This geosuture appears to merge with the second geosuture, and thus also joins the Owen F. Z. at the Oman Abyssal Plain. (4) A fourth geosuture, whieh appears to belong to the aforementioned group of three, cuts across the ophiolite belt of the Oman Peninsula a few tens of kilometers west of Muscat (Figures 1 and 5) along the northwestern limit of the Infracambrian Salt Basin of SE Arabia (Brown, 1972). Its northeastward extension, beyond the Gulf of Oman, marks a facies divide that occurs across the Makran Range; west of it the ophiolite belt is appreciably wider in comparison with its eastward extension.

And Canada. A Diameter versus Cumulative Distribution graph of these features strongly resembles the similarly plotted curves of Lunar and Martian impact craters of the same size range, indicating that these large Earth features may have a similar origin and history. Tbe one hundred-plus features mapped are made up of the composite-edges of relief features, rivers, and land-water boundaries, and span terranes of a11 ages, an indieation that they are manifestations imposed by deep basement structure.
