Coastal Protection and Risk
Dubai Municipality developed a sophisticated model for operational forecasting system for Dubai coastal waters. This system is a coupled suite of meteorology and ocean models with data management infrastructure and web-based tools (http://www.dubaicoast.dm.gov.ae). The forecasting model is capable to predict met-ocean parameters 5 day ahead and issues coastal warnings, if any by Email and SMS. The system is also capable to simulate inundation and oil spill scenarios. Dubai Municipality uses its forecasting informations for implementing and maintenance of marine projects, ensuring a clean, safe and sustainable environment in the Dubai coastal zone.
