        Return to top. Paleozoic Tectonics. The Arabian plate contains a wide range of tectonic elements, from Precambrian shield and Precambrian (Infracambrian) basin to Cenozoic fold-thrust belt, locally with ophiolite ().During the Paleozoic, the plate was affected by drift and rotation that resulted in changes from equatorial to high southern latitudes and back to equatorial (at the end of the. Australia - Australia - The Western Plateau: The Precambrian western core area, known geologically as a shield or craton, is subdivided by long, straight (or only slightly bowed) fractures called lineaments. Those fractures, most obvious in the north and west, delineate prominent rectangular or rhomboidal blocks, some of which have been raised to form uplands; others have been depressed to.

        Southern Arabian Shield: Significant amounts of rainfall (up to mm/a) enable a water supply that is based solely on renewable water resources, if good water management is implemented. This is the only area in Saudi Arabia, where a sustainable use of the water resources is possible. The foundation for sedimentary deposition in Saudi Arabia can readily be generalized into two positive structural elements - on the west, the western Arabian shield, a vast dominantly Precambrian complex of igneous and metamorphic rocks; on the south, the Arabian portion of a crystalline massif extending northeast from the horn of Africa.

Oil and Gas Fields of Saudi Arabia. Underlying these sediments in most of onshore northeastern Saudi Arabia, there is a faulted Precambrian basement, with alternating horsts and grabens directed along the N-S Arabian Trend.

Fleck, W. Greenwood, Et Al. All the oil fields of Saudi Arabia are of the structural type and they all lie in the northeastern part of the country, including the Saudi offshore portion of the Persian Gulf.

These oil field structures are mostly produced by extensional block faulting in the crystalline Precambrian basement along the predominantly N-S Arabian Trend which.

Introduction [2] The Arabian shield occupies the western part of the Arabian plate and appears to be relatively stable amidst the vibrant geodynamic setting of the Middle East. This Precambrian region evolved primarily during the late Proterozoic [Stein and Goldstein, ] when it was subjected to episodic the Pan‐African orogeny little tectonic activity has occurred.

GEOLOGIC SETTING OF THE SOUTHERN ARABIAN SHIELD Stratigraphy: The Precambrian rocks of the southern part of the shield were divided into eight major stratigraphic units, of which seven were given group status.

The oldest were considered to be the Khamis Mushayt Gneiss and Hali Groups of which the former could be a basement. Geologic History, Stratigraphy and Tectonics.

The Precambrian tectonic evolution of the region is poorly understood. Geologists infer that the Northern Turkestan domain likely formed along the margin of the Proterozoic Baltica-Siberia continent. The Tarim Block may have belonged to Gondwanaland, based on paleontological gh paleomagnetic data for the Tien Shan mountains is.

Precambrian - Precambrian - Greenstones and granites: Greenstone-granite belts such as those of the Archean continued to form in the Proterozoic, albeit in greatly reduced amounts.

They are characterized by abundant volcanic rocks that include pillowed subaqueous basalt flows and subaerial and subaqueous volcaniclastic rocks. Magnesian komatiites are for the most part absent, however.More information about submitting a proposal and producing a book for the Society can be found on its website: It is recommended that reference to all or part of this book should be made in one of the following ways: Mazumder,R.&Eriksson, P.
