W. A. Shinn (reported in Loreau & Purser, 1973, p. 289) observed subaqueous gypsum in the Khor Odaid on the eastern coast of Qatar. C. Kendall, pers. comm. 2006). In contrast, primary subaqueous precipitation of gypsum has not been observed anywhere in Abu Dhabi, except in large brine-filled artificial shot holes left by seismic crews when it forms encrustations of beautiful selenite twins on the surrounding walls. Elsewhere, Gunatilaka & Shearman (1988) described gypsum laminites (balatino type) and gypsum-carbonate/organic couplets from shallow ephemeral pools on the sabkha of Kuwait.

Diagenetic changes between the relatively unstable ferromagnesian-mineral-rich rocks derived from the Oman Mountains and the groundwater have produced a dolomitic alteration product, named “barzamanite” by Maizels (1988). , 1982; Baltzer & Purser, 1990) indicating that, in the past, considerable fluvial sediment reached the Gulf from the Arabian Peninsula. 33 Inland sabkhas, such as the Umm al Samim, occur 200 km away from the Hajar Mountains at the foot of the alluvial fans or in inter-dune areas elsewhere, although these have received relatively sparse attention.
