    Suppose the island is near the land then it takes away the natural creeks (where the sea water can hit the land with less damage). Due to the absence of natural creeks the island may be flooded.   As a naturalist often bored by nature writing, I am stunned by An Island Called California. I first read it two decades ago, and I've just rediscovered it. Bakker's survey of the ecosystems of this massive and diverse state is lyrical, lively, and full of ecological s: 5.

      Four of which are ranked among the ten largest man-made structures. Of the four, two serve as International airports. Kansai was the first of the airports to come up on an artificial island, followed by the Chubu Centrair. Rokko Island, a year long project was completed in , and provides space for residence, working, recreation, and study. The Island Ecosystem Specialist Group provides specialist expertise on terrestrial and marine island ecosystems. The Group is a global network of dedicated experts who provide informed guidance on research, policy and management, in order to promote effective biodiversity conservation and sustainable development in island environments.

      The Artificial Island Project (“AI Project” or “Project”) consists of electric transmission facilities determined to be necessary to address the reliability and stability of the generating units located at the Artificial Island Nuclear complex in Salem, NJ. The transmission facilities include a transmission line across the Delaware River that would connect to a newly built substation.   FILE - The alleged on-going reclamation of Subi Reef by China is seen from Pag-asa Island in the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, western Palawan Province, Philippines, May

Ernst Frankel, in Macro-Engineering, Publisher Summary. Artificial islands have a long history and are usually constructed by reclamation, which implies building up the island by depositing soil, sand, or other construction materials until the water surface is penetrated and an island surface created.

Common dredging methods: Suction Dredging: Sand will be dredged by putting the suction tube deep (> 10 m) into the sand layer.

For example, in the artificial island construction of the Kansai international airport in Osaka Japan, it was impossible to stop the settlement of the Holocene clay layer found in the seabed. However, the bad effects of the settlement were minimized by artificially speeding up the process by the sand drain method.
