Climate change caused the changes in earth surface temperature, precipitation, sea surface level, wind speeds, wave heights, coastlines, etc. Estimation of the effect of climate change is of great importance in long-term studies of such parameters. In this study, the effect of climate change on average wind speed near Chabahar, Gulf of Oman is assessed until the year 2100. For this purpose, wind speed was obtained from a global circulation model CGCM3.1 using the data for three scenarios, i.e. A2, B1 and A1B. The results indicated that there is no significant change in average wind speed due to the climate change near Chabahar. Furthermore, the seasonal distribution of the wind speed illustrated that wind speed will increase slightly in spring and summer and decrease slightly in autumn and winter.
