Owliaie H, Abtahi A, Heck R (2006) Pedogenesis and clay mineralogical investigation of soils formed on gypsiferous
and calcareous materials, on a transect, southwestern Iran.
It was excavated from argillaceous gypsiferous
shales in an abandoned quarry that was exploited more than 30 years ago for the mining of gypsum.

soils in Northwest Isfahan, Iran," Journal of Agricultural Science and Technology, vol.
Soils around the river region are sandy to loamy sand at places underlined by lime concretion and gypsiferous
The soil of Cholistan desert is mostly alkaline, saline, and gypsiferous
composed of schists, gneiss, granites, and slates (Arshad et al., 2008).
The basin fill sedimentary sequence is comprised of sandstones, conglomerates, siltstone and gypsiferous
clays deposited in varying time and space and different environmental conditions.
Soil water content and salinity determination using different dielectric methods in saline gypsiferous
It can be found in a gypsiferous
and calcareous gravelly deserts soil and the fruiting bodies appears from January to April in Kuwait (8), while in Saudi Arabia appears from November to March (9), these periods is directly related to climatic conditions.
Still, the most worrying thing might be that this terminological tangle has also helped to hide the existing and persisting difficulties in the definition of what gypsophily is, or in more precise words, which the real reason is behind the restriction of some plants to gypsiferous
soils or the underlying mechanism involved in gypsum tolerance.
Other Pleistocene gypsiferous
deposits were recorded by Williams (1999) in various offshore wells such as at Umm Shaif oilfield and the Zakum oilfield, which he, in contrast, interpreted as peritidal / sabkha in origin.
Chlorides could come, from percolation through the salty lands and the infiltration of irrigation water .In the study area the chlorides can have several origins (SD531.73: mg/l):-The Sandy clays gypsiferous
Mio-Pliocene-Quaternary that cover the entire basin.
