring information in real-time for Kuwait Water’s.
Digital Hydrodynamics' Forecast for Kuwait Water's (DHF system)
    DHF is an Operational forecast systems provide hourly nowcasts and short-term (one day) forecasts that are updated every 24 hours of water levels and currents, wave height, wave period, wind speed and air temperature. Because these predictions are based on a hydrodynamic model, they are considered to be computer-generated forecast guidance. System developed by (Alsalem K. 2009)
Global Tide Level Prediction Model (Global KTide Model)
    Global KTide model was developed by (Al-Salem K., 2011) for Global Water Level Prediction; This version is sufficiently user-friendly and can provide the base information for water tide elevation for Global Regions (Asia, Africa, Europe, North America and South America). The information provided by this model can be further used to calculate sediment/pollutant transport and used as input for tidal circulation models.
Kuwait Tide Level Prediction Model (Ktide Model)
    Tide model Model was developed by (Al-Salem K., 2004) for Kuwaiti territorial waters and the Arabian Gulf , it is an efficient and easy-to-use model. Although more advanced features are anticipated to evolve in the future, this version is sufficiently user-friendly and can provide the base information for water tide elevation for Kuwait Waters and the Arabian Gulf. The information provided by this model can be further used to calculate sediment/pollutant transport and to predict the tidal circulation for Kuwait waters and Arabian Gulf.
Arabian Gulf 2D Tidal Current and Water Level Prediction Model (KGulf Model)
    New Version of Combined 2D Tidal Current and Tide Level Predictions for Kuwait and Arabian Gulf Water. Named as KGulf Model (developed by Al-Salem K., 2009) using the tidal constituents for tidal current and water Level in the x (east) and y (north) directions were calculated for total wet grids of 3692 nodes which covers all Arabian Gulf Waters.
Kuwait Tidal Current Predictin Model (Kcurrent Model)
    A tidal Current Model were developed for Kuwaiti Water and Arabian Gulf named as KCURRENT Model (developed by Al-Salem K., 2005) using the tidal constituents for the tidal currents in the x (east) and y (north) directions were calculated. Based on the amplitude and phase for these constituents (22 constituents were used), it is possible to predict the tidal currents at the locations where the constituents were determined.
Back Tracking of Oil Slick Movements in Offshore of Arabian Gulf  Marine Waters  (BOil Model (2013)    (Testing))
    A Numerical model has been developed based on the solution of the governing partial differential equations of flow and immiscible pollutants (BOil) for predicting the back track oil slick in Kuwaiti offshore territorial waters and Arabian Gulf waters. The model has been coupled with KGulf Model, a hydrodynamic numerical model (K. Al-Salem, 2012).
    This velocity distribution will be taken as the input for back tracking oil transport simulation model. The Lagrangian discrete parcel algorithm has been used to predict the back oil spills and the model consider Monte Carlo Statistical technique to overcome the random walk in Lagrangian discrete parcel algorithm.
    It can be used either as a real-time basis to predict the back movement of oil spill for unexpected accident of crude carriers in the Kuwait offshore waters or for Quick respond for decision marker on any oil spill accidents in the sea.
OIL SPILL Trajectory Model for Arabian Gulf  (KOil Model (2012)    (Testing))
    KOil is A Numerical model based on the solution of the governing partial differential equations of flow and immiscible pollutants (Oil) for predicting the oil slick drifting in Kuwaiti territorial waters and Arabian Gulf waters (K Al-Salem 2012).
    The model has been coupled with KGulf Model, a hydrodynamic numerical model(K. Al-Salem 2009). KGulf gives the 2D velocity distribution on the surface of water body and in the case of transient analysis; the velocity distribution is calculated at each computational time step. The Lagrangian discrete parcel algorithm has been used to predict the oil spills and the model considers various processes including advection, mechanical spreading and evaporation. It can be used either as a real-time basis to predict the movement of oil spill or as a scenario model to analyzes the possible impact of accidental oil spill.
    KOil model not only simplifies the modeling process but also provides in-depth analysis in overcoming environmental problems. This is because of the fact that different Simulation sites can very easily be accommodated in the computational model
Kuwait OIL SPILL Model (KOil Model (2008))
    The Kuwait OIL SPILL model(KOil Model), developed by Khaled Al-Salem (2008) was updated by including an Active Server Pages (ASP) technology for internet. The model produces the tidal currents from the KCURRENT model described earlier. The model can run in statistical or deterministic mode. The deterministic mode Can use both Constants wind data or Realtime Metrological Data For Max. Of 6 days hourly wind data. The statistical mode is based on historic wind data and determines the areas that might be affected by a certain oil spill and the probability of occurrence. 
Under Water OIL Seepage Model (KSPoil Model)
    The Prediction of Natural Oil Seepage For Kuwait Water's and Arabian Gulf (KSPoil Model), Updated by Khaled Al-Salem (2010) and including an Active Server Pages (ASP) technology for internet. The model produces the tidal currents from the KGulf model described earlier. The model can provides a description of movement of the oil over the water column. It considers the thermodynamics and hydrodynamics of the plume. The simulation model considered two phases of an oil plume. a hlep report is inculded for user.
KISR OIL SPILL Model (K.O.S. Model)
    The KISR OIL SPILL model, developed by K. Al-Salem and Lo (1993) was updated by including an Active Server Pages (ASP) technology for internet version as: http://www.hceatkuwait.net/web-OilSpil/oilsurf/kuwoil.aspx . The model produces the tidal currents from the KCURRENT model described earlier. The model can run in statistical or deterministic mode. The statistical mode is based on historic wind data and determines the areas that might be affected by a certain oil spill and the probability of occurrence. 
Arabian Gulf OIL SPILL Model (A.G.O.S Model)
    The Arabian Gulf OIL SPILL model was developed by (Al-Salem K., 2007). This model was updated and extended model from the KISR OIL SPILL model which was described earlier in this section. An Active Server Pages (ASP) technology was developed for internet. To link to the model through the internet is http://www.hceatkuwait.net/web-OilSpil/gulfoilspil/gulfoil.aspx
Kuwait Wind-Wave Prediction Model (Kwave Model)
    KWAVE model was developed by (Al-Salem K., 2005) to predict the significant wave height and period from wind data for the Kuwaiti territorial waters and the Arabian Gulf. An empirical model is developed for the Kuwaiti territorial waters to provide an efficient prediction of wave parameters. This technique can be useful in providing approximate wave conditions from wind data. It is expected that the technique can provide good predictions for storm conditions. For swell conditions, it will not provide good results. Due to the relatively small water body of the Arabian Gulf in most cases the wind will not vary considerably over the full Gulf.
Wave Agitation Prediction Inside A Harbor (KHarbor Model)
    Construction of a new harbor or the changes of harbor layout or selection of the type of breakwater has to be preceded by a detailed analysis of wave agitation inside a harbor and the analysis of wave interaction with harbor structures. Such analyses are necessary wave climate inside the harbor basins and to find out the conditions for harbor resonance. KHarbor Model was Developed by Al-Salem K. 2009.
Extreme Storm Surge for Kuwait Water's (KSurge Model)
    The extreme water level at any location is an important parameter required for the proper design of a coastal structure. Storms are atmospheric disturbances characterized by low pressures and high winds. A storm surge represents the water surface response to wind-induced surface shear stress and pressure fields. Storm-induced surges can produce short-term increases in water level that rise to an elevation considerably above mean water levels. A KSurge Model was developed by (Al-Salem K., 2009) to predict the the extreme storm surge at Kuwait Coastal line. Ps. The Model is slow in downloading Map.
