Coastal Zone Management

Stone Mobility, Port Phillip Bay Entrance

Rock material left over from the dredging of Port Phillip Bay may be transported along the seabed by wave and current action. DHI has calculated the movement of the rock material and suggested methods to prevent the rocks from migrating into the nearby environmentally sensitive deep canyon. Furthermore, DHI has suggested dredging methods which may reduce the rock migration.

The objective of the project is the establishment of an Integrated Coastal Zone Management Plan for the whole Iranian coastline. It covers the Caspian Sea, the Persian Gulf and the Oman Sea. DHI will prepare a methodology for the execution of the project and will furthermore support the preparation of a metadatabase as well as a database to be combined with GIS facilities. DHI will assist with the assessment of the environmental data and give general support to the project partners in the excution of the project. DHI is the only foreign partner in a Joint Venture with 5 Iranian Institutions with Sazeh Pardazi Iran Consulting Engineering Company (SPI) as the Project Manager.
