【91755213】Quaternary Research：Neogene to Quaternary uplift history along the passive margin of the northeastern Arabian Peninsula, East Hajar Mountain Oman：
This work explores the uplift history of the best exposed marine terraces in the northeastern Arabian Peninsula (eastern AlHajar Mountains). A multidisciplinary approach was employed, including a topographic survey, 14C dating, thin sectionstudies, and scanning electron microscopy analyses. Six distinctive marine terraces with widths ranging from tenth ofmeters to kilometers and elevations from 5 to ~400 m were studied. These terraces record an along-strike heterogeneousuplift history, while they show temporally variable uplift rates ranging between 0.9 to 6.7 mm/yr, which correlates wellwith other published uplift rates of marine terraces of the eastern Arabian Peninsula. We attribute the variable uplift alongstrike of the terraces, to a combination of uplift mechanisms: (1) during early to mid-Miocene along deep-rooted reversefaults that bound large crustal-scale blocks, (2) Pliocene or post-Pliocene uplift on the outer wall of the forebulge of thelower Arabian Plate as it bends to enter the Zagros-Makran subduction zone, and (3) a possible slowdown of subductionfor the past ~40 ka.
