For the investigation of the Quaternary morphogeny of the Arabian Peninsula the study of the wadis is of utmost importance. The phases of erosion and accumulation are interesting not only for the geomorphology but also for studies of the climate and its changing conditions. Right at its beginning the Quaternary project thus planned to carry out field reconnaissance in the areas of the large wadi systems. As far as possible a correlation of the studies concerning the coastal regions on the one hand, and the investigations of the wadi systems on the other, was envisaged.
