... During 2004–2010, we studied the sand dunes of Oman using trenches, optically stimulated luminescence age dating, and modern wind data. This work was undertaken for Petroleum Development Oman to define modern analogs for ancient dune reservoirs that produce oil and gas in the sultanate...

... not for the most part be preserved in large areas of the sand sea. Observed contrasts in the preserved record of eolian activity between Al Qâfa and Liwa, and the Wahiba Sand Sea, may in part relate to contrasting eolian bedform morphology. More recent work in the Wahiba Sand Sea of Oman has utilized core...

West of the central and northern Wahiba Sands are two fan-like areas that on Landsat imagery are distinctly lighter in colour. They comprise at least 14 vertically stacked but partly exhumed...

... and extend for more than 3 km offshore. Aeolianite underlies most if not all of the Wahiba Sands, making this the largest area of aeolininite in the world ( Gardner 1988 ). The aeolinites are thought to have formed during Pleistocene high-atitude glaciations when sea levels were lower, exposing more...

... ( Goudie and Sperling, 1977 ) and the Wahiba sands of Saudi Arabia ( McKee and Ward, 1983 ). Significant eolian deposition occurs when deflation eventually supplies enough grains to initiate eolian sedimentation. This may occur near the maximum relative sea-level fall, because the largest area...
