Cambrian to Devonian strata thin onto the Arabian Shield and provide anchor points for environments of depostion (EODs) more proximal than observed in the subsurface. Sandstones in outcrop record sandy-braided fluvial, eolian, estuarine, barrier-island/tidal inlet, deltaic, shoreface, and shelf EODs; whereas, equivalents observed in the subsurface comprise more distal EODs.
