บทคัดย่อ

This article reviews circulation patterns in the Gulf of Thailand investigated using hydrodynamic models by using (1) wind and tide data and (2) wind, sea surface temperature and salinity data as model inputs. The reviews show that circulation patterns from both approaches are similar. During the northeast monsoon, current flows into the gulf in the south and flows out in the east of the gulf. The current turns counter-clockwise in the upper gulf region. Current still flows into the gulf in the south and flows out near the eastern coast during the first transition monsoon period (March-April). During the southwest monsoon, current flows into the gulf in the south and along the western side of the gulf, and flows out of the gulf in the eastern side. A clockwise circulation develops in this season. Current starts to change directions by flowing into the gulf in the east and out of the gulf in the south during the second transition monsoon period (October).
