Al Jubail Island Masterplan Development
Our initial role on the Project was to conduct an environmental feasibility study to determine the natural constraints of the Project. This then developed into a strategic environmental assessment of the entire island with a number of baseline environmental surveys including; mangrove, avifauna, marine and terrestrial ecology surveys, soil, and long term air quality and noise surveys.
Hassyan Lagoon Environmental Monitoring
The Jebel Ali (Hassyan) Intertidal Lagoon is located along the Jebel Ali coastal area near the boundary of Dubai and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE). WKC were contracted to undertake a monthly survey of the marine intertidal environment surrounding site to ascertain the current condition of the ecosystems and the biodiversity present.
Regional Modelling of Meteorology and Radioactive Nuclide Fallout over the Gulf
On behalf of Abu Dhabi Government department, WKC undertook a detailed meteorological and air dispersion modelling study in order to determine the potential impact from a hypothetical release of radionuclides into the atmosphere on particular assets throughout the UAE. The study involved a detailed research phase during which time various long-range modelling systems were appraised and compared (such as CALPUFF, HYSPLIT and FLEXPART).
Abu Dhabi to Dubai Highway Project
WKC undertook an extensive noise mapping study (using SoundPLAN) for the proposed new highway linking the Emirates of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, a significant and important transportation infrastructure Project in the UAE. In addition to the modelling and mapping exercise, WKC undertook extensive, long-term noise baseline measurements to act as a reference point for the predictive modelling studies. All studies were undertaken in accordance with EAD, DM and international guidelines and procedures.
