Excellent Post! They look like helipads to me. A work in progress. Of course an agricultural project
would work too.

This looks to me like a centrifugal way to separate solids from liquids, and the highlighted area exiting from the raised center of the structure is a discharge area this could account for the smoothing of the sand in the area enclosed by the grid. What I find more important is the area surrounded by trees to keep prying eyes of anyone passing bye in the corner of the grid. Typically liquids are pumped into the side of a circular tube and the centrifugal force makes the solids stick to the walls. Maybe waste management. The underground city idea lacks free sun light and and any sort of utilities from the surrounding area. Just my two cents

Seriously?? I can take a pic of a tile floor also...with photo shop I can also add what ever I like... or mirror an image to make a pic. Some of these hoaxes are just WAY to obvious...

Those are giant reservoirs. The grid pattern is because each section will be a crop of some sort. Looks pretty modern so I doubt they are even working yet.

They don't look like domes, they look more like craters.

The road spirals downwards, not up.

Looks like it to me anyway.


The shadows cast indicate the sun is shining from the south east of the shot based on the central structure. Carry that thought to the north west side of the "Dome" and you can see there is more light reflecting off the south east part of the dome then there is on the north west part. It is convex and not concave.

As a guess, i'd say it was either fresh water storage for the new 'island' developments UAE have built, or sewerage.


I would agree with water storage or treatment. Perhaps even desalinization plants. If you zoom out you can see that this is an agricultural area and the grid lines are dirt roads marked out to form plots for what look like some kind of tree groves. You can see just to the north west there are more areas gridded out like that and have neat rows of trees.

May even be underground oil storage.

Or could be doomsday bunkers for the rich that will be buying the multimillion $ apartments and private islands in the area.

Unless we get someone stop by who actually lives there, or has worked on these things (or knows someone who has), we're only guessing.


If you look even farther to the north west a bit you can see the man made "Palm Islands" they built as development sites for the rich.

After looking to day, I did some research and made a phone call - to a graphic design friend that's near by in the UAE. They are very deep water wells, with water storage, and irrigation all in one. If you lower-minded people look to the left in Google Maps you see clearly the older versions of the "DOMES". THE GRID IS CROP FIELDS - The dome is like a giant water pump - Ocean right down the road folks, also as they just built the largest man made structure right down the road too! Added about 1.7 to 2 million people.....

The pics are almost 4-6 years old in Google Maps, he said there is nothing more but vegetables and plant fields.

Mods Close this please, CASE CLOSED!


Hello - this is what it is! It is nothing else folks -

Hey, I've been on that road and lived in UAE before. Never seen these.

Interesting find - do you have the coordinates so we can check it out as well?

Umm. No expert, but they look like the tops of missile silo's to me.

What are the coordinates on Google Earth? Looks like a silo or underground base to me,

Here is the hive base for you - same concept for water delivery as this wonderful place

HERE

This is a combo of deep water well and irrigation system.

I can't believe people actually think these are craters. Use your damned eyes, look at the shadows.

A 6 year old could tell you that they're obviously domes.

The coordinates were posted on either page 2 or 3 of this thread....

If it was, we would be able to find something about it on the intertron. As far as I can tell, it's nothing but a plan at the moment, nothing has been done.

Definitely looks like an underground storage facility after looks at Google Earth.

My belief is that those are underground eco-cities. Why? Because it resembles their project for one. Follow link bellow:
Eco -cities project in UAE desert


So it is resilved, I think.

Looks like a vertical hydroponics greenhouse, at least some country
has made a move in this direction instead of letting most of the water
evaporate you keep it in a closed loop.

A desert is the most unlikely place to get flooded if a massive global flood ever occurs



I've seen you make this statement a couple of times now. Mind if I ask where you've gathered such an awkward assumption? Deserts typically have the lowest elevation of any place on Earth. It seems to me like they would be the first place to get flooded were a "massive global flood" ever to occur. No?

Cheers,

If you look at Google Earth the entire location is covered with concrete. I would say it looks like more of an airport than a green house. You need glass to let the sun through to grow plants.The place is huge and I bet they are not growing plants. It has multiple entrances, which appear as roads to an elevator,
