This study was carried out on the changes of sea level in various tidal stations in the Persian Gulf. Stations were selected in which the long term tide data had been recorded for a period of over one year. The mean sea level was calculated through the use of tidal data, while the effects of wind force, temperature and barometric effect was considered on it. Using statistical models the effects of various atmospheric elements on the changes of sea level was assessed and the best models relating to sea level was introduced and physically analyzed. The Mean Sea Level (MSL) in Bandar Abbas and Bushehr has been studied for a period of eleven years (2000-2010). The MSL showed an increasing trend with an increase of 5cm and 4cm during the relevant period in Bandar Abbas and Bushehr, respectively. In the mentioned period, the amplitude was 35cm in Bandar Abbas and 50cm in Bushehr. The sea level and temperature rise and pressure reduction in the Persian Gulf region reflects the gradual climate change in this area.
