|Keywords:||Remote Sensing sensor;Image processing;Erosion and accretion;Digitization;Shoreline change|
|Abstract:||Evolution of the ‘State of Kuwait’ coastline from 1972 to 2011, studied using multi-temporal remote sensing images procured from LANDSAT sensors were examined in this study. Shape and nature of the coastline within the area of study is the product of a number of factors such as anthropogenic interaction, natural processes including those relating to geomorphology, tidal currents, wind and wave climate, sea level, sediment movement and ecology. Kuwait coastline is distinguished by its great variety of coastal types and makes it distinctive in terms of its evolution.|
