Field Trrips
Three post-conference excursions will be conducted on Thursday, 23rd March, 2006. The three trips will present the most important geological and environmental aspects of Emirates geology. Excursion fee is 15$=50 Dirham. Transport, lunch, refreshments and field notes will be provided for each excursion. A limit of participants for each excursion is set at 50 persons (the first 50 to register and pay the excursion fee). Coastal Sabkha of Abu Dhabi

What to see The coastal sabkha of Abu Dhabi is the “mother of all sabkhas”. For more than half a century it attracted the attention of geologists from every corner of the world. This area which changed our perception of the carbonates-evaporites system uncovers new mysteries every time you visit it. We hope that we will be able to cover most parts of the sabkha before it gets too hot to walk. Sandwithces, softdrinks and water will be avilable throught the trip. We will move through the halite sun cracks of the supratidal zone to the algal mats of the upper intertidal zone and then wonder through the mangrove stands. This is a unique opportunity to follow the tracks of Douglas Shearman with a new vision!

Trip leaders: Fadhil Sadooni (UAE University) & Hesham Shebl (ZADCO) Seats are limited. Please book early Registeration fees: AED 50 (US$15)

Much works had been carried out on these classic sites since the fifties of the last century with Shell group, Imperial College team (Graham Evans, Douglas Shearman), the Swiss team (Judith Mckenzie), Christopher Kendall, Abdulrahman Alsharhan and many more. Sites with information on Abu Dhabi sabkha For more information on the coastal sabkha of Abu Dhabi please see the online field guide of Christopher Kendall at this link: http://strata.geol.sc.edu/UAE/AbuDhabi.html More information can also be found in Ian West site at this link: http://www.soton.ac.uk/~imw/sabkha.htm

Departure: 7 am from Al-Ain Rotana Hotel What to wear We expect mild to slightly hot weather. Light cotton top and a short or jeans will be fine. You need a good long shoe that can bring you back in one piece to the car. A head cover is essential.
