The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, covering an area of more than two million square kilometers, represents the largest part of the Arabian Peninsula. Despite its enormous size, its geology is relatively well-known. There exist not only a geological map at a scale of 1: 2,000,000 (U.S. Geological Survey and Arabian American Oil Company, 1963), but also quadrangle sheets of 1: 500,000 for the entire area (see references). However, little attention has been paid to the Quaternary Period, as it has had little bearing on prospecting for petroleum and ores, and only local importance for water supply projects.
