The Persian Gulf in south of Iran is important strategically why is used for fisheries, shipping and some other application. Sound channels as a physical phenomenon is studying in all of water surface, why it is used in marine science such as military. This subject has been studied and considered in the Persian Gulf and to some extend in the Oman Sea. This event happens in the Persian Gulf seasonally, but it takes place there weakly, because this water basin is a shallow water resource. Of course forming seasonal and weak sound channel in the Persian Gulf will be compared with in the Oman Sea. It could be seen that sound channel formation in the Oman Sea happens strongly due to that it happens in deep water basins contemporarily.
