THE HYDROGEOMORPHOLOGICAL FEATURES OF QARO ISLAND, STATE OF KUWAIT

Auther : Dr. Yehia R. Marmoush

 

Qaro Island has considerable natural marine habitants and sandy beaches.  Qaro Island is uninhabited except for some coastguard staff.  The coastguard accommodation building and associated facilities are often at risk due to seasonal northwestern storms.  Special concern had been expressed about the stability of Qaro Island against seasonal northwestern storms.  The study investigates the prevailing hydrodynamic parameters around Qaro Island (i.e. water level variations, tidal currents and wave fields), and the geomorphological characteristics around the island (i.e. beach profiling) under different environmental conditions.  The tidal water levels, tidal currents and beach profiles were measured and the water wave fields were numerically simulated.  The study focuses on the serious stability problem associated with the prevailing hydrodynamic parameters around Qaro Island.  The present study provides decision-makers and planners with an actual accounting of the island’s stability for necessary action.  Effective solutions and a proper protection system are recommended.
