The results from a ∼ 1 km resolution HYbrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM), forced by 1/2° Navy Operational Global Atmospheric Prediction System (NOGAPS) atmospheric data, were used in order to study the dynamic response of the Persian Gulf to wintertime shamal forcing. Shamal winds are strong northwesterly winds that occur in the Persian Gulf area behind southeast moving cold fronts. The period from 20 November to 5 December 2004 included a well defined shamal event that lasted 4-5 days. In addition to strong winds (16ms-1) the winter shamal also brought cold dry air (Ta=20°C, qa=10gkg-1) which led to a net heat loss in excess of 1000Wm-2 by increasing the latent heat flux. This resulted in SST cooling of up to 10°C most notably in the northern and shallower shelf regions. A sensitivity experiment with a constant specific humidity of qa=15gkg-1 confirmed that about 38% of net heat loss was due to the air-sea humidity differences. The time integral of SST cooling closely followed the air-sea heat loss, indicating an approximate one-dimensional vertical heat balance. It was found that the shamal induced convective vertical mixing provided a direct mechanism for the erosion of stratification and deepening of the mixed layer by 30m. The strong wind not only strengthened the circulation in the entire Persian Gulf but also established a northwestward flowing Iranian Coastal Current (ICC, 25-30cms-1) from the Strait of Hormuz to about 52°E, where it veered offshore. The strongest negative sea level of 25-40cm was generated in the northernmost portion of the Gulf while the wind setup against the coast of the United Arab Emirates established a positive sea level of 15-30cm. The transport through the Strait of Hormuz at 56.2°E indicated an enhanced outflow of 0.25 Sv (Sv≡106m3s-1) during 24 November followed by an equivalent inflow on the next day. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

Zentyal develops a server solution that combines cloud-based services to make network management easy and secure for small and medium-sized businesses. Basically, it’s an open source alternative to Microsoft’s Windows Small Business Server. The startup says it is now at more than 30,000 monthly downloads, three years after its founding. Tom Henriksson, Partner at Open Ocean Capital and former Head of Corporate Business Development at Nokia, has joined Zentyal’s board of directors alongside Jorge Mata, founder and president of Berg Networks and founder of MyAlert. Open Ocean was the first major shareholder in open source company MySQL, which was later sold to Sun Microsystems for $1 billion.
