  Red Sea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Red Sea is an inlet of the Indian Ocean between Africa and Asia.
The Red Sea is regarded as one of the most saline water bodies in the world that is governed by the effects of the water circulation pattern, resulting from evaporation and wind stress in the Red Sea.
Wind Regime: With the exception of the northern part of the Red Sea, which is dominated by persistent north-west winds, with speeds ranging between 7 and 12 km per hr., the rest of the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden are subjected to the influence of regular and seasonally reversible winds.

 Science Plans RCL Cont.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
The Red Sea and Gulf of Aden (Figure 7) are the closest modern analogs to the rifting and rupturing of continental lithosphere which formed the vast majority of “Atlantic-type” continental margins, and are the location where the processes that shaped the early development of rifted continental margins can be studied with the fewest tectonic complications.
The northern Red Sea is thus a non-volcanic continental margin at which both seafloor spreading has recently begun and the mid-ocean ridge is in the process of becoming established.
Since the history of Red Sea opening is reasonably well described, one way to test this would be to investigate the history of crustal shortening in the fold and thrust belts on the northern boundary of the Arabian plate.

 Prince of the Red Sea
It is thought that the Red Sea and Gulf breeding populations are resident, with a small number of over-wintering migrating individuals from Fenno-Scandinavia.
Breeding success has not been monitored throughout the Red Sea region, but recent surveys of ospreys within the Kingdom suggest that ospreys are vulnerable to the disturbance and demise of breeding pairs within loose colonies: increased development of the Red Sea coast and islands are thought to be responsible for this.
Since the Red Sea coast is typically of barren sand or rock and sparsely vegetated, most ospreys nest on the ground, in stark contast to the relatives in colder climes that nest at the top of tall trees.

 The Northern Red Sea
Surrounded by one of the world's largest expanses of sand, the Red Sea laps the shores of an ecosystem seemingly devoid of life.
Some sea anemones on the reef seem to glow a brilliant shade of orange, a color that comes from algae in their tentacles.
But for marine scientists and divers who are interested in the mysteries of the sea, it is a living laboratory and a stage for observing one of the most fascinating examples of symbiosis in the marine world-the relationship between clownfish and sea anemones.

FT data from the Egyptian side of the Red Sea indicate the commencement of an erosion event at ~34 Ma (earliest Oligocene) and renewed or increased erosion at ~25 Ma (earliest Miocene).
Further basin evolution work in the Southern Red Sea with concomitant effort in the North is needed to better constrain these times and styles of regional rifting, their associated spatially variant beta magnitudes, the regional and local partitioning of strain, and the dynamic response of the stratigraphy.

 Northern Red Sea: Nucleation of an oceanic spreading center within a continental rift
The northern Red Sea is an amagmatic continental rift in which an oceanic spreading center is beginning to develop.
A new compilation of marine geophysical data permits delineation of the structure of the northern Red Sea and of the manner in which the transition from continental to oceanic extension is occurring in this rift.
The margins of the northern Red Sea are formed by large, apparently active faults on the seaward edge of the narrow continental shelves.

 Seasonal Patterns and Mysteries in the Red Sea
The Red Sea is a body of water with a number of "limits" -- limited inflow of water from either end, through the Suez Canal in the north or the Bab el Mandeb to the south, which opens to the Gulf of Aden and the Arabian Sea.
Note that the slight angle of the long axis of the narrow Red Sea (off the direct north- south line) makes this Hovmoller plot fairly easy to interpret, because the western latitudes of this body of water are in the north, and the eastern latitudes are in the south.
One of the remarkable aspects of the spring bloom in the northern Red Sea is that it is such a small bloom.

I am diving in the Red Sea, though in an environment so different from the familiar blue water and towering coral reefs which typify the Red Sea that it is hard to believe it is part of the same body of water.
The sea around these desert landscapes, however, is a veritable boiling cauldron of marine life that is outstanding in its abundance and in its unique concoction of species.
A clue to the enormous wealth and abundance of marine life that is found in the southern Red Sea lies in the cold, nutrient-rich deep water upwellings that occur in this area.
