Busnardo R., Granier B. (2011) Aptian ammonites of Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) // Notebooks on Geology - Letter CG2011/04 (CG2011_L04). Pp. 117-135.

The identification of some twenty ammonite fragments from oil wells drilled in offshore Abu Dhabi revealed the presence of six Aptian genera: Cheloniceras, Epicheloniceras, Gargasiceras, Colom-biceras, Pseudohaploceras, and Macroscaphites. These ammonites indicate the Furcata Zone and the succeeding Martini Zone. The Gargasian age of the upper part (HST) of the Shuaiba as well as that of the whole of the Bab are thus firmly established.
