Lithosphere Dynamics and Sedimentary Basins of the Arabian by François Roure, Ammar A. Amin, Sami Khomsi, Mansour A. M. Al

By François Roure, Ammar A. Amin, Sami Khomsi, Mansour A. M. Al Garni

This publication specializes in the hyperlinks among deep earth (mantle) and shallow methods in parts of lively tectonics within the Arabian Plate and Surrounding components. It additionally offers key info for power assets in those components. The booklet is a compilation of chosen papers from the duty strength of the overseas Lithosphere application (ILP). It contains a collection of study stories from the center East, North Africa and the Mediterranean area targeting (1) the structure, geodynamic evolution and modelling of the crimson Sea rift process and its atmosphere, and tectonics and sedimentation within the Gulf of Corinth, (2) the crustal structure and georesources of the North Algerian Offshore, (3) Reservoirs, aquifers and fluid transfers in Saudi Basins, Petroleum structures and salt tectonics in Yemen and (4) Cretaceous-Eocene foreland inversions in Saudi Arabia.

''Preface An advent on a lighter word than is common for a e-book of this nature, person who is straightforward and no more educational, is due for a number of purposes: 1. The textual content is clearly of a tough nature (as the foreword be aware could imply). 2. popular scientists have usually applied trouble-free contexts and examples to introduce complicated rules (Einstein in his Biography of Physics implements the plotting of a secret as a fil rouge to the representation of relativity concepts).

Given the configuration of stations, we focused our examination along profile AA′, which extends from the southern Red Sea Rift axis inland to station HASS (Fig. 19). This allowed us to examine the most extensively rifted portion of the lithosphere as well as the structure beneath both the Arabian Shield and Platform. However, for comparison, we also examined the more northern profile BB′, which extends from the northern rift axis across the Arabian Shield to station ARSS. Similar to profile AA′, the Moho and LAB along BB′ are shallowest near the Red Sea and become deeper towards the Arabian interior.

The onset of the basement faults took place in the Late Precambrian when the Arabian Plate was subjected to east-west 38 M. Al Mahmoud Fig. 4 Regional hydrogeologic cross-section through the Upper Cretaceous and Tertiary aquifers of eastern Saudi Arabia showing the down-dip and cross-formation flow (modified after Bakwiecz et al. 1982) compressive stresses (Al-Husseini 2000). Reactivations of these faults during the alternating tectonic phases of the Phanerozoic resulted in the evolution of anticlines, unconformity surfaces associated with uplifting, and faulting of the overlying sedimentary formations.

G. Majorowicz and Jessop 1981; Chapman et al. g. Hitchon 1984; Luheshi and Jackson 1986; Person and Garven 1989) have revealed that moving fluids are capable of transferring a large amount of heat over long distances which can cause significant disturbance in the thermal regimes of sedimentary basins. The general pattern of heat distribution in sedimentary basins constituting regional aquifers is that the heat dissipates in the up streams of aquifers by the flow of relatively cold groundwater from recharge areas, and increases in the down streams of aquifers towards discharge areas (Diao et al.
