Arabia - Arabia - Economy: The mineral resource of greatest value is oil. The Arabian Peninsula has the largest oil reserves in the world. With the exception of deposits in Yemen, the Arabian oil fields lie in the same great sedimentary basin as the fields of Iran and Iraq. Although oil was discovered in Iran in , the first field on the Arabian side of the basin, in Bahrain, was not found.

    This is the first volume in a six-part series which charts the flora of the Arabian Peninsula and the Socotran archipelago. It covers all native flowering plants and ferns as well as major cultivated and amenity plants of Saudi Arabia, Yemen, the Sultanate of Oman, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait. The first part of this volume gives an introduction to topology and geology.   The Arabian Peninsula’s Climate. From the miracles of the sayings of the Prophet Muhammad, may the mercy and blessings of God be upon him, is that the Arabian Peninsula was once a lush green land full of trees and rivers.

1. Introduction The State of Kuwait is located in the northeastern part of the Arabian Peninsula at the northwestern end of the Arabian Gulf. Kuwait covers an area of ~ 17, km2, borders Iraq on the north and west and Saudi Arabia on the southwest.

The regional gradient is to the northeast at ~ 2 m/km (Bou-Rabee, ). The Arabian Peninsula may contain the Arabian Desert: one of the largest deserts on the planet, with an approximate area of one million mi2 (), however, unlike what one might suppose, it is not entirely sand dunes and desolation. A series of structural and isopach maps have been constructed to model the tectonic history of Kuwait.

These indicate that the geological history of Kuwait has been one of general subsidence, interrupted on a number of occasions by periods of uplift.
