... documented, but their correlation with a key succession in the Mirbat area of southern Oman, containing a sedimentary record of two Neoproterozoic glaciations, is poorly understood. Integration of lithostratigraphic, chemostratigraphic and new U–Pb detrital zircon data suggests that the Mirbat Group is best...

... are now well-documented. However, a key succession in the Mirbat area of southern Oman, the Mirbat Group, which includes a stratigraphic interval missing elsewhere in the Arabian Peninsula, remains poorly understood. The <1.5 km-thick Cryogenian (850–635 Ma) Mirbat Group comprises an essentially...

..., an apparent polar wander (APW) path of Arabia is proposed between ca. 630 and 500 Ma. The palaeomagnetic directions of Mirbat obtained by Killner et al. (2005) in rocks 720–660 Ma old are therefore assumed as primary, and taking into account that Oman was an independent block of the Arabian-Nubian craton...
