Wind also carried vast volumes of sediment from downslope on the exposed Arabian Gulf ramp during lower Pleistocene sea levels to 33 supply the siliciclastic and carbonate dune fields that form a characteristic element of the presentday landscape. Although hurricanes are not a feature of the Emirates, the ramp margin is wind dominated. Daily afternoon sea breezes and especially the prevailing (though largely seasonal) Shamal wind influence the local wave-induced currents, which in turn are a major factor in developing the coastal sedimentology.
