• Index volume 37, 2014

• International Events

• Cover photograph shows a view looking southwards of the gorge at Jebel Banu in the core of the Banu Anticline in the High Zagros fold-and-thrust belt, Kurdistan region of northern Iraq. Houses (bottom left) give a sense of scale. The rock units exposed are part of the Paleocene-Eocene Supersequence and include in the foreground the mixed basinal carbonates and interbedded siliciclastics of the Kolosh/Aaliji Formations. The gorge is cut into a limestone succession dominated by the Eocene Pila Spi Formation together with the underlying Sinjar Formation and overlying Avanah Formation carbonates. The Pila Spi is an important reservoir unit and exploration target in Kurdistan. Photo by Andy Horbury (Cambridge Carbonates).

• International Events

• Cover photograph shows an east-west oriented hillside to the south of the town of Monte Sant’ Angelo (visible at the top of the photo) in the Gargano Peninsula, SE Italy. Exposed at the surface are lobes of bioclastic carbonates assigned to the Upper Campanian – Maastrichtian Caramanica Formation.  The carbonates are the focus of the paper by Hairabian et al. on pp 231-250 of this issue.  Photo by A. Hairabian.

• Petrophysical characteristics of the Messinian Abu Madi Formation in the Baltim East and North fields, offshore Nile Delta, Egypt
M. I.  Abdel-Fattah (Suez Canal University, Egypt) view abstract

• International Events 

• Cover. Cover photograph shows Kangaroo Rocks, Churinga Station, far-western New South Wales, Australia (latitude 31° 47’ 56’’S, longitude 142° 41’ 25’’E). Medium- to coarse-grained quartz sandstones of the upper Cambrian to middle Ordovician Scropes Range Formation display a low dip to the north. Sedimentary structures include planar to semi-planar bedding, cross-bedding and slumped cross-bedding. Fresh sandstones are white but the outcrop surfaces display reddish iron compounds that characterise the red sands of the desert. See the related paper by Khalifa and Mills on pp. 163-182 of this issue. Photos by Kingsley Mills.

• Cover. Cover photograph shows organic-rich lime-mudstones of the upper Santonian to lower Maastrichtian Chekka Formation exposed at a quarry in northern Lebanon belonging to Cimenterie Nationale (note geologists for scale).  The inset is a zoomed section of the photograph showing bitumen in a fracture (hammer for scale). See the related paper by Bou Daher et al. on pp. 5 – 24 of this issue which considers the organic geochemical characteristics of these rocks. Photo by Samer Bou Daher.
