Three man-made islands, Palma Jumeirah, Deira Islands and Palma Jebel Ali, are located on the Dubai coastline in the United Arab Emirates. The islands were created in 2001. Since November 2011 only Palmt Jumeirah is finished. It has the shape of a crescents crowned by a half moon.
When completed, Palm Jebel Ali will take a similar form. As with Palm Jumeirah, each of the islands will house a variety of housing, recreation and recreation centres, adding a combined 520 kilometres of non-public beach to the cityscape. Palm Jumeirah (coordinates: 13750) is made up of a log, a 16 wedel crest and a half-moon isle forming an 11 km long breaksweep.
It is five by five kilometres in size. The city is 78 kilometres from the coast of Dubai. Inhabitants began relocating to the Palm Jumeirah property in late 2006, five years after the start of reclaiming acres. The Palm Jumeirah Monorail was opened in 2009 and is linked to Dubai Tram 9.
Dubai's mega-projects have become a popular concern of environmental activists. reenpeace has criticised the Palm Islands for their unsustainability, and Mongabay.com, a website devoted to protecting the rainforest, has been aggressive in attacking and claiming the man-made islands of Dubai: More than 5 million m³ of stone from 16 stone pits in Dubai.
One important limitation was that the estimate for the duration of the 4-year period of implementation was too long. In order to speed up the building work on the isle, 40,000 people were employed in 2 different layers per working 12 hour each one. One of the main issues is erosion (caused by wind and current ), as it removes the sands that make up most of the islet.
Damages to sea ecosystems (e.g. reef and fishing loss), as well as disturbance of the reproduction cycle of fisheries located near the Dubai coast. Investigations by sea scientists into this phenomena showed that the newborn fry could not live under the Dubai coast due to continuous structural and ecological changes (e.g. shifts in the building structure, stones in motion and the impact of vibrations).
Mongabay. com (Rainforest Protection Organization) and Greenpeace have strongly opposed the construction of the Dubai Palm Islands. Dubai is relying on its coastguard programme to correctly handle its coastlines and impacts. The Dubai coast observation programme, founded in 1997, began with the study of the base line bathhymetric (measurement of ocean or sea waters ) and the topographical surveying of the coast of Jumeirah (Dubai).
