Syn‐rift sedimentation on either side of the Red Sea axial trough is essentially identical to that of the Gulf of Suez. As a consequence of this, the Gulf of Suez ingredients of mature oil‐prone source rocks, reservoirs and seals are present in the Sudanese Red Sea.

It varies in width from 12 to 17 miles (19 to 27 km) and is miles ( km) long. The gulf lies in a pronounced cleft between hills rising abruptly to about 2, feet ( metres).

that were em placed from Y emen to E gypt, mostl y along. The eastern Gulf of the Red Sea is narrower than the western; it is a long blue line of water running up through the midst of a region that is totally desolate. The mountains too are here higher and more picturesque than those that skirt the Gulf of Suez; the valley between them is less broad; and there is not the same extent of wide desert.

The Red Sea (Arabic: البحر الأحمر Al Baḥr al aḥmar ‎, Hebrew: Yam Soof ים סוף or HaYam HaAdom הים האדום) is a seawater inlet of the Indian Ocean, lying between Africa and connection to the ocean is in the south through the Bab el Mandeb strait and the Gulf of the north lie the Sinai Peninsula, the Gulf of Aqaba, and the Gulf of Suez (leading to.

Abstract. The Gulf of Suez formed as the northern segment of the late Oligocene-early Miocene Red Sea rift. Rare occurrences of basaltic dikes that cut and flows that are interstratified with the oldest syn-rift strata, a basal red bed sequence (Abu Zenima-Nakheil formations), suggest that rifting.

The Red Sea is part of an extensive rift system that includes from south to north the oceanic Sheba Ridge, the Gulf of Aden, the Afar region, the Red Sea, the Gulf of Aqaba, the Gulf of Suez, and the Cairo basalt province.

Historical interest in this area has stemmed from many. Field surveys in the Gulf of Suez‐Northern Red Sea area revealed the structural pattern and evolution of this tertiary continental rift and provided constraints on the continental rifting process.

The structure has been controlled, at every scale, by four major trends of faults: N0°–20°E, N°–°E, N°E–°E and. The connection to the ocean is in the south through the Bab el Mandeb strait and the Gulf of Aden. To the north lie the Sinai Peninsula, the Gulf of Aqaba, and the Gulf of Suez.

The Red Sea is a Global ecoregion. The sea is underlain by the Red Sea Rift which is part of the Great Rift Valley. In the north the sea is accessed from Middle Eastern countries via the Gulf of Aqaba (or Gulf of Eilat.) The Mediterranean Sea provides a conduit south through the Suez Canal and Gulf of Suez.

This salty sea is just over miles ( km) across at its widest point, and about 1, miles (1, km). The Gulf of Suez and Red Sea rift basin underwent a period of rapid subsidence from the early Miocene to the Pliocene during which time a thick (up to 4 km) series of marine evaporites accumulated within the basin.

The evaporitic sequence interfingers with carbonates and clastics over structural highs within and along the margins of the basin. Sedimentation and Tectonics in Rift Basins: Red Sea - Gulf of Aden presents new case studies and synthesises the results of recent research on the sedimentological evolution of the Red Sea - Gulf of Aden rift system.

This rift basin is generally regarded as the best natural geological laboratory in the world in which to study the processes of rift formation. New regional biostratigraphic and environmental analysis from north to south through the Gulf of Suez and into the Red Sea have placed the Nubian sequences into a regional chronostratigraphic framework.

The Nubian Upper Cretaceous pre-rift sandstones are observed in the field on both the Egyptian and Saudi Arabian side of the North Red Sea. One is still in Egypt, as one faces the proposed Red Sea crossing at the Gulf of Suez.

Egypt borders the entire western shore of the Gulf of Suez. Whatever the Hebrews camped along that coast, they would still be in Egypt. However, the book of Exodus tells us that before they came to the Red Sea crossing, they had ALREADY LEFT Egypt.

This study explores the spatial distribution of seismicity, the pattern of b-values, gravity and magnetic anomalies, heat flow data, and focal mechanism solutions to more thoroughly understand the present-day stress distribution and the nature of the crust, which characterize the rifting process in the northern Red Sea region.

The region shows alternating low and high b-values in congruence. The Red Sea Rift is a spreading center between two tectonic plates, the African Plate and the Arabian extends from the Dead Sea Transform fault system, and ends at an intersection with the Aden Ridge and the East African Rift, forming the Afar Triple Junction in the Afar Depression of the Horn of Africa.

The Red Sea Rift was formed by the divergence between the African Plate and the. Abstract. The evaporites of the Red Sea-Gulf of Suez rift system occur at many stages during the evolution of the rift, earliest Miocene (Aquitanian-Burdigalian) evaporites formed within relatively shallow proto-rift depressions.

In geology, a rift is a linear zone where the lithosphere is being pulled apart and is an example of extensional tectonics. Typical rift features are a central linear downfaulted depression, called a graben, or more commonly a half-graben with normal faulting and rift-flank uplifts mainly on one side.

[citation needed] Where rifts remain above sea level they form a rift valley, which may be. The Red Sea tract consists of onshore areas around the periphery of the Red Sea that are believed to be underlain by the potash-bearing Miocene South Gharib Formation and equivalent units as mapped by Bosworth and others (), Eritrean Geological Survey (), Egyptian Geological Survey and Mining Authority (), Sudan Geological and.
