Marine Ecological Survey, Bahrain

Marine ecological surveys of Diyaar Al Muharraq reclamation development off the east coast of Muharraq, Bahrain. Baseline marine surveys and environmental monitoring for the reclamation and proposed borrow areas were undertaken.  A number of survey methods were used, including: diver recording; grab sampling of both sediment and infauna; drop video sampling (for habitat mapping); and water quality sampling (both laboratory analysis and in situ monitoring using a hydrolab).
