This Final Report is the last of five reports being prepared by the Dead Sea Study
team under the auspices of the World Bank's exploration of the feasibility of
discharging seawater and/or reject brine from desalinated Red Sea water into the
Dead Sea in an effort to chart the physical, chemical and biological impact on the
Dead Sea and its environs. This study began in February 2010 and culminated in
August 2011.
The report summarizes the project's background, reviews the scientific work and
insights gained over the past decades into the evolution from the past to the
current state of the Dead Sea, describes the methodologies used for the study, and
presents the up-to-date findings of the research teams in relation to the questions posed by the World Bank.
