A gravity survey was conducted over and around Jabal Hafit, located on the border between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Oman on the western edge of the northern Oman Mountains, as part of a study to investigate the subsurface structures and sedimentary sequences of the area. This new data, together with outcrop geology, well data and measurements of physical properties of rock samples, was integrated with a new interpretation of reprocessed commercial seismic reflection profiles recorded… 

Gravity anomalies of the United Arab Emirates: Implications for basement structures and infra-Cambrian salt distribution

Gravity measurements onshore and offshore of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have been used to construct a new Bouguer gravity anomaly map of the region. The gravity data, which has been gridded at

Structure of the northern Oman Mountains from the Semail Ophiolite to the Foreland Basin

Abstract The northern Oman Mountains record the Late Cretaceous emplacement of the Semail Ophiolite and associated subduction trench and deeper-water sediments into a foredeep on the downwarped

Salt intrusions in Jabal Qumayrah, northern Oman Mountains: Implications from structural and gravity investigations

The Jabal Qumayrah area, 50 km ESE of Al Ain and Buraimi, preserves a culmination of Jurassic and Cretaceous continental slope deposits (Sumeini Group) that was emplaced during the Late Cretaceous

Seismic stratigraphy and subsidence history of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) rifted margin and overlying foreland basins

Regional seismic reflection profiles and deep exploratory well data have been used to determine the structure and evolution of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) rifted margin and overlying foreland

The 2018 Mw 7.5 Highlands Earthquake in Papua New Guinea: Implications for Structural Style in an Active Fold and Thrust Belt

The Papuan Fold and Thrust Belt (PFTB) in Papua New Guinea is actively forming within a complex tectonic setting at the boundary of the obliquely converging Australian and Pacific plates. The

Structural style and fault kinematics of the Lower Eocene Rus Formation at Jabal Hafit area, Al Ain, United Arab Emirates (UAE)

Predicting the Fracture System in Shah Structure in Onshore Abu Dhabi Using Analogue Modeling Approach

This paper aims at predicting the fracture system associated with the structural development of the Shah Structure in relation to a deep-seated basement fault. It discusses the possible geometry,

Late Eocene Uplift of the Al Hajar Mountains, Oman, Supported by Stratigraphy and Low‐Temperature Thermochronology

Uplift of the Al Hajar Mountains in Oman has been related to either Late Cretaceous ophiolite obduction or the Neogene Zagros collision. To test these hypotheses, the cooling of the central Al Hajar
