Abstract

The aim of this paper is to provide a background to the regional trends in textural parameters and mineral associations along the shore-zone between Rabigh coast and near the outlet of Sharm al-Kharrar in the eastern Red Sea coast. The behavior of the sediments in the shore zone profile varies with different subenvironments. The shore zone sediments are composed mostly of skeletal carbonate sands. High Mg-calcite and aragonite are the dominant carbonate minerals like the shallow water carbonate in tropical seas
