Abstract

The Wahiba Sand Sea is composed of 2 physiographic units that can be roughly divided into northern and southern regions. The Northern Wahiba is predominantly a large megaridge system, whereas the Southern Wahiba mostly comprises linear dunes, sand sheets, and nabkha fields. Although the dunes of the 2 regions are of different ages, it has previously been hypothesized that their sans were derived primarily from the same source, namely coastal sands
