This research is concerned in studying the physical properties of water and surface waves of the Mediterranean Sea at the Syrian coast, along the High Institute for Marine Research (HIMR), (north of Lattakia). This field of study includes direct measurements of salinity, sea surface temperature (SST), the height of waves and its role in the surrounding of a study station built for this purpose in the position (N 35035'51, E 35044'49) located by GPS. Beside that we recorded the air temperature and the wind speed, above the mentioned station. These studies were done in the period of October 2000 till September 2003. From these we deduced the monthly rate for each parameter. These studies shows that the SST ranges between 15-30C30 while the salinity fluctuates between 36-39%. The wave heights which can be used to generate electric energy were re-corded in January and February. Also, we found that there is a proportional relation between the wind speed and the wave height in the study area
