Abstract Sedimentological, geochemical, and paleontological investigations of the coastline of northeastern Oman have provided the authors with an in-depth insight into Holocene sea levels and climate conditions. The spatial distribution and species assemblage of mangrove ecosystems are analyzed. These ecosystems are sensitive to changes in sea level and precipitation and thus reflect ecological conditions. The close proximity to archaeological sites allows us to draw conclusions regarding…

Geoarchaeological investigation of the Quriyat coastal plain (Oman)
Mangrove ecosystem collapse during predicted sea-level rise: Holocene analogues and implications
Review of the stratigraphic record of mangrove ecosystems during sea-level changes of the Holocene shows that low islands will be particularly vulnerable to the 1088 of mangrove ecosystems during the
Eustatic and climatic controls on the development of the Wahiba Sand Sea, Sultanate of Oman
Aeolian sand sea accumulations can serve as valuable archives of climate change in continental environments. The Wahiba Sand Sea is situated at the northern margin of the area presently affected by
Mangroves of Oman during the late Holocene; climatic implications and impact on human settlements
Abstract. Pollen and micropalaeontological analyses carried out on mangrove swamp sediments of Suwayh, Oman (22°05.589'N, 50°40.033'E) reveal environmental changes linked both to climate (monsoon)
Mangrove Sedimentation and Response to Relative Sea-Level Rise.
The persistence of mangroves implies an ability to cope with moderately high rates of relative sea-level rise, however, many human pressures threaten mangrove extent, resulting in a continuing decline in their extent throughout the tropics.
Event stratigraphy, paleoenvironment and chronology of SE Arabian deserts
Late Quaternary history of the coastal Wahiba Sands, Sultanate of Oman
Continental sediments and geomorphological features of the coastal Wahiba Sands, Sultanate of Oman, reflect environmental variability in southeastern Arabia during the late Quaternary. Weakly
The vulnerability of Indo-Pacific mangrove forests to sea-level rise
It is found that sediment availability can enable mangrove forests to maintain rates of soil-surface elevation gain that match or exceed that of sea-level rise, but for 69 per cent of the study sites the current rate of sea level rise exceeded the soil surface elevation gain.
