Abstract/Summary

Brachiopods are abundant in the Oman Khuff Formation and similar brachiopod faunas are present at a few horizons in the same formation in Central Saudi Arabia. Following extensive systematic and biostratigraphic studies of these faunas, specimens from the base of the Midhnab Member of the Khuff Formation of Saudi Arabia (Buraydah Quadrangle), and from Member 3 of the Khuff Formation of the Huqf outcrop of Oman were assessed for isotope geochemistry (Sr, O and C). Dating using 87Sr/86Sr alone is not conclusive.
