Geographical and Ecological Features of Kish IslandKish Island is a small land like a ship went aground warm and shallow waters of the Persian Gulf. Microecosystems of Kish Island are extensively dominated by phenomena caused by vast territorial waters whose daylong temperature changes throughout the year are very trivial. Water-vapor pressure in Kish Island is somehow high in most days of the year (relative humidity: 50-60%). The average daily temperature difference in the Island throughout the year is less than 9-10 degrees, and temperature falling never reaches the freezing or zero degree. According to the meteorological data, the average humidity per kg of warm and arid climate of the Island in December and July is 15 and 25 kg respectively. Kish climate from October to April is pleasantly warm and the island lives in a desirable biological condition in this period. However, the island’s weather experiences hot and sultry days from May to October and the average daily climate in this period is largely same. Since the gulf’s water is cold yet in October and the relative humidity is low, Kish experiences an arid climate with mild breezes which can be generally considered as desirable. Temperature difference between the warmest and coldest months in the Kish Island is roughly 16 degrees; as the coldest and driest month of Kish Island, September has the lowest rate of evaporation with 12% fluctuations, while August with highest rate of evaporation and fluctuations about 28% is considered as the warmest month of the Island. Extensive evaporations in August influence random rainfalls as monsoon showers provoked by moist air of the Indian Ocean in this region. August random rainfalls are often flooding and short and often soak the soil and will be evaporated because of high temperature of the earth in this region. Rainfalls during this period are divine blessings that must be controlled through small and large dams and dikes. Although Kish is located over a salty dome, unlike other islands (e.g. Qeshm) the head of its underlying salty domes has not raised so far, so the land’s salts are not emerged due to rainfalls and they can be controlled through dikes long times after rainfalls (the salt lands of the Island are rare rather the whole area of the island).
