Geomorphic studies in the Arabian Peninsula have lagged far behind geologic studies. Published accounts of work that has been done are few and scattered widely throughout the literature so that it is practically impossible to gain a comprehensive picture of the geomorphology of the peninsula. This brief account, mainly descriptive, is designed to acquaint the reader with what is known about Arabian landforms and the processes that have caused them. It is hoped that this will enable him to understand and evaluate better the Quaternary events described in this volume.
