In accordance with the phytogeographical division of Arabia by Léonard (1989), the sabkhat of the UAE lie within the Saharo-Sindian regional zone, which can be further subdivided into the Nubo-Sindian local centre of endemism (encompassing the coastal areas of the UAE) and the Arabian regional subzone. The latter covers the interior of the country, but the precise delimitation from the Nubo-Sindian phytochorion is difficult. Halopeplis perfoliata is a good example of a species with a Nubo-Sindian distribution pattern, occurring primarily along the coastal belt of the Arabian Peninsula.

It reaches a width of up to about 25 km, and in both the west and east of Abu Dhabi Emirate gradually leads into inland sabkha. Although sabkhat occur in deserts throughout the world, Goudie (2002) describes the coastal sabkha of Abu Dhabi as the best example of this landform type to be found anywhere, deserving World Heritage status. It is less than a few meters above high tide level. After heavy rainfall or severe northerly coastal storms in association with high tides, parts of the sabkha may become flooded.
