Subsidence history and seismic stratigraphy of the Western Musandam peninsula, Oman-United Arab Emirates Mountains

Abstract:

Seismic reflection profiles, exploratory well, and outcrop data are used to determine the stratigraphy and tectonic subsidence and uplift history of the western Musandam peninsula. Five major regional megasequences have been recognized: (1) Permian to Late Cretaceous rifted margin sequence, (2) Late Cretaceous Aruma foreland basin sequence that evolved in response to the obduction of the Semail Ophiolite, (3) early–mid-Cenozoic Pabdeh foreland basin sequence that formed due to orogenic loadin...
