Abstract
The coastal area on the eastern side of the Arabs' Gulf, west of Alexandria, forms a small part of the Quaternary coastal plain of northwestern Egypt. The present coast is bordered by an colitic and biogenic sandy beach-dune ridge. Landward are a series of parallel cemented Pleistocene carbonate sand ridges capped by caliche and separated by depressions filled with lagoonal-sabkha deposits.
