• Cover photograph shows Yangtiao village in SE Guizhou Province, SW China, where the basal Cambrian Niutitang Formation is exposed in low cliffs (the outcrop is located just above the heads of the two co-authors pictured). Shale-chert couplets in the Niutitang Formation and their relationship to submarine hydrothermal processes and organic matter preservation are discussed by Liu et al. in the paper on pp. 411- 432 of this issue. Inset shows interbedded shales and cherts in the lower part of the studied section (hammer for scale).

• International Events

• Cover photograph shows the Grabar ridge (1200 m) in the Paklenica National Park in the Velebit Mountains, Croatia. The ridge is composed of alternating platform carbonates (grey to dark grey mudstones to skeletal wackestones) and brownish dolomites of the Lower Jurassic (Hettangian) part of the Mali Alan Formation of the Adriatic Carbonate Platform. The stratigraphy and petroleum geology of the Croatian part of the Adriatic Basin is considered in the paper by Velić et al. on pp. 281-300 of this issue. Photograph by Ivo Velić.

• International Events

• Cover photograph shows the angular unconformity between the Lower Albian Kiklah Formation and the Uppermost Albian – Cenomanian Sidi as Sid Formation in a cutting on the Gharyan – Tripoli highway, near Bughilan (Jabal Nafusah, NW Libya). The unconformity may represent a phase of increased subsidence along the fl anks of the Sabratha Basin. Potential source rocks in the Jabal Nafusah area are discussed in the paper by Abohajar et al. on pp. 119–156 of this issue. Photograph by Stéphane Bodin.

• Cover photograph shows Cima Canali (2900 m), a peak in the Pale di San Martino in the Dolomite Mountains of northern Italy. Cima Canali is composed of poorly-stratified Middle Triassic dolomite;  rocks in the Vallon (valley) delle Lede (2250 m) in the foreground consist of bedded platform dolomite with thin “cycle caps” which weather to form recessive ledges. The origin of the dolomite in the Pale di San Martino area is considered in the paper by Blendinger et al. on pp. 5 - 36 of this issue. Photograph by Stephanie Lohmeier.
