Paleozoic Stratigraphy of the Middle East. Said Al-Hajri1. 1Saudi Aramco. ABSTRACT. The Late Neoproterozoic and Paleozoic stratigraphy of the Arabian Plate, is reviewed, with special focus on selected stratigraphic intervals corresponding to proven or potential petroleum systems, in comparison with similar occurrences in North Africa.

Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle .   Free Web tutorials sequence stratigraphy, tutorials carbonate petrology, seismic interpretation sequence stratigraphy exercises Lower Cretaceous South Africa, seismic interpretation sequence stratigraphy exercises Bahamas Miocene, seismic interpretation sequence stratigraphy exercises Lower Cretaceous Alaska, clastic outcrop interpretation sequence stratigraphy . The Arabian Shield hosts several economical rare-metal alkaline granites that are poorly understood. This work aims to evaluate the nature of the mineralization in three rare-metal granites from the Arabian Shield, showing distinct mineralization styles ranging between disseminated mineralization at Al-Ghurayyah, pegmatite and hematized granite.

Geologic mapping combined with structural, petrographic, and geochemical investigations were used to evaluate the motion and paleogeographic setting of the northern Nabitah fault zone. The orientation and asymmetry of small structures in three areas along the fault zone suggest that motion was primarily left-lateral strike slip. East of the fault zone, the Afif terrane is underlain .

Evolution and Mineralization of the Arabian–Nubian Shield, Volume 1 presents the exploration for mineral resources in the Precambrian basement terrain underlying large areas of the Middle East.

This book discusses the geological investigations of the tectonic evolution, structure, and metallogenesis of the Arabian–Nubian Shield. These tectonic events are four pronounced phases in the tectonic history of the Syrian Arc System (SAS), the collision of the Afro-Arabian and Eurasian plates as Cited by:   Paleozoic successions in Saudi Arabia are exposed around and bordering the south, north, and northeastern edge of the Arabian shield.

They are represented by the Wajid group in the south and by the Taymah, Tabuk, Qalibah, Huj, and Buraydah groups in the north and northeast.

Abstract: Paleozoic Stratigraphy and Hydrocarbon Habitat of the Arabian Plate The Paleozoic section became prospective in the early seventies when the enormous gas reserves in the Permian Khuff reservoirs were delineated in the Gulf and Zagros regions and oil. The present paper presents review of the stratigraphic and tectonic evolution of the Muglad basin, the primary emphasis on the tectonic evulsions and geology of the oil productive horizon.

The basement, source, and reservoir rocks of this basin are not uniformly distributed, since this basin had periods of complex tectonic operation. Abstract. The primary geologic structures of the northern Arabian plate in western Syria include the intracontinental Palmyride mountain belt and the interplate boundary of the Dead Sea transform fault system.

The Palmyride belt strikes NE and is sandwiched between two relatively stable crustal blocks of the Arabian platform: Cited by: Geochemistry and Tectonic Evolution of A clear model of tectonic evolution of the Arabian shield is still an enigma.

Over the millennium tectonic forces created a rift valley which separated the plate into two valley filled with water becoming the Red Sea and the Arabian Peninsula is almost equally positioned north and south of the Tropic of Cancer.
