Morphological changes of the artificial inlets of the Bardawil lagoon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The topographic changes in the shoreline around the artificial inlets of the Bardawil lagoon have been studied using aerial photographs. The amount of sediment dredged during the years 1970-1977 is about 50% of the amount predicted in 1970. It is suggested that the difference between the two is the result of the 'new' sediment budget of the South-East Mediterranean due to the effect of Asswan High Dam.
