  This study provides a review of the status of some important stressors on coral reefs in the Persian Gulf and Oman Sea with emphasis on temperature and salinity and their associated biological responses. Coral reefs in this area live under unique temperature conditions and the seawater temperature ranges are 14 to 34°C. This sharp ten degrees centigrade change occurs in warm to cold season transition in December and might cause a thermal stress. Coral reefs are amongst the most diverse and productive ecosystems in the earth and the resources resulting from coral reefs are essential to the food quality of millions of people residing in tropical coastal populations. Unfortunately, the health of the world's coral reefs is in severe risk. Best estimates suggest that about 10% of coral reefs are already degraded. Another 30% are likely to destroy further within the next 20 years. Coral reefs are distributed throughout the tropical and sub-tropical waters of the world, mostly in developing countries.

  This study presents results of mass balance calculation for petroleum discharges produced by littoral countries mainly into the Persian Gulf in their endangered or polluted points. Recent budget for total and local point source petroleum discharges to marine environment of the region calculated according to the outputs of a model based on reported trend in global petroleum discharges rates in the past three decades. Agreement between calculated petroleum discharges and reported values indicates the accuracy of applied assumptions. Based on above description, it has been estimated that petroleum discharges in the Persian Gulf is about 120186 t year-1 or 600930 barrels year-1.
