Geography and Climate Oman falls naturally into three physical divisions: a narrow coastal plain, ranges of mountains and hills, and an interior plateau. The coastal plain along the Gulf of Oman is known as Al Batinah and is the country’s principal agricultural region. Inland from the plain lies the Jabal al Akhadar range. The coastal plain extending south along the Arabian Sea is largely barren. The climate is generally hot and arid. However, there is high humidity along the coast. The average annual temperature is about 28°C. The average annual rainfall is generally less than 102 mm.
