Transcript of U.A.E. Coastline and Beach Erosion

This artificial land is called "Dubai World"
What is happening to the artificial land?
Some possible solutions to help improve this...
The possible solutions is to rebuild some land back but has consequences of having more billions of dollars wasted, but at the end will be eroded again. What would also help is to build barriers made out of big and strong rocks that would protect the property from erosion by waves and long shore currents.

U.A.E. Coastline and Beach Erosion

What about this Artificial Land!?
The artificial land in Dubai is starting to sink back to the sea. This is causing a waste of more then $10 billion dollars only for Palm Jumeirah. The artificial land is sinking away because of the erosion. The process happens when waves meet the headlands, or pieces of land that project the water. A huge of amount of energy is released when waves crash into the headlands, or pieces of land, which causes the land to erode.
