Dubai's Palm Jumeirah Construction: Why Did It Turn into a Pile of Sand?

Dubai's Billion-Dollar Artificial Islands

In recent days, Dubai, one of the important centers of tourism, has been drawing attention with its unprecedented artificial island project. However, why did these billion-dollar projects, once captivating the world's attention and sparking debates, turn into a pile of sand?

Dubai's Goal: Doubling the Coastline with Palm Jumeirah

Dubai embarked on artificial island projects to become a tourism hub and revitalize its economy. One of the most remarkable projects, Palm Jumeirah, aimed to double Dubai's coastline. This would increase property values and attract tourists and investors.

Construction Process: Started with the Transportation of Sand from the Sea

The method used to create Dubai's artificial islands began with land reclamation. Sand was transported from the seabed and placed in the designated areas. The sand was then compacted to form a solid foundation. The construction of artificial islands went through several stages, starting with the creation of a large breakwater.

Issues with Artificial Island Construction: Erosion and Subsidence

However, concerns about the stability of artificial island construction began to arise over time. Some reports claimed that erosion and subsidence were occurring on the islands, and even that the islands were sinking into the sea. Climate change and rising sea levels posed significant threats to these artificial islands.

Warning Signs: Slow Disappearance of the Islands

Concerns about the islands' disappearance were brought up by Penguin Marine, an international maritime company. The channels between the islands were closed, and regular measurements were taken. However, satellite images obtained by NASA revealed that the islands were beginning to vanish. According to the data, Palm Jumeirah was moving five millimeters away each year.

Problem Caused by Erosion: Sinking of Dry Islands

Over time, the dry islands suffered from erosion, and many of them began to sink. Dubai's coastline is losing large amounts of sand every year. However, Dubai remains hopeful that the construction will be completed and the sea will reclaim the land.
