Abstract This paper documents the structural history of the central Oman Mountains after the obduction of the Semail ophiolite onto the eastern margin of the Arabian continent during the Late Cretaceous (Santonian/Campanian). The post-obduction history is recorded by a Late Campanian/Maastrichian-Tertiary sedimentary cover to the mountain belt. These sediments have been deformed within an extensional tectonic regime which is continuous northeastwards into the Gulf of Oman hinterland basin and…
