Abstract

The Arabian Gulf, an area experiencing fast urbanization and significant economic growth, is facing impending and complex environmental issues due to rising sea levels and the potential occurrence of tsunamis. An exhaustive analysis of scientific literature spanning from 2010 to 2022 elucidates the intricate interaction between natural and anthropogenic elements that contribute to the phenomenon of sea level rise in the region. The analysis includes important factors such as the melting of glaciers, thermal expansion, and local subsidence. The combination of these elements highlights the susceptibility of coastal areas, affecting essential infrastructure and communities. This study expands its scope to include the historical background of tsunamis in the Arabian Gulf, investigating geological and seismic indicators that enhance our comprehension of probable occurrences. The study employs sophisticated modeling approaches to evaluate possible tsunami scenarios and their potential consequences on heavily populated coastal areas). The results emphasize the urgent requirement for proactive risk management measures, which involve creating and executing strong early warning systems, adaptable infrastructure planning, and community participation activities.  In addition, the report outlines the particular weaknesses of the Arabian Gulf, highlighting the possible social, environmental, and cultural consequences of rising sea levels and tsunamis. By analyzing successful case studies from around the world, the research identifies and condenses the most effective strategies that can be applied specifically to the Arabian Gulf region. This entails the incorporation of not just technology remedies, but also underscores the need for global cooperation and multidisciplinary methodologies to guarantee all-encompassing and enduring risk reduction tactics. Conclusively, this study not only identifies and thoroughly examines the impending dangers presented by the rise in sea levels and tsunamis in the Arabian Gulf but also provides a proactive and pragmatic plan for achieving sustainable development in response to these climate-related difficulties. The suggested measures, which combine scientific knowledge with practical considerations, offer a comprehensive strategy to protect the region's future from the many effects of rising sea levels and tsunamis.
