Cover: Main photo shows the Cenomanian to early Turonian Natih Formation at outcrop in Jabal Madmar (Oman). Eroded rocks (whitish) are composed of microporous carbonates; similar, laterally-equivalent carbonates (Mishrif Formation) form reservoirs in Iraq and Qatar. Overlying darker rocks are tighter limestones which are more resistant to erosion. SEM photomicrographs at right illustrate the microporous matrix (sub-rhombic low-Mg calcite crystals) of the Mishrif Formation. Top two photos illustrate samples from Qatar (depths 1425 m and 1402 m); sample in bottom photo is from Iraq (depth: 3825 m). Shallow-marine carbonates with microporosity are the subject of the paper by Volery et al. on pp. 313 - 326
of this issue. Photos by Chadia Volery.

International Events

Cover: Cover image shows acritarchs (top left and bottom right) and graptolites (top right and bottom left) from the Rhuddanian (lower Llandovery, Silurian) of the BG-14 core from southern Jordan. The graptolites enable precise dating of the "hot shales" in the core; the acritarchs are invaluable in the shales' palaeoenvironmental interpretation. Loydell et al. propose a new depositional model for the middle Rhuddanian "hot shale" in the BG-14 core on pp. 261-270 of this issue.

Cover: Cover image shows bitumen in a late fracture in a Lower Jurassic petroleum source rock from the Middle Atlas, Morocco. Cross-cutting relationships exist with early calcite-cemented veins (pink) and late Fe-calcite cemented veins (blue) that represent progressive burial. Bitumen-filled fractures formed during Eocene tectonic compression. Stained thin-section, matrix dolomite is unstained; fracture is abut 60 mm in width. See the related paper by Rachidi et al. (pp 111-128 of this issue)

Cover: Cover image shows two views of Jabal Hafit which towers some 1100 m above the oasis town of Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates. The upper photo from ground level encompasses the
28 km eastern flank of the mountain; the view from the top (main photo) shows an outcrop of the Lower Eocene Rus Formation with Al Ain in the background. Jabal Hafit is a doubly-plunging east-verging box fold formed during the late Miocene - Pliocene which lies along a thrust-front belt which includes several significant gas-condensate fields.
