Historical background

The ocean basins provide a wealth of underwater information about the two most important theories of geological science: plate tectonics and the sedimentary record of geologic history. The ocean floors also hold a vast wealth of economically important marine minerals and hydrocarbons (crude oil and natural gas).

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia that acquired considerable strategic significance from the world's industrialized countries has a long coastline on the Red Sea and Arabian Gulf. Both Red Sea and Arabian Gulf basins are home to many important marine minerals resources.
