Pearl of the Gulf, Qatar

An ecological survey within the adjacent environment of the proposed Pearl of the Gulf Development in Doha, Qatar.  The development will require extensive dredging and land reclamation within a region which is thought to contain both seagrass and algal communities.  The requirement for an ecological survey was an integral condition of the contract for the development’s construction works, as set by the Ministry of Environment.  Sediment and Water Quality Assessments were also carried out.
