Abstract

The study of the geometry and internal structure of modern aeolian deposits (sand dunes) can give a better understanding of sandstone hydrocarbon reservoirs like the A and B members of Unayzah Formation in Saudi Arabia. These members have been shown to contain depositional facies like aeolian dunes, aeolian sand sheets, and interdunes (Melvin and Heine, 2004).
