    A large variation in elevation and gravity anomaly prevails from the Red Sea coast to the interior of the Arabian Shield (AS) across the Asir Igneous Province (AIP); T he Asir Mountain (AM) is developed on AIP. Here the elevation varies from m, corresponding changes in F.A. are from –30 to + m, corresponding changes in F.A. are from.

    The Paleozoic Petroleum System of Central Saudi Arabia has been penetrated by numerous wells. Many major oil and gas fields have been found since the Hawtah discovery well in (McGillivray and Al-Husseini, ).The Qusaiba hot shale (gamma ray log response exceeds ° API units), in the basal portion of the Qusaiba Member of the Silurian Qalibah Formation, is the main source rock for Cited by: Seismic refraction profile.

In the area you have selected (Saudi Arabia) earthquake hazard is classified as medium according to the information that is currently available.

This means that there is a 10% chance of potentially-damaging earthquake shaking in your project area in the next 50 years. Healy J, Mooney W, Blank H, Gettings M, Kohler W, Lamson R, Leone L () Saudi Arabian seismic deep refraction profile: Final project report, U.S.

Since Saudi Arabia has low to moderate seismicity, most of buildings were designed only for gravity load.
