ABSTRACT

The sand transport rate in Kuwait was estimated by a sand movement mathematical model.  The model calculates the potential sand drifts in each direction sector and presents the net sand transport for a certain time period. The model shows that Kuwait is subjected to intense sand encroachment problems. The net annual rate of sand movement in Kuwait is estimated to be more than 62,000 kg/(m.yr) toward the southeast.
