    This paper discusses an experimental study of vertical mixing in an aquatic canopy. Vertical variation of physical characteristics of stems is fairly observed in the field and leads to variation in frontal area. This can affect both the flow and the mixing process.We experimentally investigated the effects of vertical density variation on both flow and vertical diffusion at high Reynolds numbers (turbulent flow range). Using rigid cylinders, we simulated step-like density variation in a flume. Vertical mixing coefficient was measured by recording vertical mixing of dye in the flume. The results indicate that vertical mixing coefficient decreases as density increases in depth. Velocity...

    Monthly mean satellite derived Chl-a, aerosols, wind, SST, PAR, and turbidity datasets were used to investigate the possible factors regulating phytoplankton variability in the Persian Gulf. The spatial correlation analysis revealed two distinct regions of SST and PAR, and a relatively uniform spatial correlation pattern of the other parameters. The cross correlation between aeolian dusts and Chl-a was significantly positive with 1–3 months offset. The pattern of spatial correlation between Chl-a and SST was positive in the shallow regions without time lag, and was negative with time offset of 3–5 months in deeper regions. The cross correlation between Chl-a and north-ward winds were...
