... and starts to dip back toward the east, thus defining a broad hanging-wall syncline (the BabaEl Qaa syncline; Figs. 5 and 6 , C–C′, D–D′, E–E′, and Fig. 7 ). The syncline is strongly asymmetric, having a very short, steeply dipping eastern limb and a long, shallowly dipping western limb. Similar...

..., a Miocene synrift fan delta ( c. 2 km 2 ) made up of chert-pebble conglomerates was deposited by flow from Wadi Baba in the trough of a syncline formed on the downthrown side of the Baba Border Fault ( Figs 7 and 8a ). These chert pebbles were transported through Wadi Baba as a result of erosion of pre...

...Mohamed Abd El-Wahed; Mahmoud Ashmawy; Hossam Tawfik Abstract We examine the evolution of the northwestern Red Sea, Egypt, by study of the Quseir–Umm Gheig subbasin. The subbasin records two main tectonic events. The first event is related to development of Late Cretaceous synclinal basins due...

... in Miocene sandstones located in the El-Qaa fault block c . 10 km south of the present study area ( Gawthorpe et al . 1997 ). In that locality, the sandstones have been interpreted to represent lower middle shoreface deposition, and a similar depositional environment is adopted for this facies. The lower...

In addition, the lack of dip discordance between the Nukhul and Mokattam Formations suggests that the Hadahid monocline was also...
