MBRSC Monitors Changes of Dubai Coastline Landscape

The Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) has announced the results of conducting an analytical study to monitor the changes on Dubai coastlines during varying periods between 2009 and 2015.

The study covered the natural geographical and human changes the Dubai coastline witnessed, from Al Mamzar Beach Park to the Dubai Waterfront Project and the Arabian Canal.

This study classified the land attached to the coast, and identified the expansion and the partial and total erosion ratios. The study also aims to calculate the length of the Dubai coast in 2015 and provide an estimated futuristic vision of the coastline.

The paper divided the Dubai coastline into eight zones (A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H) and showed a partial expansion in different parts of the coast at about 6%, due to a number of vital projects taking place in the emirate, such as the completion of Al Mamzar Corniche Beach, the 1000 meter-long project, Jumeirah Bay Island, Jumeirah One Beach (1380 meters) renovation project and Pearl Jumeirah, as well as the Umm Suqeim 1 and 2 Beach upgrade project, Bluewaters Island and the Dubai Water Canal project.

The study showed the construction of a number of breakwaters in order to protect the coast from medium-high waves, in addition to the construction of sand barriers in order to stop coastal erosion and sediment transport and to preserve the coast.
