The Arabian Gulf region was equatorial and isolated from the Tethys Ocean. A sea-floor spreading system, consisting of rifts and transforms, ran parallel to the margin of the Arabian and Indian. 2 days ago  The official journal of the Saudi Society for Geosciences, the Arabian Journal of Geosciences examines the entire range of earth science topics focused on, but not limited, to those that have regional significance to the Middle East and the Euro-Mediterranean Zone.

The journal features peer-reviewed original and review articles on such topics as: geology, hydrogeology, earth system. Geologic history, stratigraphy and tectonics. Saudi Arabia is underlain by the Precambrian igneous and metamorphic rocks of the Proterozoic Arabian Craton.

Up to km ( mi) of sedimentary rocks from the Cambrian through the Pliocene accumulated on the shield, including many oil-bearing units. Within these younger rocks, a large western facing escarpment formed in central Saudi Arabia. An interpretation of the evolution of the stress field in northeastern Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf from Late Proterozoic to Late Cenozoic is shown in Fig.

Although large areas of the country are covered in Quaternary sediments. ˜e bedrock geology is well exposed in the Hajar Mountains and the Musandam Peninsula of the eastern UAE, and along the southern side of the Arabian Gulf west of Abu Dhabi. Detection of the link allows a continuous km arc of faults and troughs cutting the Mesozoic-Cenozoic rocks of the Arabian Shelf to be recognized.

The arc, here called the East Arabian fault zone, is interpreted as forming the western and southern boundaries of the East Arabian block, a tectonic unit underlying at least km 2 of the.

The highly saline, oxygen‐saturated waters of the Arabian Gulf (hereafter the Gulf) sink to intermediate depths (– m) when they enter the Arabian Sea, ventilating the World's thickest oxygen minimum zone (OMZ).

Here, we investigate the impacts of a warming of the Gulf consistent with climate change projections on the intensity of this.

The Arabian Gulf is a marginal and semi-enclosed sea situated in the subtropical region of the Middle East between latitudes 24 o and 30 o N and longitudes 48 o and 57 o E (Figure 1).The Arabian Gulf constitutes part of the Arabian Sea Ecoregion, and represents a realm of the tropical Indo-Pacific Ocean (Spalding et al., ).It is a shallow sedimentary basin with an average depth of 35 m.

Arabian Desert - Arabian Desert - Geology: The Arabian Desert consists of two major regions. The first, the ancient Arabian platform (a segment of the African Shield), is in the west. It is composed mainly of Precambrian gneiss (dated to between billion and roughly million years ago) and was assembled roughly to million years ago.

The Oxfordian to Callovian sequences, such as the Najmah Formation, are generally considered the main source rocks for both the Jurassic and Cretaceous reservoirs in most of the Arabian Gulf (Ayres et al., ; Wilson, ; Abdullah and Kinghorn, ).

In some fields in Kuwait, the Najmah limestone is fractured and produces oil.

Initiation of the Gulf of Aqaba—Dead Sea transform plate boundary occurred in the Middle Miocene, completing formation of the independent Arabian plate. The Neotethys Ocean also ceased to exist in the Middle Miocene following a collision between Eurasia and the Arabian plate to form the Bitlis–Zagros suture and fold belt.

Petroleum exploration is intensified and huge discoveries are anticipated. A giant Jurassic gas field along the coast of the Arabian Gulf discovered recently tops tcf, the largest single reserve ever.

Merely said, the marine atlas of the western. All of the Arabian Gulf's economic visions emphasise opening up the economy to foreign direct investment as a way of improving performance.

Usually, policymakers focus on the jobs directly created by the investment and the resulting knowledge transfer as the main benefits to the domestic economy. The Emirate’s mountains, alluvial fans, and sand dunes, which extend between the Gulf of Oman and the Arabian Gulf, offer glimpses into tectonic plates, the nature of the small peripheral plate.

Fox, Thomas S. Ahlbrandt. The Dead Sea occupies a linear down-dropped region between two roughly parallel faults along the central segment of the major northsouth- trending crustal rift that extends about 1, km from the Red Sea through the Gulf of Elath to Turkey.

This rift or geosuture separates the Arabian crustal sub-plate on the east from the Sinai one on the west. An origin as early as Precambrian is possible. Paperback.

The studied area was politically unstable untilhence the geological work was limited and not in detail. The Arabian Peninsula is set off from Africa by the Red Sea from Iran by the Arabian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman and is bounded on the south by the Arabian Sea and the Gulf of Aden.

The Arabian Peninsula can be divided into three main divisions: shield, shelf and mountains. Arabian Shield: The Arabian Shield lies to the west of the Peninsula.

The study, published in Nature Communications, examined ‘cryptobenthic’ fishes, small fish at the base of coral reef food webs, in the Arabian Gulf and the Sea of Oman, and linked the reduced diversity and productivity of communities in the Arabian Gulf to energetic deficits that preclude the existence of many species.

Qatar is a peninsula in the east of Arabia, bordering the Persian Gulf and Saudi Arabia, in a strategic location near major petroleum deposits. Qatar occup km 2 (4, sq mi) on a peninsula that extends approximately to km (99 mi) north into the Persian Gulf from the Arabian Peninsula.

Varying in width between 55 and 90 km (34 and 56 mi), the land is mainly flat (the highest. Casting the lead aboard SS Bandra off the Saudi Arabian coast in July The shallowness of the Arabian Gulf often required soundings to be taken, but also made it highly accessible for oil exploration.

The pearl industry, which had once been the mainstay of the Gulf states, was in decline when the first oil was struck on Bahrain in The Hanifa Formation consists mainly of shales in the lower organic-rich, lamina ted lime mudstone and low-porosity skeletal wackestone, which constitutes the main Upper Jurassic source Rocks, and a grain-rich carbonate s that include skeletal packstone, grainstone and coral/stromatoporoid boundstone in the upper part and northern region, which represents the Hanifa Reservoir (Ayres et al.

Achievements With a year career he has experience in the oil industry and with academia, both as professor and Dean of College of Science at UAE University; the latter enabled him during the past 26 years to publish more than scientific papers in international journals and 8 books on his research interests which concentrate on the petroleum geology of the Middle East, water resources.

During the Late Jurassic to the Early Cretaceous the ancient NW-SE Najid Faults trend were rejuvenated, with final separation of the Arabian Plate from the African Plate in the Neogene along the ENE-WSW (Gulf of Aden) and NNW-SSE (Red Sea) trend.

This had profound impacts on the geology of the area. However, the mechanisms behind this distribution of foreign materials along the Arabian Gulf coast, in particular, are still poorly understood.

It is the central proposition of this book that the local societies living along the shores of the Arabian Gulf coast played an active role in the acquisition of Ubaid pottery and other objects.
