Abstract

The part of northern Oman shown on this mosaic of two Landsat images extends from Ras al Hadd in the east to the village of Wudam Alwa on the coast of the Gulf of Oman. The mosaic consists of two Landsat images printed in false color on Cibachrome material.


The three major physiographic provinces of northern Oman are readily distingui shed on the mosaic, through their peculiar tonal and textural characteristics: The coastal plain, known as the Batinah Coast , along t he Gulf of .Oman west-northwest of Muscat; the Oman Mountains; and the foothills in the southwestern part of the interior.
