One of nine sector papers on Abu Dhabi’s State of the Environment, the Physical Geography sector paper describes the spatial characteristics of the various natural phenomena that exist in the lithosphere, atmosphere and hydrosphere of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi through its chapters on soils, water, geology and climate.

First released in 2006, the nine sector papers were revisited by AGEDI in 2009 to address previously identified shortcomings, while further enhancing the knowledge base by increasing the level of more current data and information. The review of these papers aimed to increase access to current information, re-engage stakeholder participation, build the partner network, and catalog all the information and data into a knowledge base that the stakeholder community could access and further develop via the Geospatial Portal.
