King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) Bottom Pressure Variability in the Red Sea
R. Limeburner, R. Beardsley and H. Jahdali
We deployed an array of three bottom pressure/temperature/conductivity (PTC) instruments at Jeddah (JP), Thuwal (TP) and Rabigh (RP) along the Saudi Arabian coast near the KAUST
study site. This PTC array will accurately measure the regional tidal variability of the sea surface and characterize the low frequency along-shore and across-shore pressure, temperature and salinity gradients and their variability. The bottom pressure instruments
measure total pressure (water pressure plus atmospheric surface pressure) continuously with an accuracy of about 1 mm and will record an average pressure approximately every 5 minutes. This technique will effectively filter out small amplitude surface waves over the
averaging period. To estimate the sea surface elevation (SSE), we subtract the atmospheric surface pressure (obtained from a nearby meteorological station or buoy)) from the total pressure and calculate the depth of the instrument from the remaining pressure using the
local water density (computed using the co-measured temperature and conductivity data) and hydrostatics. The most energetic component of SSE variation is normally the diurnal or semidiurnal tide. We will be able to calculate the surface tidal constituents at the deployment
locations with a high level of accuracy, and use these results with other high-quality tidal data to test and improve both local- and regional-scale numerical tidal models. After subtracting the tidal constituents from the SSE time series, we will look at the subtidal SSE variability that
is dynamically linked with the low-frequency current variability. In particular, the along-coast and cross-shelf SSE gradients play key roles in the along- and cross-shelf momentum equations, and the direct estimation of these gradients using the proposed bottom PTC data
will provide important insight into the wind driven currents and critical data to assimilate into the proposed regional circulation model.
