A detailed measurement of water quality parameters like temperature, salinity, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyl-a, turbidity and trace metals in Gulf of Oman is underway in order to study oil-related pollution caused mainly due to ballast water. The measured data will eventually be used to calibrate a 3D water quality model for future prediction. The measured data for water quality obtained so far suggest that the concentration of dissolved oxygen in the coastal waters of Gulf of Oman is at a critical level. Any further decrease in the oxygen levels may put marine life in the study area under serious threat.
