(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Experts in Oman are conducting a study to find out if climate change over the Atlantic and Pacific oceans has any effect on Oman's climate.

''The study will find the effect of different sea surface temperatures on Oman's climate,'' said Dr Sultan al Yahyai, chief of numerical weather prediction section, Public Authority for Civil Aviation.

Dr Yahyai said the study will find out the correlation by calculating Oman's climate variables and the climate indices in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

''This study is also known as the global teleconnection system. Teleconnection implies a link between the climate of a region and the climate indices in different regions of the globe. Global teleconnection system connects what happens in one region to another,'' he said.

The study, Dr Yahyai said, will help improve the accuracy of weather forecast.

''The study will also help reduce the effects of climate change. We can also predict occurrences of tropical cyclones in advance.

''A tropical cyclone in Oman occurs when the temperature on the surface of sea rises above 26C. We are studying past tropical cyclonic events in the Arabian Sea and North of the Indian Ocean from the 1980s. This will help us find the link between the sea surface temperature pattern and different tropical cyclones that have hit Oman.

The study began at the end of 2013 and it is expected to be over by next year.

''We also plan to study the effects of climate change on different sectors such as energy, tourism, agriculture and transport,'' Dr Yahyai ad
