Book Review: The Petroleum Geology of Iraq

Index, volume 33, 2010

International Events

Cover: Main photograph shows tidal flats of the coastal sabkha of Abu Dhabi, covered with a dark-coloured microbial mat several cms thick. These Recent sabkha sediments, including dolomite, are the focus of the paper by Sadooni et al. on pp. 289-298. Dolomite formation is suggested to be mediated by microbial activity in "micro-niches" or small, isolated pore spaces. Inset boxes show a close-up of the sun-desiccated microbial mat; SEM image of dolomite rhombs; and core retrieval operations.

I. T. Abdulkadir (KFUPM, Dhahran), A. Sahin and O. M. Abdullatif view abstract

International Events

Cover: Large tubular carbonate (dolomitic) concretions litter the shore platform south of Whangaehu Beach, eastern North Island, New Zealand. The concretions have eroded out of slope mudstones of the upper Miocene Whangaehu Formation which forms the platform and which is well exposed, together with in situ concretions, in the cliffs which stretch southwards towards Cape Turnagain. Most of the concretions support near-central conduits which are suggested to have focused the upward escape of hydrocarbon gases in a palaeo-cold seep system. See the related paper by Pearson et al. on pp 205 - 220 of this issue. Photo provided by the University of Waikato Cold Seep Research Group.

International Events

Cover: Outcrop photograph shows Early Devonian sandstones exposed in the Russian Harbour region on the Barents Sea (western) coastline of the northern Novaya Zemlya archipelago, Arctic Russia. Solid bitumen occurs in joints and fractures in Devonian carbonates in northern Novaya Zemlya. See the related paper by Guo et al. on pp. 105-122 of this issue.

International Events

Cover: Cover image shows giant cannonball concretions in the Lower Carboniferous Marar Formation, Tinedhan Anticline, Western Libya. These calcite concretions formed within fluvial sandstones and grew during shallow burial. The Marar sandstones are potential reservoir rocks in the Ghadames Basin, and understanding the distribution of cements, which reduces the overall pore volume, is a critcal factor. See the related paper by Fröhlich et al. on pp. 3-18 of this issue. (Photograph by Sebastian Fröhlich, North Africa Research Group, University of Manchester).
