Auther : J. S. AL-SULAIMI AND W. J. PHILLIS

Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research, P.O. Box 24885, Kuwait; and Department of Geology, University College, Aberystwyth, Wales, United Kingdom

 

ABSTRACT

 

The main characteristics of the Semail and Hawasina nappes are summarized, and the published postulated mechanisms for their generation and movement are reviewed. A new model which is consistent with recent information concerning the nature of foreland thrust belts is presented, and it is suggested that the nappes developed by gravitational spreading from an elevated zone produced when a spreading ridge reached a subduction zone.
