Abstract—The development, life style and supportive system have exploited the coast more rather than the interior offshore land of Kuwait, thereby altering the morphological landscape through built up structures, population migration, coastline change, habitat change and land use apart from natural process. As a result Kuwait’s coastal landscape has been subjected to tremendous evolution which was studied from remotely sensed images, historical pictures, aerial video survey and various visuals. Each of the section documents the research result in itself that was accomplished with specific purpose that takes the entire studies to the ultimate goal of exploring the trend in coastal evolution. The important tool used for the study was Remote Sensing Techniques, Geographical Information System, Interpretation of Images, Analytical Hierarchical Procedure, Rapid Impact Assessment Matrix, and Carrying Capacity Model.
Index Terms—Images and photographs, mesopotamian marshland; demographic; coastline; challenges and conflicts; interrelationship diagraph.
