The Gulf of Aden shallow subsurface beach sediments at the mouths of wadis Fuwwah, Ar Rukayb and Shuhair near Al-Mukalla, Yemen are dominantly moderately to well-sorted fine-grained sands, classified geochemically in general as quartz arenite. Texturally, the sediments show a relatively similar average mean size.

The Mount Simon Formation extends into the subsurface as far east as western Ohio where it is described as tan, friable, moderately sorted, rounded, coarse- to very coarse-grained, siliceous quartz arenite with minor heterolithic sandstone-mudstone couplets (rhythmites) and a quartz granule conglomerate (Saeed and Evans, 2012).
Despite color differences caused by hematite staining, these bodies are composed of lithic arenite sandstone comparable to that in the overlying multistorey bodies.
The grotto was formed of arenite rock, and in it there was a small source of water that formed a small pool approximately two and a half square meters in area and 50 cm deep.

Around 80 percent of Brazil's current domestic oil output of about 1.9 million barrels a day comes from the Campos Basin at much shallower depths from arenite rock, which allows Petrobras to re-inject gas and water to maintain oil pressure.
Samples located in deep water (> 20 m) were composed of moderately sorted coarse silt (38 [micro]m-63 pm) with shell and organic fragments, whereas those at shallow depths (< 10 m) were composed of very well sorted very fine arenite sand (63 [micro]m-125 [micro]m; Table 1).
