Tectonic evolution of southern Oman, Arabian peninsula

Orthogneiss of southern OmanTerrane accretion along southern Arabia took place between 850–650 Ma during the “Pan African” orogeny, i.e. the collision between East and West Gondwana. Due to limited data it is not possible to say whether the eastern margin of the orogen, and hence the foreland of East Gondwana, lies within the Arabian Peninsula or further east. This investigation emphasizes understanding the tectonic evolution of the oldest parts of the bedrock in southern Oman, using geochronology and geochemistry.
