International Events

Cover: Cover photograph shows a view of the gorge where the Karun River cuts through the Tertiary Lajin-Ab Bagh Mountains near Ardal city in the High Zagros, SW Iran. The bridge and the cultivated fields give a sense of scale. A segment of the High Zagros fault, which in general coincides with the course of the river, has thrust the Palaeozoic sedimentary succession to the left over the Cretaceous carbonates and marls which are exposed in the cliffs to the right. View is towards the SE. See the related paper by Tavakoli-Shirazi et al. on pp. 309-334. Photo by S. Tavakoli-Shirazi.

International Events

Cover: Cover photographs are of Wadi Rum, southern Jordan. Upper photograph shows a panoramic view of the Wadi with cliff-forming Cambro-Ordovician sandstones in the distance. Lower photograph shows the "Seven Pillars of Wisdom" comprising Cambrian - Lower Ordovician sandstones of the Salib, Umm Ishrin and Disi Formations resting on the peneplained surface of the Precambrian Aqaba Complex. See the related paper by Naylor et al. on pp. 205-236. Photos by Munim Al-Rawi.

International Events

Cover: Cover photograph shows an outcrop of Palaeozoic siliciclastic rocks in the north of Jebel Asba on the eastern margin of the Kufra Basin, SE Libya. A condensed section about 24 m thick of the Lower Silurian (Rhuddanian) Tanezzuft Formation overlies sandstones of the Upper Ordovician Mamuniyat Formation, and is overlain by sandstones of the Upper Silurian - Lower Devonian Akakus and Tadrart Formations. Organic-rich "hot shales" in the Tanezzuft Formation are an important source rock in western Libya and Algeria. See the related paper by Meinhold et al. on pp. 105-116 of this issue.

International Events

Cover: Cover photograph shows mixed carbonate-siliciclastic succession of Late Cretaceous age exposed in coastal cliffs between Cassis and La Ciotat in Provence, SE France. The white massive units correspond to deeper-marine carbonate mega-breccias resedimented from a northern Upper Cretaceous carbonate platform. The dark brown units at the top of the section are clastic conglomerates deposited from a southern Gilbert delta; and the yellow bedded units correspond to autochthonous calcareous sandstones, formed by sand waves, preserved in a relatively deep-marine confined basin. Average height of the cliffs is 400 m. See the related paper by Borgomano et al. on pp 5-42 of this issue. Photo by J. Borgomano.
