Sedimentological interpretation of a sedimentary sequence in Kuwait, Arabian Gulf

Auther : HANS G. BUFE

Pfauenstr. 8, 0-6250 Limburg, West Germany

 

ABSTRACT

 

During foundation drillings in Suleibikhat, NW of Kuwait City, an interbedded sedimentary clastic sequence with different grades of lithification was encountered to a depth of 30 m below natural ground surface. A fluviatile and/or aeolian kind of deposition during a regressive period of the Pleistocene is postulated. Strongly lithified, silty, calcareous sands are interpreted as surface sediments (surface crusts), which have undergone cementation during sea level rise. Besides calcareous cement, quartz cement is present. This paper should be considered as apreliminary contribution to the sedimentary geology of Kuwait and should be followed by more detailed investigations
